As I mentioned Friday, it can be tough to dress for the Outside Lands music festival. I wore my stand-by boots with this simple grey knit dress on Friday. Man, I need some more comfortable, flat boots.
I also need a haircut.
Anyway, I had layers, because I am no fool. I packed a thin, long-sleeved grey T-shirt for under my dress, a navy knit scarf, a pair of socks to pull on over my tights, and this coat Mai found for me at the flea market. Mai is a fashion photographer and stylist, so when she forces an item of clothing on me I feel compelled to comply. In addition to finding me clothes, she took these photos.
This is what Mai wore. Her outfits always have such a sense of humor. On Sunday, she wore a thrifted skirt that was a celebration of oil drilling. There were seriously hand painted oil rigs all over it. Why do I not have a photo of this? Anyway, trust.
Mai has been blogging over at Fashioni.st for years, and for the next few days I’ll be featuring more of her Outside Lands photos. Please know that for every comfortable, well-dressed person, there were 200 women in tiny shorts and midi tops, with blue lips and tears standing in their eyes. I should have brought blankets for everyone. Next year.
Ten down, 990 to go.
I only got to go Friday and half of Sunday, but I’m already looking forward to next year. Are you a festival person (music or otherwise)? If you have tips for getting through a long weekend with nothing but a tote bag, let us know in comments.
