Denim Day

I have rounded up a few of my favorite denim looks from my previous posts to commemorate Denim Day. 
On this day in 1990,  a woman was raped and pressed charges. While the alleged rapist was convicted and sentenced, the Italian court overturned the conviction in 1998 because the victim wore tight jeans. It was argued that she must have necessarily have had to help her attacker remove her jeans, thus making the act "consensual".  As of 2008 the Italian Supreme Court has overturned their findings, and there is no longer a "denim" defense to the charge of rape.
As a blogger, a female and a person, I take pride in the fact that I DRESS FOR ME. I take pride in what I wear and why I am wearing it. The way a woman dresses is not an invitation for unsolicited advances and this is still yet a very common issue in today's society.
As a style influencer, I am sharing my support for women AND men who want to dress for them and also in support against sexual assault. There is never an excuse.

I have survived another year of Coachella. This year was a bit more laid back than the previous year for me but definitely a blast! 
I also made a major hair colour change, if you didn't notice. Thanks to the fabulous team at Sassoon Salon in Beverly Hills for helping me create a new Spring colour from their latest collection, Umbra.
I never need an excuse to go to Palm Springs. It is definitely one of my favorite places on earth. While there, I feel like I am in some fabulous time capsule of modernism meets Fantasy Island. I am not one to shy away from the heat either, so anytime I can escape poolside, I will take advantage.
I had such an amazing time catching up with friends and relaxing at the Parker Palm Springs at the Pandora Jewelry Lounge where I was able to view their wonderful Spring/Summer collections. My group and I finished off the first night with the #HMLovesCoachella poolside event, while wearing all H&M of course.
Over the weekend, I donned various 'festival style' outfits from amazing brands such as SaboSkirt, H&M, Gypsy05, Lovers & Friends, Express and more!
