Here’s another festival inspired look for all of you Coachella 2015 goers this weekend & next (P.S. beyond jealous of you if you’re attending). Although I’ve never been to Coachella, I have experienced my fair share of festivals and know a thing or two about what to wear & what not to. First things first — COMFORT. You want to be comfortable when you’re walking all over the place. Secondly — it gets HOT (this may seem obvious), but I strongly advise layering. Throw a tank underneath a lightweight knit sweater (yes, you’ll need a sweater for the cold dessert nights). Lastly — you need a bag that will hold everything you need to get you through the day, but something structured/sturdy that will hold up through the crowd.
This is my two cents on festival going for Coachella 2015. What would be your top 3 recommendations?
P.S. In this recent post I was dishing on how amazing Harper Hallam (this jewelry line I recently discovered) is and I wanted to share a 4th piece with you. ^^ this turquoise necklace is sure to make any festival look stand out! Be sure to follow along on instagram if you aren’t already. I just may be giving away a good chunk of change in the form of gift certificate to their site 🙂
After my most recent giveaway for the Chloe bucket bag + Wildfox mirrored sunglasses, I realized it’s time that I share my love for both of these trends. Starting with the bucket bags — structure, fashionable, and accessibility. What more could you ask for than a purse that holds everything you need (and then some), but still retains its shape with an easy synch? If you’re anything like me, you’re constantly on the go and convenience is key. Definitely a spring essential for me.
Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that mirrored sunglasses are all the hype. I may have gone a bit overboard on these over the last couple years, but obviously the trend is here to stay. When you’re looking for a pair of mirrored sunglasses, Wildfox Couture & Ray-Ban has the best selection in my opinion! I have these in silver and just ordered these. If you’re planning to hit any music festivals this spring/summer, a bucket bag & mirrored sunglasses are the perf accessories.
Thank you so much to those of you that entered our giveaway for the Chloe bucket bag and Wildfox mirrored sunglasses!! If you didn’t win this time, I have a few amazing giveaways coming up on my Instagram for April 🙂 One starting tomorrow for a YSL clutch (PROMISE YOU DONT WANT TO MISS) & another amazing Instagram giveaway with Harper Hallam coming soon (see how I styled some of their pieces in this recent post)! Plenty of opportunity to be a winner, so if you aren’t already >> follow me on Instagram @sosageblog & stay tuned!
Whether you’ve hopped on board or not, festival style has become it’s own trend and season in the last 4-5 years. The perfect harmony between Spring & Summer and it just so happens to be one of my favorite times of the year in terms of fashion! A time when the conservative let their guard down and the free-spirited really spread their wings. Which one am I? Well, I think y’all know the answer to that 😉 Fashion to me, is all about taking risks and putting yourself outside of your comfort zone. That’s the beauty of it. You don’t always have to ‘dress your part’. If you aren’t typically a risk taker in the wardrobe area, this is the perfect excuse to do so! I can promise you one thing, nobody’s judging at a music festival. As big of a fashion risk you think you’re taking, there will be thousands of others that are wearing things you couldn’t even imagine.
For festival style, typically I’m comfortable in a band tee or crop top & cutoff denim..but I wanted to try something different this time. Today I’ve teamed up with this amazing jewelry line called Harper Hallam (my newest obsession), to bring you this festival style look. Incorporating a small part of your “comfort zone” into your not so typical look is totally okay. For me, that’s layered necklaces and stacked bracelets. I’ve been wearing the you-know-what out of this Harper Hallam set ever since I got it. It adds the perfect amount of vintage, boho edge to any outfit. I was pulling pieces for this shoot and I could literally pair the two necklaces and bracelets with a thousand different looks.
Something I love most about Harper Hallam is that they are based out of Dallas and have perfect synergy with my philosophy of style and the purpose of this blog; Luxury staples paired with accessible finds. There’s something about their pieces that exude confidence, edgy, feminine style that’s everlasting. I’m all about it.
P.S. Stay tuned for the rest of my festival style inspired looks and be sure to follow me on instagram @sosageblog (if you aren’t already) because I just may be giving something away from Harper Hallam 🙂

Hi readers !! Quick post today as I have a crazy amount of work going on this week. No rest for the weary, right? Colorful tie-dye maxi dresses are all the hype right now and I snagged this one from Cotton Island (a local boutique in Plano/Dallas). If you’re in the local area and have never visited, you must! If not, luckily you can still purchase from their Instagram 🙂
The girls are the sweetest there and I’ve been going since I was in HS. They have a super fun boho/festival selection right now and I couldn’t leave on my vacay without this dress. It’s so soft & the perfect length (thanks to the adjustable straps).
Missing the Dominican Republic so bad right now. Ahh take me back!!
If you haven’t already gone on spring break vacay, it’s quickly approaching. I have to tell y’all about my recent visit to the Dominican Republic — I’m in love with this place! We were there for a destination wedding (read more that in this post) and stayed at the Casa de Campo resort (more than spectacular/highly recommend it). The landscapes are incredible & the homes located on the resort are absolutely breathtaking! I was obsessed with this particular home, so we shot this look on our way to the beach one day. The blue door & fountains are everything to me.
…and so is this Seafolly Romper. When it comes to beach days, I like to keep my look simple. Something I can slip on-and-off fairly easy. First, this printed romper is the perfect pair to a basic (or solid colored) bikini. It’s also comfortable and easy to slip on or off. I love the side slit details on the bottom portion! I’m wearing an XS here, so I would say it runs pretty true to size.
All this island talk makes me think it’s time to take another beach vacay 🙂 Any recommendations or favorite beaches you’ve been to? Would love to hear from y’all and travel somewhere new!
