Season 2 at Coachella with Ray-ban! 

Day 1:

We checked into our Ray-Ban Oasis located in the heart of Palm Springs and prepped for the festival with a session of Pilates. Once the work out was done, we all hung out by the pool (filled with every single floatie you can think of). After that I visited the American Express house for a preview of their #AmexPlatinum house over at the Parker Hotel. Before heading over to the Festival we made another stop over at The Paper Magazine party to catch up with friends and pre-game (duh).

Favorite acts: The XX, Dj Shadow, BANKS and Empire of The Sun

Day 2: 

The aftermath of day one took a toll on most of us, therefore we decided to stick around the house, enjoy the sun and take advantage of pool time since I don’t really have that here in New York City (It is pouring outside as I write this blog post.)

After catching the iconic Lady Gaga perform her hits (and I forget how many she actually has) the squad and I headed over to Neon Carnival, which to some people is better than the actual music festival (hint: I’m one of those people). Think if Six Flags had an outdoor dance club located in the center of the theme park, minus the super scary rides– That’s Neon Carnival.

Favorite acts: Lady Gaga, Martin Garrix and DJ Snake

Day 3:

Day 3 we all had a late start, but can you blame us? We started the day with massages (I mean, can we start everyday with a massage?) and then hung out by the pool for some R&R time before heading over to the festival for the last day.

Favorite acts: Kendrick Lamar, DJ Khaled, Galantis, Tove Lo and Lorde

During the weekend, I was fully equipped and stocked with my new favorite pair of shades by Ray-Ban. The General were created in 1987 as a tribute to Lieutenant Douglas Macarthur, today’s design has been reinterpreted with a range of colors and gloss finishes to choose from. Think of them as the classic and iconic aviators, which inspired these, for guys with faces that are longer and more rounder. (If aviators don’t look good on you, The Generals will). They come in 8 color gradients and are available online, right here.

The New York chill has made me miss short-sleeve shirt and swim season (a whole lot). So, when I made it to Miami you know I was super pumped to show some skin. Here are some of my looks that I wore from my recent trip. A few highlights included attending the Veuve Cliquot #VCCarnaval, strolling around the art deco area and living my best life over at the EAST Miami hotel.

Last weekend I was invited to join a few of my fellow blogger mates in sunny Miami for Art Basel (Yup, the same trip I went on exactly a year ago). This time I wanted to share with you guys and highlight the things you can do during Basel (minus the after parties and the actual Art Basel Show). For example.. renting a three floor luxury yacht with your pals (thanks Persol), flying a drone in the middle of the ocean and sharing a few laughs, drinks and making unforgettable memories. For this trip I wore a pair of Persol’s folding  Cellor shades (a folding version of the iconic Cellor model which was created in the 1950s, yup probably before your parents’ time). They were the perfect classic touch to my traditional clean and minimal yacht look. For more travels, join the adventure by following me on IG + Snap Chat= MotiAnkari.
