Are you missing out on Coachella this year? Don’t worry, you
aren’t the only one. If you’re hanging out in Seattle this weekend like me, this
post is specifically for you. Here’s to a weekend of #nochella.
I may not be going to Coachella this weekend but I’ve got
some local events you can go to this weekend that you can still dress
up, dress down, and dress cute for. With destroyed denim and bell sleeves,
you can still bring festival vibes into your weekend look. You can even recreate
my entire weekend look:
Dye Bell Sleeve T-shirt: $15.99 (On
Alike Block Sandals: $74.87
Here are 7 Seattle events happening this weekend:
