Diesel x The Style Darling: Coachella’s What to Pack

If you’re like me, you get that packing is one of the best parts of a trip! So welcome to my new installment: ‘What to Pack’. I’ve teamed up with Diesel at King of Prussia Mall to host their grand opening this weekend with a chance to win 2 tickets to Coachella plus airfare and access to the Diesel house!

Diesel’s designs are simultaneously edgy and effortless which couldn’t be more well-suited to Coachella’s chic Cali vibe. We’re talking some crazy cool distressed denim, a dress that zips apart into a vest & skirt, and some show-stopping prints! So I’ve pulled together my dream Diesel wardrobe for this three-day mega music festival and a few beauty necessities to ensure that you stay stylish and safe under that warm Cali sun!

(Insider tip: Come enter the contest and see which outfit I chose! I’ll be at Diesel KOP Friday for the kickoff at 4pm, Saturday 4-8pm, and Sunday 12-4pm. And follow along with #DieselKOP!)

A Little Bit of Leather

I definitely have a fashion comfort zone. In the winter, it consists of soft, fuzzy sweaters which can easily become boring. So to infuse my wardrobe with a little edge, I’ve been adding pieces with leather accents. The bit of leather adds unexpected toughness and if you’re wary about being able to pull off leather pants or a leather skirt, you can rock the trend without feeling like you need to own a Harley.
