A Desert Getaway

I had an amazing time last weekend away in the desert enjoying the sun, the pool and some music at the Coachella Music Festival. As you may have noticed, Coachella is not only a music festival anymore, it has now become a fashion show, where everyone from celebrities to models to bloggers are dressed in the most coveted looks from head-to-toe. That being said, I definitely had to find the perfect outfit to wear that wasn’t too uncomfortable but still super cute. That being said, I opted for the Emme Lace Romper  and the Arrow Layer Necklace (similar piece). I really love pieces that you can wear more than once for different occasions and this romper was exactly that kind of piece. You can easily wear it casual in the day or dress it up at night with the right accessories and shoes.

Art Walk in Costa Mesa

FullSizeRender nicole standing closeupstripeddress nicole walk Living in Southern California, you sometimes take for granted all of the sunny days we get. But yesterday, I decided to take advantage of the gorgeous weather and roam around the city a bit. I was excited to stumble upon this cool and modern space in Costa Mesa called Dax Gallery. There was an amazing mural on the side of the building that caught my eye and it made just the perfect backdrop for a few photos. I wore this versatile and comfortable striped dress and teamed it with simple strappy flats sandals and a black tote bag. It was easy and effortless, exactly the kind of ensemble you want to wear on an off-duty day.

I am so excited that the weather in California has finally been cold enough for sweaters. Last weekend, I definitely wanted to be comfortable without sacrificing my style so I decided to wear my Lila Open-Knit Sweater with leggings and ankle boots. It is slightly sheer so I wore the Basic Stretch Cami in nude underneath. If you don’t want to layer yours over a cami, then a cute alternative is a plaid shirt or a simple button-up top.

The holiday season calls for red lipstick, so I opted for the Matte Lipstick in Eden by NYX which popped perfectly against the white sweater. This lipstick didn’t smudge at all and it literally stayed on all day- which is definitely a must when you wear red lipstick!
