Music festival season has arrived!  As many are already aware, the season begins in March and ends in August in the United States.  Several of the most popular upcoming events this year include: Ultra in Miami, Florida (March 28-30), Coachella 2014 in Indio, California (April 11-13 and again on April 18-20), and Electric Daisy Carnival in East Rutherford, NJ (May 24-24).  For a music festival expert like Vanessa Hudgens, picking out an outfit is probably close to second nature.

“I love Coachella. I go every year.  You get to take your shoes off, run around like a crazy person and have flowers in your hair. It’s just amazing… I love being barefoot, dressing up and listening to music that I love” the star dished to Chelsea Lately in an interview back in January.

However, the rest of us that are not “festival regulars” might need some wardrobe assistance!

Start the outfit off with some festive shorts.  I found that Dolly Girl Fashion has some amazing choices and very reasonable prices.  Bold shorts, like the ones featured above, go best with a simple color top like these pieces that I found from Delia’s and Fashion Union.  Still think the outfit needs a little something extra?  Throw on a Kimono like the ones I found from New Look.  They’re light and airy-perfect for all that walking and dancing around!  Finish the look with a Forever 21 flower crown and a fringe purse like this one from LookBook Store and have a great time! (:

     Valentine’s Day will be here soon!  Whether you’re dressing up to go out with the girls, a boyfriend, or just because, V-day is the perfect excuse to get pretty and treat yourself a little.  I picked out a few dresses to help inspire you.  My favorite way to wear a dress is to keep it classy, while showing a little bit of skin.  I personally feel its more attractive this way, because your eye focuses on something like an open back, or a little shoulder, more than if the whole outfit was completely revealing.  

     The red dress is from  Forever 21 and it is called, the “Clear Cut Textured Skater Dress”.  The pink number is from Fashion Union and it’s called, “Lara LOVE Cold Shoulder Pleated Dress”.  The name of this next dress is so cute-“The Black Swan Dress” and that one is from Goodnight Macaroon.  The last dress is from River Island and it’s called,  the “Grey Daisy Jacquard Bodycon Dress”.

UPCOMING TREND ALERT:

Your 90’s childhood play clothes are back!   Overalls have recently been seen on the Spring 2014 runway and on celebrities such as Vanessa Ann Hudgens, Selena Gomez, and Miley Cyrus.  Do you love it or hate it?  Personally, I have mixed feelings on overalls, but these models above definitely rock them.  I think I prefer the overall shorts over the long pants.  What do you think?

Who else is watching the 2014, 71st Annual Golden Globes, tonight on NBC?  These are just a few of my many fashion favorites.  Emma Watson looks stunning in this Dior gown tonight.  The recently wed actress, Kaley Cuoco is wearing a Rani Zakhem.  I like that she steered away from the basics and took a little risk.  Modern Family star, Sarah Hyland looks beautiful as usual in Georges Hobeika.  What do you think of the fashion at this year’s Golden Globes?

We recently said goodbye to another year, and to celebrate I wanted to share some of my favorite drugstore beauty products of 2013.  I currently wear 1.) Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream everyday because it’s so light and natural.  It also doesn’t break my acne prone skin out.  2.) Not Your Mother’s Beach Babe Texturizing Spray is an awesome sea salt spray.  When I want to be lazy with my hair this is my go-to!  You may have seen 3.) Queen Helen Mud Pack Masque in my skin care post.  The clay in this product works amazing to unclog pores.    When I do wear foundation, 4.) Almay Truly Lasting Color Makeup has been my favorite for years.  I really like how it doesn’t cake on my skin.    I highly recommend 5.) Maybelline’s Cover Stick if you are looking for something high-coverage under your eyes.  However, if you breakout frequently I would not use it to cover blemishes, as it tends to have an oily consistency.  Applying my 6.) eos lip balm in the flavor, “Strawberry Sorbet” is an obsession right now.  This product is not only all-natural and mostly organic (which I love), but it’s way too much fun to put on due to that adorable egg shape.  I like 7.) Maybelline Define-A-Brow Eyebrow Pencil because it comes with a small comb on the end of the brow liner and the color goes on very smooth making it look less harsh  than other brow liners.  8.) Revlon’s PhotoReady Powder really does it’s name justice.  I always think my skin looks a little more fresh when I wear this in pictures.  I can’t say enough about 9.) CeraVe Moisturizing lotion.  I go to sleep at night with this on and when I wakeup in the morning I can still feel it on my skin, (but without that sticky/wet feeling). It is such a must-buy if you have sensitive skin!  I use 10.) Aussie 3 Minute Miracle instead of conditioner once a week and it makes my hair so soft and removes a lot of those annoying knots.  I don’t think I go a day without wearing Revlon Just Bitten in “Smitten”.  It’s like a lip stain, but way less drying.

Let me know what your favorites of 2013 were (: !
