How to Plan Outfits for a Music Festival

As I now only have a few days left until Firefly Music Festival 2017 I have started planning my outfits.  While you’re camping at a music festival it can be extremely difficult to keep everything organized.  Furthermore, planning these outfits ahead of the festival takes time and you may not know what accessories to bring.  You may forget what goes with what, especially when you’re looking forward to having fun and don’t want to spend forever getting ready.  Two of my favorite things to do are plan and organize though.  This is how I chose to plan and organize my outfits for the festival.

The Method to the Madness

What Goes Into Planning

As you can see, I put the outfits on a hanger.  I decided what jewelry I wanted to go with each outfit and placed that on the hanger as well.  If you have any original packaging for your jewelry it’s super helpful to keep everything together.  It also prevents tangles.  These pictures don’t have to be pretty, they are just a reminder of what goes together.  I put them in my notes app and added anything missing from the picture in a checklist below.  This helps me remember how I want to style them.  It also serves as a great packing list.

When I go to pack my clothing I will make sure to keep everything organized and together.  In this bag will be any beauty products as well, that way when I go to get ready everything is in one place.  I will have a separate bag for the other things I need to bring.  It’s the best way I have learned to prepare myself for festivals and trips like these.

Let me know in the comments below what your tips are for deciding outfits and packing for music festivals.

Twitter Make Up Trends

I spend way too much time on Twitter admiring the looks of every single talented person sharing their make up.  Yet I think it’s amazing that we don’t have to look to magazines anymore for beauty inspiration.  I loved that when I was younger, but now I can get make up inspiration without going out of my way to find sources.  I’ve seen a lot of these types of looks on twitter lately:

This is the half cut-crease (if that’s what they decided the name to be). Morgan, featured here, actually started this trend herself.

I have seen so many looks with colorful liner placed overtop eyeshadow in the crease. I think it looks beautiful and really stands out!

I love seeing other art forms, or even every day items, inspire new looks. Ciera is one of my favorite make up artists on Twitter and she took inspiration from one of my favorite Paramore albums, Brand New Eyes.
