Steal her Festival Style: Lauren Conrad Coachella

Coachella finished up about a week ago and now all anyone can talk about is Splendour in the Grass. Like Coachella, Splendour is a three day festival full of music, drinking, food and art. So what’s the most important thing, besides from purchasing a ticket? That’s right, what to wear. I have chosen to take three looks from Lauren Conrad’s Coachella style that you could emulate and all for a very reasonable price!

Day 1.

This is a very simple look, very comfortable, and probably the best ensumble for your biggest day roughing the crowds.

1. Z Fit Super Skinny Coated Jean Black, $79.95, Jeans West 2. Ribbed Cosy Sweater, $69.95, Sportsgirl 3. Holly Work Bag, $59.95, Sportsgirl 4. Converse Chuck Taylor All Star Hi, $89.99, Converse 5. Lucky Glasses, $34.95, Sportsgirl.

Day 2.

This look is more suited to one of those warmer festival days, it’s also more girly and fun.

1.Tropical Floral Zip Shorts, £35.00, Topshop 2. ASOS T-shirt with Drop Back, $24.86, asos.com 3. Hunt Cross-over Fluro Sandals, £25.00, Topshop 4. ASOS Straw Boater With Removable Garland Headband, $24.86, Asos.com 5. Arrow Sunglasses, $34.95, Sportsgirl.

Day 3.

This is one of my favourite looks. I think it is fun and edgy but very versatile.

1. Basket Weave Floppy Cardi, $79.95, Sportsgirl 2. Mavi Serena Jean in Caremel Leopard, $139.99, Mavi Jeans 3. Silk Curve Hem T, $79.95, Sportsgirl 4. Hunter Original Gloss Wellington Boots, $137.53, asos.com.

A new addiction.

It was today while I was looking for inspiration about what to write when I suddenly realised that I have a new addiction. While scrolling through page after page of online shopping sites, it dawned on me. I have addiction to sunglasses.

So instead of making another purchase [I have already made one this week] I decided I would share with you what my favourite sunnies are. Now don’t fret, it’s not like I own 50 pairs of designer glasses [only two I also love my cheap rip offs] these are just a select few I have been wishing I could buy.

These are number one on my wish list [found them today] from Victoria Beckham’s Spring/Summer 2011 collection.

Victoria Beckham – VB0067 Metal/Acetate Large ‘V’ Taupe

Second on my wish list are these sunnies from Tom Ford. I don’t think they would suit me but they are pretty just to look at, don’t you think?

Tom Ford – Nakita 

Now these use to be on my wish list until recently… because I bought them…

Gucci – GG 3155 Wayfarer

My third and final pair of sunnies [for now] on my wish list are these, also from Victoria Beckham, fall collection 2010.

Victoria Beckham – Vb0044 Metal Acetate

So, if I have now converted you to the amazingness of sunglasses, I will leave you with this quote.

Always have sunglasses with you. They`re great for when you can`t be bothered to put make-up on. – Alison Goldfrapp

Hot Chocolate

My newest obsession is chocolate, but not the food kind (although I love it too). I’m talking about chocolate brown, one of the hottest colours for winter. Adding this warm hue to your wardrobe is a sure way to keep the winter chill away.

Three small and simple ways to add chocolate to your fashion diet?

1. Nailpolish.

Take a leaf out of Lauren Conrad’s book and try chocolate nails.

Rimmel 540 Chocolate Fountain

Jess and I are constantly telling you that nailpolish is the easiest (and cheapest) way to update your look. Well, it is! This Rimmel nailpolish is only $9.99. You can’t get much better than that. You might even have some change left over for a sneaky choccy bar.

2. Brown Smokey Eye

A brown smokey eye is the perfect antidote to the harsh, cold winter weather. It’s just as dramatic as a black smokey look but not as severe. Take your cue from these celebrity looks.

Try this Bobbi Brown palette to achieve this look.

3. Handbags

Embrace chocolate leather in your handbag. It’s the perfect neutral, like black, but it will go with so much more because it’s not as harsh.

Try these bags available from Strandbags.
