I'm officially in Dallas and having a wonderful time! Although I've spent my life in (relatively) small towns, there's just something that makes me feel right at home in a big city - I love it!

I've been drooling over all the festival photos and wishing I was at Coachella - truly, I mean who doesn't want to take a picture in front of that fabulous ferris wheel (insert little monkey with hands covering eyes). 

So, I decided to create my own festival look - because I'm trying to hit up some festivals nearby (like the Neon Desert Music Festival) and I obviously want to be prepared :) Have you guys checked out Khalid's music? I listen to "Location" almost every morning -- he's from El Paso! He's part of the lineup for this festival. Aaaand so is Nelly. I basically want to relive my junior high days --> Ride Wit Me, Hot In Herre lol

Here it is -- a Free People dress I've been dying to get my hands on! Not saying this wouldn't look great on a blonde, but I think this mix of colors is meant for a brunette. I paired it with both boots and flats because we all know that 3 hours in, none of us want to have heels on anymore, even if they're boots. And, I could live in hats - in fact I wish it was socially acceptable to wear them to work because I totally would. Round Ray-Ban sunglasses are my jam and I've been loving chokers - I actually got this one from American Eagle and it was super affordable (the one I linked up is too)! 

I've linked up the items I'm wearing below. Simply click on the image and you'll be able to purchase the various items I'm wearing in the pictures above. If you recreate this festival look... aaaand go to a festival, tag me on insta (@somewear_southwest) - even if you don't go to a festival - I want to see how fabulous you look!!
