Festival Fashion

If you’re following me on Instagram, you probably saw that Hallie and I went to Governor’s Ball this past Saturday! Gov Ball is a 3-day music festival on Randall’s Island here in NYC. Since we’ve both been traveling a lot lately, we opted for a single-day pass instead of a 3-day. We got to see Disclosure, The Strokes, Jack White, Naked & Famous, and Skrillex. It was a really fun day of great music, Summer Shandys, and lots of sunshine!

MZ Wallace sent over their Marlena backpacks which turned out to be the perfect festival bags. Hands-free is an absolute must! Sure, you could use a cross-body bag, but with all of the festival necessities I packed, I needed some extra room! Hallie and I even took over their Instagram from the festival. Check out the photos here!

For my full outfit details, a peek inside my backpack, and a chance to win your own, keep on reading…

I actually ended up changing into these sneakers before we went to the festival. Figured I’d give my feet a little extra TLC!

And inside my backpack…

Marlena Backpack | Deodorant | Kleenex (Doubles as TP if they run out. Gross, but true.) | Hand Sanitizer | Band-Aids | Dry Shampoo | Advil | Blotting Sheets | Wet Ones | Hair Tie | Chapstick | External Charger | Sunglasses | Gum | Sunscreen (Clinique City Block for Face, Supergoop for Body) | Snacks (I packed Larabars & Almonds) | Mini Wallet with Cards, Cash, ID, & Metrocard

You guys know how much I love my MZ Wallace Bags — I use my Large Metro Tote for traveling and anytime I need to carry a bunch of stuff with me (i.e. like everyday). I am always toting my Small Metro Tote to the gym and while running errands. And now I’ve got my Marlena Backpack for whenever I need to keep my hands free!

MZ Wallace actually just launched a brand new style — The Medium Metro Tote! I’m dying to get one of my own, but I was trying it on in the store and it’s literally perfect! A longer strap for your shoulder and the perfect size for every single day.

The team has so generously offered to gift yet another bag to you lovely readers! Any bag of your choice from their website. Good luck! 🙂

    One of my friends went to all three days of the festival and she was so happy she decided to start with sneakers! I loved living vicariously through all the photos and I can’t wait to get the full recap later this week. Your outfit was perfect!

    Such a great festival outfit! Sneakers were a great idea – I always end up in comfy shoes at Coachella.
