If there's one word the majority of my pals would use to describe me, it's "sassy." Fittingly that the nickname "Sassy Stacker" just rolls off the tongue, no? So, it was hardly a surprise when I rolled up to the first day of Outside Lands in my latest new purchase - my sassy tee. As soon as I saw this sucker online, I added it to my cart and hit express shipping, please. All jokes aside, I can always count on Lulus to hook a girl up and have just what I need when it's time to hunt for the perfect festival pieces. Each year at OSL, I go for easy, casual comfort. Because I knew I'd be running around all day, I decided to slip on a pair of my trusty ole distressed denim, an easy breezy tee, a flannel for layering purposes, beanie (my hat-wear choice of the day) and some slip ons to take me from point a to point b. All in all, almost everything, aside from my new tee, was just mixed and matched from something I already owned in my closet. Don't you love it when it all just comes together like that?

And because no Outside Lands recap is complete without a little bit about the festival itself, here's a quick rundown of who I saw and what I loved: First Aid Kit (second time seeing those beautiful ladies - do see them if you ever get the chance), Glass Animals (LOVED them at Coachella this past year), Leon Bridges (smooth and soulful sounds perfect for winding or getting down), and Mumford & Sons (need I say more?). I was super bummed to miss Chet Faker again and D'Angelo - but sometimes, decisions must be made and you've gotta play it by ear. I'm confident I'll catch the two at some point in the future - so... no regrets.
Stay tuned for days two and three, heading to your screens soon!
