Coachella 2016


Coachella has become a bit of a spectacle in recent years but that doesn't mean it's not still a great time. Somehow despite the heat, the dust storms, and the crowds, tickets continue to sell out every year before the lineup is even announced. It's also the top-grossing music festival in the world which is saying something. This year, I attended Weekend 2 which is supposedly more relaxed, though I still thought it was pretty darn packed. My fiancé and I weren't in the mood to brave the heat or the mobs so we relaxed in our air-conditioned rental until late-afternoon before heading to the festival each day and found ourselves unwilling to brave the tents (especially the crush of people inside and around the Sahara Tent after a couple of our friends got pick-pocketed there the first night). Instead, we mostly just hung out by the main stages after dusk where there was a lot of open space. FYI, that's where Alessandra Ambrosio likes to hang out, too. We saw her dancing with her daughter there and they were so cute. Didn't get to see all of the acts we wanted to see but we still had a great time and experience overall. The thing about Coachella is that no matter how you feel about the line-up, there's bound to be a set or two that will blow your mind and make your weekend. For me, that was probably Zedd! I also enjoyed catching snippets of amazing performances by artists I previously hadn't heard of like Lemaitre and Alessia Cara (yeah yeah, what do I, live under a rock??)


Playsuit, Spell Designs. Sandals, Skechers. Fringed crossbody, Rebecca Minkoff. Wool hat, H&M.


Tank top dress, Free People. Belt, Loft. Knit bucket bag, Boohoo. Suede ankle boots, Zara. Wool hat, H&M.


Navy gauze top, Free People. Denim shorts, One Teaspooon. Knit bucket bag, Boohoo.



THE FOOD


Pinches tacos...this was pretty good. I would've rather have had Mexicali but it was a trek so I made do with Pinches in a pinch...hehe.


You know how much I love my fried chicken sandwiches from Free Range LA! Somehow, it tasted even better in the desert.


Anyone who goes to Coachella needs to try the Spicy Pie! Although I'm not personally a big fan of spicy pizza, I'll admit it's pretty good and more importantly, it's a Coachella tradition!
