Spring Conscious

Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.

Ya’ girl is serving you some flower power kimono suit OOTD against this massive bubblegum Desert X structure because REJOICE! It is Spring season, Flower Babies!

The looming specter of climate change and human mistreatment on the planet is a recurring theme in this year’s Desert X exhibitions. The curatorial team’s decision to spotlight these issues through art in the extreme desert environment reflects the fragility of planet Earth as a whole. Bravo, Desert X. Y’all are pure genius.

Superflex’s Dive-In art installation resembles the bright, colorful castles that decorate fish tanks, or porous pieces of coral. In introducing the piece, the Superflex’s art collective explained that it was designed to attract the fish that will someday be swimming in the Coachella Valley, itself once the site of an ancient sea. “Sea levels are rising and human habitats will be taken over by marine habitats,” the artists told the crowd before projecting a video of a copy of the sculpture, submerged in the seas of the Caribbean.

I chose this PJ-inspired kimono suit from Lovedrobe for a photo-op with this popular installation before a delicious, Italian dinner in Palm Desert’s Mimmo’s Italian Restaurant & Bar. True to size, this set is a perfect addition to my Spring wardrobe. Made with a light and airy silk-feel fabric, I can’t wait to wear this set separately. I’m thinking… this top with jeans and these trousers with a simple white tank.

I have a couple more OOTD photoshoots in the midst of this year’s Desert X installations so please stay tuned! In the meantime and in keeping up with Desert X climate change awareness theme, I am eyeing this Everlane 100% recycled fabric lightweight jacket perfect for Spring. Each jacket is made out of at least 25 plastic bottles and that’s pretty dope. Here’s to many more Springs to come because we are soulful, strong, conscious-living and recycling Bebots!
