Coachillin’

Well after a whirlwind of  planning (outfits, parties and what shows to see) for Coachella, Nancy and I have mixed feelings about it being over. Despite our lost voices, sore throats and very dusty and dirty clothes…we had one of the best weekends ever! We saw some great shows and basked in the hot California sun (which the New Yorkers really needed after the polar vortex!) and saw some good friends. Our memories will live forever in our minds, but to share…see some of our favorite pics from the weekend. xo -P-

Getting Handsy

There’s something about a hand bracelet. The look always appealed to me and now that they’re a full-on trend, with even more classic jewelry designers jumping on board, I can’t believe I still don’t own one. Here are a few I’m loving that may just wind up in my jewelry box someday soon. xN

The Modern Girls Guide

A friend of mine recently turned me on to this great new site called The Politesse. It’s the modern girls guide too all those etiquette questions and those socially perplexing situations that we all wonder about …but maybe are too scared to ask. With categories like “Language vs Slanguage”  and “What You Didn’t Learn in Home Ec” and “This Happened” this site is no Emily Post. It’s a hilarious take on very practical knowledge, plus the images the use are just priceless. Some of my favorite post have to be “The Art of Salary Negotiations” that were accompanied by visuals of Lil Wayne making it rain and a very seasonally appropriate post “Coachella Do’s and Don’ts” and post about the fine line between following up after a job interview and stalking. Can’t find the answer to your etiquette question, submit your queries to the ladies of The Politesse for a quick answer to your problems.

Coachella | Nancy & Pauline Pack It Up for the Desert

nancy-chella1
It’s just about time for Coachella Weekend 2. And unlike this past weekend where Pauline and I watched it all happen on Instagram, this weekend we’ll finally be there. Denim, a touch of fringe, swimsuits, sunnies, a little tie-dye, maybe even a little Kate Bosworth inspo and too many shoes (per usual)…here’s what I’m packing away for our festival fun. The desert awaits! xo N

Nancy and I can’t wait to hit the desert and see some sunshine and some music! I think having been bombarded with “How to Dress for Festival Season” emails the  past weeks I am having festival dressing backlash. I am opting for easy and sporty pieces in monochromatic black and white to really set off my rose hair. While I may feel a little covered up in my mens Nike Tee ( that i have made into a boxy crop top)…I think that Dri-Fit technology will really be keeping me cool. More on the flipside xo -P-
