What To Wear For a Desert Road Trip

Hey, guys! If you follow me on IG: @_jasminvanessa you might have seen that I went on a weekend getaway to Joshua Tree National Park, a couple of weeks ago.

Considering Coachella season is upon us, I thought I would share some looks I brought along with me to the desert.

Packing for the desert presents a specific set of challenges… during the day it can be either windy as hell or dry AF. During the night, prepare to experience almost freezing temps, ha!

Luckily, you can pull off a range of your favorite outfits as long as you come prepared!

*I have also attached the links of where you can find these items*

What to pack:

Fedora Hats & lots of em! Macy’s


Sunnies!! H&M


One thick coat for the frigid nights! ZARA



Denim – I’m a sucker for Wide-Leg Jeans. Higher waist and wide, flowing denim – screams desert boho vibes. ZARA

Comfortable booties for the long trails and rough terrain. Forever 21


Long/short sleeve crop tops for the winds but also #fashion. Forever 21

Sheer Embroidered LongLine Kimonos. Forever 21




Props for the aesthetics. I picked up flowers, some pretty fruit (not pictured) and my Polaroid camera!


And of course, you can’t forget the Long Sleeve Dresses with Ruffle Trims! Forever 21

Hope you find inspo in some of these looks! Xo




How to survive Coachella sans Party Favors

If you’re a Millennial, chances are, you’ve attended some sort of music festival. And if you haven’t, you should, because they are basically euphoric wonderlands. Although, the cost of an event adds up, you can not put a price tag on complete and utter happiness, boo! I’ve legit cried happy tears in the middle of sets (I know, dramatic.) But honestly, aside from traveling, festivals are where I’ve felt the most alive. There is this indescribable rush of adrenaline that takes over your body and you just become one with the crowd and the music.







This topic may be taboo to some, but I’ve heard time and time again that people only enjoy festival culture because of the party favors, (look it up on Urban Dictionary if you don’t get the reference) but that’s not always the case.

I’ve chosen to abstain from the goodies, because I tweak TF out on just caffeine…so to prevent any hot messes, I’d rather not indulge. Alls to say, you can still have goood vibezzz, sober-ishhh.

Sober at a music festival…WHATTT, you don’t say? Welllllll, not exactly. The pregame and beer gardens keep me going. Your girl just gotta’ stay hydrated (you know what I’m shhhaying) and she good! Oh, and lots of sleep & water.

Although I don’t think that drugs define festival culture, I do believe, there is this societal pressure to dabble. But as with all things, to each his own and if it works for you, God bless! But all I’m saying is it can be done without it and my experiences have been just as magical 🙂

Either way, it is undeniable how infectious the good vibes are. I’ve literally met some of my closest friends at festivals. I mean, there are hundreds of thousands of people, together in one place, all looking to get litty. Whether you’re about to pass out or sober Sally, you are guaranteed an experience of a lifetime. I know I can’t wait to be frolicking around in the desert!
