Coachella, Coachella, Coachella! After months of planning we’re mere days away! This week it’s been all about the packing experience, which believe me has not been easy! I envy everyone that lives in LA and can drive their wardrobes to Palm Springs. It’s borderline embarrassing to roll up in an over-sized suitcase, plus carry-on luggage (especially since normally I’m a light packer and never check bags), but what can be done, it’s on this season!

When packing I like to mix my personal style into the classic music festival trends which is all about fringe, tribal prints, high-waisted shorts, kimonos and generally anything that can be classified as boho. It’s a great time to incorporate vintage pieces and accessories play a huge role. The thing everyone forgets is you’re on your feet all day so comfort is key, which is why I generally pack flats and comfortable wedges. It’s also great to have a pair of converse or booties since it does get chilly at night. Plus the whole athleisure trend (think sneakers with skirts) taking looks from the pool house to street style — ahem Coachella style, you’re going to want a pair (just wait until you see the patterned Converse I packed, I found them in the DSW sale section for $35!).  DSW is amazing place to shop for shoes since they have an extensive assortment of designer and contemporary brands at discounted prices. All of the shoes I picked were under $50! And every possible music festival style is there. From Converse and printed wedges to gladiator flats, laser-cut sandals and booties, it’s incredibly convenient for a one stop shop — plus their sale section always sucks me (they have the best deals!).
