La Piscina | Pool OOTD

La Piscina

 
 
Sometimes a getaway is exactly what you need when life seems to have been whizzing past you at warp speed. It’s easy to lose the beauty in moments when they all start to melt together.

A pool day is definitely in order; one with rays of sunshine and beads of sweat that are not only symbols of a physical detox, but a mental one as well. I’m all about this monochromatic swimsuit paired with a tropical, patterned kaftan on top. A vintage inspired pair of shades to protect my eyes, sunscreen to protect my face and water to keep me hydrated through the day are my other essentials.

What do you do to take a breather?

Regular posting back SO soon.

Coachella is a festival I’ve had on my radar for a while. While I’ve been to Lollapalooza and Bonnaroo, I know the feel of a west coast festival would be much different and it’s definitely something I plan to experience (hopefully sooner rather than later).

Coachella is a celebration of Art, Music and sunny California.  It’s also widely recognized for the style that is exhibited by it’s goers; I might even venture to say that it sets the standard for what people will be wearing for the duration of festival season.

My fashion picks are a mashup of hard and soft pieces that I could definitely see myself rocking during the weekend long celebration, as well as for the rest of the summer. My favorites are probably the jewelry from Catbird, the NSF Patchwork Jeans I spotted on Shopbop, and the Steve Madden leopard Birkenstock style sandal.

To make the envisioning process a little easier, here’s a Spotify playlist of most of the artists playing at Coachella! Hopefully you’ll discover some new music along with loving some already favorites.

(Nows the part where you grab some takeout, throw on a sunhat, roll into your hammack and turn up the tuneage)

Nashville Flea Market

IMG_5264 IMG_5258 IMG_5255 IMG_5254 IMG_5243 IMG_5293 IMG_5267 IMG_5269 IMG_5279 IMG_5283 IMG_5259 IMG_5270

The sun was shining and the fairgrounds were swarming with Nashville’s thriftiest.  The day was brisk; not quite warm enough to bare skin but enough so to venture out and enjoy the onset of springtime. In the air was a mix of aromas all stemming from a food trailer adorned with a large colorful sign that read “Hot dogs! Nachos! Funnel Cakes!” (my own personal utopia). Flea Market day.

The Nashville Flea Market happens every 3rd weekend of each month all year round. Hundreds of vendors load up and bring their trailers full of old furniture, minerals, animal hides, vintage clothes, handmade goods, knick knacks and whatever else you can imagine to set up camp on the Nashville fairgrounds for three whole days. The sprawl of merchandise brings a loyal crowd and you never really know what you’ll come across.

Today I was on the hunt for: a new lamp to illuminate the dark corner in my bedroom, some amethyst to put here and there, and maybe some frames for a couple of prints I picked up in England. Though I didn’t find the lamp or the frames , despite the plethura of candidates, I did score a gorgeous piece of amethyst and a really great blue agate stone for my end table.

If you’re in town on the 3rd weekend of the month, I highly recommend blocking out some time to check out the flea market. Sunday is a great time to go because it’s the last day and the merchants are more likely to haggle on the price. I’d say your best bet is to sleep in, grab some brunch and then head over to the grounds. Parking is five dollars (or free if you don’t mind a little bit of a walk), and most of the vendors only accept cash. If you forget to pull money out don’t fret because there is an ATM on site and cards are accepted at some of the stalls, as well.

I’ll be there next month! Hopefully you will too.
