If you are headed off to Coachella this weekend or next, I am super jealous of you. I haven’t been in 6 years and every year I kick myself for once again not going. There’s always next year, right? I remember when I went back in 2009, I had no idea what to expect. When I do it again, let me just say I will be doing a couple things differently. For one, I will be staying in a hotel and not camping, there’s nothing like waking up at 7am in a pool of your own sweat (TMI, maybe?). But above all, I would most definitely make much better wardrobe choices. The mistake I made back then was not realizing just how important fashion is at music festivals. All I knew is that i was going to be outside for three days in 100+ degree desert weather, so i just went for wearing my bathing suit and some sort of light cover-up. This is a fine choice to make, but realize that everyone else is bringing their fashion A-game to Coachella. If you do nothing else, think boho: anything fringe, floral, or vintage looking, and you are good to go. Also, it should go without saying that you need to bring some major sunscreen, protective sunglasses, and a great hat. My last piece of advice for #winning at Coachella? Get yourself a solar-powered iphone charger, because all those selfies are gonna drain your battery fast.
Thanks for reading- have a great weekend, and don’t forget to hydrate! 😉 xo
