There’s nothing like spending a few days in the beautiful California desert to help you fast forward to summer. I just got back from Coachella, where I was shooting fashion for the New York Times Styles section Instagram – @nytimesfashion – check out the whole slideshow of Coachella style here. There were too many good looks to include them all though, so you’ll see more Coachella fashion on Gastro Chic!

Here’s another citified look for the country: a black bikini, sheer black tank top, black lace skirt, black Coach bag and black Hunter wellies. It’s the Bonnaroo version of the little black dress.

I headed to the Great Googa Mooga this weekend with the intention of live tweeting and Instagramming every second of it. This was going to be fun! A huge food and wine festival in Prospect Park, the likes of which New York had never seen before. What could go wrong? (more…)
