Spring has officially sprung and that means one thing: warm weather has returned to bring us music festival season! Whether it’s an orchestral symphony or a reggae band, there’s nothing better than enjoying live music al fresco as long as you have some key festival essentials. Today I’m rounding up some festival must haves courtesy of Babbleboxx.
Fab Festival Must Haves
Zenni Optical Sunglasses
It wouldn’t be a music festival without sunglasses, amiright? This brand new style will make its debut at the end of the month and I like the touch of reflective flare. Zenni offers a wide range of stylish and affordable prescription eyewear and sunglasses (some starting as low as $6.95!) that is sure to go with any look in your wardrobe. Visit Zenni see this year’s festival eyewear trends, including 90s nostalgia, new Bohemian styles, trendy reflective shades and more.
I like that I can dress up these sunglasses with a floral culotte pantsuit, or dress them down with a graphic tee and shorts.
Algenist POWER Recharging Night Pressed Serum
Enjoying outdoor festivals means lots of glorious sunshine, but that can take its toll on your skin. One of my personal goals for 2018 is to take even better care of my skin, especially when it comes to repairing the damaging effects of the sun. The Algenist Pressed Serum is unique in that it is harnesses the power of a serum in a solid with an addictive scent!
The best way I can describe its scent is a touch of coconut with a tropical breeze that is not overpowering. This vegan solid serum melts into your skin to recharge fatigued skin, refining dull, uneven texture overnight. It’s available right now at ULTA.
Jockey Retro Stripe Collection
Get ready to be comfy! The Jockey Retro Stripe collection has the 80s written all over it making it a festival must have! The 100% cottons styles from the 80s are back, and I love how cool it keeps you in the heat. These undergarments have a no-dig elastic waistband to give you that cool retro vibe. Plus, the stretchy cotton moves with you during all the dancing at festivals. I think denim overalls without a top, or a loose, white linen top would go great with it! Grab your favorite styles and colors here – They are 3 for $28.50!
LumaBella Keratin Dual Touch Styler
Outdoor living in Florida = humidity = unruly hair for me. It’s something I’ve battled for a long time, however I LOVE wearing my hair straight. As the owner of naturally wavy/frizzy hair, nothing feels as luxurious as running my fingers through straightened hair. However, I have refrained from using the flat iron a lot to help maintain healthy hair. I was so excited to receive the LumaBella Keratin Straightener in my boxx.
This flat iron is unique because it has a heat sensing strip on one of the 1” ceramic plates that detects the humidity of the hair during styling. If the sensing strip detects that the heat is too high and will cause damage to your hair, the heat will adjust down to protect your hair from breakage. After passing through the dry + damaged areas of your hair, the straightener will adjust back to the temperature from you set it to initially.
The ceramic plates are also infused with keratin micro-conditioners which emit during styling (but there is no oily residue). I’ve never had a flat iron with these amazing features! I also like that you can read temperature right at the top of the flat iron. I’m tossing out my old flat irons!
Earth Shoes – Juno
Comfortable shoes are a must for dancing at festivals. I was sent a pair of Earth Shoes Juno sandals in Almond. I like that I can pair them with a Bohemian dress, or jeans, and still look cute. Earth Shoes are comfortable shoes made with water-based adhesives, vegetable tanned leathers and they have been making women’s shoes for over 40 years. You know I love gardening, and I LOVE that Earth Shoes plants a tree with every purchase, in partnership with Trees.org!
