I have a super important and exciting blogging seminar this weekend. This activity pretty much trumps everything! (I’m pretty much expected to be there–although, I am surprised that they did not ask me to present and give away all of my blogging secrets!) Also, I am headed to Cali with my gal pals next weekend, so Coachella was never in the cards for me this year!

So what do you do when you can’t go to Coachella?  You grab your bestie Pearl, pick out a great outfit, head to the desert, and  have a FAUXCHELLA!

At our fauxchella, we were up to our usual shenaningans.


We twirled our parasols in the sun.


We laughed at each other’s jokes.

We danced around.


We complimented one another’s hair when it blew perfectly in a gentle breeze.


And we pondered the meaning of life while wearing flower crowns.

Now let’s talk about my outfit! My maxi dress is by Young, Fabulous, and Broke (be sure to check them out!) I love this dress because it is so lightweight, it is LONG enough for me (#tallgirlproblems), and it is super figure-flattering. I’m sure that the blue & brown ombré color that I’m wearing is out of season by now, but you can get this beautiful wine & pink colored dress from Nieman Marcus here.


I am also wearing my lovely flower headband made by none other than Pearl, herself!!


Want your own handmade blossom band? YOU’RE IN LUCK! I’m giving one away! Check out my instagram, @hypegirlherself, for details! The winner will be chosen at random next week, and will get to choose their color from the bands pictured below!


If you don’t win, don’t worry! Pearl sells them through her Etsy shop, here! AND THAT’S NOT ALL! Use the coupon code FLOWER33 for 33% off!! Because April showers bring May flowers, DUH! The coupon code is good until the end of the month!
