I haven’t been to a really great music festival in a long time. I’m old now. A crazy night to me is sitting on my couch staying up later than 10 p.m. to binge-watch Portlandia while eating 99% fat free popcorn. In a former life I was obsessed with the glam side of music festivals just as much as the music. But, I was a snob. Something where I might sweat, have to sit on the ground, or be close to strangers freaked me out. Now…fast forward to my late (late) 20s and going to Burning Man or Coachella would be my JAM! And because I’m older, wiser, and DGAF about what other people think anymore, I’d probably have a lot of fun. And, I’d wear some whacked out stuff. For now, I’ll settle for wearing my paisley pants in the classroom. But a girl can dream right? 

Burningman

I am obsessed with anything comfy and flowy. If I were going to be out in the heat, I need something that isn’t going to make me hotter. Enter the palazzo pant in a funky paisley print. I wear these on the regular because they’re so fun and light. I can almost smell the Patchouli incense (oh, wait…that’s just me), and the same goes for anything with FRINGE. I’m loving the woven bags that I’m seeing everywhere this Spring. This cross body bag shown above makes toting my goods easy. You’re supposed to pack light at these things, right? Buh bye…tote bag! Next up…the American Flag short (because my husband thinks they’re tacky). I love how rompers look on other people, but I haven’t been brave enough to actually wear one yet myself. Maybe this summer is the summer I give it a whirl? And last but not least a loud accessory or piece like this backpack OR the sunflower shorts. I’m not one for mixing prints, but I might make an exception to the rule just this once. 

What are you loving for the summer? What pieces do you think I need to finally brighten up my funeral director wardrobe? I’m trying, people! Help me get colorful!
