So today I’m giving you guys a tour of my humble abode! Just kidding. I wish! I drive down Ocean Ave almost every, if not every day and this one house in particular has always stuck out to me… for whatever reason I am so drawn to it. I figured this would be a pretty fun place to snap a few quick pics. And by quick I do mean quick as we soon realized there were surveillance cameras following our every move… haha!

I’m channeling the vibes from one of my all time favorite movies with this outfit; The Craft. If you were a part of my generation when this movie came out it was probably one of your favorites, or it should be. Raise your hand if you went out to a Funk & Standard (or some kind of novelty shop) and spent your entire allowance on witchcraft books. I may or may not have put a few spells on the mean girls in my middle school. Anyway… I loved the wardrobe in that movie. So. Much. Black. My kinda girls!
I wore this out for a night on the town with my bestie. It’s the kind of outfit that just grabs attention when you walk into a room. For so long I felt like I could only wear these boots for certain occasions, like… almost never, but I have recently stepped out of my comfort zone and decided to wear these more often. I maybe even buy clothes to go with the boots now so I can wear them more, hah. But I mean seriously, look at them, can ya blame me?
So… obviously I’m not at Coachella, but I’m not sad about it. In all honesty, I’m kind of a super music snob, and I hate when things that are supposed to about one thing become about something else, ya know? Don’t get me wrong, I’m all about fashion… obviously! But music is my ish, so I’d like to actually go and focus on that… not trying to get on a street style blog looking like I’m tripping on shrooms in the middle of the desert… haha. HOWEVER! That does not mean we cannot channel our inner festival goddess for some boho vibes here on the east coast.

I’m obsessed with this dress! It’s light and comfortable and perfect for the summer vibes I am already feeling with this spring weather. Unfortunately, it’s one of those “Marilyn Monroe” moment dresses, and like hardcore. Don’t wear it on a breezy day… lesson learned. (Definitely flashed the receptionist at an office I was walking into the other day…. aaaawkwaaard) I tried to find it on the Forever21 website to link to for you guys, but I sifted through about 800 dresses with no luck so I linked to something similar. Stop in your local shop, because it’s a recent buy, I’m sure they’ll have this exact one on hand.
I shot these around one of my favorite local staples, Ocean View Bakery. This place has seriously been around for-ev-er. Mama Leone loves to send everyone home with a little something extra every time you visit. Whenever I go in there she tries to send me a to-go container of meatballs for my husband because she knows it’s one of his favorite foods, LOL. They’re seriously the sweetest.
Anyway! If you’re one of the lucky ones heading out to Coachella again next weekend definitely have allllll the fun with your wardrobe! It’s the perfect time to play with trends that are maybe a little outside of your comfort zone and trying out something new. Like myself and this headband… not one of my usual go-to’s but I’m kinda feelin it! Might have to play with this a little more. Your thoughts? I’m big into the boho style, it’s very prominent where I’m from because we’re located on the beach. There’s definitely a more relaxed sense of style down here and I love it!
