Coachella Recap

So this is awkward. I said I was going to Coachella, and then I never blogged again. I really hope no one thought I died at Coachella. I definitely didn't die, I just came back really tired.

On the final night of Coachella, there was a dust storm. I was congested for a week [and sneezing desert dust], then came down with a full on head cold that knocked me into bed-rest, then the stomach flu. So here I am like 10 years later giving you my irrelevant Coachella recap. However, I made these cute little collages on the flight home and would be so sad if I never shared them. As many of you know, I went with Lacoste Home on behalf of Rue Magazine. Here's what happened:

1. A bunch of cute gators ready to party. // 2. Sunset at the festival. // 3. Alexa Chung DJing [and is SO PRETTY IN PERSON I literally cannot even handle it].

4. Oh, just hanging out with my BFF Brad Goreski, NO BIG DEAL. // 5. Lounging in the shade. // 6. Meeting my favorite gal ever [pinch me moment], the one and only Man Repeller

7. Danny Masterson aka DJ Mom Jeans. // 8. Elijah Wood... or is it Tim?? [hint: it's Elijah] // 9. Saying farewell to the final night. 

To read more about the party, head over to Rue Daily for my recap. 

The festival itself was magical. Band of Horses was the best live act I've seen in awhile, and I fulfilled a lifelong dream of seeing The Postal Service. Of course- I also have to give credit to the star of my Spotify playlist, Father John Misty, for putting on an INCREDIBLE performance as usual. 

Lastly, I couldn't leave you without a few outfit shots. Here is what I wore:

Outfit 1: jacket Old Navy [old] // top Zara [old] // shorts Anthropologie // necklace Forever21 [old] // sunnies Free People // headband Handmade 
Outfit 2: t-shirt dress Express [old] // belt Anthropologie // sunnies Free People // necklace Forever21
Outfit 3: dress Anthropologie [old] // sunnies Free People // floral headband Cult Gaia
Outfit 4: jacket Old Navy [old] // top H&M [old] // shorts Anthropologie // bag Steve Madden [old] // floral headband Cult Gaia

My style theory at Coachella was super easy-going. In hindsight [and after seeing THIS street style image], I sort of wish I put in more effort. However, it was fun to dig into the archives of my closet and dig out some festival worthy gear. I am already counting down the days until next year...

As always, thank you for being patient with me while I took a little blogging break. I can't wait to get back into the swing of things around here! So, on that note... I'll see you tomorrow! 


  1. You are so adorable! I am so jealous that you met Elijah Wood! Looks like you had a great time :)
