For those of you who don’t know, this past weekend marked the first weekend of Coachella – a fact you pretty much can’t avoid living in southern California. Though I would’ve killed to go even five years ago, I can safely say my music festival days are over. Mommy and festival groupie don’t exactly go hand in hand. (Legit I’m not in my 20’s anymore!) But that doesn’t mean I don’t dig festival style. My college days were super boho and I definitely still hang on to some of that vibe. So I love peeping all the looks out of Coachella Valley and even shopping some of the styles for those upcoming hot summer days. For this look I styled split leg pants with a crochet top for a coffee date with friends – and I scored several compliments on my outfit along the way.
As if you haven’t already heard enough about it, right now is “Festival Season”. For anyone who doesn’t know, festival season refers to the spring/summer barrage of (outdoor) music festivals running wild across the country. The most popular of these is Coachella, which takes place out in the California desert. The ideal So Cal location makes it a haven for celebrities and fashion bloggers, not to mention fashion brands. Festival style is a huge part of festival season. Some people go JUST for the fashion. And as you might guess, festival style is all about mastering the art of laid-back boho. For this edition of Tuesday Shoeday, I decided to style some festival inspired looks paired with Vince Camuto sandals.
I absolutely adore the Vince Camuto “Evel” sandal, especially in midnight blue. I think it’s a great casual chic daytime option. I love the idea of wearing this shoe with denim cut-offs and a midi-length printed kimono. A fringe crossbody bag would be the perfect handbag to complete this look. Don’t forget sunscreen and a straw hat to protect your skin for long days in the sun!! You can easily fake a tan with some golden bronzer if desired.
Dress it up at night with the Vince Camuto “Troy” sandal. This high-heeled gladiator is equal parts sexy and boho. Pair with a floral print flowing mini dress and feathery statement earrings for a boho glam party look. Don’t forget to top it off with some vampy red lipstick!
