Music Festival Outfits: Rain and Shine


Style Challenge: What do you wear to a music festival? 
Now, in most major North American cities, weather can be pretty unpredictable - Toronto, New York, Detroit - I'm looking at you. So I've put together two looks. Looks that are also age appropriate. One for Rain and one for Shine. 

First for Shine:
  • A loose, flouncy 
  • Comfortable shoes/flats
  • A light scarf
  • A hat for sure for protection from the sun
  • Sunblock - more protection (especially those of you who love to show LOTS of skin)
  • A cross body bag so when dancing it can just sling across

But as we all know, into every life...or music festival, a little rain must fall. 

So for the Rain look, I switched some things:
  • A wider brimmed hat 
  • A durable jean jacket paired with a favourite band T-shirt - Jackson 5!
  • Larger bag, but still cross body - handy if I need to remove layers, and also if I end up picking up some CDs, T-shirts or other swag from the festival
  • Switched to rain boots 
  I hope you enjoying this musically, festival-ly inspired post.

    1. Lis, my husband is a HUGE Mets fan...so I think by default (and mostly because I don't follow sports) I am too. :) I just wanted to sport a baseball hat since there were so many of them on display during NY Fashion Week. :)

  33. omg are you a mets fan?? I was born and raised near shea stadium (citifield now) so naturally I root for the mets but unfortunately Met fans are a dying breed :(

    I love the diversity of your rain and shine outfits, they're both casual and chic. And I love both hats. I tried wearing a vintage black hat like yours today but ended up looking like michael jackson (not cute) lol.

    hope all is well,
