music festival season is here! the SXSW music festival kicks off today in austin. this festival has always eluded me – there’s always some reason why i don’t go. last year i was supposed to go, but instead i was on the couch recovering from ankle surgery. anyway, i’m kicking myself for not going this year. the lineup is so extensive it can seem a little overwhelming but there are soooo many good bands playing, and it’s a great opportunity to catch them in a small, intimate venue.
i made a playlist below of some of the bands i’m into who will be there, and if i was going to austin, here are the items i would pack!
for me, the key to packing for festivals is picking a few easy items i can mix and match, like skinny jeans, white top, denim shirt, a little black dress in case i feel like dressing up at night, and a pair of boots. i would definitely bring the cara pocket hip belt – a perfect festival belt so you don’t need to bother with a bag! and i would accessorize with some rad boot riders and a bag charm by the 2 bandits. throw everything in the mali pattern messenger, along with the aventurine pendant, bowie band ring, sunglasses and a journal, and hit the road!
