dress: spell gypsy collective || hat: lack of color || sandals: free people (similar) || caitlin's dress: majorelle

Woah, look at me, posting frequently and stuff. *Knocks on wood.* Definitely don't want to jinx this semi-routine I'm getting in.

One of the biggest accomplishments I've had in 2018 so far has been the opportunity to partner with Revolve on a monthly basic just styling their clothes. Not a paid thing, just love the opportunity to work with such an awesome brand that I've shopped on for years. For Coachella they sent me a bunch of new clothes to style and obviously Coachella is only 3 days so I had a lot of clothes leftover that I wanted to shoot.

By the way, we stayed at the Rowan Kimpton Palm Springs and it was amazing. No, this isn't sponsored, I was just amazed by the quality of the hotel. It was decorated in a very updated mid-century modern way that made everything look picture friendly. So if you're ever looking for somewhere to stay, definitely look into The Rowan. I would definitely stay there again, or I'd look into Airbnb's simply because there are some cute ones in Palm Springs! I know Cody and I will definitely come back to the area to go to Joshua Tree this year. Can't wait.

Anyway enough of my rambling about how awesome Palm Springs is, here are the outfits I wore out and about while in Palm Springs for Coachella!

So those are my outfits from Palm Springs, CA. I want to know, have you ever been to Palm Springs? I definitely want to return during a non-Coachella time so I can truly explore the city because there were so many wonderful photo opps at every turn and cute places to stay. I can't wait to go back. Let me know if you have any recommendations for next time I return!! Love you guys.

XOXO.

Coachella 2018 was amazing. Honestly the word "amazing" is probably an understatement because I had the time of my life.

If the opportunity ever presents itself to go to a music festival, any genre, go. I never considered myself someone who would like music festivals but ever since last year when I went to my first one, I've been addicted. 

If you haven't seen my post I did recapping my outfits at Faster Horses, a country music festival, check it out here for a little Stagecoach inspiration! I'll also be forever jealous if you are going to Stagecoach so rub it in my face as much as possible please and thank you. Must live through you all if you go.

Back to Coachella. Here are my outfits. Let's do this.

Day 1


dress: spell & the gypsy collective (ON SALE) || boots: old chloe dupe || belt: free people || sunglasses: quay (cheaper dupe)

Day 1 was Cody's favorite outfit that I wore during Coachella and honestly it was probably the boujiest. I've been saving this dress from Spell for months now because when I bought it I knew I would want to wear it for Coachella. I actually scored this dress on sale a few months ago for $100 off the original price. It's a showstopper that's for sure. It's available in 2 sizes still so shop it here while you can!

I feel like the thing that really pulled this look together was the sunglasses. Apparently these sunglasses were *the* sunglasses to have this festival season because I saw everyone wearing them. So if you want to be basic with me, pick them up, they are by the brand Quay but Free People has a pair of dupes too.

Day 2


top: majorelle || bottoms: majorelle || boots: jeffrey campbell (similar) || hat: lack of color || necklaces: jay nicole || backpack: jansport

Day 2 was the actual 1st day of the #RevolveFestival you probably saw everyone posting about so I decided to rock my latest set from the Revolve brand Majorelle. I love this brand, it's definitely one of my favorites along with House of Harlow. This set was comfortable and surprisingly very flattering. I wasn't sure how it would look having such a high crop top being that I'm not a small but I liked the look of it! I'm wearing a medium in both the top and bottom.

This booties are actually from Jeffrey Campbell/Free People but they are definitely not meant to be worn from 12pm-12am. I thought my feet were going to fall off for fashion. 

Day 3


dress: for love & lemons || shoes: jeffrey campbell

Day 3 was my personal favorite day of Coachella and also my favorite outfit that I think I've worn to date. When I saw this For Love & Lemons dress, I knew I had to have it. For Love & Lemons makes my favorite dresses, hands down. No competition. This dress is probably my new favorite white dress from them (and I've got quite the collection, whoops sorry bank account.)

I actually scored this dress from their current collection on sale at Bloomingdales because they were having a Friends & Family sale whenever I came across it. It's not on sale anymore but incase you want to swoop this dress (which I encourage 100%) you can shop it here.

Because my feet were killing from the day before (and I mean they actually had a pulse) I decided to go the flat route for my shoes. I picked up this pair of Jeffrey Campbells from poshmark... I was pretty shocked when I found them because they were the prettiest shoes I've seen in a long time. They were actually super comfortable but because they are old, I can't link them for you.



So friends, I must ask, what was your favorite outfit of mine from Coachella? Did you like Day 1 like Cody, Day 3 like me? Let me know in the comments! As always, thanks for reading!


It's here, festival season is here and everyone is excited. Last year I had the pleasure of attending both Bonnaroo and Faster Horses, two completely different festivals, and during those times, I learned my lessons on what are actually "essentials" during the festivals.

This year I am starting festival season out at Coachella with JanSport and I couldn't be more excited! We leave early Friday morning and so I figured a "whats in my bag" would be appropriate! So let's dive in, let's talk about what I'm bringing in my JanSports for Coachella.


My essentials:

First things first, I know what you're thinking... hot sauce Sarah? I'm sorry I have a hot sauce obsession. Now some places won't let you have liquids in your bag, so I recommend getting the super mini versions that are good for one serving. They are like the size of a quarter. I personally love festival food and just having the added spice of my hot sauce makes it even better.

Don't pack your entire face of makeup in your bag because that's just a waste of space. Bring a blotting powder and concealer, it's all you really need! I might blot my face before a picture but I'm definitely not going to touch up every makeup on my face!

I don't go on trips without my external battery and iPhone charger so why would Coachella be any different? I'm not trying to get lost somewhere without a friend and a dead battery. No thank you! External batteries are probably the thing I recommend packing the most.

You know when you get really sweaty and your hair sticks to the back of your neck? It happens. Thankfully I'll have my hair ties packed away in my JanSport fanny pack so the moment I feel overheated, my hair is going up!

A tragic story... I started my period at Bonnaroo days earlier than I was supposed to and I didn't pack tampons. Even if you don't think you'll be on your period, pack a tampon or two in your bag. You can never be too prepared! Or you might be the savior to someone who needs one.

Last but not least, don't forget your sunglasses! Don't bring super expensive sunglasses to a festival, that's like wearing them on a college Spring Break... a big no-no. You don't want to worry about dropping them and someone accidentally stepping on them. You can find such cute and cheap sunglasses on Amazon Prime for like $10. Trendy and affordable, yes please.

So those are the things that are my MUST CARRY items in my JanSport bags for Coachella. What are your must haves for festival season? Let me know in the comments. I'd love to hear your feedback. If you're interested in any of the backpacks in this post, check out JanSport here

XOXO.
dresser: apt2b || dress: free people || hat: lack of color || lamp: target

The Target near me decided to put out their Opalhouse at Target line early since it isn't supposed to release until Sunday. Thank goodness I got to see everything in real life before I dropped some serious cash on the stuff! 

My initial thought was simple... underwhelmed. But upon further inspection, the stuff is pretty good for the price, although there are some things I think you should probably not invest your money in & get swept up in the hype of. 

Let's talk Opalhouse, shall we?

Initial Thoughts: When I first found out about the Opalhouse line coming to Target I was like this is too damn good to be true, what's the catch? I think I still kinda feel this way. For those of you who don't really know what the line is or haven't heard about it yet, it's basically an eclectic, bohemian line that Target is putting out. Amazing right? Yeah I think so too. Think affordable Anthropologie.

What I'll Be Purchasing

This wood bead and pom-pom garland that's under $15!

The rattan chairs are to die for! I haven't seen them in person yet so I hope they disappoint. I love the look of the high fan back ones, might get two for the dining table.

The bedding is also super cute from the looks of it, I don't have high standards since they are like 1/4 the price of Anthropologie. I think the Moroccan Wedding Quilt just might end up in my basket come release day.

Macrame garland looking pretty on fleek if you ask me. 

I am super into the lamps for this line. I feel like I searched forever to find some "decent" lamps that I wasn't in love with and now I don't have to search high and low anymore. I might have already purchased one of the floor lamps... Oops.



Worth the Money

The pillows! The pillows from this collection are so cheap, coming in under $35 you can't pass them up. Yes, some of them definitely look better online than in person. I was underwhelmed by the turfed sequin pillows, looked a little worn for my taste.


The velvet furniture looks really nice for the price. My favorite color they've released is the gorgeous teal color, it's so eye catching. Definitely look into their velvet furniture

I can't get over how amazing this gold mirror is, unfortunately for me I've hit my quota on round mirrors in my house but if you're on the market, definitely look into it!

The elephant basket, cheap and such a cute planter for a smaller plant. Worth the $25 pricetag.

The macrame baskets are such a good deal and they are huge. I think they would look so great filled with your blankets in your living room and it comes in two different colors.

Probably Not the Best

The "wood" furniture in real life looked so cheap in person. Yes, I understand that the pricetag is cheap but you can find cuter nightstands and furniture for the price. Definitely not worth it. Looks too plastic for me personally.



The candles reminded me of a knockoff version of the Capri Blue Volcano candles but I am not sure how they would work once lit. I love the Volcano candles because they fill up the entire room and the Target candles I've tried before aren't very strong. So just a warning! Not saying don't try them, I just think don't go balls to the wall on them.

The fig tree is the same price as a real one and definitely more expensive than the Ikea version that you can purchase for $50. Use your money wisely.

The faux cactus honestly makes me cringe. In my opinion it doesn't even look remotely real, it resembles a cartoon cactus. Definitely not worth the $25.

Final Thoughts: I think its so great that Target put this line out honesty if you are decorating on a budget and want the look of an Anthropologie decorated home without actually dropping like $100 for a pillow. Just like most lines there are definitely better pieces and the not-so-good pieces, but overall I think it's definitely worth looking into. Stick to the decorations, honestly a pillow is a pillow, people won't know if its from Marshalls, Target or Anthropologie.
