Once again the mud returned to Governors Ball after one gloriously weather-perfect year in 2014, but somehow I didn’t mind a bit. Perhaps it’s just perpetual festival-going that better prepares you to look and feel stylish in any weather condition; packing that rain coat, and more importantly rain boots are essential even if the forecast doesn’t call for rain.
This year I was armed with fresh pair of Hunter Chelsea Block Heel Boots, which really saved the day on Friday when it was super muddy, and again on Saturday after a heavy dumping of rain overnight which made the ground extra squishy. I loved not having to worry about looking where I was stepping (like those who with brand new white sneakers on) and that extra bit of height made navigating the festival so easy.
On the first day I wore a rather revealing Alice McCall lace jumpsuit from Free People since it wasn’t exactly warm, yet slightly humid after the rain. She’s one of my favourite designers come festival season, because you can always count on her pieces to help you stand out from all the basic festival garb. I contrasted all the black in my look with stark purple lips, my Mackage backpack and a pair of navy blue TOMS sunglasses.
On the next day I went to Free People approach once again, with a hand embroidered black shift dress from their in-house label, paired with a woven leather cross body from Coach’s festival collection. I accessorized simply with Coach and Hermes bangles and my trusty Hunter Block Heels yet again.
That just about wraps up another year at Governors Ball! Take a closer look at two of my three festival outfits below.
