Festival Fashion or How To Survive The Heat

It's festival season right now, and everything from Pride (this weekend in most large cities) to Music Festivals and Summer Fairs are happening. Personally I'm going to a Pride celebration this weekend, and this is pretty close to what I plan on wearing. There are obviously going to be a few changes but you'll see those in the up coming pictures.
Festival Fashion

First I really recommend a light tank top, this one from Madewell would work perfectly, I have it in Navy and I adore it. Then I recommend some cutoffs, these from PacSun are pretty damn cute, plus bright colors are always a win. Then for shoes I recommend Converse, the more beat up the better so you don't have to worry about them being ruined. Alternatively Hunter boots are also a really good choice, especially if you'll be somewhere muddy. The Jewelry pictured is from H&M so no links there since you can't online shop in the states, but I do recommend hitting up your local H&M or F21 for some cheap and cheerful jewelry. The Bag is from Olsenboye, and is actually the bag I'll be carrying, but I bought it a few years ago. This one is very similar though.

Speaking of bags, I thought I'd show you really quick what will be in mine.

What's In My Festival Bag

Smart Water, it's stupidly expensive for water, but I am obsessed. I'll be picking up some bottles the day of. Kate Somerville Protect SPF 55 Serum Sunscreen for my face, Alba Botanica Sunscreen for my body or I'll be cooked, Smith's Rosebud Salve Tube, it's necessary trust me. Hand Sanitizer, because do I need to explain public bathrooms to you? Emi-Jay Hair Ties, I adore these and must always have an extra, and snacks. 

Are you or Have you attended any Festivals or events this summer? I know my outfit is pretty tame, but it's merely a base to build off of.
