Festival style is having a serious moment right now and we couldn’t help but get caught up in it. Since we were in the desert anyway for our family reunion, we decided to indulge in the full-on hippie-chic side of the craze. That’s what Coachalla is known for, after all, and we could practically smell the clouds of dust, tobacco and other substances wafting over from the next valley.
For the outfits below, we mixed a few pieces we already owned with some of our favorite thrifted finds. Comfort is always a factor for festivals, so we kept our eyes out for soft fabrics in flowing silhouettes.
The metallic tattoos we used are called Hot Jewels – they’re like Flash Tats, but you can get them at your local Walgreens drugstore for $9.99 a pack.
Crop top – $3 at Goodwill (full price equivalent $20)
Patterned skirt – $5 at Goodwill (similar $20)
Scarf – $7 at H&M (similar)
Gladiator sandals – $65 at Macy’s (full price equivalent $60)
Necklaces – H&M and made by Devon
Every spring, our mom’s side of the family has a reunion in the Mojave Desert in Southern California. It’s a wonderful weekend for catching up with relatives, barbecuing by the pool and picnicking in Joshua Tree National park.
This year the reunion happened to coincide with the second weekend of the Coachella music festival, taking place just one valley over in Indio. While we didn’t shell out for tickets this year, we were inspired to do a post about thrifted festival fashion.
So after a day of bouldering and finding hidden caves in Joshua Tree, we slapped on some makeup and some fringe to capture the hippie-chic outfits below.
