Bonnaroo Style OOTD(s)

Day #1

Day #1

Whew, I’m finally home back in Baltimore after a long journey through the lovely state of Tennessee. I attended Bonnaroo for the second time this year and let me just say, it was WAY better than my first go around. I had a fun time last year but this year topped that. Aside from going with the best group of people out there, I got to see Lionel Ritchie perform and holy shit – man knows how to get down. Jack White, Chrvches, Dr. Dog, Chromeo, Cage the Elephant, Neutral Milk Hotel, Flaming Lips, and Broken Bells are just a handful of other acts that blew me away.

Another thing that blew me away was the personal style there. So different! Everyone had their own vibe and dressed however they wanted which was awesome. So many colors and textiles really had me inspired. The weather wasn’t anywhere near as horrible as it was last year (95-100 degrees the entire time with no shade, this year hovered in the low 80’s with some clouds) so I didn’t have to live in a bathing suit.

Here are a few of my favoritesโ€ฆ.

DAY ONE

Kimono - Ecote, Dress- Free People

Cool fabrics were awesome, plus the flowy-ness of the material helped me stay cool.

I had a handful more outfits in between but I figured these are the ones that exemplified my style the best while at Bonnaroo! The main question I get asked by people who have not “festivaled” yet is “can you take a shower?”. Yes. I didn’t the first year and it was disgusting. The sweat and sunblock made me feel like the greasiest human alive. I also have very curly hair so any water is a no-no when I’m not able to straighten it. This year however I got over it and let my hair be naturalโ€ฆ.just kidding. I let it be natural but I also had some help from the Garnier Fructis Hair Smoothing Milk. It had moroccan oil in it that kept my curls but toned down the puff. You can shower there and depending upon the time of day it’s either $5 or $7. There’s no where to really change so I suggest wearing a bathing suit if you’re modest like I am. It’s hot water too and they provide shampoo and conditioner. I say it was like a prison shower, or what I imagine one would be like, but hey, clean non greasy hair was worth it.

 

Along with seeing new music at festivals like this one, you also have the opportunity to discover new visual artists and brands. I found this cute store, Mamie Ruth. They’re a brand from Georgia but have stores located in various states (n0, no Maryland ๐Ÿ˜ฆ )

If you follow me on Instagram you’ll know that I talked them up over and over because of how impressed I was with their stuff. Here’s a peek inside their setupโ€ฆ.

One last thingโ€ฆ.I was able to have the best accessory this year! My beautiful artwork, my gypsy, my tiger, my newest tattoo was healed by then.

Final Coloring

The work was done by KiKe Castillo of Brightside in Baltimore (Fed Hill). The outline took an hour and a week later we did the coloring which took about two and a half hours. It healed with no scabbing or scarring and was only really painful during the last twenty minutes of each session. I highly recommend he be your next artist even though I cried towards the end like a baby.

 

 

All in all this year was fantastic!

If you don’t really careย about my outfits or about style in general, check out my main blog, 120 Pearls, next week for my film coverage of the event! I have about four rolls to process, so expect a lot of colorful photos of a lot of colorful people. I’m excited to show you all.
