Coachella "Style" Weekend Two

Except for a few exceptions, there wasn't much "style" at the second weekend of Coachella, but I couldn't leave for California without discussing a few of the looks...

One of the exceptions: Rosie Huntington-Whitely..this outfit is everything! 
Cute festival girls

Zoe Kravitz in a cute white knit dress and Alexander Wang bag.
Listen up Dan Humphry, I know it's Coachella, but would it hurt to
 take a shower? And maybe ease up on the ganja so you can actually
open your eyes a bit. Sick out!
Speaking of white knit dresses & drugs...Any guesses on what Emma Roberts was
 on to  think this was a good idea?? 
Oh sweet jesus, NO!

Now I am not the best dressed person in the world, but I know the difference between right and wrong and while I LOVE Emma Roberts, these outfits are 100% WRONG!! UGH..just awful!!

Have a great week everyone!!!

What to Pack: Sunny San Diego

Today is my last post for 1 entire week & I am thrilled to tell you why. Monday, I am headed off to San Diego with one of my best friends and I CANNOT wait!!! San Diego was my home for quite some time & I  have only been back a couple of times since moving. Our plan is to catch up with amazing friends, relax on the beach {temperature pending} or pool, shop and relax!!! Couldn't imagine a better time..if only my husband would meet us there...

Coachella Style: What All the Cool Kids Wore

So I'm sure most of you know that the first weekend of Coachella has now ended and so far, the style/ people watching from my computer {such a nerd} has been amazing. Amazing in good ways and horrendous ways. I would like to go through my favorite looks and then towards the end I will show you some looks that should NEVER be worn anywhere...not even in the privacy of one's home. I am talking to you Vanessa Hudgens. You are not a hippie bag lady so don't pretend to be just because you are at a concert. I'm sure she heard my message loud and clear. Anyway, here we go:

Kate Bosworth in a jacket borrowed from her Boyfriend,  a Vanessa Bruno dress,
Rayban Aviators & the staple for any outdoor festival: Hunter boots
Diane Kruger looking super cute in a Stella McCartney dress
& suede booties.. similar ones found here
Such a cute outfit! 
I know it's simple and looks like she doesn't have pants on, but I love it!

Love me some Dree!! Isabel Marant top, Chloe boots, Dolce & Gabbana purse
Amazing:Lily Donaldson, Cara Delevigne {her T-shirt..haha} and Karlie Kloss

Jennifer Dietz in a cozy zip up hoodie, Mother jeans & Isabel Marant sneakers
Wait one mother effing minute. WHAT are you doing in MY swimsuit, lady????
What's happening here? Are those pant boots? can't get worse than just can't!
Nevermind.. this is THE WORST! It looks like an Urban Outfitters clearance rack
threw up on her! Bleh

Alright I'm done judging. And speaking of Coachella, did you see TUPAC???? I have to admit, I am a gigantic Tupac fan...have been since I was in high school. I almost died when I saw his Hologram!!

First Look: Altuzarra for J. Crew

CFDA winner, {& one of my favorite designers} Joseph Altuzarra has been hard at work creating a collection for J. Crew. Altuzarra drew inspiration from Brigitte Bardot and the French Riviera for his 7 piece collection full of French preppy dresses, sweaters and even shoes. It's kind of the opposite of what one would expect from Altuzarra, but the classic colors, gingham prints and mariner stripes are perfect for the J. Crew lovers!  The line will hit on Thursday so mark your calendars!! In other exciting J. Crew news, CFDA runners up, Pamela Love and Creatures of the Wind have also created collections and their lines will hit stores in June and July.

Tuesday Shoesday: Showdown

I have been lusting after these Victoria sandals by Givenchy for quite some time now and was about 99% sure that I was going to splurge on them.  Then I asked myself how much I would actually wear them. So I have also been considering these Givenchy geometric cut out sandals {right}. I thought they might be more practical, but maybe aren't as fun. Well then I found the geometric cut out sandal in gold glitter and it turned my whole world upside down. What horrible problems to have right?? So, I thought I'd see what others thought of my two choices. Should it be the the Victoria's? The gold glitter cut out sandals {more practical} or the black cut out sandals {most practical}? Hmmm decisions decisions!

My Three Least Favorite Words: Out of Stock

I saw my dream bikini on the other day and when I found out it was Xhilaration Juniors from Target, my heart stopped!  I immediately clicked on the link to buy the suit and what did I see?? "Out of Stock". Oh and they only sold it online. UGH! I felt like I had been punched. Give me this suit, Target!!!!!!

Had To Have It: Womb Chair & Ottoman

Via This Is Glamorous

via our house! Yay!!
I have been in love with the womb chair for as long as I can remember so imagine my excitement when I saw one at my favorite home store, Blue Print. What was even better was that in wasn't 8 gadrillion dollars! I don't know if it is the Eero Saarinen or not, but I don't care because my husband loves it {always hard to find something we both love} and it is so incredibly comfortable!

Coachella Style

While I would love to go to Coachella to see the shows, I think I would get  just as much enjoyment in the people watching. Whenever spring rolls around and it's Coachella time, I kick myself for never going when I lived in California. To make myself feel better, I will just put this outfit on, blare some Santogold and pretend I'm sitting next to Kate Bosworth as we jam out! God, I'm cool...

Weekend Wrap Up

Happy Monday everyone!! I hope you had a great weekend whether you were celebrating Passover or Easter or nothing at all!! I had a very fun time with friends, family and lots and lots of animals. I haven't talked about my love for animals on the blog before, but any of my friends can tell you that I am completely obsessed. Anyway, I don't know what was going on but we ended up rescuing an injured baby wren that was in our backyard and a homeless pup that was wandering around my brother's neighborhood. Oh and who could forget our lovely Saturday with snakes, lizards and other creepy crawlers. My niece...yes niece not nephew... had a birthday party with the "Critter Guy" who brought over an assortment of creatures. I thought it sounded like a blast, but it took some convincing to get my husband to the party. By the end, Matt conquered his biggest fear by holding a tarantula!! I think part of the reason he did it is that one of my niece's friends called him "A little girl". hahaha!

See, they are very nice and not to mention fancy!

For anyone who missed it on Friday, go check out A Dose of Pretty to see my go to accessories!

Celebrity Styling Series with Liz of Sequins and Stripes

TGIF!!! I am beyond excited that Liz from Sequins & Stripes is participating in the Celebrity Styling Series today! In case you don't know Liz Schneider { I mean...really?}, she is the super stylish author of Sequins & Stripes and has her own style consulting company {my dream job}, Elizabeth Schneider Style. She is seriously such an inspiration for me and maybe one day I will be brave enough as Liz to start my own company. Anyway, here she is!!

Hi there! It's Liz from the fashion + style blog, Sequins & Stripes, and I am thrilled to be participating in Annie + Elizabeth's Celebrity Styling Series today! Lately, I have been obsessing over Elle Fanning feminine style. She plays up the sweet and sultry look all too well while maintaining her innocence, not an easy task! I adore her flirty dresses accented by fabulous shoes and accessories, sometimes creating an edgy look but always staying soft and sweet. 

Sassy, sweet, gorgeous eyes, beautiful hair, and an effortless + chic sense of style. Pretty perfect. 

I love the way a girly dress can become edgy with a few black accessories or soft and sweet with a more neutral palette. Either way, I am seriously crushing on Elle Fanning's style. 

A huge thank you the A+E for inviting me over today! Make sure to stop by Sequins & Stripes to find daily inspiration for a styled life, and if you're interested in styling services, stop by Elizabeth Schneider Style!
