How To Do The Practical Music Festival
As the weather gets warmer and spring begins to bloom around us there's daydreams of summer in the air. Along with the swing of summer is the promise of music festivals and whether you're going to Coachella, Bonnaroo or to Boston Calling (like me!) you will need some stylish, yet practical, gear. With only 2 months to go I've begun to make my list for the ultimate festival experience;
1. Chic Sunglasses
I love a good neutral pair of sunnies that can go with any outfit, for 14.99 at Target what the heck right!? Although...
Yellow is the color of the season (thanks beauty and the beast) and for only 5.90!? Click the picture above for these Forever21 festival perfect shades. In my book for a 3 day festival you definitely need to bring 2 pairs of sunglasses. We can assume festivals are for getting loose, jumping around, hours and hours of standing and bumping through crowds, you definitely have a high possibility of losing your sunglasses.
2. Festival Steppers
Okay you've seen these pom's before, they're everywhere this season, however I have to say, personally, I'm still obsessed (btw Check out my Pom Pom board in my Style Gallery). What better accessory for your feet while you're jamming than a pair of gladiators with bobbles all over them?
Being prepared is a must in all prepaid-for outdoor adventures and one thing I've learned is to always have closed toe shoes at the ready. Especially for the headliners you'll be mucking about in muddy stew of sweat and spilled beer - ew. Not mention the hundreds of people stomping all around you. Keep your feet relatively safe with a backup pair of keds, and did you notice these are gold? Thanks again Beauty and Beast.
3. The Perfect Sack
Teeny backpacks are amazing. I am all about how secure your items are when you're jumping around while surrounded by strangers. This one stuck out to me for just this reasons. Whose really gonna mess with that twist latch?
The cross body bag. This particular style is adorable for a festival look mostly because of the awesome fringe. So long as you are not going to be weighing this bag down and you're being mindful to switch shoulders (ouch), a good soft cross body is a must have.
So here's my somewhat incomplete list of festival accessories to help spur the best experience possible, look for updates to this post as well and new pom pom images in my style gallery and festival fashions soon to be gracing the front page.
