Tuesday Shoesday: Festival Chic

As summer approaches we are in prime time for festivals.  With Coachella kicking off the 2013 season where I drool, gag, lust and horror over the celebrities outfits posted all over the internet and magazines.  Then after pouring over my instagram full of friends attending Stagecoach this past weekend, I couldn’t help my excitement for the upcoming summer of Sassquatch, Beer Fests, Tastes of and Bites of, Block Parties and Food Truck Meet-Ups.  Being who I am…I wonder…what shoes best fit these occasions, and how does one achieve “Festival Chic”?

I think being Festival Chic is about rocking the things you love that you can’t wear in the dreary winter months.  Bright colors, odd patterns, fringe – all at a fraction of the size that is normally acceptable in public?  I think it’s about feeling great in something you can wear the whole time.  I say this from the personal experience at The Gorge Amphitheater where the walk to and from camping is at least a mile.  Whatever festival you are attending this summer – here are my picks for shoes.

For the hippie-chic look. Planning on spending most time on flat ground and out of the grass. Perfectly paired with a maxi skirt or dress. -Steve Madden $110


For the rustic chic look with a few color options including yellow. Great with shorts and skinny jeans. – Anthropologie $89

Classic Toms with a Boho twist – Crochet. Perfect for shorts, skinnies, leggings, maxis, minis and anything in between. – Toms $58

Sure, Birkenstock doesn’t always get a lot of love, but honestly – How can you not love the new colors that come in this Earth Momma Chic shoe? Super comfortable – you could even wear them to The Gorge! -Birkenstock $120

Happy Festivalling!
