Festival Fashion: Weekend One

A music festival is a magical place, in all aspects – the setting, the music, the weather, and of course, the people. Festival fashion at weekend one was so much fun to see – trends we saw everywhere were flower crowns, cutoffs and crop tops, of course. But we also noticed a lot of fun mixed prints, maxi skirts and sheer, flowing kimonos worn over simpler looks to add a bohemian touch. With temperatures that go from blazing heat during midday to cooler evenings, kimonos were the way to go. Here are some of our favorite looks from weekend one of the music festival set in Indio, California!

We ran into one of our fp girls who looked amazing in the FP One Penelope Slip and Studded Muddy Waters Sneaker with cute ruffled socks – we also loved her festival paint!

Natascha of the blog In Search of Sadie kept it casual and cool in black cutoffs, a tank and ankle boots with a denim shirt for when the sun goes down.

Keeping it cool in overalls and converse hi-tops.

The gal with the long floral pattern pants & black cropped top, her outfit is darling! Also, I admire the parasol wisdom- all the exoticism it conjures. Speaking of which, have you noticed photographs from the twenties/thirties where the underside of their (usually beach) parasols are painted in different patterns? Totally FP, seems to me. :)

Natalie Off Duty is wearing the Golden Dreamed Necklace from in the first outfit post where rock + roll meets boho! Love her! <3

Loving all these looks! So summery and FUN!

Terri -April 15, 2013, 3:39PM

Absolutely…Natalies rock n roll meets boho!! those bell bottoms are the bomb!!

Jenny Ekberg -April 15, 2013, 5:51PM

Wow, this is beyond amazing!!! I love all the looks. I am lucky to have a job where I can sometimes (when I am not lecturing at uni) wear whatever I want (I am a scientist) so I pretty much wear festival style clothes to work!! This is very inspiring!!! I “made” a top that looks like Natalies from a vintage Obey t shirt.

Jenny Ekberg -April 15, 2013, 5:53PM

Oh and PS. I have an almost identical backpack to the bright one, it is made by Hmong people from Thailand/Burma!

Jenny Ekberg -April 15, 2013, 5:55PM

Martha’s SKIRT!!!!! Do you know where she got it? I saw similar shorts on Karen Blanchard on her blog, they were Zara. Anyone knows where one can get that skirt?

Shelley -April 15, 2013, 11:49PM

All the sunshine and the way the light is in the desert is friggin’ gorgeous. So beautiful… when I die, bury me in the desert so my soul can forever be warmed by the sun.

We love this kind of thing in the summer.
Very stylish, with everything from retro 60’s and 70’s to modern day, these women are chic hedonists!
Got a few girls at the office I wanna impress with this.
