It is time to start getting ready for those art & music festivals! The extremely popular Coachella Valley Festival (aka BEYONCE concert 😀 ) is just a few days away! If you are looking for that last-minute stand out outfit – your local thrift store might just have your back.
Check Out The Scarves!
I love an item that can be worn an unlimited amount of ways and doesn’t take up a lot of space. Thrift stores are overflowing with this versatile accessory! Find a large square scarf with a fun bold print pattern – and make it into a trendy top!
Simply fold it into a triangle then tie the ends around your back!
The larger the scarf the more dramatic the tie in the back!
If you think you would dance right out of a halter top – which is entirely possible – then there are a few other options:
Take the scarf (in its square shape) – tie one set of ends around your neck and the other set of ends around your waist. This makes for a well supported top.
Make the scarf into a fun statement head wrap or headband
– Perfect option for covering up that sweated out hairstyle!
Wear the scarf as a belt to accent your outfit
Bam! You have one item and multiple styling options!
The best part is that scarves can typically be thrifted for less than $3! The one I am wearing cost me 2 dollars – which means less money needed to shop and more money available to have a good time with friends & family! Cheers to the non budget breaking – stand out – be kind to the earth and reduce waste fashion find – YASSSSS! Isn’t that the hippie way!?!
I can almost guarantee that no one will have that same scarf pattern!
Which is something to smile about!
Just make sure you don’t wear heels to get your festival groove on – that is a sure way to get awkward stares and have yourself crying in a field somewhere 😦 ! Wear comfy sandals or sneakers. The goal is to look effortlessly cute and unleash that free spirit!
For the chilly mornings or evenings – search your local thrift store for an oversized lightweight jacket! The one I have pictured above happens to be my favorite color and matches my scarf color palette – it only cost me $5. I would also wear with a fun oversized denim jacket!
If you are like me and looking to attend Summer festivals like Lollapalooza or Afropunk – you have a lot more time to prep and have pre-loved fashion shipped right to your door! My poshmark closet is filled with festival friendly pieces and is constantly getting new inventory. A few of my offerings are pictured below – keep in mind there is only one of each ;)!
Wishing you the best of luck in building up your budget friendly festival wardrobe!!!
Have fun & much love ❤ !!!
