Let The Festivities Begin!

It simply can’t be a coincidence that the first weekend of Coachella, aka the debut of festival season, and the unbelievable SHOPBOP spring sale is happening at the same time. I’m sure the god of music and god of shopping are finger touching above because they don’t want you to wear the same quotidien stuff to festivals, the only place where it’s acceptable to look like you came straight out of a 60’s newspaper clipping. To that end, you can get %25 off of your entire order at SHOPBOP with the code SPRING25 until April 10th 4AM EST, there are some brand exclusions but I can assure you that everything you see in this post will be %25 off. EVERYTHING. Click through to see some major festival style inspiration and shop all those looks.

Slide & Go

So the shoe that your boyfriend is going to hate to his very core but you will love more than anything in your closet is here: the flat mule. It combines the oriental aesthetic and comfort of a slipper and chicness of a pointed toe loafer, making your summer days a little better. Lucy from Fashion Me Now and Emerson Fry lookbooks are my ultimate inspirations for the trend which actually requires no inspiration at all; just slip them on with whatever and go! .

Pajama Streetstyle Helena Bordon

Pyjama Party Out

The only clothing category in my closet (or drawers) on which I’ve never ever spent more than $30 is sleepwear. I usually either go with old t-shirts, some cute cotton shorts I’ve bought from Oysho in the past and thermal sweaters that are supposed to be worn underneath sweaters, worn as sleepwear by me. It never made sense to me to spend money on something that’ll wrinkle under the sheets or get stained during breakfast (or, ehm, midnight snacks). Then suddenly, it made sense: wearing your pyjamas (top, bottom or as an ensemble) outside, making it a part of your daily street look. Now I can loosen the purse strings a little. Especially for this Eberjey set. .

Golden Steps

I am openly addicted to and obsessed with the color gold, especially when it comes to shoes (exhibit a, exhibit b). I can’t say that I own a lot of gold stuff, aside from my almost all gold jewelry, but I get smitten everytime I see a metallic jacket, pair of pants or lately, boots and booties. I’m guessing this goes back to my very first pair of shoes that I consciously picked when I was around 4, flat mary janes made up of gold sequins. I literally slept with those for a month before I got myself to actually wear them. History is about to repeat itself, I’m thinking. .

Frayed Denim 6a

I’m Fraying It

Denim is one pretty awesome phenomenon, it never ever gets out of style yet it appears in new shapes, colors, styles every single season and keeps finding new ways to set a trend by itself. Frayed denim has hit calendars of two consecutive years now (I’m inclined to blame Marques Almeida about this), marking it as THE only denim trend to be obeyed. The best part? It’s not something that’s only suitable for a particular style, age group, budget, height or weight. Time to have fun with basics. .
