BONNAROO 2015- IT'S A WRAP!

Cynthia Simpson

It's the last day of Bonnaroo and as much as I am looking forward to heading back to NY, I will certainly miss the great people, food and live music that I was able to experience in these past few days. 

My husband Val, shows off his florescent side.

Twenty One Pilots gave a unique performance that I would never forget. They surfed the crowd while playing the drums and sang in perfect key while playing the piano. They were so energetic and used the whole stage while they performed. It was by far one of the most exciting and inspirational moments at Bonnaroo.

Bonnaroo 2015 was a blast! If you have never been, I would highly recommend you rent a RV, drive down to Tennessee and experience it yourself  in 2016. 

DAY THREE -BONNAROO I LOVE U

Day three at Bonnaroo was pretty hot but that did not stop the fun nor the fashion! I went backstage to watch some of my favorite artist perform and admire their Bonnaroo attire.  This day was everything I could ask for and more.

Jack Antonoff really knows how to look cool in this Tennessee sun. You can never go wrong with colorful laces and a little pocket exposure.

BONNAROO 2015- DAY 1

Glass Animals put on an amazing performance tonight! These heart throbs are loved by their fans and go above and beyond to connect with whom ever they meet. I ran into them early in the day and appreciated how kind and considerate they were to everyone. Wearing cotton shirts and classic jeans, these English gentlemen stood out in more ways than one.

I was able to catch up with DMAs after their invigorating performance. They came prepared for the heat in Tennessee, wearing light weight, colorful tees. 

Benjamin Booker, looked so innocent in his blue button up and Burton backpack.

Nolan, Benjamin Booker's Tour Manager, is fresh to death with this Rihanna tank and Nike kicks. I loved his beautifully detailed body art that went along with his chill disposition.

Unlocking The Truth are the coolest kids I have ever met. They tour all over the globe and still manage to attend school in their home town of  Brooklyn NY. Malcolm's red streaked hair made me think about adding some color to my curls.

How cute is she! I had to take a quick picture of her Bonnaroo outfit. 

My rings from By Boe, completed my Bonnaroo festival look. It's all about stacking different shapes and sizes.   

Valery, my sweet husband, runs hot so he began to sweat the moment we left the hotel. I am always impressed with his sense of style. Who knew he had a fishing hat?  I can't wait to see what he wears tomorrow! 

12 ESSENTIALS FOR BONNAROO 2015

This week I'm heading south to attend the Bonnaroo music festival! For those of you that are not familiar, Bonnaroo is a fun filled, four-day, multi-stage camping festival, held on a 700-acre farm in Manchester, Tennessee. You can see performances from amazing artists along side thousands of other music enthusiasts. The festival also features craftsmen and artisans selling cool items, delicious food and drinks. There is a comedy tent, silent disco, cinema and a ferris wheel. There is also an iconic central fountain that is painted every year by a new artist. Bonnaroo here I come!  

One thing is for sure, Tennessee is HOT... like really hot in June, so packing clothes that are comfy and light is key. Here are my 12 essential tips you should bring that will keep you cool and stylish while you're at the farm. 

1. Sneakers - Bring shoes that you can comfortably stand in for 12 hours. You should bring a second pair or some rain boots in case it pours and gets all muddy. I love these Vans printed sunflower sneakers.

2. Backpack - Wearing a backpack will allow you to carry more and have better mobility through the crowds. Herschel's line of bags come in cute designs and colors. 

3. Sunscreen - Did I mention that it's hot in Tennessee? Protect your skin from the intense rays with Neutrogena spray on sunscreen. 

4. Lip balm - The heat can really dry out your skin, including your lips. I have full lips so there is no way I will leave home without some lip armor. I like Nivea's line of lip butter. It goes on smooth and hydrates instantly .  

5. Sunglasses - Bring two just in case you lose one. Lucluc has a great selection of shades that will keep you looking cool no matter what! 

6. Face/hand wipes- Between the all sweating and using those porta potties, face/hand wipes are a necessity. Sephora face wipes keeps your skin clean and looking radiant. 

7. Camera- When your phone dies you will wish you had your camera to take that once in a lifetime moment. 

8. Shorts- The great thing about  bringing shorts is you can wear the same pair pretty much the whole time just be sure to change your top! The trick is to find ones that won't ride up your crotch. These high waisted denim shorts will be your best bet.

9. Hat - A brimmed hat will protect you from the sun and complete your cozy chic look. 

10. Tank top- If you're like me and hate wearing bras, a bathing suite top is the way to go. Bring a cute tank top to use as a cover up if you don't want to walk around in just your bikini. Madewell is my go to for tanks and v-neck tees. 

11. Scarf - Scarves are so versatile. You can use it in the day to wrap your hair up away from your face and at night, as a shawl to keep you warm when it gets chilly. 

12. Face mist - I tend to have dry skin so I like to use Mac cosmetics face mist to keep my face looking dewy and moisturized throughout the day.
