What to Wear to Coachella: LA Grunge

ALL-AMERICAN. Don't I look patriotic? While my heart and mind are drifting in the direction of Indio, CA for Coachella, my body is firmly planted in the Midwest where spring, winter, and summer are all happening a few times every day. This is something I'd wear to Coachella: something DIY for a conversation point, comfy and breathable, and not baring too much skin. Of course while everyone else is decked out in a sea of floral headbands, dreamy sundresses, sunnies bigger than one's face, this LA/grunge style would stand out. Last year I opted for giant floppy hats, showing more midriff, and boho pieces for my pretend Coachella. This year I'll be going to Lollapalooza in August and living the music festival experience to the fullest.

Last weekend was blazing hot and summer-esque. Sometimes being studious and going out seem like antonyms, but I still exercise the right to dress like I have somewhere more exciting to be ;) I threw on my lightweight DIY inkblot top and kept my bum and head warm inside a potentially chilly library with my lumpy beanie and sturdy longer shorts. Ankle boots are standard for year round, no explanation needed. Currently: brewing hazelnut coffee, listening to the "Eternal Spring" playlist, studying lungs vacuuming.

I like this simple/comfy look! I think a Tee and hat are a great concert staple...I'd love to wear something lacey and bohemian. I can relate..I'm Chicago and the weather is so painful right now..I'm ready for Spring to officially arrive!

Coachella is seriously inspiring - I've never gone, but the fashion posts I see about it are fantastic! I love the casual cool boho vibe it emanates. Great beanie and cool boots girl.
Also, your Star Wars meets Catwoman comment made my day. Haha, can you just come up with my outfit post titles? :)

Oh, thank you for your attention to the previous posts. Some weeks I have sheer inspiration and other weeks I just try to do my best. It is funny how that works out but when someone follows me and says something kind, I can't help trying to continue posting some type of inspiration for them, sort of. hahahaha
