We hope you guys enjoyed our post from Day 1! We were slow to get out of bed the following day due to our aching backs and feet, so we started with an early breakfast at a cute French bakery and a little dip in the neighborhood pool. The weather was significantly cooler than Day 1, and there was a wind advisory, so we packed our scarves just in case. Little did we know that we would be attending #Dustchella several hours later (more on that below).
Sarah (top): Brixton Messer Hat in Black, Ray-Ban Aviators, Asos top, Urban Outfitters shorts, Vans sneakers (old, similar here), Kai Luxe MERMAID necklace, Lightning Bolt necklace
Emmy (bottom): Handmade flower crown, Urban Outfitters sunglasses, Urban Outfitters dress, Seychelles boots, Long Lost Jewelry Love Spike necklace, Vanessa Mooney Pretty Girls necklace
Sarah mixed a fun sneaker with edgy high-waisted shorts and a black fedora style hat, and Emmy dressed down her feminine frock with playful cut-out booties. We also kept our accessories simple, but wanted something extra special to stand out in the desert. Enter Flash Tattoos. These metallic, jewelry-inspired temporary tattoos are the perfect way to layer on the bling without worrying about bulk or heat. We bought the Zahra pack for the festival. You can see them featured on Emmy’s shoulder blade in the bottom left frame of the Outfit collage and Sarah’s wrist in her close-up picture on the Top collage. Definitely a must for any accessories lover!
Who We Saw
We were pretty accustomed to the layout of the grounds by Day 2, so we were ready for another day jam-packed with bands. We started off with a mellow set from the crazy-talented City and Colour, and kept our spots for the highly-anticipated set from Kid Cudi, which did not disappoint! We took a few breaks for food and water, and then came back for the Foster the People set, which is one of our favorite bands to see live. Then, we ran over to catch the end of Sleigh Bells set before Pharrell. We’re sure you read about all of the craziness that happened with his 5 GUEST PERFORMERS: Busta Rhymes, Nelly, Diplo, Snoop Dogg, AND Gwen Stefani! Due to the winds, they had to keep many of the jumbo screens lowered, which was a bummer because there were so many celebrities in one place. We have no idea what Pharrell will have in store for Weekend 2, so you have to go see him, Kid Cudi, and Foster the People in your Day 2 events.
One thing we did not foresee in our Coachella packing list was a bandanna. In the Day 1 EDM tents, we saw plenty of people with bandanas covering their faces, and we just figured they were making a fashion statement. Once we started having coughing fits, we realized that all of the jumping and dancing in one area creates a mini dust storm. So, for Day 2, we packed our scarf and bandanna planning to only use them in a tight-packed crowd. But the wind was so strong throughout the grounds, that there was dust flying all over our faces and into our eyes, nose, and mouth. Regular festival-goers said wind that strong was rare, but we ended up walking around looking like the picture above regardless. By the time we got a good look at each other in regular light, our faces were shaded by the light brown dust. Nothing another long shower couldn’t fix! But another tip would be to definitely pack a bandanna in your day bag – you never know how quickly the weather will change.
Check back tomorrow for our final day details!
