Coachella 2017!

I know this is a long overdue post but I just couldn’t help but write about one of my favorite moments of this past year. Last Spring, I was lucky enough to experience Coachella Weekend 1 with a group of wonderful and energetic people.

Our AirBnB was amaaaazing and so so nice! It was a large two story house with multiple rooms and plenty of air mattresses and beds. It was nice having a lot of bathrooms because people can get ready at the same time. All the girls took over the mirrors – bonding over makeup and hair. It was super fun getting ready each day- from the flash tattoos to the finishing touches on outfits. While the girls got ready, the guys drank and played games downstairs.

Overall, Coachella was an amazing weekend- full of music, festival vibes ~*~*~*, and endless dancing. Not to mention, the food was amazing as well!!! I strongly recommend the paella, Chris and I loved it so much we got it twice. If you’re trying to go for something refreshing that will quench your thirst from the blazing hot sun, go for the mango agua fresca or fresh fruity popsicles!

Just as you would expect, Coachella is full of instagram-worthy backdrops and decor. People from all around gather together in their thoughtfully put-together outfits and accessories. One of the best (yet stressful) parts of Coachella is shopping for cute outfits! It’s so fun putting together combinations of clothes and accessories. Coachella is one of the few festivals you can go all out for and wear things you normally don’t get the opportunity to wear. People assume it’s super expensive but honestly, I found a lot of my pieces from thrifting and sales sections of common retail stores.

Day 1 outfit: 

  • Black hat with western accents – FOREVER 21
  • Layered choker set – FOREVER 21
  • Black sheer eyelash dress – FOREVER 21
  • Black bra and Spanx – Personal

Because I have an eclectic taste in music, Coachella is the perfect festival for me! I’m a gal who loves EDM, indie, rock, and alternative and I got to see a little bit of everything every single night. Here are some of the artists I was able to see:

Friday: Oh Wonder, Glass Animals, Father John Misty, Empire of the Sun, Dillon Francis, the XX, Sam Gellaitry

Saturday: Lady Gaga, Future, DJ Snake, Martin Garrix, Two Door Cinema Club*, Local Natives, GRYFFIN

Sunday: Porter Robinson & Madeon, Marshmello, Grouplove, Jai Wolf, Tove Lo, What so Not

* I particularly loved seeing Two Door Cinema club because I’ve been listening to them since high school and it felt so nostalgic watching them live!
