It’s finally here! Festival season officially kicks off this week in Austin, Texas with SXSW! I am heading down on Thursday and couldn’t be more excited to check out all the music and fashion Austin has to offer. As of now it’s looking like a sunny, warm weekend that will be quite the welcome change from Philly’s current snowy conditions. I always like to plan my festival outfits in advance so that I know I’ll have looks that are comfortable, functional, and cute. Here’s what I’m packing for SXSW 2013!
The look above is my favorite and probably what I will wear for the flight and my first day there. The pants are incredibly comfortable and I love how they look paired with an easy tee and ankle boots. I usually always have a backpack at festivals so that I can carry all my belongings (camera, journal, etc.) on my back and keep my hands free, and I’ll also be bringing the tiny little Convertible Leather Wallet - I love this wallet because you can wear it like a cross-body and have your essentials right there at your side for easy access.
Items pictured: White Cloud Pant, Round The World Tee, Washed Backpack, Distressed Collins Boot, Convertible Leather Wallet, Sight of Day Necklace, Colonial X Pendant, Petrol Stone Ring, 6 Petal Flower Ring, Goodnight Moon Sunglasses.
If I go out Thursday night, I can just switch out the pants with the Jersey Asymmetrical Drape Skirt! I would add some colorful accessories to brighten up the look, like the Khyber Obi Belt and Hard Bangle Set.
I’m not much of a girly girl but I do like cute printed dresses for festival season, especially shapeless ones like this! Paired with ankle boots and sunnies its a perfect festival look.
Items pictured: Penny Lane Chiffon Dress, Distressed Collins Boot, Convertible Leather Wallet, Sight of Day Necklace, Colonial X Pendant, Filagree Stone Ring, Shell Bracelet, Goodnight Moon Sunglasses.
This last look is simple, easy and perfect for some daytime vintage shopping in Austin! I love the fold-over waist and braided waistband of these shorts, it makes the different and interesting. And the crochet detail on this shirt is perfect! Add the perfect pair of summer sandals and you’re set.
Who’s going to SXSW?!
