how to be at coachella (but not really)

hello and welcome to another episode of wishing i was super cool and famous! today, we will be talking about the most desired place to be at the moment: coachella.

yes, it’s true, i too want to be at coachella this year. you can now commence judging me.

of course, since i will not be graduating high school until 2019, my wishes will not be fulfilled for another four years. however, i thought of some ways i can have my own coachella at home this year!


STEP ONE: shades

everyone at coachella this year is wearing super cool sunglasses, so whether it’s underneath the warm(ish) sun or a bright light bulb, grab a pair of shades and throw them on. bonus points if you wear them inside! i have been loving these ones from old navy…

STEP TWO: accessorize

that’s right – i’m talking funky headbands, supercool hats, chunky bracelets, long necklaces, feathers, braids, tassels and/or trendy rings. layer them up and don’t be afraid to wear tons at once!


STEP THREE: clothes

as it is very hot in the colorado desert, we’re going for ripped shorts, lace tops and gorgeous dresses! however, it’s just barely warming here in the GTA so you may want to stick to wearing these indoors.


STEP FOUR: music

this year’s line up at coachella is amazing, but that doesn’t mean we can’t be just as amazing! blast your favourite jams and grab a hairbrush and a mirror. sing along to some awesome hits and don’t forget to dance along with them.

note to self: don’t forget to shout “coachella, how are you guys feeling right now?” every so often.


STEP FIVE: friends

to really create the perfect ambiance, persuade some of your friends to dress up along with you! if you want, take some cute pictures and post them online – when people tell you that you aren’t ACTUALLY at coachella, continue to insist you are, and don’t think anything else otherwise. thanks to the gorgeous girl on the right for going along with my crazy requests (you can find her on youtube and instagram @hijabininjas)!
