As I’m sure we’re all well aware, judging by the exponentially high rate of flower crowns on our Instagram feeds or what have you: festival season is very much upon us. In the past I’ve been to Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza; in the future I have Coachella dreams; but this summer I’m THRILLED to be experiencing my very first Capitol Hill Block Party (CHBP) in Seattle (and Squamish Valley festival in Canada…but that’s a story for another day).
CHBP is a festival that takes over part of the Capitol Hill neighborhood in late July for a weekend of music, street food and general debauchery. More acts were released for the lineup this week, and I couldn’t help myself but to make a playlist to get amped.
In combination with the unnecessary amount of “justified festival purchases” i’ve been making at the thrift store I think I’m on the way to being ready for a summer full of music.

Coachella is a festival I’ve had on my radar for a while. While I’ve been to Lollapalooza and Bonnaroo, I know the feel of a west coast festival would be much different and it’s definitely something I plan to experience (hopefully sooner rather than later).
Coachella is a celebration of Art, Music and sunny California. It’s also widely recognized for the style that is exhibited by it’s goers; I might even venture to say that it sets the standard for what people will be wearing for the duration of festival season.
My fashion picks are a mashup of hard and soft pieces that I could definitely see myself rocking during the weekend long celebration, as well as for the rest of the summer. My favorites are probably the jewelry from Catbird, the NSF Patchwork Jeans I spotted on Shopbop, and the Steve Madden leopard Birkenstock style sandal.
To make the envisioning process a little easier, here’s a Spotify playlist of most of the artists playing at Coachella! Hopefully you’ll discover some new music along with loving some already favorites.
