Coachella is almost here! Hopefully by now if you’ve got your wristband, accommodations and a ride. But what else are you taking with you? You’ll be in the desert for at least three days and you’ll want to make sure you’re prepared. Here’s my Coachella packing list to make sure you bring everything you absolutely need and more:
Unless you don’t really care about fashion, make sure you pack your crop tops, fringe boots and distressed denim. No matter how hot you look, you also want to make sure you’re comfortable, because it’s going to get hot out there!
8 pairs of underwear (2 for every day that you’ll be there, I like to sleep in clean underwear)
1 rain jacket/poncho
1 sweater/jacket (for when it gets cold at night)
1 pair of pants to sleep in
Sophia Embroidered Romper by Free People $148
Make sure these are comfortable since you will be walking in them for up to 12 hours a day. Don’t bring new shoes that have not been broken into yet!
1 pair of sandals
1 pair of flip flops
1 pair of boots
The Kayla Sandal by Naot $135
The Melissa Tube Sandal x Jeremy Scott $98
You don’t want to be carrying too much with you throughout the day. A backpack or a cross body bag is perfect to keep your hands free. A small purse or wallet with all your essentials should be all you need.
Backpack or crossbody bag
Bandana (for the dust)
Just Fab Tripp Bag in Cognac $43 (VIP Price)
It’s going to be hot and dusty out there so here’s a list of things that will help you stay clean. Take the hand sanitizer and a small bag of baby wipes with you everywhere, just in case.
Wipes (Baby wipes, facial wipes, anything to clean anything)
First Aid Kit
Burt’s Bees Facial Cleansing Towelettes $6
Besides your phone, that’s with you at all times to capture all your special social media moments, here’s what else you’ll need to make sure you have enough power for all your devices.
Mini flashlight or head lamp
MoPower Portable Charger $11
Here’s a few other things that can make your weekend more enjoyable.
Food & Water
Refillable water bottle (non-metal)
If you’ve never camped before, it’s best to do a “practice” run before you go. You should know how to set up your tent and make sure you have all your pieces so you don’t get into an annoying situation when you’re already in the middle of the desert.
L.L. Bean Northwoods 6-Person Cabin Tent $400
