It’s crazy to think that Coachella happened in just three days. Natalie and I felt like we were in the desert forever and ever. And ever. The desert . . . a place where no one remembers your name. Hehe. We basically forgot our own names from all the hecticness we involved ourselves in during the past few days. We arrived a good two days before Coachella even began, so our time in the desert felt extra extended. The craziest part though, was how easily I forgot about New York City while I was there. We were working a ton, catching as much music as we could in between shooting, and for some reason the days felt like they were stretched out long and far, beginning early and ending late. They ran into each other in endless waves of desert dust and hot, dry heat. Despite the fact that the heat made me sleepy, it started to really feel like I was very well suited for desert living. Despite running around like a chicken with her head cut off, I felt naturally at ease amongst my environment.

The Coachella Valley is a world in itself. Isolated and desolate. It feels sparse in most places and one must drive far to get from one destination to the next. In fact, with the distances stacking up on the car meter, you think you were driving into nothingness . . . on and on and on you go. In the end, it is exactly that openness that gave me the most refreshing feeling. The horizons in fact were limitless. And so was my mind. It’s no wonder the music sounds and feels better in the desert. The unlimited space all around allows for it to travel a million times around. I like to think of it that way. The music rushing through every palm tree, in-between the dust, through the soft ripples of the oversized pools of every Spanish-style backyard in basically the middle of nowhere. This town that feels mostly ghostly on any normal given day, is full of energy and mystery during Coachella. The desert dust dances. And I was inspired to follow suit. This was the first year where I heavily focused on denim for my festival looks, thanks to 7 For All Mankind and their wonderful new collection. Retro-inspired cuts that fit right in with the city’s vintage architectural leanings. And with denim being the uniform of the early west, it made sense that it found its official place in the middle of the desert during a modern day music festival. It hides us from dust, looks even better with dirt stains and keeps us from getting too sunburnt. But really we don’t care about those things. Festival season is a free for all. Restraints? No such thing. And this denim really made me feel FREE this year at Coachella. In a way, this denim paid tribute to that All American feeling. It’s something I’ve been wanting to express more and more lately. Denim is not just a type of fabric. It’s a feeling in the soul. Theres’ so much music in that feeling. It’s free roaming. It’s almost in need a stage all of its own. For now, the palm tree lined streets of Palm Springs that line themselves all the way to Indio . . . they will do for now.

Making Flares Feel Fresh Again

When you pack an entire carry on for 24 hours in Austin, Texas, and all you want to wear is a pair of flared jeans. And every single shade of indigo known to existence. That southern influence man. Can’t beat it. Ever since spring has arrived, I’ve been drawing myself back towards flares again. I think it’s that airy feeling they give me. They were made for this season in a way. Rather than going the natural retro kick back way I usually would have went with these flares, I was inspired by the floral detailing on this St. Roche top. It gave me inklings of Japan and cherry blossoms, and the first thing I reached for was this wide wrap belt to add some cinching. Very kimono-esque I would say. How would you redefine the styling of flare jeans for spring? Tell me!

Sezane Denim

Nothing more easy than a good pair of blue jeans and white menswear-style blouse. I like my blouse crispy white, a bit oversized and able to be tied or wrapped.

My mind and bones have been warmed as a result of a day free to frolic in Los Angeles. As soon as I step foot back home, I start to feel a little bit more relieved from the stresses of delayed subways, long commutes from north Brooklyn to South Brooklyn, overcrowded sidewalks, overpriced vegan food and french fries, overly sceney Soho restaurants that make me feel like I have to do my hair before entering, endless apartment hunting that is endless because nothing is exactly how I want it to be, winters that slap you in the face and heavy Whole Food bags that break on the walk home. Then there is the fact that there is never enough time to read a book at the end of the day, let alone on my long and sleepy commute. Time to get everything on my to-do list done in one weekend? Impossible. Man, if life could really be as simple as blue jeans and a white button down shirt. Los Angeles, thank you for being that simple combination for me. A little denim escape that encapsulates my mind for the few days at a time that I am home. 

Don’t get me wrong, all the annoying little things about New York City will never overshadow all the beautiful, amazing, substantial parts of it. But right now, I’m feeling very much like a L.A. Woman in her blue jeans and white blouse.

This weekend is going to officially feel like spring. We get a warmer Saturday here, and I get to relax with my boo doing fun things to celebrate one year of our relationship. And then I’m off to Los Angeles for a few days for a little family and friend time, but also for an exciting launch that my sister and I will be a part of. I’m so, so ready for that west coast sunshine . . .  I’ve been craving it so much these past few days. 

Make sure to watch out for the relaunch of Sezane denim on March 29. It’s so fab! And one can never get enough denim, right?
