Eight day of our Coast to Coast, second day spent in Chicago and first day of Lollapalooza: the outfit I wanted to wear was the one you see in the first photos with Stefanel shirt and Gap shorts, but then I added Isabel Marant sneakers (a clever buy for this trip) instead of Miu Miu starfish sandals (they were not the best idea for a music festival with thousands of people). I then also opted for a smaller bag, choosing the new Phillip Lim red baby you’ve already seen in New York 🙂
Shea and I were invited to Lollapalooza by Gap to share our photos on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook: the first day we didn’t have the media pass for our professional cameras but Iphone worked well anyway. Gap also had a booth where you could make tshirts, and on Friday night we listened to The Black Keys, Black Sabbath and M83 with a beer in one hand, thousands of people around us and all the skyscrapers of Chicago skyline as a frame. Not bad at all.

Ottavo giorno del nostro Coast to Coast, secondo giorno passato a Chicago e primo giorno di Lollapalooza: l’outfit che avevo inizialmente pensato di indossare era quello che vedete nelle prime foto con camicia Stefanel e shorts Gap, a cui ho poi aggiunto le sneaker di Isabel Marant (un acquisto decisamente intelligente per questo viaggio) al posto dei sandaletti di Miu Miu (che in effetti non erano l’idea più furba per un festival di musica con decine di migliaia di persone). Ho poi optato per una borsa più piccola, scegliendo la nuova Phillip Lim rossa che avete già visto a New York 🙂
Io e Shea siamo state invitate al Lollapalooza da Gap per pubblicare i nostri scatti su Instagram, Twitter e Facebook: purtroppo il primo giorno non avevamo il pass per portare la Reflex all’interno, ma l’iphone come sempre ha fatto il suo lavoro. Gap aveva anche allestito uno spazio per personalizzare le tshirt, e venerdi sera abbiamo ascoltato The Black Keys, I Black Sabbath e M83 con una birra in mano, decine di migliaia di persone attorno a noi ed i grattacieli dello skyline di Chicago a fare da cornice. Non male no?

  • What a perfect summer music festival look! I especially love your layered necklaces, and I think switching from sandals to sneakers was definitely a good call for the festival.

    CIAO! a parte le isabel marant e la borsina rossa il tuo look non ti rende giustizia, glli short sono a vita alta e hanno un taglio un po sfiga e la camicia è abbastanza bruttina…Shea riesce ad essere molto chic e glamour cn nulla ..tu ti rovini facilmente 🙁
