Desert Vibes

Dress: Forever 21 | Heels: Target | Bag: Michael Kors (Similar) | Watch: Michael Kors

 Coachella season is in its prime, so it's only fitting that I do some breezy, bohemian and desert-chic shoots. This actually wasn't in the desert, but rather in the Los Angeles County Arboretum in Pasadena. Close enough, right? My boyfriend and I took a lovely two day trip there over the weekend and I'm very glad to have made this stop in particular. I absolutely adore flowers and plants and they had some lovely exhibits all throughout the park.

I bought this dress from Forever 21 in Old Pasadena literally the day before this shoot, so what you're seeing here is actually the first time I wore it out. It's the perfect floral, mini dress and is definitely something I personally would rock to Coachella. It's comfortably breezy, but also nicely fitted. The airy fabric is also lightweight and perfect for the spring time. Every time I associate florals with springtime, I always think of Miranda Priestly's line in "The Devil Wears Prada" (aka, my favorite movie of all time) and feel a bit discouraged. You know,"Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking." As much as I try to stay true to this ideology, I can't deny the fact that I will always love floral print and will always find an excuse to wear it. Floral dresses are some of my favorite garments to wear, and they're especially perfect during the spring and the summer. So yeah, sorry Miranda.

Whenever I wear prints, I make sure to balance it out by keeping everything else neutral and simple. A black satchel, some gold/ rose gold jewelry and nude heeled sandals acted as the perfect complements to the floral print while adding their own casual chic touches.
