Omigod! Omigod you guys! It’s festival week!!! Yes, the week we have waited all year for, it's finally here! I know we are all just bursting at the seams to get on the road and experience festival, but before we take off we need to prepare ourselves for the ride. After all, festival is supposed to be fun (even the packing part)! So what exactly should you pack? The essentials, obviously, but what about theme days? What can you wear to look absolutely down right fabulous? I’ll let you in on the scoop!
Tacky Tourist Thursday
With our festival theme revolving around plans, how could we not have this theme day?! Pull out those floral shirts and sunglasses, we’re going on vacation! There is a lot of variation you can have with a theme day like this one. Give your character a backstory. Maybe they are on vacation to bird watch, so you carry around a book about birds. Maybe your character is obsessed with not getting sunburnt, so you have on a comical amount of sunscreen. Honestly, the possibilities are endless.
Dress for the Flight Friday
Whether you prefer to dress to the nines or just want to don some comfy sweats, this theme day is great for everyone. Bring your most fashionable outfit to wow the crowds or prioritize yourself and wear your cushy clothes. Whatever you decide to wear, you will be 100% prepared to take flight!
Parting is such sweet sorrow, so why not celebrate the awesome time you had at festival with this last theme day! Wear the merch you got at festival, from cool socks to fun t-shirts. It’s like school spirit day, only this time there's ten times the people.
Can’t wait to see you,
