Coachillin: Day 1

Ahhh Coachella. The 2 weekends  of the year music lovers live for and those who can’t make it, love to hate. From instagram crashing to twitter bombarded with #coachella tweets, I think it’s safe to say that this festival is definitely trending. And yours truly was able to make it down to the Indio valley and partake in all the madness. I’ll be breaking down the 3 days of some of the best times I’ve had in my life. Here we go!

Stepping off the shuttle bus onto the festival grounds was a little surreal, not gonna lie. You hear about this place called Coachella for years but never actually think it could be reality…until it is. And it did not disappoint. With 2 main stages, 4 tents, art installations, food trucks, ferris wheels, and so much more! There was a lot to take in and I don’t think we even got the chance to see everything while we were there.

Day 1 was pretty jam packed music wise from A$AP Ferg, Zedd, HAIM, Ellie Goulding, Bastille, Outkast…it was hard to squeeze them all in! One of my favourite performances of the day was probably Bastille. Not only is the lead singer a major babe, but he has such an amazing voice. And now whenever I listen to their album I’m transported back to that tent filled with hundreds of people singing in unison…I get chills! Another fav of mine was Zedd. I never understood the whole EDM movement until I stepped into the Sahara tent. The music, lights, and dancing…it’s on another level!

I was a little to excited the first day and kind of forgot to take outfit pics, oops! But in a nutshell I kind of went for the whole less is more vibe thanks to the scorching heat. And no, I’m not complaining…the warm weather was fabulous! I stayed bright and white with a tropical crop top and some cut of white shorts. I went for some simple sandals but my feet definitely paid for it seeing as I could barely walk the next morning. Rookie mistake! I opted for comfort the rest of the weekend.
