Coachella Day 2 - Sahara

Here's the outfit I wore on the second day of Coachella; I'm wearing a white shealth dress from and leather necklace from Chycas Boutique. It wasn't until I got home I realized wearing white probably wasn't the wisest idea, seeing as my dress was a shade darker and covered in a light layer of dirt.. Oops! Despite the discoloration of my dress, I was definitely grateful I wore something lightweight and light in color to deflect some of the heat from the sun!

Coachella Day 1 - 40 Day Dream

I had a wonderful time this weekend spent in Indio, California at the annual Coachella music festival! I'll be posting more about the festival later--pictures, favorite musicians, and a few things I learned that I'll definitely  keep in mind for future 3-day music festivals! But for now, here's a few pictures of the outfits I wore. I loved the brown tones, feathery and animal like print of the dress and accessories. I'm wearing a dress from Bebe, a hat I got a while back from Forever 21, and feather necklace from Chycas Boutique. I was definitely glad I wore a hat, as it saved me from the scorching heat of the sun!
I also really enjoyed seeing all the different styles and fashion of my fellow Coachella goers (I"ve never seen so many floral headbands and cat t-shirts in one place! haha). What's your favorite musical festival style? :-)

Chestnut & White

If you've followed my blog for long, you'll know that I'm a sucker for lace. Which is why I fell in love with this lace applique dress. I paired it up with a brown braided belt and some brown strappy heels from ALDO to complete the look.

Coral Red

I love wearing maxi dresses on a hot, summer-like day. I was particularly drawn to the coral red and blue combination of colors of this maxi dress, and it was perfect transition dress for strolling along the side-streets and shops, to relaxing on the beach. I hope you all had a lovely weekend. What did you do this weekend?

RAW Recipe: Pesto Zucchini "Pasta"

Lately I've gone a bit order-crazy on amazon when it comes to Raw food "cookbooks." I just LOVE raw food--the lively flavor of the food, the delicious sauces and textures, the aesthetically pleasing outcome of the dish, and not to mention the fact that it is EXTREMELY good for you! I  just can't get my hands on enough of these "cookbooks!" For those of you who have never heard of "going Raw" or don't really know what it means, eating Raw simply means that you do not cook your food and eat only fruits, vegetables, and nuts (as well as spices and other completely natural ingredients). Nothing is processed, and nothing is heated--so you don't have to worry about altering the chemical composition of your food or compromising nutrition for taste. You get the best of both worlds: Eating raw is both extremely appetizing and extremely good for you.
Anyways, tonight my sister decided to make one of the recipes, and it was so delicious I just had to make more! (And, I decided to share the delicious recipe with all of you, too!) Here's a quick and simple recipe that takes about 10 minutes of prep time before you have yourself a highly delectable Raw meal. Enjoy! And happy eating ;-)

If You're Single and Looking...

I've been posting a lot on my other blog lately, and have decided to
share some of the posts, particularly on dating, on this blog. The following post is from my inspirational blog, Hope you enjoy! :-)

If you’re single and have been looking for and desiring a relationship, then I want to propose a challenge to you: Instead of “searching” and looking for that special someone, work on instead becoming that special someone for someone else to find.

Un Bon Jour

It was a beautiful day yesterday that we spent in one of my favorite beach towns, eating ice cream and visiting cafes and museums. Here's a picture of the beautiful taupe dress I was wearing, from ChyCas boutique. I just love the pleating detail that stems from the neck all the way down the chest and waist.

All White

A few weeks ago I spent my saturday morning at my aunt's house taking portraits of my family for my grandpa's birthday. Here's a picture of the simple white outfit I wore. My favorite part of this white linen dress is the detail on the chest. I paired it up with some white strappy wedges to complete the simple yet classic look.
