[Festival Inspired | Mixing Elements]
LA has been in her Sunny and 70s mood these days and I'm not complaining. I enjoyed a full day of sunshine enjoying an iced coffee at my go-to coffee spot, Blue Bottle in the Arts District. Oh, the spoils of being in LA. I was also excited because it meant I got to break in my newest romper to my ever-growing onesie collection by Sayer's Piece. It has Coachella written all over it, which is definitely getting me in the festival spirit. The line-up this year, though. I've been getting heavily into EDM these days so to see Jack Ü, Ellie Goulding, M83, Aluna George, Disclosure, Zedd, Zhu, Calvin Harris, Major Lazer, and Flume on the list was just killer for me. Oh, and Epik High? Bananas. I just want to dance all day! There are some discussions of a Korea trip happening as well so, it may have to be a toss up between the two. What do you guys vote?
In any case, back to the outfit. I just wanted to talk about this color combination for a minute. I would normally opt for a denim or a white for this look, but I saw this gorgeous necklace from Gazel SF and had to dust off my thickest winter coat from Stylenanda to complete the earthy tones found in the beading. LA does tend to get quite chilly at night so this thick winter coat was the perfect complement to a more spring-time appropriate outfit. No Ruby Element outfit would be complete without some boots so I went with the earthy, bohemian theme and chucked on my Fiorentini + Baker boots (now 50% off!). My loves. Honestly, these babies are one of my most prized possessions in my closet because it was probably one of my most expensive purchases that I made on my own when I started out in this crazy working world. Bigger purchases like this are so worth it when you know you've worked so hard for it. Italian leather. Can't beat it. So buttery soft. Mmm.
Anyways, I still owe y'all a vlog from my most recent road trip to Big Sur so stay tuned for that! In the meantime, follow me on Snapchat (@therubyelement) today! I am off to shoot in yet another magical location. I hope y'all have also entered my latest giveaway that I collaborated with some of my favorite fashion bloggers and MITH Magazine. Check out the photo of the magazines on my Instagram feed to see how you can win $250 to Anthropologie and a copy of MITH Magazine! I hope y'all are killing it this week! Remember, in the great words of Oprah, "There is no such thing as failure. Failure is just life trying to move us in another direction." You got this! Thanks, as always, for stopping by! I appreciate you!
Get the Look!
