Occasion Outfitting - the Summer Concert or Festival

Summer is the time when your favorite musical artist or annual festival comes up and you have three things in mind: how do I look great, feel comfortable, and stay cool during this heat wave!  Trust me, this is something I have been trying to accomplish for years.  As a "sweataholic" I know that it's hard to stay cool without showing up in your bathing suit.  Here's what I recommend.

1. A Cotton Dress - Cotton Dresses are perfect for the summer weather.  I love the maxi look, but sometimes that's not as cool as a simple shorter version.  It's a breathable fabric that's comfy and machine washable with you start to glisten or someone spills something on you.

Soft Joie Rosemary Dress, $128

Gap Strapless Ikat Dress, $64.95

Old Navy Maxi Tube Dress, $32.50

2. Flat Sandals - When you're not comfortable - it shows.  Most of these festivals and concerts will be outdoors, and you won't want to wear heels.  I recommend a sandal with a back - flip flops are great but you can easily trip on them.  You never know what kind of terrain you'll encounter or how the weather will affect it.  

UGG Nayami Sandals, $140

Old Navy Braided Rope Sandals, $22.94

3. A Fun Hat - With the UV rays, you'll want to protect your skin.  Sure, you can apply the SPF but I always get burnt on my head!  It's the worst - you try to blow dry your hair and it feels terrible and then when your skin starts to flake you look like you have a serious case of dandruff!  

Bop Basics Floppy Fedora, $70

Merona Coconut Buckle Hat, $12.99

4. Sunglasses - Sunglasses are a fun way to enhance any look.  Go for a casual look like aviators or a dramatic oversized pair.  It will look great!  

Marc by Marc Jacobs Oversized Aviators, $98

House of Harlow 1960 Carey Sunglasses, $125

Throw on some chunky jewlery and you are good to go.  You have the perfect summer outfit that looks effortless and chic.  Watch out Sienna Miller!
