The desert is definitely far different than Los Angeles – the mood changes and desert style is definitely different than city style. As you may remember, I recently traveled to a beautiful destination, the Wind Wolves Reserve. The preserve is an ecologically unique region where the Transverse Ranges, Coast Ranges, Sierra Nevada, western Mojave Desert and San Joaquin Valley converge. It offers 93,000 acres of beautiful landscape and natural wildlife and is actually west coast’s largest non-profit preserve. I highly recommend you visit if you’re ever passing through the Bakersfield area. Definitely try to get there in the beginning of spring when there are flowers/

Last post you where I featured a “not so dessert look” A LBD – this post is definitely more desert appropriate, featuring a beautiful top from FreePeople. This piece works well as a beach coverup as well.

Hope you’re all having a great week.

A girl never forgets her LBD

fashionbloggerI hope your week is off to a great start so far. As you may know, I’m always on the conquest for my next adventure, so I’m really excited to share with you the first of three posts from the dessert. You may remember my Ojai posts last year? I believe changing our surroundings, if even for the day, can make us feel completely renewed.

I saw the Wind Wolves Preserve on Instagram and with it being only 1 1/2 away from Los Angeles, I had to go there. It’s pretty much in the middle of nowhere and a mile off the freeway – which makes it even cooler. As we drove in to the reserve, we looked back about a 1/4 mile and saw no one. We looked both right and left and again, only saw rolling fields and fields. We got out of the car and it was so peaceful, only the wind, birds and insects we’re apparent.

I know this LBD is not the most dessert appropriate, but it’s why I love it – I love the contrast and unpredictability in fashion photography. I adore the sandals from Just Fab, too! Gladiator sandals are everything for summer. Stayed tuned for more dessert fashion to come.

Coachella Style: What To Wear

Consideration was provided by Sears.

For those of you who have weekend two Coachella tickets, I can only imagine how difficult it must have been to watch all the Instagram posts of weekend one, only wishing it was weekend two so you could be amidst of all the fun. If you’re heading out to weekend two, you’ll especially enjoy this Coachella Style inspired look!

Kristen Conahan, Coachella Style, festival style, fashion blogger, street style, top fashion blogger, free people, sears styleOne thing to keep in mind when you’re dressing for Coachella that you’ll want to keep it casual and dress it up with accessories. I ended up choosing these bermuda shorts because they are super comfortable and dressing up the jean with a sheer look.

Free People, festival style, sears fashion, kristen conhanIf you’re really feeling confident, there’s nothing wrong with wearing a bathing suit top or bralette, it’s totally festival chic approved! I threw my army jacket on as a little cover up and layered accessories for styling.

Ready for spring?!

When I lived in New York City my favorite time of year was when the seasons changed from winter to spring. There’s no way to describe it, but everyone becomes overwhelmed with a simultaneous smile and it’s really amazing to see.

Here in LA, the change in temperature is not as drastic. We often have summer days in winter, but we’re still captivated by all the beauty spring has to offer. These LA gardens make me happy and when I’m here I feel an overwhelming peace.

It’s time for spring fashion. I love wearing beautiful flowy dresses and gorgeous pastels. The dress I’m wearing is a new purchase from Zara kids – can you believe it? I’m 5’4 so if you’re my size, you’ll probably fit too!

SWP Picks: Spring Bags

With the time changing last week and the weather feeling like summer in Los Angeles, there’s been a lot of talk about spring fashion. I think it’s a unanimous feeling to love spring, I mean, how can you not? The flowers are in blow and we’re seeing color that we haven’t for months. The sun is shining and inevitably, there are smiles on peoples faces. All of this, changes the way we dress – the colors, the temperature and our mood. We gravitate towards color and softer pastels. I’ll be talking a lot about spring trends but today’s post, I’m talking about spring bags.

It’s something I can definitely improve on – having the perfect spring bag for every occasion or every outfit. I’m gravitating towards softer hues (like this backpack for instance) for my spring bags, which will go with mostly everything because they’re neutrals. Also, I’m letting you all in a little secret! Nordstrom Rack has the most amazing designer bags for a really realistic price. Don’t get me wrong, I love investing in a good bag time and again like this Alexander Wang, but it’s still TOTALLY possible to buy amazing designer quality bags for less then $100 or $200 at Nordys. The bags are all linked on the image, so click-click directly to purchase. Which is your favorite? XX

Leather + Lace

One of my favorite new trends in fashion is lace…

FullSizeRender

Lace: it’s feminine and sweet and it’s an easy way to incorporate something delicate into your look. Lace popping up all over the internet in street style and it’s being used in completely unexpected ways. Like for example, a lace skirt with runners? Totally different and absolutely works. A lace skirt with a casual sweatshirt? Maybe my favorite so far. Check out some of my favorites on my Lace Inspiration Pinterest Board.

Sweaters + Rips

In every girl’s closet there should be a handful of cozy knit sweaters in neutrals and a variety of ripped jeans..

Kristen Conahan, Fashion Blogger, Street style, white jeans with rips, ripped denim, top shop skinny jeans, knitsI hope you’re all having an amazing weekend. I’ve been in New York for the past couple days but lately back in Los Angeles I’ve been stocking up on my knits. I swear, I’d wear  cozy sweater and ripped jeans everyday if I could – it’s the simplest, chicest look and gives off a laid back “I’m not trying” vibe.
