When you’re out in the Mojave desert, you have to plan on the drastic weather changes. So for the RiSE lantern festival, I opt for a white dress under a long gorgeous shirtdress that can be doubled as a duster coat. I knew it was going to be hot during the day and cold at night. When traveling light and not planning on bringing too much to a venue, it helps to wear layers. This shirtdress that I wore as a duster coat flutters in the wind, flows when you walk and flares out when you spin. I paired the outfit with some lace up boots. Accessorized in various gold necklaces and flash tattoos to complete the festival look as a desert Wild Child.
Growing up, my parents always told me “you’re a little wild”…and for the most part I couldn’t sit still. And I still can’t. Yoga is probably the only thing that keeps me still, albeit for one hour. lol. They say you need to be a little more ladylike! Booooring. I did try to a certain degree, but that innate tomboyish personality will always shine through because it simply can’t be buried. You just got to let it be. You live your own life, not what your parents perceive or dictate how you should live. As long as you’re happy that’s all that matters. Live the real you.
So my dear sweet child….stay young, stay wild. xx jt
