Can you believe we are in Mid-February already? Time is flying by and in no time April will be around the corner and with that…the festival season! With Coachella kicking off on April the 13th-22nd I want to share an early introduction to the festival fashion trends. I drove 45 minutes outside of Abu Dhabi to get a view of the Abu Dhabi desert and share some of my favorite festival must-have pieces with all of you. Kimonos are a perfect layering piece and a must-have for the spring and summer. The styling possibilities are endless; you can style it with a high-low effect as seen below with shorts, with pants or jeans and a pair of sandals, you can open the kimono and wear a simple tank underneath. You can also go full on Palm Spring vibes and add a fedora and booties. I personally love the relaxed and boho vibe a kimono offers and the movement of this Free People silk floral kimono which also comes in yellow. I also have my eye on this velvet kimono; the fringe is amazing and it would look great with a pair of blue shorts. I don’t want to brag but Soraya Hennessy has the IT bags this festival season; our Fringe Bag is boho and light, the LA LA LAND bucket bag is perfect for Coachella and nothing says like your ready to have fun like our Fiesta bag.
Behind the scenes: After a red eye flight from Johannesburg to Abu Dhabi Tom and I landed in Abu Dhabi at 6:00am yesterday morning and kicked off the day bright and early! We had a wonderful time in Cape Town and I look forward to sharing a full post of our 10 day trip in the next few weeks. I loved reading your DM’s about my InstaStories and I love sharing my travels with all of you. I am back in Abu Dhabi for 4 days and then travel to Chicago for the weekend and then Miami for about 10 days. I will be packing over 300 mochilas and shipping the Soraya Hennessy orders for Spring. I am so excited to share some exciting Soraya Hennessy news in the next few days! Thank you for reading and have a great week ahead!
