The Road Less Traveled

tie dye dress Last week we witnessed a great heatwave that came our way and made every LA'er melt while trying to duck for cover. And in the craziest times like those where we all felt unprepared soldiers fighting this battle called a heatwaves (or global warming), it makes you hope that you were able to be fully prepared for battle with the perfect summer fighting outfits in toe. And to me, nothing says fighting summer (and heat) more than the perfect long flowy dress. Giving you enough airy space to breathe and in this case, a long drapey back line to still keep it open and fresh, if you don't have a long summer dress in your closet already, it's a definite must.

Purple Hair Don't Care

For those who follow me on Instagram, you have seen that I have made a little big subtle change to my hair... and that's in the form of purple. It seems like in the past year or so we've come to see some crazy, fun, and fierce hair colorings take over the fashion world with people like Chloe Norgaard and Kelly Osbourne making neons and pastels not only fun and acceptable, but more so of a standard in hair. I've been dying to switch my hair game up for quite some time (coming from the girl who thought an ombre was extravagant), but had been nervous to take the plunge. Experimenting with hair chalk here and there to see how I'd feel about doing a little colored action, I instantly fell in love and knew I wanted to make it a grander and more permanent ordeal in my life. And that's when I found out about Pravana and their magical hair products. Just in time to pair perfectly with Coachella that was at that point right around the corner, I met up with hair colorist mastermind and extraordinaire Danny Moon (who's responsible for Nicole Richie's colored number) at Andy LeCompte Salon who Pravana Purple'd me up with this hair that has made me fall in love every time I look at it. True life: I may now be addicted to coloring my hair fun colors forever moving forward. Can you blame a girl when it looks like this?

As I've been living vicariously through all of your fabulous Coachella Weekend 2 pictures and Instagrams over the weekend, I round up my Coachella fashion posts with this colorful strappy number. Wearing a long floral skirt one day and a fun slip on dress another, I had to pay a homage to my fave Coachella ways and looks by doing a standard pool party fashion look with a shorts/ bathing suit combo which has always been my go-to favorite. What originally sold me on this bathing suit was it's fun colors and pattern. But what won me over with obsession when putting it on was its epic strappy back details. Pairing it with these super comfortable denim shorts and an equally fun and matching fanny pack, this just made me want to be in a sun suit all day every day.
