Festival Style | Fashion Update

Concert Style

Oh how I wish I went to one of the real summer festivals… I always find myself in the wrong place at the wrong time. Nevertheless I can still treat my daily life like a festival, and this weekend I happened to go to an awesome show. The National live at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery! (read more about it in my last post here)

Here I am wearing

  • A long black shirt, vans us open 2013 (represent!)
  • black sheer tights, target
  • black leather boots, for romping and stomping 😉
  • black felt hat, cottonon
  • denim vest, upcycled

most importantly:

  • tote bag full of wine, beer, cheese, and crackers!

This outdoor venue is the perfect kind, the one that allows you to pack your own blankets and picnics and refreshments. They simply ask we clean up after ourselves and don’t bring in any hard liquor. As a lover of wine this was just fine. For those of you that don’t know, Matt Berninger of The National loves wine. It’s basically all he sings about – no joke. The picnic essentials prepared us for a great evening, and the show was absolutely spectacular.

Solana Beach | Who What Wear

Followed by my recent posts A Day at Solana Beach, and WEAR ART Thou Going, I suppose I finally ought to fill you in with the style report!

What Lisa and Lauren wore on their day trip to Solana Beach, California. 

Beach Fashion

Lauren came ready for some sun in her flowy Free People crop top, paired with high waisted shorts with a tribal print. The two compliment each other; the top might be cropped but the excess billowy fabric keeps the look fun and flirty, and the shorts come up to the waist which elongate her legs. The teal palette in her clothes and accessories highlight her eyes and the natural ocean backdrop and her black strapped Steve Maddens complete the look for a day of walking and beaching.

beach day

I chose to wear all black (as usual) and paired it with my Andy Warhol beach bag as my statement. Since the day was still a mystery to me, I knew a large beach bag would be a good idea. So I stuffed it with sandals, a towel, sunscreen, water, magazines, and ready for a multi-purposeful day of walking shopping and beaching. I’m wearing my LBD from H&M, a suede jacket from Elle’s fashion line, and my new booties from Cotton On.

We love finding new places together, and can’t wait to see what the rest of California has to offer us this summer… and whatever will we wear?!!?!
