Trend Alert: Festival Dressing for Everyday

I have one word for you - Coachella.  Have you heard of it?  It is only the biggest music festival around located in the California Desert town of Indio. It started as a 2-day festival at the end of April, and is the now the coolest music event of the year, spanning 2 weekends... 6 days of continuous music on several different stages.  Music aside, Coachella is all about the fashion.

This is the place where you can let your hair down (or braid it), live out your hippie dreams or be as quirky and fashion forward as you would like... anything goes.  For those of us not able to fly out to Callie on a whim and bum around listening to music all weekend, it is a great place for inspiration for spring outfit ideas.

I wanted to share some of my favorite looks...

Model Alek Wek looks so great.  A preppier take on the festival look, but it works.  Stripes, ruffles and riding boots would look just as fab in the 'burbs.

The classic bohemian look... you can never go wrong with a great maxi dress and denim jacket.

Kate Bosworth has perfected the music festival look.  Wouldn't a mini dress, wellies and an anorak be so chic for a rainy day?! 

A vintage tee always looks cool... pair it with a cute pair of shorts or skinnies

Maybe we can't all wear shorts this short or cropped shirts, but I love simplicity of the outfit.  Denim, chambray, a white tank, turquoise... you can't go wrong.

I love this look!  Who would know if you were wearing a swimsuit or a bodysuit?  The perfect solution for a hot day.  A cute maillot would look great with a full skirt or fun shorts.  Oh, the possibilities...

Models at Coachella... they can wear anything and still look good.  I do love the bohemian blouse with cutoffs.  A classic carefree look for summer.
