outside lands 2016, day 3
Sunday, the third & final day of Outside Lands, is always a little bittersweet. On the one hand, I’m generally pretty exhausted from the long days, short nights, endless standing, and daily back-and-forth transportation to & from San Francisco that accompany this weekend-long festival. On the other hand, I always have such a great time that as tired & sore as I am the next day, I already find myself anticipating the coming year’s festivities. This year, Sunday may have actually been my favorite day. We started our day off with front row spots to see one of my favorite bands, the Oh Hello’s (who were absolutely FANTASTIC), and also got to enjoy nostalgia filled sets performed by Third Eye Blind and the Muppets (no, I’m not kidding). We had a lot of down time between shows as well, so we got to enjoy an ice cream taco, which I have been obsessing over since last year, as well as a trip to Wine & Chocolate Lands for some refreshing vino and s’mores. We ended the evening & the weekend with Lana Del Rey, who’s beauty & effervescence provided a great way to end the festival.
I’m a girly-girl at heart, so I purchased this beautiful lace playsuit from Spell and the Gypsy Collective back in spring when it was on sale – as you may have guessed, they’re one of my favorite designers when it comes to festival fashion. When it came time to pack for the festival, I knew that layering would be really important to sustain a full day and evening in San Francisco. Instead of sticking with feminine accessories & layers to match the lace romper, I decided to give the look a 90’s grunge feel with a green military jacket layered over a black draped sweater, as well as some sheer black tights & combat boots. To complete the look, I wore a simple black chocker and some dark eye make-up, courtesy of Kayla. Overall, this turned out to be a great outfit, as it allowed me to keep cool during the middle of the day when the sun started to beat down on the crowd, but also kept me warm during the cool coastal evening. I also love 90’s fashion and its not everyday that you can get away with such a grungy look. Festivals are great for really going for it with trends.
Sadly, that’s all I have for Outside Lands 2016. For more photos from the weekend, be sure to check out my Instagram. Otherwise, you’ll have to wait until next year!
