25 days and I'll be experiencing Coachella for the first time ever! I can't believe we are less than a month away from Coachella, it seems like yesterday Esmirna was stressing the heck out just to buy VIP tix during the first round of sales back in July.
I am MORE than ready for Coachella; I made the choice of going all out for the event versus using that money to travel somewhere else, and I am confident that the outcome will surpass any trip in mind. Oh, before I forget...we did have this SICK and I mean (SICKKKKKK) reservation at the Alcazar in Palm Springs. We got a nice suite for about $1,100 (there goes all my Amex Points).
A close friend of mine from back home recently got her own place in Indio, and invited us to stay with her during the festival! Best of all, her place is 5 minutes away from THE festival. Since we're not going to really enjoy the hotel (because we plan to spend the entire time at Coachella, of course), I went ahead and cancelled our reservation, got my money back, and ran with it as fast as I could...
Here's an outfit inspired by the festival: a contrast of solid colors with bold prints. The folks from Members Only sent me this jacket and I knew it would serve as a staple piece during Spring, I mean look at the print! Taking advantage of the "cool" weather, a lightweight sweater from Acne Studios helps balance and offset the bright pink shorts from Aeropostale along with these Black and Grey Puma sneakers. The finishing touches: a pair of shades by Dior and a watch from Christian Paul Watches.
