Festival Spirit

Monday, March 17, 2014

Piecing together the perfect festival ensemble takes time - so why not give yourself the upper hand and start now? 
This look isn't something I'd wear to a summer musical festival because, well, I'd be sweating bullets in a black dress, long sleeved button-down, and boots. But with that being said, this outfit is definitely festival inspired. I love that I can get my festival style fix now, even before the actual season rolls around. 
Festival style is all about bohemian chic. Think retro hippies gone high-fashion, but let's remember what century this is, so you've gotta add some modern flair too. 
Layer as many metal bracelets on your wrist as you want. The more you pile on the more festy you become. 
The great thing about festival fashion is how flattering it is. If you find yourself wearing a bodycon dress then you are in the wrong place. Easy breezy silhouettes rule the festival runway. And don't forget about high-waisted pieces paired with crop tops. 
If you're not a fringe girl (aka me), lace trimmed hems gives off a similar yet more refined vibe. I'm wearing a black dress here, but white lace dresses are perfection in summer.

Festival season really is closer than you think, and with these warm sunny days we've been having lately, I've been in full-on festival prep mode collecting all the bangles, sundresses, and boho chic pieces within reach! 

Save yourself the hassle later and start building your collection now. Throwing on a button-down over your entire look instantly makes it spring appropriate. 


Wow in festival attire...

  15. Funny I tried a very similar pair of boots. I am on a hunt for a pair similar to these I thought they were %50 off $49.99 and then realized they were in the wrong box and were $50 off $120 but it they had not been suede I prolly would of bought them. These boots are super cute on you.
