Coachella 2017 was one for the books. It was, astoundingly enough, my ninth Coachella in a row. You'd think I'd be tired of it by now, but luckily with my job, I get access to cool events that help me escape the polo fields when the festival gets a little too overwhelming.
Also, a point to note: I actually had my first laser treatment for tattoo removal right before the festival, and I had no idea how hard it would be to dress with my ribs, stomach, and upper thigh covered! That was a big style challenge all last week. I'll tell you more about the tattoo removal process as we progress.
Here's a shoppable list of all my Coachella outfits! Links are below each look. :)
This was the look before all looks. I picked this top out (and immediately snapped it) at Revolve Social House. They invited me in to help prep my wardrobe for the festival. I love the billowy sleeve/off-the-shoulder trend combo making its way into spring attire.
My look on the way to the Guess house (is it that obvious?). I was stuck in the worst traffic driving to Palm Springs on Thursday. Normally, the drive would be an easy hour and a half--this drive took four and a half hours. I was about to go insane, and as soon as I saw the windmills (a sure sign of entering Palm Springs), I had to hop out of the car to stretch and shoot. I actually wouldn't recommend shooting here, though...I should have known, given the windmills, but these were probably the strongest winds I'd ever experienced. This was ONE good photo out of, like, 50.
Day One's daytime look. I didn't think it was *that* amazing because I didn't pack the right things for this weekend, but I got a surprising number of compliments on it! Someone even called me Lydia Deetz, color me honored. I stuck with my dark tendencies and paired a gothy upper half with some loose printed pants.
Day One's nighttime look. I got in the festival pretty late, so there was no daylight to shoot in. The only photo I have of it is in this very green setting (from my really fun job with Absolut), but you can see it clearer in the links below.
Day Two's daytime look. This was my favorite by far, and the one least like me, haha. Even Ellen was like, "Wow, you look so...NICE." It's so boho but I love it! I especially loved rocking my handmade bag I got on my Morocco trip. I can see myself wearing more neutral shades like these in the future.
Day Two's nighttime look. By now I'm sure you get that nighttime looks are more litty and more comfortable. I actually got gifted this entire outfit the day prior at a party's gifting suite. The owners of the company were so kind and giving and I was touched when they said they'd been following me for years. I learned the hard way that nighttime would be extremely windy, so this longline bomber was so clutch.

Day Three. At this point, I'm so exhausted from this weekend's festivities and I give my wristband away halfway through the day so I can chill at Revolve's party. When it ended at 7, my friends and I went home to the Guess house and made fish tacos. I think we ended the weekend right.
