EDC Orlando 2019

Where do I even begin? I never initially felt drawn to go to EDC for some reason, but after taking a day trip down for one day in 2018, I fell in LOVE with this production of a music festival.

2019 was the first year EDC spanned 3 days instead of just 2, and I was in countdown mode for weeks!

The festival is held at Tinker Field in Orlando, Florida yearly. The vibe at EDC truly is PLUR. There are people young and old raging face and making friends at every stage…rocking the craziest, most elaborate wild outfits ever! It’s a festival experience like none other and I regret waiting as long as I did to go.

I’m going to share with you my outfits for all three days!

DAY 1:

It rained out and was actually freezing day 1, so I spent a lot of time hiding out under the canopy tent where the sound is amplified like crazy and the stage lights pierce the darkness. I don’t have any professional photos from day 1, so here’s some straight from the gram for your viewing pleasure.

DAY 3:

What does exhausted even mean?! I never know how I make it out of these things alive, but I’m assuming it’s because my adrenaline levels are 10/10 the whole weekend! Lol. No complaints here though!!

PS- This outfit may have been my allllll time favorite festival curation. 🥰 HUGE thank you to Claudia Pink for custom making this beautiful hand-pieced chain skirt. It was everything I wished for and more!

12th Tribe Review +

I’ve always been a fan of 12th tribe, so I highly anticipated getting my subscription box in the mail. They are my favorite online boutique and I’ve personally always identified with their brand. I ordered their subscription box and I’m truly loving it!

For all your 12th tribe orders, you can click here to save 10%!

So what’s in the box?:

  • A black cropped long sleeve top
  • 2 pair of earrings
  • A woven clutch
  • Round sunglasses
  • 12th Tribe Popsocket

The quality of each of the items I bought is extremely good- I would say the boutique’s price point is fitting. The cut of the tee is fitted and flattering.

I adored the earrings, they’re lightweight and comfortable if you’re not a huge earring girl like me. The sunnies were okay/decent quality, but they are definitely on trend, so I’ll probably be wearing them all over! (I hate spending a lot of money on sunglasses anyway, because I have a horrible habit of losing them and scratching them!!)

My favorite item was absolutely the clutch! It’s beautiful, made very well and is pretty large to carry a bulk of essential items. The cute fluffy tassels are a nice touch too!

I’ll definitely be ordering in bulk from 12th Tribe more.

Stay tuned to see what’s in next month’s box!

The Lollapalooza 2018 Experience +

ABOUT LOLLA:

Lollapalooza is a huge festival held in various countries around the world. It was created in America 1991, running yearly until 1997, and then later on revived in 2003. The tickets sell out extremely fast- the festival hosts almost half a million people over the span of 4 days. We attended this year where it was held at Grant Park in Chicago.

The venue is large and beautiful, CLEAN, and relatively easy to navigate once you memorize the rectangular layout.

THE VIBE:

Lollapalooza- Lolla for short- is known for being a multi-genre fest. With everything from alternative rock + heavy metal, to hip-hop and EDM, there’s truly something for everyone. Here’s the 2018 lineup:

lol18-lineup_by_day-admat-v11-6024c349

Lolla is an ALL age event. This is something to be noted for people who are used to raving or are regular festival attendees. Although it’s jam-packed with college kids and at times felt like a massive frat party, I’d still say it maintained a PG13 vibe. If your college days are over, consider upgrading to VIP to stay away from the younger crowd.

ATTIRE: 

Think less boho than Coachella and less ravey than EDC. 95% of people kept simple and comfy in a crop top with denim shorts. Don’t forget festival safe footwear (i.e. boots so your toes don’t get stepped on, broken in converse you don’t mind getting dirty) and a hat. Cute but practical. Chicago is surprisingly hot during the day. It didn’t get too cool at night, so I wasn’t worried about carrying a jacket. Regardless, be sure to check the weather in advance. Camelbacks + Vibedration bags are welcome- I highly recommend carrying one at any festival!

Shaky Beats Music Festival+

Shaky Beats is an EDM music festival held yearly in Atlanta, GA. The second I saw Kygo on the lineup I didn’t blink twice before I purchased my ticket. He is my all-time favorite DJ/artist and was doing a tour for his recent album. Lucky for me, he made a stop at Shaky.

This was my first time attending this festival & I was anticipating it for months! The best part for me (ok well other than the experience itself as a whole) is planning outfits and seeing what I can bring together. Hope you enjoy! Xx

I can confidently tell you that Okeechobee Music Festival was the best weekend of my life.

Music festivals, in general, are great for being surrounded by close friends while having the opportunity to meet new ones who share so many common interests. Although nothing is as liberating as being completely worry-free from our usual mundane reality, the power of the music comes close.

Jam packed with art exhibits, food trucks, and hidden stages, it’s easy to see that OMF crew knows what they’re doing, and they do it well. Overall, the festival is extremely organized, and there’s never a shortage of things to do. Not to mention, they cater to vegan and vegetarian lifestyles!

There’s a strong sense of humanity and unity at music festivals that seems rare to experience in daily life, but I especially felt it at Okeechobee. It’s a heart warming feeling that really opens your eyes!

If you’re comfortable camping out, then I highly recommend this festival- especially if it’s your first time attending one (it was mine).

Tickets are currently on sale for OMF 2018 – will I see you there?!
