Monthly Inspiration: Fest Season

festival fashion

It's officially fest season beginning in May here in Germany, culminating in the biggest fest of the year, Oktoberfest! I've been attending as many fests as I can, like the Nurnberg and Regensburg Volksfests. I love the Christmas markets in the Winter but they are so damn cold.  Summer fests give off a totally different vibe. There are a lot of music festivals in Europe for any kind of music you are into, like Rock Im Park in Germany and Tomorrowland in Belgium.  I'm in the market to go some music festivals here in Germany, particularly so if you know of one let me know.  I've collected some of my favorite fest looks above, though if you come to Germany during fest season, you'll see people wearing their Dirndl and Lederhosen instead.

Kimonso are it right now for summer fests.  This particular one is gorgeous!

I love these affordable heart sunglasses.  They've always signaled to me that summer is near.

Fringe is always going in and out of style but if you are attending a fest, it's always in style.

Every good music lover needs a good pair of headphones. This metallic colorful version is a great tool for you to tune out with.

Pair these modern gladiator sandals with some cute shorts and your kimono = magic.

Turquoise and gold anything is perfect for summer. Also, this ring is adorable.

I love layering jewelry in the summer.

This link gives a great tutorial on how to create these lovely waterfall braids.

These remind me of the hats I used to wear when I was little.  A chic way to keep the sun out of your eyes.

Going to any fests this year?
