Each year I say to myself "Next year I'm going to Coachella." What ends up happening when the year rolls back around? I don't end up going. Why? I'll come up with reasons on why I can't go and talk myself out of it. I guess I've never been much of a planner. Planning events or social outings to me is like setting myself up for disappointment. Not to take the planners down, I feel planning things out is too much of a commitment for everyone involved. Living in Vegas, I find that for most groups of people, it can be hard to commit to plans because there's a saturation of restaurants, nightclubs, and concerts that pull you in each and every direction. This in turn makes it hard for a group of people to all want to do the same thing once they're on the strip in the mix of all the excitement. I've experienced this in the past with friends locally and friends that come to visit. The lights down on the strip will get ya with distraction every time!! I love concerts, but for me to actually buy concert tickets is a commitment because I feel things don't always happen the way that you planned. A lot can happen from the time that you purchased the tickets to the time of the actual concert! My thoughts on all of this is a bit bizarre but as a fashionista maybe I'm also thinking..." Oooh with two concert tickets I can buy a couple of new outfits or a pair of awesome boots!" Funny huh? There are so many things that happen in a day, good and bad, most of which we didn't plan at all. To me when every move is strategically planned out, I feel that I will miss out on important moments because I'll be so engulfed and stressed in making sure that "my plans" worked out that I will forget to stop and smell the roses. A free spirit by nature, my favorite and most cherished memories are the ones where I go with what pops in my head at that moment. Basically if I wanted to go on a hike by myself because I feel I need to get away, I'll do it. I wanted to go skydiving and one night my old coworkers and I decided to go the next morning and we did! There are important things in life that I have to plan out such as meetings, appts etc but to plan out my social calendar? No thanks. Maybe it's because I've dealt with flaky people so much in the past that it's hard for me to muster up the energy to want to make plans all together. At this point in my life I thrive off of spontaneity. It' a good thing and a bad thing just like anything else.
Aside from my ramblings, it's possible I would have worn something similar to this outfit had I gone to Coachella.
