Coachella Fashion, Music, & Magic

Coachella Fashion, Music, & Magic
After attending Coachella on a whim for the first time four years ago, I have had severe FOMO whenever tickets go on sale every year since.  So now that I am fully recovered from my fourth Coachella, I am here to tell you about the fashion, the music, and the love that I encountered during the magic of weekend one. For me the excitement starts when I shop and plan out my outfits.  If we are being honest with one another, my shopping and planning is last minute and minimal, but exciting nonetheless.  When shopping for Coachella fashion, I look for pieces that I can supplement with things that I already have in my closet.  While my end goal is to pull together stylish looks, I also make comfort and functionality a priority.  A weekend in the desert is much more fun without blisters and sweat stains. Day one:  A flowy romper with platform sandals.  I found the romper at Forever 21 and chose it because I knew that it would be cool, comfortable, but still on trend.  I paired it with Coach platform sandals and a Brahmin crossbody bag that I already had in my closet.  I like taking a small bag into the festival so that it is effortless to carry throughout the day.

Day two:  A cotton dress with strappy leather sandals.  I bought the dress at American Eagle and chose it because I knew that it would be lightweight and breathable.  The sandals are Lucky Brand, and being soft leather I knew that they would stretch to keep me from getting blisters.  I wore the same Brahmin crossbody bag into the festival for day two.

Day three: A cotton crop top with highwaisted shorts.  I bought the crop top at Urban Outfitters to pair with shorts that I already had in my closet.  For day three I carried the Pisticci bag by Patricia Nash.  It is a bigger handbag than I would normally carry into the festival, but I wanted to have room for my Instax camera and a sweater for the late night performances.

Now that the fashion is covered, let’s get to the real reason why I love Coachella.  The music.  This year had a phenomenal lineup, and these performances were unforgettable.
  • My most anticipated performer: Ellie Goulding
  • My Coachella crush: James Bay
  • My favorite blast from the past: Pete Yorn
  • My favorite surprise artist: Sam Smith with Disclosure
  • Best Dressed: Sia
  • My Unexpected Favorite: Matt & Kim
  • The Most Magical Performance: Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros
Beyond the fashion and music, the overall atmosphere is indescribable.  Whoever said that Disneyworld is the “happiest place on Earth” has clearly never been to Coachella.  Between my neighbors at the campground, girls in the shower line, and everyone in the crowds during the performances, I have never had anything but positive encounters.  The art, the stages, the ferris wheel, the balloons, it all seems like a daydream.  A three day long daydream. Needless to say, add Coachella to your bucket list because it never disappoints.  When you do go remember to wear sunscreen, never pay for ‘VIP” showers, and talk to strangers! Breathe it all in and love it all out! For more Coachella snaps and fashion inspo check out my IG page, The Paper Dolls. It's all about what we wear. when we work. where we go. how we play! 💕
