Music festival season is nearly upon us my friends, and while I won’t be heading south to Indio this month, I’m already planning my festival attire anyway. The Bay Area is playing host to its own awesome music celebration this spring, with Bottlerock hitting the Napa Valley in May, and I certainly won’t be missing that. Music fest getups should be easy but fun, and comfortable footwear is of the utmost importance, since no one likes traipsing around festival fields/gravel/mud pits in heels. Other things to take into consideration are sun and heat, so easy fabrics and sun protection are key.
Happy music festing!

Almost forgot – a comfy bag big enough to carry all the essentials:
One of my absolute favorite destinations for a long weekend away is the Napa Valley, and I’m happy to say that I’m joining a couple of my pals there this weekend for a some wine tasting, sightseeing and seriously good meals. Napa – like the rest of the fine state of California – is pretty laid back and casual when it comes to attire, so comfy chic is the way to go when packing for a few days there. The essentials: a comfortable maxi dress that will take you from the vineyard to the bistro, a blanket for wine and cheese picnicking among the vines, rustic-chic boots and some San Franciscan shades – it is sunny California, after all.
Something set me off on the hunt for the perfect fall hat the other day, and in my search I found just what I was looking for – at least in terms of the idea behind it – in the reviews for one of the hats: “a hat that inspires an outfit.” Love that notion. Per usual, I’m having a bit of trouble deciding on which of these lovely accessories shall be mine – which is your favorite?
