Summer Music Festivals are going strong and we are lucky enough that Forecastle Festival is a summer music festival that’s held in our own backyard. Our favorite part of summer music festivals is not only the music: the fashion show on the field is as much a feast for the eyes as the music is for the ears.
The Forecastle Festival is billed as one of the “Top 15 Outdoor Festivals in the Country” and is attended by more than 30,000 people. The layout was perfect, and made it easy to music-hop among all the artists without ever feeling rushed or crowded. And speaking of the crowd… we reveled in the fab fashion and unique style. It was a non-stop show for the senses from the moment we arrived, and the playful attitude and fun-seeking attendees were entertaining and entertained. Everyone was at Forecastle just to have fun and everyone was in a great mood — be sure to put it on your calendar for next year!
One fashion theme of the day was adorable dresses and wearable shoes, whether boots to avoid the mud or tenny shoes to be comfortable. Wearing a cute dress, vintage or new, neon or subdued, made each of these girls stand out in the crowd.
Hannah Margaret Allen’s neon caught our eye and her blog does too: HannahMargaretAllen.blogspot.com
Anna Roeder, wearing a vintage floral dress and her artsy blog PrettyTheFool.blogspot.com is just as striking.
Kristen from New York City looking chic.
Another notable trend was flowers in your hair. Whether bringing out boho vibes or expressing a fun-loving music attitude, a crown of flowers was an accessory of choice to add color and and a smile.

Marnie, who was visiting from Free People in Nashville, perfectly matched her dip-dye hair to her barrette!
Michelle’s wearing black & white maxi skirt by American Apparel. The crop top keeps it hip, and the maxi skirt means no worrying about holding down your skirt as your dance the night away!
So, as you see, there is no one summer music festival style. Whatever style you enjoy goes, just keep it comfortable and fun!
