As promised here is my third look from Osheaga last year! With weekend two of Coachella coming up, I thought I would share some more tips for attending a festival and cute outfit inspo for anyone still looking for a last minute outfit 😉
Bodysuit – Aritzia
Shorts – One Teaspoon
Boots & Hat – Guess
For my final look from Osheaga last year, I decided to go for a more risque look. I love the see-through trend so I went with a mesh bodysuit with black pasties underneath (which I had to buy separately). I paired this body suit with super cute shorts from One Teaspoon. These shorts are perfect for festival season because of the cute little, black fringe detail on the side! For those that don’t feel as comfortable with wearing pasties, it is possible to do this look with a cute lacy bralette underneath or a solid black bralette! That’s what I love about mesh tops, there are a lot of different ways in which they can be styled, they are also great transition pieces from daytime to nighttime! I decided to wear black ankle booties with all my outfits over the weekend. When packing for a festival I always try to pack as light as possible. Since shoes tend to be really heavy, I always try to pick shoes that will match all my outfits. Another thing that is really important is to make sure to pack shoes that are comfortable since usually you’re on your feet all day at the festival! Nothing is worse than wearing uncomfortable shoes to a festival, it definitely isn’t worth the pain or the blisters since you spend so much time on your feet (plus how are you supposed to bust out your epic dance moves if your feet hurt?! 😉 ).
For the whole weekend at the festival, I carried a mini black backpack to carry all my necessities! This was perfect because it was light, easy to carry and still looked cute with all my outfits! As mentioned in my previous post, it is really important to pack light when attending the festival because you don’t want to lug around a huge bag and be uncomfortable!
Well that wraps up my 3 looks from Osheaga! And as promised here are a few more tips for attending a music festival:
4) Come prepared! You never know what might go wrong or supplies that may run out at a music festival so it is important to be prepared for anything! I always make sure to pack my own hand sanitizer (because you never know when the bathroom may run out of soap!!) and I also make sure to pack (as crazy as it sounds…) extra toilet paper! Believe it or not it has happened to me before where there is no more toilet paper left in the bathroom facility and I was very happy to have brought some of my own. It sounds silly but something simple like this will definitely be handy when you’re at a festival with thousands of other people!
5) A lot of festivals have charging stations but if you want to be extra cautious I would recommend bringing one of those portable chargers! This is important because you want the battery life on your phone to last, especially while you’re snapping cute pics for insta or videotaping your favourite set 😉 plus that way you don’t have to wait to use a charging station or be away from the festival for long periods of time!
6) COME EARLY!! I can’t stress this enough! A lot of people think they can just show up and they will be let into the festival right away but that is usually not the case. Most of the time there is a line to get in and it can be very long depending on what time you arrive. There is also a mandatory bag check so that makes the line move a bit more slowly. It is definitely safer to arrive as early as you can that way you don’t risk missing any of your favourite artists! Also if you arrive early and have time to kill you can use that free time to snap cute pics or check out the food venues! Having time to explore the venue and admire the art installations is all apart of the experience 🙂
7) HAVE FUN!!! Music festivals are an amazing way to have fun, dance and be silly! Enjoy the time you have there, sometimes 3 days seems like a lot for a festival but trust me you’ll be sad when it’s over and you’ll already be counting down the days until next year when you can go again!
