    TRAVEL • September 18, 2015

    When packing for a weekend getaway or any trip I’m all about packing complete outfits.

    Tomorrow I head to the desert along with thousands of other people to enjoy the Coachella music festival. I’ve gone the past 3 years for the parties and events but this year, I’m actually going to the festival as a guest of Nine West! I’m looking forward to lots of awesome, live music and fun, festival fashion. Today, I pack and get it together! When packing for a weekend getaway or any trip, I’m all about packing complete outfits. I figure out what I want to wear from head-to-toe and create looks to prevent over packing or not packing enough. First on my list are these Vinata oxfords and Elenny heels; both have a great festival feel and are completely different, which is perfect for pairing with both casual and more dressy looks. Second, are denim cut-offs, flowy dresses, lots of jewelry and of course faux gold tattoos. And finally, I “pack” a road trip playlist! Since we’re heading to Coachella I thought why not create a list from my favorite artists playing this weekend? Here’s what Amelia and I will be jamming to on the way to the desert…

    • Drake – Truffle Butter
    • The Weeknd – Earned It
    • AC/DC – Back in Black
    • Azealia Banks – Chasing Time
    • Interpol – Rest My Chemistry
    • Jack White – Seven Nation Army
    • The War on Drugs – Under The Pressure
