Coachella is just around the corner + to me that means the kick off to festival season! Whether you are heading out to Palm Springs for the festival to enjoy the music or head to parties or heck just hang by the pool, I am rounding up all of your ‘must have’ essentials at various price points that will get you through this festival in comfort + style! Usually when I head to the desert I am living in swimwear, dresses + denim shorts and of course to survive the festival you need a great backpack + some comfy shoes, check out my favorites below!
I am a little behind with blogging after being swamped with event planning + work but here I am prepping for Coachella with one of my boho chic dresses paired with the cutest mini bag that is perfect to wear to any festival! Although I am not one to attend the actual festival (I am more of a party + hang by the pool gal), I always like to dress the part – I mean who doesn’t love an easy boho chic look? 😉
I love a great fit + flare dress, especially a fun printed dress like this one that is great to wear year round (not just for Coachella). The flared sleeves are an added bonus, I am all about a fun sleeve now-a-days!
I usually style one of these dresses with a lace bandeau underneath for added comfort + a little lace detail if needed (especially if it is a deep v neck cut).
This Rebecca Minkoff Mini M.A.B. tote is great for festival season since it fits all your essentials, is comfy to style + carry + matches with everything (especially when you style it with a metallic hue like this one)!
When it comes to shoes, I opted for a cute tan chunky heel bootie with peep toes. Perfect way to show off your new pedi but also keep your feet from getting dirty at the festival in flip flops or sandals (plus the chunky heel makes them very comfortable).
ICMYI – Festival Season shopping is in full swing with Coachella just weeks away so I wanted to share one of my favorite trends I LOVE wearing out in Palm Desert and that is…yup, you guessed it – PALM TREES + PALM PRINT! I mean seriously, who doesn’t love palm print for summer anyway but when in Palm Springs, I think palm trees + palm print on your clothing is kinda a requirement, no? :p
Whether you are heading to the festival, lounging by the pool or off to some parties (or hey maybe you are just chillin’ at home + love some desert vibes)…these picks are perfect to keep you cool + stylish in the desert heat all weekend long!
C o a c h e l l a Time! With Coachella just days away, I am getting into the whole ‘desert‘ vibes kinda feeling with comfy, casual looks like this one. Nothing makes me happier than wearing comfy outfits where I can eat 10 pounds worth of food without it showing (haha jk :p) but for realz…over-flowing dresses like this one are the b e s t!
What also makes them awesome is that they are easy, breezy and can be dressed up or down. So for Coachella…all you need is some great sunnies, some comfy sandals and a great bag and you are ready to head out to Palm Springs!
My dress / top is from M Made in Italy, a great new brand I discovered during a Coachella gifting event last week in LA (#perksofblogging). I love this piece so much I pretty much wore it all day (well after shooting)♥ I couldn’t find the exact link to it on the internet, but I found more from M Made in Italy at Dillards.
And similardresses below 🙂
When you head to Coachella, it’s all about comfort…I scored these gladiator block sandals from Old Navy on clearance…yes ladies and gents…Old Navy! I have had a ton of people ask me where these are from and when I say Old Navy, the look of shock on their face is priceless…yes, crazy I know! Best purchase I have made there since my favorite white jeans!
My backpack (also perfect for Coachella) is from Vera Bradley and it is the best! Great quality leather, roomy and honestly it’s a mix of highfashion and functionality! 🙂
As for my accessories…it’s all boho chic ready ♥ I got a few fun pieces from the Coachella gifting event I went to:
