This week style bloggers everywhere typed up their thoughts and posted images of weekend one in the sunny Coachella Valley. I’ve become convinced they do this just to add to my already-overflowing-jealousy, but what do I know? So while they spent their time immersed in the sounds of Flume and Flosstradamus (please sense my bitterness), every blogger in Indio, California also managed to squeeze in some time to document get-ups that have made this event far more than just a music festival. Is it just me or has Coachella become one of the country’s biggest fashion events? While the infamous Coachella boho-chic isn’t my traditional go-to, I’ve weeded through the thousands of Coachella posts and found among them three that have me packing my bags for the desert.
One of the shoots we did in Vancouver was of Katie’s apartment… err, living room… OK, so it was really just her couch. Regardless, we walked in looking for at-home casual fashion inspiration (which we got in spades), and walked out with a laundry list full of home needs – those Mongolian lamb pillows and agate coasters for starters – and an expanded reading list.
A few week’s ago Katie gave a peek into her hulking bag. And I say hulking because girl carries around EVERYTHING she might ever need (she wasn’t kidding when she says we call her the bag lady). Thinking it might be worth showcasing what carryalls look like on the other side of the proverbial pond (OK, so really just the other side of the desk), I put together a little somethin’, somethin’ with everything I carry around on a daily basis.
