Festival Fashion Part 2

Kimono - c/o Marshalls
Fringe Dress - c/o Marshalls
Dolce Vita Booties - Thrifted
Hat - Target











I decided to go all out for my second Coachella look, because light layers are key for those hot festival days. This fringe dress was the perfect staple for my festival look, so layering on a breezy kimono added a fun pattern and some shade from the sun. 
You may recognize this kimono from a previous post and I'm wearing it again because I love it that much! I mean, $7 for a pretty kimono is a killer deal. Speaking of killer deals- this designer dress I'm wearing, it was only $24.99 thanks to Marshalls. If you follow me on instagram (@FrancescaPenko) you will recognize these Dolce Vita booties that I thrifted for under $10. I'm working on some hauls, so stay tuned for those! 

In other news- I can't wait to share the trailer renovation with you guys. We've been working out little butts off and it's becoming the coziest little home away from home EVER. It started raining earlier today, so I took Uriah inside to hang out and listen to the rain fall. I can't wait to go on camping trips all up and down the California coast. I have a list of all the places I want to go. Luckily my guys are up for anything, so this summer will be one to remember. 

Thank you for reading and stay tuned for another festival fashion look!

Festival Fashion

Free People Blouse - c/o Marshalls
Restyled Thrifted Jeans
Kelsi Dagger Heels - c/o Marshalls
Headpiece - Target













Festival fashion is all the rage rough now- kimonos, headpieces, fringe everywhere, and lots of boho layers. The music festivals themselves don't sound like my cup of tea, but I'm all about the festival fashion-I love dressing with more of a boho flair! I've teamed up with Marshalls and put together some outfits that you could wear at Coachella or home while day-dreaming of Coachella.

Now I didn't want to go full on hippie-chic, I wanted to put together outfits you could seriously see yourself wearing to coffee with friends, on a date, or wherever your travels take you. Because as much as we love looking at photos of that feather skirt or lace gown one of the Victoria Secret Angels wore to Coachella- realistically, we won't be wearing that anytime soon! 

My first outfit features is a light, airy blouse by Free People. Anything Free People makes I usually go crazy for, so finding this top at Marshalls for only $29.99 made for a little happy dance in the store. And ladies- Marshalls carries so.much.Free People. Everyone is always shocked when they find that out and sometimes I want to keep it a secret, but it's too good to not share! I love anything off the shoulder, but sometimes it's not as comfortable because it rides up or falls down, but this blouse has cutouts on the shoulder making it the perfect hybrid top. There's so much movement in this top and it just falls perfectly. I also love how low-cut the back is- there is something so feminine about a low-back piece. I paired some thrifted skinny jeans (that I restyled for a more distressed look)to show a little of my shape, which is key for incorporating some bohemian pieces in your style. 
Another killer Marshalls find would be these wedges. Where do I even begin? Every time I wear them, I'm stopped multiple times by people either asking where they can buy them or complimenting me on them. The stacked wedge heel makes for ultimate comfort, the soft laser-cut suede adds a great textural element, and they're the perfect neutral shade, so I can pair them with just about anything. The finishing touch was a sparkly headpiece-- I just tried this trend this week and I'm pretty much obsessed. They add such a great pop or color or glitz to outfits and still have a really relaxed look.

How would you dress for a music festival?

Thank you for reading and stay tuned for my next outfit!

Spring Layers

Free People Jacket & Crossbody - c/o Marshalls
Skirt & Top - Plato's Closet
Scarf - H&M
Heels - random online store








The mornings start a bit cooler, so layering is key! I opted for some light layers for this simple, yet ladylike look. I love throwing on a scarf to add a little color or print to my look.  I also mixed textures with this embroidered denim jacket and netted skirt. I'm obsessed with this jacket- I had been eyeing this Free People jacket online and was so excited to find it at Marshalls for a fraction of the price. 

We have been busy over here lately. If you follow me on Instagram (@FrancescaPenko), you may remember me posting about #ourlittletrailer. Nick and I bought a 1978 Aristocrat to beautify for our camping, now "glamping" trips. Well, in less than a month we have our first trip planned, so everyday  we are working like crazy to get it ready. I've been taking lots of photos and I can't wait to post them all. It's been a budget DIY heaven for me! I don't know what I'm more excited about- having a cute little trailer for adventures or not having to tent camp with an infant. Both are a win!

Thanks for reading!
