It's hard to think that it's only been four days since I got back from Coachella--and now just a few hours shy from another weekend in Palm Springs--because even the recovery process takes effort. As I'm trying to squeeze in doing as much as I can before I head back out to the desert, I'm also attempting to maintain a level of comfort by easing the wardrobe pieces a little. I've been living in these drapey pants from A&F--layered under a (new favorite) cami, and a netted sweater in beige for good measure--for some time now. The pants are so soft and roomy, which makes them perfect for these fast-paced days. Paired with easy and pretty top layers, a hat to cover unkempt hair, and your trusty black boots... the days just seem to go by a lot easier this way.

Olivia and I headed over to Palm Springs with the Cynthia Vincent crew Thursday afternoon - it was a gorgeous day, us both clad in our favorite Cynthia Vincent pieces from spring and in a car packed with insurmountable boots, dresses, bikinis, snacks, beverages, and everything else in between. As soon as we settled into our beautiful abode, Olivia and I headed over to the Korakia Pensione to unwind and bask in its unbelievable beauty (more on that below). Despite having only slept one hour (slept? Napped maybe more like it? Or really just shut my eyes for a little bit ha) the night before, our quick journey over to Palm Springs was so, so exciting - I didn't even nap then. This would be my first time experiencing Coachella and I was more than ecstatic to go with such a great group of girls.

Straight to the snacks, and pretty much our diet for the next three days: flax seed tortilla chips, lots of guac and salsa, and spiked pink lemonade. Perfect. Lindsey from CV was THE best hostess/cool older-cousin-I-never-had. Unpacked our belongings, dipped our feet for a few and then Olivia and I went over to the Korakia to soak in the calmness before Coachella.

As Lindsey was setting the house up for the weekend, Olivia and I retreated to the Korakia, a gorgeous (this is an understatement) escape in the land of desert escapes. This gem housed two villas, one Moroccan inspired and the other Mediterranean - both equally magical and in all ways perfect. Serene, beautiful, and so alive. Olivia and I couldn't stop fawning over every inch of the Korakia, and once you've visited, you'd understand. Anyway, that about wraps up our Thursday, Coachella Eve! I'll post some more photos on the days that followed in a post tomorrow. Happy Wednesday xo

Just wanted to share with you a few photos from a shoot I did last weekend with from Sybil of Style Wink and Madison Boutique in celebration of Coachella. I teamed up with Madison and Sybil to give away three VIP tickets to Weekend 2 and the winners were just announced yesterday (check out Madison on Instagram)! Thank you to all who entered from my Instagram, and congrats to the three winners! Hope to run into you girls this weekend xo

I'm hoping to get some photos from this past weekend up very soon. It was my first Coachella experience ever and I had a blast - can't quite explain the feeling. It was a stressful 3-4 days with events and parties on top of the festival, but now that it's over, I miss it a ton. Looking forward to trying it again in a few days; hopefully I get to immerse myself fully in the music this second time around.

Ps. another thanks to those who entered the Luisaviaroma giveaway. The winner of €250 is Ria Michelle; congrats and expect an email shortly!

When cozy and comfort meet design that makes it okay to step out in pseudo pyjamas. I'm still very much on this train, especially with the weather currently in a state of in-between and all this frenzy surrounding Coachella prepping. Joggers (what a fancy name for sweatpants, thanks Aussies) are crucial staples at the moment as I make my rounds with meetings and appointments. It's been a manic two weeks and it hasn't ceased as Coachella is coming nearer (sorry for the delayed posting!). I'm headed over to Indio tomorrow and will be covering the festival on my Instagram, and more photos to follow on the blog after I get back! But until the very last minute when I have to switch into denim cut-offs and frilly dresses, find me in sweats. Some of my favorite ones here:
