Festival season has officially begun my friends. The rest of the spring calendar is a nonstop whirlwind of campouts, dance music and exhaustion. EMF 3 is next weekend (AGH!) and I can't stop daydreaming about the ultimate festival wardrobe. Here are five items on my must have list for 2014 festival season (and every day life). May the festivals begin!
1. A Wear Anywhere Dress
Festivals call for versatile wardrobe pieces. I need something that i can throw on, in my tent in one fail swoop and wont be constricting while i bound around all day and dance late into the night. plus props if it comes in a cool color and also looks great with your kimono. I'm liking this printed one by ascot and hart.
2. Festival Paint
I've been coveting these awesome metallic temporary tattoos by Flash Tat since I stumbled across them earlier this year. They are seriously cool. I love the look of festival face paint, but I never find the right moment to sneak off in front of a mirror and paint my own face (it's much more fun to do someone else's) and the majority of paints start to smear when you sweat. Flash tats are the perfect solution for semi-permanent festival bling. I can't wait to rock some at Euphoria (keep your eyes peeled for our very own dragonfly flash tat design roaming around the fest this year).
3. Festival Blanket
This could really be any blanket, but I particularly like this Mexican Serape from Gunn and Swain in neon orange and magenta. And I've mentioned before, you could also go for a large tapestry for easy packing. Bonus for large ones that you can throw it over the top of your campsite for extra shade (and an easy to spot tent).
4. An Edgy Ear Cuff
This ear cuff by Brvtvs has me seriously swooning. So delicate and yet at the same time, not. If only i had $150 to drop on a little piece of golden bling for my outer ear. Instead I splurged on these custom high-fidelity plugs for my inner ear (and my future self is thanking me).
5. A Beautiful Kimono
If i could lounge around all day long in a kimono I would. Some people think they look like robes (I'm looking at you mom), but I think they are perfectly boho and beachy. Arnhem has an amazing collection of dreamy kimonos and other festival wear. I have the Arnhem Bowerbird Kimono in Sky Daydreamer and it is awesome.
Have tips on what to wear for festival season? i'd love to hear them!
