Festival Ready + GIVEAWAY!


Happy Monday! 
It's festival season and with Lollapalooza coming up in a few weeks, Kohls gave me another challenge.  They asked me to create three completely different looks for each day of Lollapalooza.  Now I've never even been to a music festival before, but I was totally up for the challenge!  I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised at the pieces that I found.  I had a vision of the outfits that I was hoping to create and I was pretty much able to do that, while still staying true to my style.  

 A few things come to mind when I think of being outside at a music festival.  Comfort is definitely the first thing, so of course that means no heels!  I am such a heels girl all the way, but it was actually a lot of fun coming up with these outfits and having to incorporate flats instead.

Outfit 1 





Shorts: Elle (here) / Tank: Apt 9 (here) / Vest: Simply Vera (here) / Sandals: Apt 9 (here) -via Kohls
Hat: H&M (similar) / Bag: H&M (similar) / Sunglasses: Tommy Hilfiger (similar)


For the first look, I wanted to go for something a little bit edgy and boho.  As soon as I found these tribal print shorts, the rest of the outfit just came together.  I wanted a bold pop of color, so this tank was perfect.  I thought of pairing a kimono on top and luckily I came across this vest.  It's such a fun layering piece for summer.  When looking for shoes, I was hoping for some type of gladiator sandal so these worked out really well!  I already had the hat and fringe bag at home, so the first outfit was complete.  I added a few of my accessories and a bold lip to finish it all off.



Outfit 2







Top: LC (here) / Skirt: Lily Rose (here) / Bag: Relic (here) / Sandals: LC (here) -via Kohls 
Sunglasses: Charlotte Russe (similar) / Cuff: Prima Donna (here)


I guess you can say this is my flower child outfit.  I wanted something cute & girly.  I found this simple top with a collar imprint that paired perfectly with this floral skirt. I didn't want this outfit to appear too dressy, so I thought a cross body bag would be a great way to add a sporty touch.  I love that I found one to make the outfit pop out a bit more.  Then I found these simple white flip flops that were on sale for only $9.99 and they are seriously so comfortable!   I wanted to do something different with my hair that could compliment this outfit, so I figured that milkmaid braids would be the best idea. It's an easy hairstyle for being outside at a festival.



Outfit 3





Top: LC (here) / Shorts: LC (here) / Sandals: Apt9 (here) / Bag: Apt9 (here
 Hat: Croft & Barrow (here) / Sunglasses: Apt 9 (here) - via Kohls 


For my last look, I wanted something simple and laid back, but still fun for a festival.  When I found this navy embroidered crop top, I decided to edge it up with a pair of denim cut offs.  I like that these shorts are not too short. Longer length cut offs are definitely on trend right now.  After putting these two pieces together, I instantly thought of a big floppy hat and oversized sunglasses with a side braid.  I was trying to find a pair of booties, but they didn't have my size.  So I decided on these sandals because they have a low thick heel.  Then I just accessorized with my daily stacked bangles and layered these necklaces.


Now on to the best part of this post!  Kohls is giving away a $100 gift card to one lucky winner!  It's super easy to enter, just do so through the widget below from now until July 22nd.  I will be emailing the winner on Wednesday, July 23rd.  Good luck and thank you for checking out today's post, I know it was a long one!
