A desert mirage.
You would think I traveled to Thailand and back last weekend. One day I’ll make my way across the globe but in the meantime I found a little desert oasis in the middle of Indio, California. Compared to an Indonesian trip this place is basically in my back yard. To put you in perspective of a 180 degree change of scenery, Desert Dweller was shot just 5 miles from here! I’m in love with this new designer, Liberty Garden, and their simple designs with unique touches. This little black suede dress can go from global bohemian to rockin western with just a few accessory changes. I’m walkin out the door later with this little number and my favorite cowboy boots! The cut out fringe on the neckline just asks for layers of necklaces like this rad piece from LA Hip Threads or you can keep it simple and go sans jewels. Any way you do it, it rocks!

Ruins & dunes.
Driving through Indio on our way to Coachella, there was a little pull-off that caught our eye. An almost completely demolished structure stood out perfectly in the sand just asking to be photographed. There were only a few knee high fences that we had to jump to enter the ever expansive run of dunes that I’ve only imagine existed in movies. The beautiful pure white sand only rivals the sand of some of the most beautiful beaches I’ve visited in the Gulf of Mexico. A perfect fit for a few of my favorite bohemian western pieces…my handmade leather belt by Real Leather Stuff and cow skull necklace by Illuminare Boutique. Continue reading
Showcasing Noa Elle’s summer collection.
Last month I had the wonderful opportunity to work with a favorite LA designer of mine, Noa Elle. I’ve featured their gorgeous designs a few times on my blog (Meet Me at the Rodeo & Daisy Chain) and now I got to be a featured model for their summer collection! The mixture of lace, chiffon and other fabrics is spot on for all you boho summer bunnies. The prints, the colors and the cuts of the designs fall so perfectly into place and have such an effortlessly sexy style. Continue reading
Enter the world of design goddess, Pachamama Bohemian.
I can’t begin to explain how lucky I am to have built up wonderful friendships over the course of my two years of blogging! Not knowing exactly what I was getting into, I would seek out companies with a similar small start-up fan base that encompassed the same lifestyle and designs that I would only dream of owning. Pachamama Bohemian and I were completely drawn to each other. It was the start of an amazing collaboration that I’m sure has many more years to come! On a recent visit to Florida I had them amazing opportunity of finally getting to met in person the creative genius behind Pachamama Bohemian. Val dreams up insanely gorgeous and authentic bohemian dresses, purses, shawls kimonos, and jewels that have a true global feel but made to fit comfortably into anyone’s wardrobe. I couldn’t speak more highly of her designs and sense of style! Continue reading
Soaring colors at Coachella.
Whenever someone asks me my favorite color, I always have a difficult time answering. There are so many shades of gorgeous magentas, oranges, reds, turquoise and yellows, it’s just so hard to choose one. While I was packing my suitcase for Coachella, I was so inspired by the vivid vintage print of this maxi skirt from Shabby Babe Vintage. Floral prints from the 60’s and 70’s are hands down my favorite. Something about the colors being so simple but bright without blinding neon. These rad prints in the form of a maxi skirt is the perfect combination. Paired with a little crop top and statement necklace, these are not only my festival staples but go-to summer threads.
