Rookie ass mistake I made here: Never wear new shoes to Coachella. WTF was I thinking?! Taking a foot break here and chilling barefoot in the grass was pretty great. These JC's are too cute though! Hard to resist breaking them in there.

What's a Coachella photo diary without some windmills? Duh. Haha. These are from the road trip up! Why are windmills so mesmerizing?  Silent giants you.

Me - "I don't want to see Calvin Harris, lets go get some drinks".  The mission failed half way towards destination.  The music was so infectious I had to stop and dance .

Picked up this beautiful fringed bag at Fabulous Rag boutique in Pacific Beach. They have pretty cool little fringed bags right now. If you pop in (speaking to you San Diego natives) don't forget to give Frank Vinyl a little shout out!

Something about seeing people from above while spinning makes me feel special. Any place with a Ferris Wheel is ok by me. Ferris wheel Diaries.

GIRL CRUSH: Inspirafashion

 photo inspira1_zps57018194.jpg All photos from Inspirafashion

You know I am such a sucker for floppy hats and anything floral. This girl knows how to make everything look adorable. How cute is that floral dress with the great cutouts shown above? I have been following Kathleen for a while now so thought I should share her blog, Inspirafashion with you for todays' Girl Crush. Do you know Kathleen already? What do you think of her blog? If you guys have any blogs you know of that you think deserve to be "girl crushed" comment below with a link or inbox me:! xo Francesca

(ps) Sorry I haven't been writing in Spanish for you guys! I hope the spanish speakers don't feel left out! I am well aware that most of you already speak english anyway but it's always nice to be able to read in your first language. I am working on inserting a plug-in soon that translates everything directly to spanish. Have any of you used this before? Anyway, it will be back shortly! Amongst all the other crazy changes about to happen to my blog design. xx

Grey Maxi Dress Forever21, Mexican Artisan bag, Vintage Belt and hat, Jeffrey Campbell Watson booties
photos by John Smith

I just got this dress about a two weeks ago and already have worn it one hundred ways! The best part is it is from Forever21. Grey (weirdly my favorite color for clothes), low back, comfortable and easy to wear on so many different levels. I wore this out on a Saturday with a Mexican artisan bag, vintage belt and hat. Doing a few of my favorite things : buying flowers, eating at my favorite place and wasting time haha. We stopped by an Ethiopian restaurant near my house that encourages you to eat with your hands (I dig it.. haha). This is one of my favorite spots in SD: Muzita Abyssinian Bistro. Afterwards, I headed to pick up some flowers for the house and my usual flower spot in Hillcrest. Pretty Standard Saturday. Anyway, if you are in the area, you should stop by Muzita. Who knows, I wouldn't be surprised if you ran into me there! xo Francesca

Forever21 Dress and Backpack, Steve Madden Boots, Van De Vort Bodychain
photos by John Smith

Taking a break from the shows and jumping on the Ferris Wheel just after sunset was the best idea ever! The view from above of the lights was beautiful!  The few moments of silence John and I got to share above all the Coachella craziness happening below was memorable. I think this day two outfit was my favorite in Forever 21 and Steve Madden. Easy, breasy, beautiful, Coachella girl. Woah. yes, I did that. Ok I think that's my cue to retire for the day. Talk soon my little blog heads! Xo F
