coachella essentials

coachella essentials neutrogena sunblock, evian spray, frizz-ease hairspray, tissues, eye drops, blotting papers from daiso in japantown, campus notebook from japantown, bobby pins, mac lipstick in honeylove, neutrogena sunblock stick, inhaler, ray ban wayfarers, neutrogena lip moisturizer (not pictured: travel deodorant, wet wipes, and too many allergy meds lol)

What I'll be carrying in my bag at Coachella. I'm currently in LA visiting family and tonight Ill be in Palm Springs! I've never been to Coachella (and I'm a Socal natice, ergh) so I'm pretty excited. I had a really bad allergy attack today and my right eye was swollen shut at some point but thankfully I'm better just in time. If anyone recognizes me don't be alarmed if I seem really out of it since I'll be pretty heavily medicated (jk its non-drowsy prescription stuff). Whatever, as long as I get to see Duran Duran and DFA 1979 I'll be fine.

in my bag

I was able to fit all of my stuff in my One Language tote (that thing is HUGE seriously) but I can't tell if I underpacked or not. I brought a mix of things with me: crochet one piece + vintage floral maxi + straw bucket bag, vintage floral romper, vintage light collared shirt + Theory shorts + H&M x Marimekko swimsuit, Gap denim jacket + T by Alex Wang striped top + Current Elliott pencil skirt, and the rest of my toiletries. Oh, and a floppy hat!

I'll probably be posting pictures as I take them over at my tumblr so go look!

Your packing is so perfectly minimalist. You're gonna make every other girl at Coachella feel like a try-hard!

Chloe said...

I seriously wish I could pack as efficiently as you did! Sadly, I'm one of those "everything but the kitchen sink" kind of gals.

Have fun at Coachelllllla! :)

Coachella sounds amazing, have a great time!

Anna said...

Ok, so I don't know what the accomodations are like at Coachella (do you sleep in a tent like Roskilde or Glasto?) but I am seriously jealous if you are allowed to bring stuff like hairspray and eyedrops! In Sweden you can't bring jack shit, not even perfume, cos they search your bags and frisk (frisc?) you every time you enter the festival area. I had to sneak in dry shampoo, stuffed down my pants, at a festival last year. I mean come on! How are you supposed to be "festival chic" if you can't bring your toiletries?

Something you've misplaced. said...


Lulu B said...

That is so good packing skills right there! Can i borrow you xx :o)

Jess said...

Completely in love with your black boots!
Have a wonderful time, looking forward to seeing some photos :) xo

Sarah said...

You seem prepared to me, i love the vintage floral maxi. Have a wonderful time in coachella!

The Fancy Teacup said...

That's so awesome that you fit everything in one tote, I love being a light packer. (But yes, I usually do feel like I forgot something.) That H&M x Marimekko swimsuit is super cute. Hope the allergies don't get to you, and have a total blast!
much love.

Jessie said...

You are soooooo insanely lucky to have been front row at that Arcade Fire concert. I wasn't lucky enough to snag tickets this year so I had to watch it on their youtube live page. I saw the Arcade Fire show on youtube with full blast audio and it was AMAZING. I could only imagine how it must have been like to be there live and that close to the stage!

Eva said...

What a great post! Im loving your Coachella outfits.
You've got a great style and blog xoxo
