What To Pack For Pitchfork Music Festival

I’m heading to Pitchfork festival Thursday evening and I am stoked! There is so much awesome music to be heard and festival fashion to be captured. Plus, this will only be my second time ever traveling to Chicago, so I’m really excited to discover all that this lovely city has to offer!

I’m going to be running around for three days straight, taking it all in, so I’m making sure my outfits will allow me to run free. I’m bringing with me two pairs of boots, some skirts and tops, a few necklaces, a belt, and a backpack to carry my festival necessities. Here are my Pitchfork outfits broken down by day!

  1. Welcome from a Chiacgoan! I love my city… So enjoy your time here! Wish I was going to pitchfork, but I have a wedding to attend instead.

  2. Love your blog! I have a request / challenge for you. I recently purchased the French courtship slip, I love it and think it is beautiful and charming! My one issue with it is, how to style it? Other then a slip under it or tee over it. I would love, love , love to see a few different takes on this piece! It’s a great summer fall transition slip, I just am a bit stumped. Thanks so much for considering!!
