Pitchfork Music Festival Lineup 2017

It’s good, but I still think Capitol Hill Block Party knocked it out of the park for me this week!

Lollapalooza 2016

Every year Coachella’s the first to come out with their lineup and everyone loses their minds over it, but really – the best lineup I feel like always comes from Lollapalooza. This is just phenomenal.

Pitchfork 2016

This lineup poster is really deceiving because Miguel and Sufjan Stevens are near the bottom when they should clearly be a little closer to the top. Turns out, it’s just in alphabetical order. Way to step outside of the box this year and do what no other music festival lineups ever do.

Lollapalooza 2015 Street Style

I was invited by a friend to go to Lollapalooza this year using an artist wristband for Tove Lo and it was the best invitation I had ever gotten. Festivals like Lollapalooza cost hundreds of dollars to attend when you include the ticket, the flights to Chicago, and the accommodations. I had never been to Chicago before and I was so excited to go until I realized I had a work event the same weekend. It was the biggest let down, but this was the closest I’d ever gotten to something like this and I don’t doubt that it won’t happen again. Maybe the next invitation will be even better! Street style at music festivals is one of my favorite things to cover because it’s not just about what you wear to the event, it’s about being comfortable and wearing something that is somewhat functional. Here’s how these attendees did Lollapalooza this past weekend and they’re basically nailing it:

Introducing: The Wonut

When I was growing up, desserts used to be so simple. You had a choice of cake, pie, cookies, or ice cream. That was…pretty much it. These days, people are getting really fancy with their concoctions. Don’t get me wrong. I love the idea that you can put two things you love separate to make a dessert, but are things getting a little out of hand?

If you didn’t figure it out already, the wonut is a waffle donut. Just looking at it makes my stomach hurt because I know that it is full of all sorts of unhealthy-ness. It looks like the wonut has already hit it big in Chicago, but if you’re looking for a detailed step-by-step on how the wonut is made – Thrillist is laying it all out for you here.

Take Me There:

It’s somewhat of a huge change for me to not be living in a city right now. I’ve always thought of myself as a “city girl,” but not a permanent one. I’ve kept an open mind and now when I travel to the city (San Francisco) I appreciate it more and see it as a weekend treat. I’m not sure if I always took advantage of that when I was living in Seattle. This photo above is neither San Francisco nor Seattle! It’s actually Chicago, which is fitting since I reached out to my friend over there today and was thinking of her. I’ve never been to the city, but I just know that I would love it.

Here is to future trips!
