These are the last of my Coachella photos from last weekend. Also, this was my favorite bathing suit of the weekend as well. Pineapple in sunglasses! What could be better than that? Anyway, I'm back in LA but all I can think about is being in the desert, so I've been laying out by the nearest pool all week. I'm still not ready to go back in work mode. But luckily for me my next vacation is only a week away. Destination: Taipe, Taiwan! Totally excited. It's been quite some time since I last visited family there. I have nieces and nephews that I will meet for the first time. Can't wait!

lacoste desert pool party

One party I look forward to every year is the Lacoste pool party during Coachella weekend. From the coconut juice to the tequila popsicles, this year they even had the best photo booth setup inside a bounce house! It was such a great time to hang out with my favorite Dutch blogger and dear friend, Renee, again after not seeing her for a few years. I also met up with mega babe Jenn, who is the sweetest. My fellow short hair gals, you need to check out her tousled curls tutorial. It's LIFE CHANGING! For the occasion, I wore a sweet floral print dress paired with some staple black accessories. In the summer you can never go wrong with a good floral print, especially when it comes in the form of a slip dress. It's definitely going to get me though the next few scorching hot months to come.

swim good

Totally loving this one piece bathing suit from This is a love song. Although it is paying homage to the Frank Ocean song, I've got to admit- I haven't even heard the song before and when it comes right down to it, I'm a pretty shitty swimmer. Which brings me to the point that whenever there is a pool party, floaties are absolutely necessary. I've managed to learn how to be in the water without actually being in the water. Does that make me prissy? oh well!
