Coachella Dreaming

Festival season is finally here! This is the perfect time of year to wear that lovely flower crown you've been dying to wear with a flowy maxi dress and to dance your little heart out under the sun. My favorite music festival, Coachella, has just begun yesterday in Indio, California. Sadly, I'm still in cloudy New York. I wish I could just hop on a plane and jet to California but unfortunately I can't (wahh), so mad I'm missing out on the good vibes, awesome tunes and sunny weather. But there's always next year right. However, this year I'm just going to imagine I'm going to Coachella, hence my frantic "packing" I've been doing. So I decided to give you guys a little peek of what's going in my suitcase. I compiled three outfits that would be a must for Coachella including lots of booties, crochet, tribal patterns, fringe, floppy hats, and round sunnies (an absolute necessity!). Even though, its a music festival, the fashion is highlighted almost as mush as the music.

How rad are those shorts from Topshop!! The colors of  along with the pattern makes a great pair of shorts for the summer when you need to liven up an outfit. This outfit has a lot going on with all the different textures but festivals are the perfect place to go all out. There's no rules or exceptions!

I love this beautiful lacy dress paired with the flower crown, it gives off a flower child type of vibe. Also, the material of the dress is light enough that you wont be dying in the beaming sun of California.

The highlight of this outfit for me is definitely the suede skirt. These Sam Edelman ankle boots complement the skirt perfectly especially with woven tribal print to add some spunk. The floppy hat is a must, not just to look fashionable, but to shield your skin from the torching sun. I also love the Free People diestressed leather tote which is not a surprise because I adore anything that's Free People. The brand gives off such a free spirited bohemian vibe.

For all of those readers who are dying to see the performances like me and you feel like you are missing out on all the awesomeness, you won't trust me. Because you can go on YouTube and watch the festival on a live stream ( thank goodness for technology). Go ahead  and listen to all your favorite bands. I know I will definitely be watching Beach House, Phoenix, Tame Impala, Wild Belle, The Postal Service,  and many more.
