Coachella is all about breaking your fashion rules and letting loose for three consecutive days in the hot Californian desert. While planning this year’s trip I had three things in mind; comfort, style and something that would hide my beer belly after all of that consumption – enter ASOS Lace Floral Mesh Bodycon Dress.
Whenever I’m looking for statement pieces at an affordable price I always head to ASOS for that. Now, to some this may not necessarily be “out there”, especially for something like Coachella, which is known for it’s over-the-top fashions, but hear me out. As a gal whose middle name should be “minimalist”, this was definitely far from something I’d wear from my day-to-day wardrobe. Lace, print and embroidery are three words that NEVER make their way into my sentences when describing my aesthetic, but when I saw this number – I knew it had to be one of my outfits.
As I had mentioned before, comfort is huge to me and I already had an idea of what the weather would be like – spoiler alert, it is ridiculously HOT. So I thought the body suit underneath and mesh overlay would make the dress breathable enough for me to last into the chilly night, and it definitely did. As a way to balance out the outfit I opted for plain white sneakers, rose gold sunnies and my signature red lip.
Lesson learned: good things happen when you step out of your comfort zone and into the middle of the desert…
