I may or may not have decided to purchase my Coachella tickets the day AFTER it sold out completely.  What the hell, Coachella?  So needless today, I’m not going and instead will cry myself to sleep every night from April 15 to 17 AND drool over this Planet Blue lookbook that highlights the trek out to the desert.

The lookbook is equal parts whimsy and hippy with lots of chunky jewelry, cropped tops, and floral-printed everything.  Exactly what you need to spend 3 days at a music festival.  Peruse through the rest of Planet Blue’s lookbook here!

11 Goals for 2011

January 20, 2011

Filed Under : MY LIFE

  1. Edit my closet: I recently took inventory of my clothes and I have 10 t-shirts with holes in them, all of which I wear on a daily basis.  Those need to be gone immediately.  In their place, I want classic items that will take me from season to season, i.e. a well-tailored black blazer, an all-occasion LBD, tees that cost more than $5.99 a piece.
  2. Sign up for Community Supported Agriculture (CSA): Several of my friends are enrolled in the CSA program and I’ve been dying to join as well.
  3. Dedicate more time to my blog: I. Love. Blogging.  But I also have a full-time job.  Sometimes I get home from work and just VEG OUT.  I’m going to quit vegging and start putting more time into my (slightly neglected) child, m’blog!
  4. Drive less: I spend way too much time driving.  I need to live closer to work…
  5. Read one classic book a month: In college, I would take English literature classes for fun. I know, who does that?  I miss reading good classics though, so I’m going to start with this one.
  6. Try recipes out of my comfort zone: When cooking, I tend to stick to recipes that I won’t F up.  This year, I want to spread my wings in the kitchen.  Perhaps with a chocolate souffle?
  7. Take an online photography class: Photography is one of my favorite hobbies but I definitely don’t have the technical skills needed to take really great photos.  Thus, I must take a class.
  8. Make coffee with a french press: I never knew that making coffee could be such a sexy undertaking until I saw this video.  Now all I want to do is buy a french press.  And have my boyfriend make me coffee with it.
  9. Attend music festivals: I’m going to start with Coachella, then possibly move on to Bonnaroo?
  10. Pay it forward: I just want to pass around lots of love and smiles this year, especially because so much love and smiles have been passed on to me.
  11. Start a book: I’m not sure if I’ve ever mentioned this before, but I want to write a book.  It’s always been a goal of mine but this year, I’m going to start!  Trust me, it’s not going to be literary genius.  I’m leaning more towards the fantasy fiction persuasion, perhaps in the young adult section?  No??  I’ve got all sorts of ideas swirling around in m’little brain and I can’t wait to write them all down.

Ideal Spring Outfit #3: Floral Dress and Open-Toe Booties

  1. UO Reformed Jungle Dress, Urban Outfitters, $88 [Image via Urban Outfitters]
  2. Forever 21 Straw Woven Hat, Forever 21, $6.50 [Image via Forever 21]
  3. Joie I Will Survive Suede Lace Up Booties, Shopbop, $325 [Image via Shopbop]
  4. Madewell Mini Fringe Cross Body Bag, Shopbop, $98 [Image via Shopbop]

On the Urban Outfitters website, I found this dress under the “Going Places?  Music Festival” section.  And you know what, it is a perfect music festival dress!  So I’m dubbing this outfit “Coachella Edition” because I want to wear it when I go to Coachella.

This flowy frock is not only the perfect material for the desert conditions of Indio (where Coachella is located), but the subtle floral pattern is perfect for spring.  I love the detailing on the back as well.

My Ideal Spring Outfit list would not be complete without a pair of lace-up, open-toe booties.  They remind me of Le Blog de Betty and you know how much I love her (Obsessions du Jour)!!  Therefore, must have.

Lastly, what better way to protect your face from harmful UVA rays than with this adorable straw hat?  Ahhh, I can’t wait for Coachella!
