“I’m not a woman, I’m a force of nature.” – Courtney Love
I said this year would be the year that I finally go to Coachella. If you know me well, you’ve probably heard me declare this every year since the festival first began. And, once again, I did not go to Coachella this year because of scheduling…but also (mostly) because of the price tag.
Still, I didn’t want to miss the opportunity to head to nearby Joshua Tree for a Coachella-esque photoshoot!
I did a few different looks with some of my favorite, fabulous festival-worthy rompers by Forever 21+.
I have always loved rompers. Always always always. There’s just something about how comfortable they are while looking so put together. But,.I never used to wear them because I hated my legs. They were always too big in my opinion and I felt uncomfortable showing them. It was at Philadelphia Dyke March when I finally wore a romper. I walked in the streets and I didn’t care what anyone thought about it…Actually, to tell you the truth, I felt sexy AF and assumed anyone seeing them agreed. (Look who’s grown!) So, yes, this shoot was more than just wearing cute summer outfits, but about owning my body, and being proud of it.
That said, I love how still the desert looks behind my vibrant outfit picks.
Here’s hoping I make it to Coachella next year and can take some photos at the festival! For now, these will have to do. <3
