I just got back to NYC, and though there’s loads of exciting things happening this week, I’ve still got California in the back of my mind. It was 2 weeks of work, LA style, and one spent like it were the old days with my mom and pops…two of the coolest people I know. Driving me to and from fittings, spending a whole day out if I were on location for a shooting. Anything, they were there. And I honestly cannot wait to see them again! And of course, there’s Dylana. My sister, partner-in-crime, and best friend. We’re always thinking the same thing, it’s almost scary! Anyways, here she snapped me just before our very last day at Coachella. Before sun-down, before the sand storms, and before we both came home and looked in the mirror, only to find a dark brown sand glued to our faces! I wanted to be extra comfortable for the last day during our desert adventure. I slipped into one super soft, oversize quilted dress, and our Modern Vice yellow SUMMER JETT. Getting dressed was easy peasy. Dylana and I both had our suitcases wide open, clothes everywhere…so it’s no surprise she ended up in my Lovers & Friends lace tank and scarf. Sharing is the best. Anyways, this year proves once again that there’s nothing better than the desert sun after a looong winter. Even the cactus, and almost too perfectly paved roads were picture-perfect. Though nights get cold, there’s always the sun in the morning to warm your bones.

    The sun in Spain is unique, but nothing like the sun of California… It’s like honey-ed. Really wish to go there some day!

    Love the pictures and your outfits! Is the print of your dress the same as the scarf’s???
