Let’s pretend, for a second, that you haven’t been thinking about what’s going to be in the contents of you Coachella travel bag for the past month (or more). But for the rest of us…the procrastinators, the boho style-aficionados, the “if only I were going” dreamers…here’s a sneak peek into what’s in my festival bag. Check back Friday for outfit #1, plus how you can WIN a piece from the bag every day this weekend!
Read on for the packing list…
IN THE BAG:
SWIM: if nothing else, make sure this makes it in the bag. This insanely fun one piece doubles as a top. An added bonus – heart tan lines.

TANKS: fun graphics are a plus.

CUT-OFF SHORTS: no doy.

SUNDRESS: you can count on the sun making an appearance, so pack a sun dress.

BOOTS: sandals are great…until you decide that front and center is the place to be – at which time, they aren’t so great.

SANDALS: (see note above)…for all other times, including pool time, of which you will be clocking in more than a few hours of.

SOCKS: for the sake of your carpool buddies, please bring them. And wear them. These printed ones add a little extra flair.

HAT: when it comes to brims, the bigger the better for the desert sunshine.

BAG: a cross-body bag, small backpack or fanny pack is ideal. Anything else will bring down your moves, as well as impede your ability to push through to the front.

SHADES: you’ll be bummed if you forget them. I’m loving these sunnies from Quay…ultra festive. An added bonus – they’re only $40, so if you loose them, your weekend won’t be completely ruined (can’t say the same for your ensemble though).
