W E A R I N G / Coachella Outfit Ideas

Coachella is here! I’m pretty jealous everyone on the face of this earth is going except me, but I’m too busy nowadays to miss 3 whole days of life. Tiara, on the other hand, is currently living life at the infamous festival. One of the greatest reasons I love Coachella, and any music festival, are the outfits and fashion inspirations. Since there is still another week of Coachella, it’s not too late to post these Coachella Outfit Ideas!

Crop Top + Maxi Skirt + Floral Headband
Not a big fan of the legs?A maxi skirt is the perfect fix. Great if you’re going the more conservative route.

Headband - Laura’s Boutique | Top - DIY | Skirt - Foreign Exchange / Similar | Shoes - N.Y.L.A. / Similar

Bralette + Mesh / Bralette + Jacket
You’ll often see girls wearing bralettes to these music festivals, especially ones in CA since it’s 100 degrees out. If you’re not the bold type to just wear a bralette by itself, then wearing it underneathe another top (but still noticeable) is still really cute!
Hat - Fitted Hawaii Camo 5 Panel | Mesh Dress - UNIF / Similar | Shorts - American Apparel | Bralette - Luxe + Lexie
Flower Crown - DIY | Jacket - Random Store / Similar | Shorts - DTLA / Similar | Shoes - Impo / Similar

Kimono + Corset + Shorts
Kimono covers are really popular this season! This outfit is probably in every girl’s suitcase for Coachella this weekend.

Kimono - Thrifted / Similar | Corset - DTLA / Similar | Shorts - Thrifted / Similar | Shoes - N.Y.L.A. / Similar

Arm Band - Gift from my friend Lyna | Flowers - Mini flowers from fake flower bouquets

Overalls + Flannel + Fedora If I went to Coachella this year, I would’ve totally packed this outfit. It has all my favorites. I love fedoras, I love overalls, and I can’t live without flannels.

Overalls - UNIF | Flannel - Daddy’s / Similar | Hat - Fedora from DTLA & DIY Spiked / Similar

Enjoy & be safe all you Coachellies!

DIY / Flower Halo

It’s that weekend that everyone has been prepping for..Coachella! Everyone except for me of course, not that I really want to anyways. But a number of my friends and my sister will be going, which is why I will be posting Coachella inspired DIYs and outfits over the next two weeks! What better way to start off than a DIY Flower Halo?

Who doesn’t wear some sort of flower crown or halo to a festival? It’s a given accessory for outfits. They may be everywhere, but I still think they’re absolutely adorable!

Hot Glue Gun
Thick Wire
Wire Cutters
Floral Tape
Fake flowers

1) Measure your head with the wire twice so that there is double wire for the crown.
2) Tightly wrap the floral tape around the wires to create one base. This was the first time I have ever used floral tape, so I had no idea it wasn’t as sticky as tape..
3) Separate the flower heads from the stems and snip off the extra stem stub attached to the bottom of the head. You will need a flat surface to glue the wire base to.
4) Arrange your blossoms in the desired order around your wire base.
5) Add hot glue to the bottom of the flower head and carefully (and quickly so the glue doesn’t dry) place onto the wire base. Hold in place for 10-15 seconds. Once the flower is glued in place, add another layer of hot glue around the base and flower to secure the flower. Finish with the rest of the flowers, and you’re done!
6) Keep your halo as is, or go an extra step to make the inside just as pretty as the outside! Clip single leaves from the fake flower bouquets.
7) Add hot glue down the middle of the leaf. Place the leaf along the inside brim of your halo. Make sure the middle of the leaf is placed on the inside of the wire base. The leaves add an extra cushion and feels better on the head :)

Enjoy Coachellie lovers!
