I’m sure all of you know by know that it was just Coachella szn. (if its not obvious enough from the million of social posts) I went to Wknd one and it was so much fun!! I am proudly a Coachella veteran since my first Coachella was last year. Coachella is honestly a marathon and it’s SO important to plan for it. I definitely learned a few tips on how to make the experience better. The time and preparation it takes to get ready is really overwhelming, but the buildup definitely adds to the excitement you get when you’re actually at the festival!!
I would totally write a whole post on my overall experience of Coachella, but it would honestly be sooooo long, so I’ll just talk about my outfit for Day 1! Coachella might as well be a fashion show, people are dressed up in their festival gear, girls put together the cutest outfits, and everyone just goes all out! I honestly love it.
Anyways back to talking about my outfit. I was highly inspired by all the sheer pieces trending, including sheer dresses and skirts. I love the idea of wearing pieces that aren’t everyday, so I leaned towards this daring outfit. Keywords that represent me: SLITS AND DEEP V NECKLINES! I looked everywhere online for some sort of sheer maxi skirt, but was having no luck finding one I loved. I ended up fashioning a sheer maxi dress and having it sewn into this skirt. It’s from the Coachella collection from H&M. I’d usually NEVER buy something made for Coachella to the festival, but it ended up being perfect! The fabric has really dainty and cute details throughout including lace and polka dots. I hit up my talented friend/fellow fashionista/awesome designer + sewer Amery (link to her Instagram!) to fashion the dress into this skirt with a high slit. For the bodysuit, I found this studded deep v one on sale from Forever 21! Unfortunately it’s sold out now, I had to grab a large since it was only size left. I ended up having to alter and sew the whole thing to fit me the night before leaving! Anyways, I thought the skirt and the studded bodysuit were two very interesting and complimentary pieces to wear as an outfit. I sinched up my waist with a western concho belt and matched it with these western booties (which were way more comfortable than I thought they’d be)
