festival style

This weekend was the long-awaited Boston Calling music festival here in Boston. Craig and I had been waiting for this weekend for months. It was my first music festival, and let me tell you: there's a whole lot of standing at festivals. But beyond that, the weather is unpredictable. I've seen a lot of people throw out ideas for cute festival outfits, but none of those would have flown this weekend. Shorts? I think not.

So today and tomorrow, I'll show you what I wore to the festival. The second day was perfect weather: sunny, but a bit chilly. But the first day? It poured. And it was freezing. I'm told by British co-workers that this weather made it a more realistic festival. You know, like the ones they have in England.
sweater: gap [similar] | t-shirt: zenthreads | pants: j.crew | wellies: hunter
And the most important accessory I couldn't leave home without?
rain jacket: north face
Seriously, I would have been a mess without it. Just before we left, I threw on an extra sweatshirt and THANK GOD I did. It was too cold. Halfway through the day, I threw on a plastic poncho because I just wanted an extra layer. I could have used a pair of gloves (hindsight is 20/20), but I lived. It was a great day of dancing in the rain and listening to some super awesome music.

Check back tomorrow for Day 2!


  1. Ugh, cold and rainy weather is the worst! But you still managed to look adorable, as always! :)

  2. i love your paris t shirt! and your last photo just made me smile :)

    1. Thank you! It's definitely one of my favorites from ZenThreads!

  3. OMG THAT KISSING TOBY PHOTO IS TOO CUTE. I want to print it out and put it up in my office. That's not weird, right?? haha I'm so jealous of your festival going. I wish Bonnaroo had a better line up this year, but I'm broke as a joke anyway. Oh well. I'm going to see Best Coast tonight! If you don't know who that is, you should.
