With Spring in full bloom and warm weather gracing us more everyday, so begins the time of year for music festivals! Fashion has always been influenced by music festivals, from the Woodstock festival in the late 60′s to the ever-growing popular Coachella festival in present day. These two events alone have set trends and altered the face of fashion especially among young people, and I couldn’t be happier! My inner hippie-loving-flower-child is ecstatic because the fashion the trends that have risen are much to my liking and what I already wear. Whimsical, flowy, bohemian…all things I just adore and try to work into my wardrobe everyday.
When I put together this look, the words that came to my mind were “fun” and “comfy,” two things that are important especially as a mom who loves to be stylish but also has to chase after toddlers! This floral romper is one of my favorite pieces to wear on a warm day of running errands or hitting the beach. The thin material makes it ever so breathable and perfect for those extra hot days and spring rompers are having a serious style moment. I love these bohemian tie-up sandals from the Ascot Friday x Matisse collection, I get compliments on them everywhere I go!
If I was heading to Coachella, or maybe Stagecoach (love me some country music), I would throw on this chambray shirt, perfect for the night wind chills and keeps the look fresh. Everyone needs to invest in a good chambray or denim shirt. Old Navy and GAP both have been great for these as of late. Lastly, I would throw my fringe Cleobella backpack over my shoulder and head for the desert, excited for the out-of-body experience that is Coachella. But alas, I come back to reality where the baby needs a diaper change and the toddler needs help getting his blanket stuck off the dishwasher door…And you know what, I wouldn’t have it any other way!
Bohemian+festival inspired shopping list: Everything you need to get you through festival season.
Why is it that sometimes it takes a trial, illness, or loss for us to see our blessings?
Perhaps experiencing loss opens our eyes to the entirety of our blessings. That’s what happened to me.
I experienced a momentary loss that opened my eyes for the rest of my life and helped me taste the price of great love.
