Festival Style + Giveaway

coachella fashion

I may not be going to Coachella this year, but that doesn’t mean I’m not all about the festival fashion! I went 4 years in a row for work back when I worked in the music industry (and also went to Stagecoach). It was a ton of fun, but I definitely got burnt out on the crowds, heat & insane prices. This year, I’m saving my money and stocking up my closet instead! 

Whether your headed to a festival or a summer concert, I’ve got you covered with some of my top style picks for Summer 2017 & an awesome giveaway (scroll down for details)!

My top festival / summer concert style picks for 2017:

Cutoff Shorts – I love my One Teaspoon Bandits! You can also take a pair of old jeans and cut them into shorts – super easy! I’m a fan of black or dark denim because they match everything!

Army Inspired Shirt Jackets – I love these because they’re great for layering. Sometimes it’s hard to gauge the weather at an outdoor show or festival. It can go from super hot to freezing cold, so these are  great for layering. You can also find super cute pieces right now with fun patches!

Tropical Dresses – I’ve been living on the edge lately, breaking outside of my standard black uniform. I love a cute printed dress. You can find a ton of light, tropical dresses right now. I love a ruffle sleeve or “cold shoulder” accent!

Band Tees – A much debated subject. I always recommend sticking with bands you actually like, but do your thang. A cute band tee is great for layering and you can wear it with shorts, a cute mini or jeans.

Denim Jacket – I’m all for a fun jean jacket. I’m not a fan of wearing denim on denim, but because most of my jeans & shorts are black – I think it totally works. You can also wear it with a dress or prints. 

Not going to Coachella? No problem! I’m teaming up with some fun brands to bring you an awesome Festival Giveaway! One lucky winner will receive:

    Coachella would be a great festival to check out in the future when I have more money but something more Local I’ve been wanting to go to is Bottlerock Napa. The tickets aren’t so expensive and it’s not far from where I live. People can still rock their festival style in more comfortable weather.

    I would so love to go to Warped Tour this year. It’d be great cause I’m hoping to re-invent myself. But I’d also very much enjoy it if I could see Pierce The Veil. They’re my favorite. As far as seeing bands live I’ve got in Neck Deep, One Ok Rock, Sleeping With Sirens, and All Time Low under my belt. But hopefully Warped is in my favor. Other festivals I’d love to go to are Riot Fest and Lollapalooza

    I really want to go to Reading and Leeds, but it’s in England and I’m in Vegas, so that long flight would have to be for more than just a music festival (in my dad’s opinion, if it was my decision, I’d probably go all the way across the world to see Fall Out Boy perform one song tbh)
