There’s a distinctly sweet smell to the air this time of year, as the summer months creep closer and closer. The breeze starts to feel different..warmer and more inviting. I don’t know what it is exactly, but there’s something about the Spring that fills me with feelings of nostalgia.
As someone who dresses according to my moods, I’ve been choosing a lot of vintage denim and floral accessories lately, which are very fitting for the way this gorgeous weather has been making me feel. But throughout the changing seasons, one thing remains constant– I am ALWAYS in the mood to stand out and be different.
For this look, I paired vintage denim shorts and a super girly flower crown with Civil’s Jackson print cropped tank top to add a unique, bright and fun touch that makes a statement, sets me apart and helps me celebrate my difference.
My girl Jessi Jae Joplin and Chelsea Rea from the LA-based fashion site, The Fabulous Stains, went all out and showed just how Radiant they can be, rocking their Civil Spring fashion trends. This is the go-to place for the most groundbreaking fashion and everything that is well, fabulous.

“Fab Stains Jessi Jae Joplin and Chelsea Rea recently teamed up to shoot this fun spread for Civil Clothing! Civil celebrates the difference of individuality and recognizes the value of cultural multiplicities. They believe that everyone is different in their own unique way… and one way they “Celebrate the Difference” is through fashion and style. We couldn’t agree more with this statement.”

In the wise words of Oscar Wilde, “Be Yourself; Everyone else is already taken.” You don’t need to look any further than your own heart to find out who you are and who you can be. True happiness lies within. Discover who you are and celebrate it! Besides, who wants to be just like somebody else?
Weekend 1 of Coachella Music Fest was a success! Surprisingly, much of the festivals highlights happened on the smaller Outdoor Theatre stage instead of the Coachella stage with the three headliners.
Crowds for acts like Lorde and Pharrell Williams were MASSIVE. Perhaps because of his dancers and special guests including Snoop Dogg, Nelly, Busta Rhymes and Gwen Stefani, who performed a variety of hits going back as far as ‘Hot in Herre’ with Nelly and ‘Get Lucky’ with Daft Punk.
Diddy also performed with Nas onstage during Day 2 of the festival. Nas also brought out fellow East Coast rappers Jay-Z and Diddy to perform Dead Presidents and Where I’m From, and Hate Me Now, respectively, during his midnight set.
It was another memorable year for Coachella Weekend 1 attendees. The fun isn’t over yet though! There is still one more weekend of fun this coming weekend for Weekend 2.
Who’s going out this weekend? If you have any Civil photos from Weekend 1 of the festival, tag us @CivilClothing #CivilClothing and we will feature them on the blog!
