This will be the first year that I am attending Coachella in Palm Springs and I couldn’t be more excited. What’s even more thrilling is planning what I will be wearing. From fringed tops to flowers in my hair, here is my festival inspiration. In the next few weeks I will be styling some festival inspired pieces so stay tuned. Happy Friday!3
Another snow day in DC as we all await the arrival of spring. This weekend was great, filled with brunch with old friends (Rosa + Katalina), and catching up on Oscar movies like American Hustle and Philomena (find my best dressed recap on instragram here)! Being that the weather is still cold and snowy in the DC area, I am forced to bundle up and stay warm. Here is a simple outfit I wore to brunch on Saturday, including my new favorite distressed Rag & Bone jeans. Hope you enjoy this snow day, I will be working from my couch today and taking short cooking breaks.5
One of my favorite things about visiting LA is renting a house while we stay there. Rather than staying in a hotel for a week and feeling like a guest, renting a house is the perfect opportunity to really picture what life would be like living in another city. You wake up, make breakfast, do work, and go about your day doing normal things like walking to the grocery store or doing laundry. I was especially fond of this house because the decor was truly aligned with my sense of style. A mix of modern and antique, this rustic chic abode was such a treat to stay at. Be sure to check out styleMBA’s take on how to “build this look” with my home decor picks below.3

A bold and rugged print, plaid will add just the right amount of pattern to any outfit. I bought this plaid Zara coat during their holiday sales and have been wearing it since. I paired my plaid jacket with a solid colored bottom, like these faux leather leggings.2

In the next couple of weeks I have a few trips planned and I thought it would be fun to share some of my favorite travel finds. From DC, to NY, to LA it never hurts to be prepared, especially when you’re preparing for different climates. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.
Who doesn’t love a pair of “super stretch” denim jeans? I’ve partnered with one of my favorite brands, American Eagle Outfitters to be a part of their “Bloggers Do it Better Challenge”. With a hi-rise fit and lived-in distressed look, these jeans are now one of the most comfortable pairs of denim I own. Whether you dress them up with a wedged sandal (like I did below) or wear them with sneakers, there is no going back (purchase here).

Camel coats are a must-have transitional piece this winter. Paired with a faux fur stole, you can easily add an element of glam to your outfit. This year, I plan to invest more in basic pieces like this coat, that can be rotated and transitioned through different seasons. Marshalls has some fabulous basic pieces, whether you’re looking for a solid colored winter coat or a classic black blazer. Hope your Monday is off to a great start and be sure to check out my favorite camel colored coat finds below.3
