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.

An Old Navy Thanksgiving

When I think of holidays, I typically associate it with the mass crowds traveling away and going either somewhere exotic or to a place called home that's not where they're currently at. But for me, the holidays mean the exact opposite-- staying put right where I am with the ones I love. Thanksgiving has and always will be probably my most favorite holiday. Yet, there are no presents, no super cute twinkling lights and Christmas trees to go with it, or adorable music that you can sing along to by a piano. So why has Thanksgiving always struck such a strong cord with me in my heart? Really thinking long and hard about the subject, I've come to see it's because to me, Thanksgiving means spending time with the people you love. Ever since I was a little kid Thanksgiving meant waking up early to watch the Thanksgiving Day Parade on TV while my parents were cooking and prepping furiously in the kitchen. Thanksgiving meant waiting eagerly for groups of our closest family and friends to come to our house while waiting impatiently and excitedly for my dad's world famous turkey to hit the tables. Thanksgiving meant sitting around our TV once the crowd died down at the end of the day and watching our traditional Home Alone 1 or Home Alone 2 movie with all of our cousins while having second rounds of that day's Thanksgiving feast. For me, Thanksgiving meant no crazy and over the top celebrations, but instead, it meant spending time and being thankful for those around you and the ones you love.

Veuve Clicquot Polo Game

Veuve Clicquot Polo Game Bow ties, fedoras, big hats, florals, pastels, and endless bottles of champagne everywhere you turned. This past Saturday meant only one thing-- the annual Veuve Clicquot polo game at Will Rogers Park. As a newbie to the polo scene, I was overwhelmed with amazing fashion, friendly faces, and a scene like no other. Everyone there was definitely dressed to impress enjoying a nice leisure day in LA with weather that couldn't be anymore amazing for a polo game. Lying on the grass in obviously none other than our matching Veuve Clicquot bright yellow blankets, fans, and umbrellas and chatting with friends new and old, I couldn't think of a more perfect way to spend a Saturday.
