Coachella 2017

Hello Everyone! It’s been a crazy beginning of the month here from having to recover from the Euro trip jet lag (this usually never happens to me but it did) then Coachella happened… and we survived!!!

I had so much FUN and may want to live this crazy experience again in the coming years. I made some minimal preparation when it came to Coachella outfits/style as you can see from below collage at home. Truth be told was that I didn’t want/need to spend money on buying new clothes just for the sake of fitting into this event so I brought out whatever was already in my closet and tried to mix and match with some sensibly paired accessories. When I spoke with some gals from around the country at the camp site, they too felt that Coachella people were way way overdressed and that fashion manifested as a main stage in itself apart from going to see one’s favorite artists. The pressure to look great was certainly felt by me too but you know (shrugging my shoulders) I just wanted to go party and have fun, which was my main focus there.

Maje M bag, Caroll ethnic printed blouse, Theory shorts, Castaner espadrilles, Rag & Bone panama hat, Sezane denim jacket, Sezane La femme Tee, Sessun skirt, Isabel Marant dicker boots, Xirena romper
A printed romper from my 2015 Barcelona trip, Sezane denim jacket, Maje M bag, Isabel Marant boots, APC navy cardigan, Gerard Darel white peasant blouse, Sezanne La femme tee, Sessun skirt, K.Jacques tan flat sandals.

Feeling comfortable was essential to me as the heat was raised up to 30C + during the day while night time switched to a super chilly and windy environment so I wanted to be able to confront this extremely dry Palm Spring desert weather but also tried to incorporate some chic and fun elements to my simple outfits. Here were my ensembles 🙂

Outfits dissection includes: My beloved Isabel Marant brown ankle boots was a life saver for comfort and style and safety (I don’t know about you guys but I always fear to get stepped on during the dance party). I wore most of the items I prepared for except the lovely Sezane denim jacket was too heavy weight to tie around my waist walking  around during the day so I didn’t get to wear it unfortunately and I also did not get to wear my mom’s pick of the beloved Caroll blue printed blouse. Too hot for dark long sleeves top 🙁 Last note, the black Xirena romper was worn during the camp site day but not shown. It was a smart way to dress in that for a quick free style outdoor shower (the shower site was way too far and way too long line) by wearing a bikini under. Life made easier 🙂 The Maje bag was a great on sale purchase and was exactly what I have been looking for so great timing. I typically don’t carry a handbag around but in this situation, it revealed to be handy and quite stylish. The bandanas from Madewell were so versatile and chic so very pleased with these adds. Wore my Aurelie Bidermann red bracelets added a dose of chic to any outfits! My white light cotton peasant blouse from Gerard Darel worn every summer for the past 3 years is ripped and falling apart so will be on the look out to update it soon.

Lastly, I’ll share with you some of the personal raw photos from the event with my boyfriend Arjen, my little sister, and our friend Rene. Although this year the line up was not as impressive as previous years and with Beyoncé’s cancelleation, we still enjoyed very much listening to Radiohead, Empire of the Sun, Shura, Lady Gaga was so fun, DJ Snake and DJ Khaled, Lorde and Kendrick Lamar, Arjen’s fav Justice and the most impressive Martin Garrix!!! Enjoy and have a great weekend everyone!
