Three Years of Coachella Outfits

Three Years of Coachella Outfits

I love choosing my Coachella OOTD! As promised, here's the details of mine over 3 years I hit the big festival in the desert.

I've said it before, I'll say it again - You can rock whatever the hell you want at Coachella, this is your Catwalk... work it! Now seriously though... although this is a place to strut your thing, it's also super important to be comfortable... it's a big place, it can be mad hot in the day and freakin cold at night. So, that being said, if you actually want to enjoy yourself and not look like the poor girl I saw last year, curled up freezing with her 6" stilettos strewn by her side... listen up on my basic yet basically essential Coachella OOTD tips!

  • WEAR COMFORTABLE SHOES! There's 99'000 people attending each day.... what does that say to you? It's a big ass place thats what it says. So wearing comfortable footwear to get from stage to stage, and food truck to food truck, and bar to bar is important. Trainers, flat boots, comfy sandals... make your choice wisely... believe me you'll look and feel better rocking it out at the end of the night to Beyonce in your flats than you will weeping over your achey tootsies in the corner next to your literal killer heels.
  • CARRY A BAG/BACKPACK! It's the desert, you need to carry water. I'm the worst in the world for drinking water... coffee, wine, great... all day long... water not so much. (I'm writing this right now with a cup of coffee in scorching Antalya) *goes to get a glass of water* Also you can throw in the other things I'm about to list.
  • HAT/HAIR TIES! I wore a hat one Coachella, keeps the sun off the face, does the job but for me I'm more of a shove the hair up in a messy bun now and again to cool off. If I live up to bright eyes dirty hair anywhere its Coachella... wake up, dry shampoo and go is my way. 
  • LARGE MULTIFUNCTIONAL SCARF/SHAWL! This is a must in my eyes... lay out on it in the shade when its too hot, lay on it to take a mid day power nap between shows, lay it out for a picnic after visiting a food truck,  lay it out when you claim your spot before a performance... you get the idea :) If it's freezing at night get all wrapped in it as a scarf. Also, if its really windy and dusty which it can be you can wrap it up and around your mouth so you don't inhale all that desert dust.
  • SUNGLASSES! You know why, yes because they look cool :) but seriously, protect your eyes, its sunny in the desert (shocking I know).
  • EXTERNAL CHARGER! Not necessarily under the OOTD title but equally useful to keep your phone charged so that you can capture your awesome OOTD!

So here's my 9 Coachella looks!
