a bag for bonnaroo

Post image for a bag for bonnaroo

bonnaroo is almost here! three days…it is time to start thinking about packing and luckily i’ve been a couple of times so i know exactly what to expect. here’s a look at what will be in my suitcase!

bonnaroo takes place on a farm in manchester tennessee, and at this time of year it gets brutally HOT – you are in a wide open space with very few trees, and people actually fight over the shade. but even if the forecast is for sunshine all weekend, there is still a very good chance that at some point it will rain. i would not go to bonnaroo without a good pair of waterproof boots and a raincoat!

during the hot days i tend to wear a bathing suit under cutoff shorts and a lightweight top. the chiffon slip would be perfect. throughout festival grounds there are mist tents set up for people too cool off, and believe me they are the BEST. i would bring a reusable water bottle too, because they have water stations throughout the grounds and buying bottled water is pricey (not to mention bad for the environment). sunglasses and sunblock are a must, and i’ll probably wear my straw fedora the whole weekend – i’m obsessed. a blanket is good to have for shows, especially the mellow shows where you just want to lie down, close your eyes, listen to the music and drift away…

free people items pictured above: 1. vlatava convertible skirt; 2. chiffon and mesh slip; 3. indian toile tube; 4. rugged & ripped cut-off short; 5. nicholas k larmont jacket; 6. fp skinny military cargo; 7. straw fedora; 8. classic aviator; 9. suede medicine bag; 10. printed v wire bikini; 11. folklore sandal.

other items: hunter boots, pendleton blanket, burt’s bees sunblock, sigg water bottle, sony digital camera.

Rainboots are SO uncomfortable during the day at the bonn!

I wore mine last year and my heels got the biggest, most insane, blisters.

I really, really enjoyed this! I’m spontaneously quitting my job this fall for backpacking trip across South America. I’m a huge fan and customer of free people (and your wonderful blog <3) and was wondering if you ever put together a list like this for backpacking? I love your clothing because of how well the pieces overall can coordinate and are convertible (and beautiful!) – it's perfect since I obviously can't bring that much.. Anyway, just wondering! Thanks!
