My Guide To Shopping Local: Festival Fashion Edition

I'm super excited about today's post because it involves two of my absolute favorite things-- shopping locally and festival season! When I started this blog (which now seems an ancient amount of years ago), I wanted to create it with the intent to be able to share some of my most exciting snags and finds with the world from places that you wouldn't typically be able to search and find. And with today's post, I feel like I'm bringing it back to just that!

Today I'm teaming up with Styleshack (a local online platform which is designed to connect shoppers to local boutiques and specialty stores based on your style and location) to introduce you to one of my favorite local LA stores Polkadots and Moonbeams. Born and raised in Los Angeles, I have oogled and fawned over this store for years, always trying (with somewhat of a fail) to talk myself out of NOT walking out of the store with absolutely everything in it because all the items are just that good. Well today, I'm excited that I finally get to share this local boutique with you all through Styleshack.

Thinking about what pieces from the store I wanted to showcase in today's post, I thought what better way to get it all together than by tying in my favorite season of them all with it-- festival season. As some of our favorite music festivals are inching up right around the corner (can you believe Coachella is next week?!), I thought this would be the perfect time to pull together three of my favorite festival fashion trends and looks with pieces all from Polkadots and Moonbeams. So whether you're looking to channel your inner Flower Child, Bohemian Chick, or be the Jumpsuit Queen-- Styleshack, Polkadots and Moonbeams, and I have got you covered below!

Happy Festival Season!

FLOWER CHILD

When I think music festival fashion, I instantly think about that the floral loving girl that loves to pull her favorite crop top, high waisted shorts, and of course, floral headband, out to come and play. Some people might call this the "cliche" festival look, but I find it my most favorite (maybe because it's the look I instantly love heading to whenever I hear that something like Coachella is just around the corner). So for this floral-loving-girl ensemble, I was instantly drawn to these fun patterned shorts, little blue crop top, and pretty white lace jacket to tie it all together (pun intended). The heart sunglasses were total perfection with this and, of course, the floral headband is nothing but beyond necessary. I mean, who doesn't love to have an excuse to channel their inner hippie while sunbathing on the grass listening to their favorite artists in the middle of the dessert?

BOHEMIAN CHICK

For the girl looking to channel her inner bohemian vibes, I think this outfit has just what you're looking for all over it. Wanting to switch up your headwear game for Day 2 of your music festival looks, this floppy hat vibe is obvi the next best way to go (and will dual as a fashionable protection against the blazing sun that will be heading your way). When I first saw this lace dress at the store, I instantly fell in love. How cute and perfect is it?! I think it's just the right amount of dressy and chic yet breezy and comfy to get you going all day long while you're hopping around from tent to tent. And I'm crazy all about the choker trend these days so this look to me would totally not be complete with adding a choker (or two).

JUMPSUIT QUEEN

Last but certainly not least, the jumpsuit queen. Who can end festival season without including an epic jumpsuit into the mix? Obviously to me, anything floral is always the best way to go, so when I saw this floral Free People jumpsuit that also happened to have the cutest off the shoulder vibe, I instantly couldn't resist. Adding this belt to give it a little extra jazz--throw in a top knot, some lavender lipstick, another cute choker, and a fun pair of shades and you're more than ready to go with your final look to round out your music festival debut.

Floral Love

It would be no Coachella for me without having a look dedicated to a floral headband, obviously. I pretty much had a sense ahead of time what I wanted to wear each day while there (because obvi fashionistas have to plan these things!). So from the second that I got this look together in Los Angeles, I was already so excited to put this on and take it for a spin in the desert. The lace design of the dress made me feel like a super 70's chick obviously mixed in with these amazing moccasin type booties and huge floral green headband to match my green sunnies. And the purse was just a cherry (on grapefruit in this case) on top of everything, adding a little extra flair and sweetness to the overall look.

The Wild Wild West

white jumpsuit I think it's safe to say that today's look is channeling a super 70's disco-tech meets Wild Wild West kinda vibe. How can you not just want to bust out and do the hustle with a jumpsuit like this right? This week's weather in LA was kinda crazy with some unpronounced rain that came pouring on us late Tuesday night. But other than that little hitch, LA's weather has been nothing but perfection, including yesterday when I decided to bust out this look. What I love about this jumper is that it completely goes with that kind of saying where it's all a matter of what side or perspective you see things from. From the front, this looks like a completely white jumpsuit, but from the side, you see that there's some black to it and thus it's multicolored. And then from the back, you totally think it' a crop top and high waisted shorts combination! I love the fact that you can play with an outfit and it can have so many different meanings and dimensions!
