Tunics + Tequila: Tequila Herradura and ocean+main Pre-Festival Gifting Suite

Tunics? Tequila? Festival season? Yes, please.
We recently teamed up with our friends at Tequila Herradura  to help our favorite bloggers get festival ready. We spent the afternoon by the pool with delicious tequila infused cocktails, nibbles from Loteria Grill Hollywood, and of course, plenty of ocean+main tunics and caftans.
