Must-Have Items to Pack for Coachella

I am heading out to the desert for my first Coachella festival this weekend (woot!), so I thought I’d share a few items I‘m packing! addition to the floppy hat, flower crown, high-waisted shorts, and crop tops, I mean.   Duh.

Festival Goods:

Clockwise, from top left.

Shoes - These cute little booties were cheap at Charlotte Russe, so if they get stepped on and dirty, I won’t be sad.  It will be hot, but I am opting for closed toe shoes, to minimize little piggies getting stepped on and covered in dirt. Break in your new shoes a couple days before, so you don't get insta-blisters Day 1.

Phone Charger -  There are charging stations there, but I thought something battery powered might be good to have on hand.  Those phone cases that are a built in battery charger are like $99, but Walmart had these portable, battery operated USB port phone chargers for $22! Win!

Water Bottle - There are filtered water fountain stations as per, so I got this snazzy little water bottle that folds up flat, and then stands up when filled with water. You can bring in empty, reusable water bottles, just not your own water. Boom.  Done!

Hand Wipes & Tissues -  I'll be throwing a travel pack of tissues and wet wipes into my bag, for sure.  Porta-Potties, bring it on! ;)

Scarf / Thin Blanket - A thicker material, wide width scarf, or pashmina, can double as both a wrap when it gets cold later, or as a blanket to sit on. And it folds up way smaller than a towel or real blanket, or you can even tie it onto your bag or belt loop. Win.

Bag - I wanted a bigger crossbody bag for daytime so I can keep a water bottle, sweater, and such, without having an overstuffed smaller bag or fanny pack. This one from Target was cute, cheap, lightweight, and fit the bill!

All right, Coachella.  Let's DO THIS!!!

I leave you with some tunes!
