Lollopalooza_BCBGMaxazria_Boho_Flower Crown_What Would V Wear_Vanessa Lambert_Simon Said_Chicago Premium Outlets_13

Festival Season, i.e. Lollapalooza kicked off last weekend in Chicago. This season is bursting at the seams with a diverse collection of musical performances ranging from rock to dance music. If you have been following along you’ll probably already know that I went shopping at Chicago Premium Outlets for this very occasion only…

I knew I wanted a bohemian look hence I decided to buy an angel-sleeve tunic dress from BCBGMaxazria, and platform sandals from Michael Kors. Festival season in itself has become a major trend — thanks, to its bohemian aesthetic. Lightweight, loose-fit garments are a must, and I’m so glad that I found this dress at Chicago Premium Outlets in Aurora (be sure to check out my editorial at Simon Said’s website HERE). Not only is it lightweight but the sleeves are giving the whole look an extra “gypsy soul” spirit, wouldn’t you agree?

Lollapalooza is so fun, and I’m beyond happy that I got to attend this year even if it was just for one day! Seeing Jane’s Addiction live was probably my favorite. I wanted to shoot inside the festival, too but we were not allowed to bring in our professional camera which was actually a good thing — now that I think about it. It’s super crowded at the festival, and my husband and I did a ton of dancing together. So, we were actually happy not having to schlepp our equipment around. You know, sometimes it’s best to simply live in the moment. We just danced all night long without a care in the world…

Did you attend Lollapalooza this year? If so, who was your favorite act? Let me know by commenting below!

Much love.

    Beautiful!! Our oldest son and his friends all went to Lolla all 4 days. We stayed in Chicago this weekend right down at the Loews in case they needed us and wished now we’d gotten a ticket for ourselves. Janes Addiction, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Ellie Goulding would’ve been our picks. Just love you look for this fun festival!! Happy Monday gorgeous!!

    I love everything about this outfit! It is a little bit of boho but still has class. You look gorgeous and I love the flower crown!

    That’s great, dear V., that you went to the festival and without the camera, and danced a lot ๐Ÿ™‚ It happened at an exhibition I went, cameras were not allowed. And I did enjoy it much more! You look amazing as usual, really a vision! I loved the white outfit and the sandals, plus the flower crown! You are really very beautiful and I love your pictures, they spread positive vibes! The linkup I told you is on air today:) Thank you so much for all :)!
