Festival Fun… experience Coachella with me!

View gallery

WHAT TO WEAR:

  • Make a chic, individual fashion statement – Coachella festival has really evolved in terms of fashion over the past 5 years that I have been going so have fun with your personal style
  • Total look; denim anything; flowing pieces; cool fabrics; bold prints; lace; embroidered details and color!
  • Bring a jacket as the desert gets cold at night and I always love these pieces to complete a look as the sun goes down – the crazier the better; this year I opted for metallics like this one… here
  • Your dancing shoes – boots and sneakers are always best as you want to be comfortable but look great at the same time!
  • Accessorize without overdoing it – sunglasses and hats are a must to shade the heat and always bring a bandana to prevent breathing in too much dust from the wind, which can get bad at Coachella!
  • Backpacks (not too big) are always a great solution for getting around all day long and dancing the night away!
  • A great moisturizer and sunscreen as the desert is so dry, and don’t forget to drink lots of water to stay hydrated, I love tinted CC creams like this one… here

WHAT TO DO:

  • Make sure you visit the town of Palm Springs as it has amazing mid-century modern architecture and amazing desert scenery, and my favorite – lots of palm trees!
  • Rent a car through here and register for discounted car insurance here
  • Plan your party and get organized – don’t miss your favorite band or DJ because you are trying to find your friends or stuck in traffic!
  • Check out the cool art installations that change every year and are always so inspiring, and are great for photos…
  • Go on the ferris wheel – this is iconic Coachella and has an amazing view, especially at sunset!

WHERE TO HANG:

  • Poolside at any of the many Coachella day events at hotels and gorgeous private estates – I was one of the lucky guests of VFiles & Mountain Dew this year with a live performance by G Eazy which I streamed live from my Instagram!
  • Grab an iced coffee or juice and chill with friends at the Ace Hotel!
  • Sunset cocktails at the Mini Bar or in the lobby lounge at The Parker Hotel
  • Chill out in the Rose Garden at Coachella with a craft cocktail and listen to the artists in the Sahara tent – this year I loved DJ Khaled and Empire of the Sun!

WHERE TO EAT:

  • From any of the awesome, creative food vendors at Coachella – you can always recharge with a fancy chicken sandwich
  • Birba – has great pizza and live music in the evening
  • Eight4nine – lovely cocktails and food with fun décor
  • The Edge Steakhouse – most amazing food and view!!!
  • Workshop Kitchen & Bar – cool vibe and great cocktails!

WHERE TO STAY:

  • Korakia Pensione – for a rustic but super chic experience…
  • The Parker – old school Palm Springs glamor, luxury and very private bungalow experience…
  • The Avalon – for a fun pool scene and incredible mountain view!
  • The Ritz Carlton – for incredible luxury, service and a ‘never want to leave’ experience…
  • J.W. Marriott – as a global supporter of these hotels they never disappoint and this property is amazing!

Would love to hear your thoughts!
