Alas, festival season is back.

Here's to two weekends filled with music, arts, and fashion.

Although April is known to bring showers of rain, festival go-ers can expect heat, sun, sand, and chilly nights for the next two weeks. For those of you who don't know, Coachella is a music and arts festival that happens once a year for two weekends. Having been twice now, I can say with ease that each year I go I fall more in love with the desert. 

The weather during the festival varies from scorching hot and dry to chilly and breezy at night. While flower crowns, golden tats, and flowy dresses tend to take over the fashion scene at the festival, it doesn't hurt to turn to the darker side. This all-black outfit focuses on accessories and details. Juxtaposing the feminine features of lace and heels, I finished the outfit off with biker gloves and a studded pouch. 

I'm so obsessed with this pouch from Jungle Tribe. They are so versatile and convenient to wear for crowded events. You can wear them around your waist, leg, as a backpack, cross-back, shoulder bag, etc.

This is the first look in my Coachella 2016 lookbook, so stay tuned for more!
