An Outfit For Festival Season

Festival season is upon, and music fans everywhere are enjoying the sounds of their favorite bands and sporting stylish, boho-chic festival ensembles.  Who hasn't seen the images of Kendall Jenner from the first weekend of Coachella?  Although I won't be traveling to California for weekend 2 of Coachella (but I hope to someday), Scott and I are headed to New Orleans for Jazz Fest with hopes of catching acts like Pearl Jam, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Van Morrison, Anders Osborne, Eric Lindell and more.  My looks for the weekend will not doubt pale in comparison to the Hollywood starlets, but nevertheless, I've had fun coming up with my own festival ensembles.  Here's a little something I've come up with for this weekend.  What's your festival look?

These are my must haves for a spring or summer music festival.  
A flirty boho-chic top
Denim shorts (similar here and here)
A light-weight hat for sun protection
Fun, mix-and-match bracelets
A smallish cross-body bag
Comfy sandals or sneakers


I plan on pulling out his little getup from last summer for at least one day of Jazz Fest.  It's always so hot in New Orleans this time of year that minimal clothing is a must.  Though, I have this weird thing about sandals at music festivals.  I really prefer to wear a closed-toe shoe like a pair of Toms or a cute sneaker.  Maybe it's all the dust or maybe it's the thought of standing in a dirty bathroom, but I really don't like my toes exposed.  Am I crazy?

  3. So cool that you shared this Emily. In my latest post I styled an off-white dress with a fedora and laceup flats for a festival/Coachella vibe. You should check it out. Great minds think alike! You styled this so well.

    The new linkup is currently live. This outfit is too good not to be shared. Join me this Thursday and every Thursday by linking up. Thanks, Ada. =)

    1. Thanks! It's actually not embroidered. It's design on the fabric that Smith (the designer) sketched out using Sharpies, and then had the fabric made. Cheers, E
