Coachella is truly a music festival unlike any other. With myriad musicians, delicious dining, exciting exhibitions, a couple of celebrities and fantastic fashion all around, Coachella proved to be an exhilarating experience for me from start to finish. Curating three unique head-to-toe looks for each day of the festival was one of my favorite activities.
h&m SHIRT • american apparel SHORTS • huf SOCKS
diff SUNGLASSES • converse SHOES
For my first look, I wanted to make a vibrant impression with loud tie-dye prints throughout. My socks and shirt are balanced by super soft cotton shorts by American Apparel. Shiny sunnies from Diff Eyewear and hi-tops from Converse completed this audacious outfit.
Between navigating through the colorful crowds and listening to a lineup of spectacular artists for the first time, day one was eye-opening to say the least. I loved seeing BROODS and Mac Miller perform their sets at the event's expansive outdoor grounds. There was so much to see and explore, including H&M's tent highlighting their clothing collaboration and Absolut vodka's near-hidden club space.
With my second set of sartorial choices, I wanted my oversized, slightly-destroyed shirt from ZARA to steal the show. Simple accessories like a bandana tied around my arm and a set of silver rings took this look to the next level. I also rocked a cat eye to match the edginess of this ensemble.
Most of my second day was spent at POPSUGAR's Cabana Club party, an exclusive event for influencers and celebrities alike at the Colony Palms Hotel. Seeing Daya perform her hits and Tyler Posey mingle right in front of me was so surreal (at one point my hands were shaking with excitement). Sugarfina, Ulta Beauty, Nordstrom and Three Olives provided swag, sweets and spirits all day long at the poolside bash. My favorite moment was filming a fun Oscar-red-carpet-style video. It was such an honor to be invited by POPSUGAR and I'm already looking forward to attending next year!
pintrill PIN • metallica HAT • urban outfitters SHIRT • american eagle SHORTS • stance SOCKS
sephora EYE COLOR • becca HIGHLIGHTER
My final look was one of my favorites because I customized it so much. I took a pink tee from Urban Outfitters and a pair of denim shorts from American Eagle and cut them so they would both be shorter and allow me to show more sunkissed skin. A cherry emoji pin and a Metallica hat were cheeky additions to this midriff-baring outfit. Makeup-wise, I decided to emphasize the glam rock vibes I was giving by lining my brows with glitter eye color and accentuating my cheekbones with Becca Cosmetics' Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighter in Opal.
I really took the time to admire all of the sensory experiences Coachella had to offer on the third and final day of the festival. Nostalgia already started to set in as I enjoyed my final Cupcake Vineyards Rosé Poptail (something I will definitely be recreating this summer) and as I watched Lorde give dazzling performances of her beloved songs. Coachella gave me memories that will forever be ingrained in my mind... at least until next year!
