The Countryside vs. Coachella

Many of us in the fashion world look forward to Coachella to admire the street style – images of favorite festival girls dancing in the dessert heat with outfits that make you want to run around barefoot and take up playing the tambourine. With that said, it was not a big surprise to see a handful of designers had crochet on their mind when designing their SS15 collection. After all, crochet is a staple in the wardrobe of every festival girl. 

I decided just because I wasn’t able to attend Coachella should not mean that my favorite festival gear should be forgotten this season. As it turns out, most of the pieces in question could easily transition to country life when paired with Ralph Lauren Collection cowboy boots.   

 For wandering through the sequoia trees, I wore one of my favorite vacation finds from Ecuador. It’s the perfect dress to bare the California heat with its touch of crochet. I completed my look with a Hermès scarf and wrapped a vintage Bakelite necklace around my wrist to accompany me on my walk. My Ferragamo hobo happened to be the perfect accessory to collect random pieces of nature for the imaginary jewelry line I’ve been designing in my head for a few years.

I can already tell The Whisky hotel will be the perfect place for me to get back to my entrepreneurial roots and create…. ahhh fresh country air.
