As many of you in Southern California know this weekend is the famed SPLASH HOUSE in Palm Springs. A hotel festival unlike any other, with the vibes of Coachella but the atmosphere of a private party that really makes you feel like you are a part of something special and just badass going on in the desert – the lineup alone would make you melt. This year NAKID will be invading and we thought it would be awesome to team up with Julia Friedman to give you all a little advice on what’s hot and what’s not. So while you are dancing your asses off and sweating magic to the tunes of Odesza, Justin Martin, Lee Floss, Jai Wolf, Bixel Boys and more, you can feel like the hottest thing in the room, and were not talking about sun on your ass either. So without further ado we’ll let Julia tell you how to get those boys eating out of the palm of your hands while feeling like a desert queen!
1. ONE PIECES / BIKINIS:
I love neutral colors like black, beige, and blush! My favorite bikini right now is by Static Swimwear, super simple and fits amazing! https://www.staticswimwear.com/collections/static-swimwear/products/sunset-tri-top with Topanga bottom.
One pieces are great for the summer and for festivals because you can always throw a pair of jeans shorts on over it! Favorite one piece right now is by Beach Riot (http://www.thegirlandthewater.com/collections/beach-riot-stone-cold-fox-1/products/beach-riot-gold-dust-one-piece-copper-canyon )
3. TSHIRT DRESSES:
For me, t shirt dresses are a must for summer because they are so easy and casual but at the same time they are trendy and cute. I love to throw one on over a bathing suit if I’m headed to the beach because it covers just enough and it is comfy and loose!
2. JEAN SHORTS:
I’m obsessed with vintage Levi’S jean shorts! I have 3 pairs and they are all different! I think the most fun part about them, is that they are all unique and they all fit differently. I bought one pair from urban outfitters and I had to try on multiple pairs all marked the same size to finally find one that fit me perfectly!
Strappy sandals are my favorite for the summer time. I’ve had this one black and white pair for almost 3 years! I also scored on a pair of vintage Chanel sandals for this summer which I’m super excited about! This summer I am traveling a lot and would love to get a cute colorful pair such as these: http://www.shopstyle.com/g/women/mystique/pom-pom-lace-up-sandal/516580922
5. A POLAROID is perfect for capturing memories and I love the cute photos I can keep forever! I have the fujifilm instax mini!
Last but not least, I love a cute backpack for the summer that you can go out with or throw tanning oil and water in for the beach! I have a nice one by Stella McCartney that I’m currently assessed with, and I also have a more BoHo one by Shashi NYC that I also love! (http://shashi.bigcartel.com/product/aida-book-bag)
