Over the past weekend, music festival season kicked off here in New York City. A few girlfriends and I spent Saturday gallivanting around Queens, which was a rather in-your-face reminder that, well, I’m gettin’ old.
Publicly rocking out the sounds of Calvin Harris – and soon, Vampire Weekend, Pretty Lights and St. Lucia — while soaking up some sun (not enough, apparently — those GAMS!) seems to naturally lend itself to street style best described as either beautifully bohemian or… Slutty Pocahontas. To each her own.
I didn’t attend Coachella this year, but this was an outfit I dreamt up a few weeks back during a bout of wishful thinking. Although I’d probably have opted to trade these insane Rocco pumps for a more modest pair of daytime flats.
A part of me wishes I was still raging in the company of teens and tweens up north, but a larger part is looking forward to the outdoor concerts ahead this summer: GovBall, music in Central Park, the list goes on. In a few week’s time, I’m making my first return to Chicago since the big move to New York for a three-day, non-stop festival extravaganza and reunion of friends. Excited is an understatement!
