Not even 100 degree heat can stop my love for all black everything. For day 3 I wore head to toe black in the form of slinky separates. The shorts were another bargain find from Forever 21 and I spied a very similar pair from Topshop Boutique for nearly 10 times the price. My biggest tip for navigating the fast fashion of F21 is to seek out anything plain and black. Sounds boring but these tend to be the pieces that look more expensive and as cheap staples they will nicely pad out your wardrobe. From my experience anything patterned or colourful runs the risk of looking cheap. It’s not going to work for everyones style but this mantra has paid off for me so far.
For my hair I took inspiration form a photo of Aline Weber, you may have seen it if you follow me on instagram here. I don’t often wear my hair up but I loved these plaits so much that I may try them in a non-festival setting. This turned out to be my favourite outfit of the weekend because it felt effortless and comfortable to wear all day. In the evening I added a denim shirt and a slick of deep coral lipstick.
So that was my incredible long weekend weekend in the desert. I promise I will stop going on about it now and get back to my usual city style and New York life… until next year that is x
