Well ladies, it’s official…festival season is upon us! This really is one of my most favorite times of the year. Why might you ask? Since I don’t usually wear a whole lot of color, I feel that festival season allows me to explore different areas of fashion and really surprise myself when it comes to outfit picks.
Last year was my first time at Coachella and I had such a blast. The whole atmosphere, the music, the food, and of course the fashion was to die for. Unfortunately I won’t be attending this year since I’m trying to save my money for Paris, but I know a lot of you babes will be attending multiple festivals this Spring and Summer!
So take a look at some of my favorite products that I totally recommend for festivals.
First….probably the most important product that I bring to any music festival or outdoor activity: sunscreen. My family has a history of skin cancer, so I take my sunscreen very seriously! And don’t be scared that you might not get tan if you wear sunscreen. I promise you will, it might just take a little longer! But in the end, it’s totally worth it (sunburns really suck)!! My all time favorite sunscreen comes from the fabulous company Coola. I really love their products because they don’t feel heavy or greasy on my skin. At festivals, it’s always so hot and sometimes humid, so lightweight sunscreen is perfect.
Second…sunglasses! Like I said above, it’s always so hot and sunny at festivals. Make sure to protect your eyes and look stylish at the same time! I’m a huge fan of sunglasses and have so many pairs (every outfit needs it’s own pair of sunnies…right?), but I’m really loving these stylish and sturdy frames from Otis. The leopard print detailing on the side is so fun and trendy — perfect finishing touches to any festival outfit. Not to mention these and all of Otis’s frames have scratch-proof lenses, which is great for me since I can be a little clumsy at times and drop my sunnies!
Third…a bikini top! When I was at Coachella last year, I couldn’t believe how hot and humid it was outside. I mean yes, the festival did take place in the middle of Palm Springs…but man I was not used to the high temps! By the third day, I really just wanted to wear a bikini. Everything else was just too heavy and made me sweat like a pig! I think one of the most perfect and logical festival outfits consist of some kind of flowy and loose bottom, such as a skirt, some loose shorts or even a maxi skirt paired with a bikini top. Super trendy and casual — plus you’ll get a nice tan!! This bikini top from LOVESURF is so cute, I adore the bright colors! It’s so comfortable and easy to move around in, which means it’s perfect for dancing and layering!
Fourth…a compact towel. I feel like this product is usually the one that gets forgotten the most at festivals and concerts. But really, I think it’s the most important (other than sunscreen of course). Not only can you lay it out on the grass to sit on and enjoy music from afar, you can also use it as a blanket when the sun goes down and the temps get a little chilly! What is great about this MAYDE Turkish towel is how small and light-weight it can be. You can just sneak it in your purse or bag! So so perfect.
So there it is ladies, my festival survival kit! I hope you all have an amazing festival season, it’s going to be a great one!! Let me know what festivals you’re going to, I’d love to hear!
