How I made it five years in LA without ever going to Coachella will forever be a mystery to me. I have to be honest, I just never had much interest, didn’t think it would be my cup of tea. But man was I wrong! Coachella turned out to be one of the most fun weekends I’ve ever had! Great music, great friends, and great fashion… so really everything I love most in the world.
Today I’m sharing with you what I wore during my very first Coachella weekend! I have to be honest – when planning my outfits the biggest thing I was concerned about was how comfortable I would be. I knew they would be long days and I wanted to wear durable outfits that I would be comfortable in for 12+ hours. But not only was I concerned with physical comfort, but also how comfortable I felt! I knew I would never have as much fun if I was feeling self-conscious in what I was wearing. I think there’s a lot of pressure to wear something crazy to Coachella, but I think it’s much more important to feel confident than trying to fit in with the crowd.

OKAY! Enough blabbing, let’s get to it!
I love this outfit so much! It was practical and perfect for Coachella. I was so comfy running around all day and had the best time. We got to see so much amazing music this day, including my favorite show of the whole weekend: BLEACHERS! They’re one of my favorite bands and they put on one of the most fun shows that I saw all weekend. Plus, they’re from Jersey, just like me!
Side note – if you’re wondering about my hair, I decided to go with some extensions so I could play some more at Coachella. I knew I didn’t want to wear much makeup since it was going to be so hot, so I figured some fun hairstyles would make up for the simple makeup looks. These are from Barefoot Blonde and I’m obsessed with them! They’re in the color Brown Sugar and match my hair perfect. Check them out if you’re looking for clip-in extensions!
This was outfit one of two for day two! Before heading to the festival we went over to the Pandora Indio Invasion pool party. It was a blast! There was awesome music and such cute photo ops. I wanted to wear something cute and colorful to compliment the fun vibe of this pool party.
Plus, it was pretty hot this day, so the airiness of this top really worked in my favor. ALSO! Does anyone recognize this nose ring? It’s actually the nose ring my character wore in F The Prom! They let me keep it and I decided to whip it out for this party!
Since we were heading to the festival a little later than usual after the Pandora party I got to whip out these adorable pants for the second outfit of day two! I’ve been waiting for the perfect moment to wear these pants and, I have to say, this is one of my favorite outfits of Coachella. It kept me the perfect temperature when the sun went down and it got a little colder. Even though this was a pretty simple outfit, the layered jewelry and the frayed bottoms to the pants added the festival vibe I was looking for!
Our last day… boooo! I was so sad that this was our last day. And uh oh, we have a Lizzie McGuire in our midst because I am indeed an outfit repeater. Well… sort of. I’m actually wearing the same crop top with this outfit that I wore with my pants the night before. It’s one of my favorite tops and it’s so easy to pair with patterned pieces since it’s so simple. It just lets the other pieces of the outfit be the stars of the show. And, let’s be honest, this skirt deserves to be the star! I also layered a chunky necklace with my black bandana.
PS – it is just as dusty as everyone says! I thought everyone was exaggerating, but a bandana is a must, especially by the end of the night. Even if you don’t want to wear it with your outfit, bring it with you in your bag. You’ll be so happy you did and your body will majorly thank you!
Coachella rocked my world you guys! I am so grateful that I went this year! We got to see so much amazing music. I got to hang out with friends, both new and old. And most importantly, I got to let lose and just have an overall incredible time. If you ever get the opporuntiy to go, I promise it’s not overrated. You will have the time of your life dancing the night away and singing your heart out!
