Suddenly around the end of Spring, tons of events start coming around -- like graduations and bridal showers, and they often require dressing up. I like to buy a few fun yet modest dresses that cover all these occasions. This poppy pleated midi dress is a perfect example of a versatile dress. I've already worn it to chaperone Prom and to a Burberry and Fresh Skin Care beauty event at Four Seasons Seattle. With the bright dress, I stayed with neutral accessories and added some sparkly pep in my step with jewel sandals.

When shopping for Sasquatch! Music Festival, I was on the hunt for combat boots to pair with this paisley dress. Since it's a mini dress, I wanted more edgy and chunky footwear to balance out the look. At the same time, I was a little nervous buying fashionable boots because they often rub or are uncomfortable when worn for long periods of time, and ain't nobody got time for that at a festival. Enter these classic Timberland boots, which were a godsend both in aesthetics and comfort! See my other festival outfits here and here.

Speaking of music festivals, Capitol Hill Block Party just announced the schedule! This year will be Husband and my 7th CHBP together (I've covered the last 4 on this blog)! It's our favorite festival because it was one of our first dates, and it's in the neighborhood where we now live. We're SUPER excited for this year's lineup, especially for ODESZA, CHVRCHES, and MØ.

Festival Style: Off-the-Shoulder White Dress

Chicwish dress
Gorge Amphitheater

Banana Republic fringe suede bag (similar)
Timberland "Savin Hill" boots (on sale!)

I wore this off-the-shoulder white dress on the first day of Sasquatch! Music Festival while roaming around the festival grounds. It's an easy, flowy festival look, especially when paired with fringe. For nighttime, I changed into this long-sleeve print dress because I wanted to be able to raise my hands and dance without the constriction of something off-the-shoulder. ;) Priorities!

These "Savin Hill" boots from Timberland are the second pair of shoes I brought. I wore the Classic Premium Timbs at night, and just like all their boots, these are so cute and comfortable! The last thing you want at a music festival is to worry about your footwear... I didn't have to break in the shoes at all -- they didn't rub, and my feet were never sore. Plus, I personally like wearing closed-toe shoes to festivals because they're weatherproof, they can shield your poor feet from getting stomped on, and they keep the dirt/dust out.

When I went to Sasquatch! Music Festival, I knew I had to pack this flowy print dress - the lace-up front, tassel tie, and open back are fun details that make it unique, especially with a peek of the triple straps from this bralette. I wore the dress at night because the long sleeves offered more coverage from the breeze.

As for my hair, I did baby Chun Li-buns because it's an easy style (took literally a minute) and kept hair out of my face when it got windy.

For music festivals, comfortable footwear is also key, since you're on your feet for hours. I loved that these classic Timberland boots went perfectly with this look! They're cute, they kept the dirt out and are waterproof, and even more importantly, they were so comfy! I wore them all day and my feet never ached. (Sizing tip: go a half size down.)
