I think I have been to at least one music festival every year for the past 7 years. It's now embedded in my summer ritual and always provides me with my fondest memories. There is a different energy to each of them and my precious memories come from the people I spend them with. The Wayhome festival is approaching which is why I decided to do a styling post of my festival vibe I will be bringing with me. I am so excited to go to this festival, not only because I will be seeing the music legend and fellow environmentalist Neil Young (life made!) But because I am going with a group of incredible, wild, free-spirited, loving, mystical women who love music just as much as I do. Back in February while I was out of town visiting my sister, my friend Sara texted us all informing us that she already purchased our tickets, we were going!
For this look I teamed up with two of my most creative and inspiring friends. Alison Sharp came up with a makeup and hair look and even took all the photos! (of course she is multitalented and the best girl to spend the day with). I called up Jordan the night before we were planning the last minute shoot and asked if I could borrow something, knowing that she is setting up a booth at Wayhome and would have some fun festival goodies to choose from. She decided to make a bodysuit and whipped one up the next morning. If you are going to the fest you NEED to stop by her tent, she has so many fun festival pieces she is creating exclusively for the fest. This hot pink daisy bodysuit will be among them and its just so much fun to style with, there's unlimited options!
For the hair and makeup vibe Alison sums up the look perfectly:
The makeup is all about summer heat with a major focus on the eyes. Splashes of pinks and corals (MAC pigments in Magenta Madness and Neo-Orange) in all the right places and loads of waterproof mascara (it is summer after all...who knows when a spontaneous water balloon fight will break out). Fresh hydrated skin with a touch of gloss on the lips and you're ready to get your groove on! Hair is a whimsy of waves and braids and effortless flow. Get some of your favourite sea salt spray (Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray) in there and fish tail braid to your hearts content...and then maybe roll around in the grass for that extra summery effect.
