We all know Coachella marks the beginning of every music and fashion lover’s favorite time of the year, festival season! Unfortunately, Coachella takes place on the coast opposite of where I and the other 8.5 million New Yorkers are. Aside from stalking the snapchat stories and plethora of Instagram posts, I was able to channel the same carefree festival vibes by spending Coachella day 3 in Greenwich Village.
I started my day off by oh so casually running into Nick Jonas while crossing the street. Looks like there are actually celebrities who weren’t at Coachella! Who knew!? Since it was my best friend’s birthday we decided to do brunch on the streets of Soho. After enjoying salmon eggs benedict, we soaked in the sun rays and walked around the streets. While exploring we stumbled upon this collage of pop art posters. What blogger can resist a photoshoot in front of an intriguing background like this one?
Lets be real, us here on the East Coast were thrilled to once against experience the 70 degree weather Mother Nature blessed us with on Sunday. It might not be the 90 degree heat waves that festivalgoers are experiencing, but hey, it’s close enough, right? I thought it was the perfect occasion to break out the new t-shirt I bought from Aritzia a few weeks back. I didn’t realize it would take weeks for spring weather to finally return to us, causing this shirt to be sitting in its shopping bag for too long. This shirt is casual yet still gives me a chance to show off my favorite bralettes that all us girls know we buy way too many of.
Is a Coachella-inspired outfit really complete without some coin jewelry and fringed accessories? Nope. I added this necklace for a bohemian flair that was still appropriate for brunch and shopping on a typical Sunday. However, if you’re going to a festival, the more the better! Can you really achieve that full Vanessa Hudgens look if you don’t pile on the jewelry?
Not only is this backpack carefree and cute, but it is extremely functional for those fashion bloggers/students/interns on the go. I hate having to lug my laptop, camera, wallet, and a book around in a purse when I am running from place to place. I am able to easily carry all of the things I need without putting stress on my shoulders. This doesn’t sound too glamorous but I promise that backpacks are a lifesaver, and now they are on-trend too!
With Coachella weekend 1 being finished, we can all look forward to the looks that weekend 2 has in store. Weekend 1 has shown bloggers wearing the typical festival trends such as fringe, coin jewelry, crochet clothing pieces, and cowboy boots. It has also given us some ideas on how to style popular spring pieces such as bandanas, chokers, and monokinis for the music festivals that we will be hitting up later this spring and summer. Until weekend 2…
