I am completely embodying my bohemian side this upcoming festival season. Think oversized kimono dresses and giant aviator sunglasses paired with my Le Fluff sandals from the new UGG Spring collection. And guess what, they come in every soft color of the desert like Red Rock and Pink Dawn. These colors have me dreaming of an evening walk to the festival. The sun starts to set just as the night is only beginning. Having a little fluff on my feet is the luxury I always find in UGG, and now in a perfect summer sandal. I can’t wait for that drive from Los Angeles to Palm Springs. It’s my favorite. This is my 10th festival season and now that I’m a seasoned veteran, I know exactly how to pack. I always gravitate toward bright colors, floral prints, and Japanese-inspired kimonos to throw on over my bikini. As for my footwear, I’m all about comfort with a little “fluff”. My new favorite word.
This season I went to Coachella sans kimono and crochet crop tops. I wanted to steer clear of the typical festival fashion. Instead of leaning towards fast fashion that you can only wear for just that weekend, invest in some statement denim pieces that will take you through Coachella and beyond. That’s why I went with 7 For All Mankind in my festival packing. Their new denim collection consists of jumpsuits (yep, it hugs perfect at the waist), mid-rise shorts in classic washes, and super comfortable low-rise flares. Denim is easy, and you can accessorize each piece to make it your own. The new 7FAM collection has a 70’s twist that I loved. One day I went with an adorable off-shoulder jumpsuit. The next, a bodysuit and black denim shorts. For my last day on Coachella grounds, I sported a full-on light blue denim crop top and matching flare pant. Edgy and unexpected with a pop of red. Less is more, believe it or not. Even at Coachella. But that’s the beauty of festival season…just do you, even if it’s against the norm, and listen to some good music.
It’s festival season!! Coachella in Indio, California? Check. SXSW in Austin, Texas? Check. It’s in Texas where I whip out my classic leather cowboy hat. I’ve been getting far too much sun, but loving every single moment of it. SXSW is rowdy. The streets are closed down. The bars are open. There’s music everywhere you turn. The guitarist on the corner of the road. The back of the little jazz cafe. It’s a full week to immerse yourself in all different sounds. Different cultures.
From Coachella to Governor’s Ball to Bonnaroo, I think I’m finally getting a hang of this festival crawl thing. Rompers? Check. Belly grazing crop tops? Check. Black on Black? Check. I kept things extra simple for Governor’s Ball, jumping over mud puddles and finding that dry patch of grass to sit in the shade. BCBGeneration making getting dressed from afternoon till those midnight shows totally easy.
