As passionate as I am about fashion; my soul belongs to Music
While I can't agree that fashion is the BEST part of a music festival, there is no DENYING there’s a whole new genre of clothing solely dedicated to honoring the magic of the laid-back desert vibes resonating from festivals like Coachella
I’ve never been to Coachella- being from NY it’s not as easy for us East Side residents to pack up and head to the desert. However, I am no festival virgin. The North East offers many festivals as does the Mid-West and Southern states. If your into being international which I am- there are tons of great festivals going on all over the world.
I’d love to write one of those amazing, had to be there, stories from my adventures, but frankly that would just take too long. And to be perfectly honest, I don’t think I can remember most of them.
I will preach this; if you have even the remote opportunity to attend any Music & Arts Festival. DO IT. I have heard some of the most amazing sets, met so many unbelievable people, and experienced some of the most amazing soul awakening moments. (Note: this moments did not involve drugs)
Hunter Ski Mountain is located in the Catskill Region of New York, for a weekend in June it host Mountain Jam. Last year’s headliner, Tom Petty. Unfortunately, that was the last time I got to see the performer live and he did not disappoint. I spent the weekend lugging camping gear up a mountain, dancing like my shoulders were on fire,(Troy Reference) and having one of the best times of my life.
Life fact: I spent it with a perfect stranger (stranger no more) shout out (are shout outs still a thing? So I'll say heyyyyy to Pauly- hands down one of the coolest, sweetest, music lovers I have yet to meet. (Opportunity to connect with old friend)
This Spring and Summer, as you’re packing your bags to hit the road to rock out to your favorite bands, it’s time to rethink your festival outfits. The beauty of festival season is that it’s a unique opportunity to express yourself through fashion. So whether your vibe is more youthful and free-spirited, high fashion, or seriously boho, the sky’s the limit.
Where past seasons have focused heavily on fringe and flower crowns, this season seems to be shifting to more laid back unique looks like tie dye details, overalls and logos, western belts, and off-the-shoulder looks. That’s a shift the Vintage Bohemian can rally behind. Be your own Muse! The fashion is part of the art, the music and the journey are now a part of. Your Living Styled + Living Free
In need of some serous fashion inspo? Look into your soul, find the magic within and express whomever you choose to be. Happy Hunting!
