Sunday's Spring Equinox not only kicked off Spring, but also the official countdown to festival season. Whether you're going to Coachella, Bonnaroo, or Burning Man, fasten your seat belts because you're in for an adventure. We've rounded up an A-Z countdown of some of what we're looking forward to this season.
A is for ABBEY JACKET
Was there ever a jacket more perfect for festivals? We don't think so.
B is for BEERS & BACKPACKS,
If only you could hide the beer in the backpack, now that would be ideal. #wishfulthinking
C is for CROCHET & CROWDSURFING.
Festival season is the next best thing to Halloween, when it's socially acceptable to be in public half naked. Which means it's totally okay to rock crochet with nothing underneath. ADDED BONUS: the loose knit is basically a built-in ventilation.
shop crochet here.
This girl is so stoked. . .
D is for DBLANC & DANCING
Dance all night in the Sahara Tent; and the next morning, when your eyes scream "I might still be drunk," grab your D'Blanc shades and party on.
E is for EVERLY JACKET
Because buttery soft leather feels nice to the touch when your senses are heightened, if you know what we mean ;)
F is for FANNY PACKS & FRINGE
We know fanny packs bring visions of hammer pants and neon (which we fully support btw), but for festival season we've made something a bit more chic. There's nothing better than cruising festival grounds hands free (makes it easier to double fist your drinks), which is why fanny packs are our handbag of choice. Pair it with a fringe jacket and you're good to go.
G is for GODDESSES & GANJA
We love seeing all our festival goddesses in Cleobella, tag us to show how you're styling your festival looks this year!
Ganja- because, what's a festival without it?
Nobody wants to be that girl who passed out- not cute. So take care of yourself! Remember to bring a re-usable bottle and fill up regularly- Desert sun + alcohol + dancing is a easy recipe for dehydration!
I is for INDIO & INSTAGRAM
Shout out to Indio- home of the best festival on earth!
Instagram - because let's be honest, you planned your outfit strategy around getting the money shot for social media.
J is for JANIS JOPLIN
She's our rock n' roll goddess and festival muse!
K is for KIMONO
Because it's just a lot more fun to frolick around in a flowy kimono.
L is for LAYERS
At 2pm when it's 110 degrees in the desert and you're sweating your ass off, it's hard to believe you'll ever be cold again. But once that sun goes down and the wind picks up, you'll be wishing you would have worn something that covered more than just your nipples. Make sure to pack layers- we recommend our Rona Kimono or Olivia Kimono. If it's too bulky to fit in your bag, tie the sleeves of your jacket in a knot around the strap of your bag.
M is for MUSIC
In case you forgot that festivals are about music, not instagram.
N is for NIP SLIP
Again, we repeat: Festivals are socially acceptable ground for nudity. So #FREETHENIPPLE, who knows the next time they'll see sunlight.
O is for OVER THE MOON
This is a shameless plug for our Spring Collection which we designed with festival in mind. ;) So get to shoppin'
shop Over the Moon here.
P is for POOL PARTIES
We can't wait to get weird in the pool at our VANESSA MOONEY X CLEOBELLA X D'BLANC party house!
Q is for QUEEN
All hail the queen of Coachella: Kate Bosworth.
R is for ROMPER
Not the most practical choice because you'll have to get full naked in a porter potty, but being practical is boring. You know what's not boring? Our embroidered Caroline Romper.
S is for SNAKE PRINT & SAHARA TENT
Get sweaty in the Sahara Tent wearing our lightweight snake print. Plus, the Aida Romper has pockets to hide your secrets for an added bonus.
shop snake print here.
T is for TENT (camping)
Okay we know it doesn't sound fun to wake up in a tent to blazing hot sun, a little hungover and covered in dirt. But we swear, tent camping is an experience of a lifetime. Just embrace the grime and roll with it. Bring some indian tapestries and an outdoor rug to set the right vibes.
U is for UNIVERSAL
Music is universal. We love festivals for their ability to bring people from all different cultures together to enjoy a common passion; this kind of shared energy is powerful! It's what makes the festivals so magical and keeps us coming back for more.
V is for VIRGINS
Get your mind out of the gutter!! We are talking about festival virgins- our owners Angela and Jim have never been to Coachella because they are always in Bali in April, but they're popping their festival cherry this year.
W is for WANDER WITH LOVE
Wherever festival season may take you this year, remember to always lead with your heart & wander with love.
