At brunch with five girlfriends on Saturday, the waiter took a glance around the table and declared, “You all look very Coachella-y.” To which everyone replied with a collective groan.
While we all feel that we’ve outgrown the whole hedonistic music festival thing, as I glanced at all of us – the printed romper, the flower crown, the flowy bohemian maxi dress – I couldn’t deny that we were all serving serious festival fashion vibes.
There’s something about Coachella style that’s incredibly appealing. It’s fun, easy going and sexy. And there are few retailers who aren’t currently shoving the style down our throats right now.
If I had been talked into attending the festival last weekend, this is probably what I would have worn. I recently purchased this romper – my first – and I’m totally loving it. I usually tend to avoid wearing shorts – being on the taller side (I’m 5’8”), I often feel as though the shorter versions appear to show too much skin, and the longer ones just look frumpy. Sticking with flats versus heels and topping the one-piece with a structured jacket help to balance things out a bit.
I decided trying something new with my hair this weekend as well. The back of the look is just your run-of-the-mill sock bun. For the front, I parted my hair down the middle, braided each side down, and secured them just under the bun. For a little extra fun – and as a nod to the flower crown look – I took a few remaining pieces from a faux floral arrangement adorning my entryway table and pinned them just above the braids.
