This year we were brave enough to do both weekends of Coachella! After some confusing and cold desert rain it was decided that we needed a Coachella re–do… and so we headed out for the extreme 106 degrees of heat. The intense heat kept us mostly in the shade of palm trees or in the pool. You don’t exactly go tanning in these conditions. I found two amazing houses for each weekend. It is one of those things I am known for. When I travel (especially in groups) I find it much better to rent a home rather than a hotel room. You also save money (don’t let these photos of amazingness fool you)! I don’t know about you, but I would much rather sit by my own pool than fight the early bird crowd at a hotel for a pool cabana. No, thank you.
Have to say this wasn’t my favorite Coachella line-up but there were some great standouts. St. Vincent was definitely a festival favorite. While the men in the crowd nearly drooled while she played her guitar, I was fascinated by her stage presence alone. Annie Clark will be one to watch for decades. Favorite stage quote “Like medically speaking are you OK?” she asked us concerned for her fans well being and health after a day in crippling hotness.
The second weekend we traveled around with our good friend, Luke Wooden, who was shooting ‘Coachella Style’ for Teen Vogue. I opted for simple outfits each day. Nothing scares me more than a lot of the over the top festival fashion you see on that field. Brands I wore: J Brand, Siwy Denim, Madewell (boots), and LNA (obviously). I also got a lot of questions about my black studded bag . I got it at OAK NYC on Bond Street last year. It’s by kmrii.
Coachella will always be one of my favorite times of the year. It has, and will continue to be, my April desert destination.
