So, you’re going to a Bohemian Festival and you don’t know what to wear or take?… Get your pen and paper ready to make a checklist or better yet, save some time and print my below checklist. Way down at the bottom of my post.

The first thing you will need to add to your Bohemian festival checklist is a ticket for the festival if you have to buy it in advance. Usually, you can just pay at the gate and there are many free ones that you can attend as well. Don’t forget to take along your Visa Clear prepaid card. I never take cash to festivals. Your ticket and Visa Clear prepaid card are not fashion essentials but I’m throwing them in there anyhow. Don’t be like me and forget your ticket and/or prepaid card at home, especially if you live 2 hours away. Now, do you see why I’m throwing it in my list? And #1 at that. FYI If you live near historic Brunswick, Georgia mark the date, December 5, 2014! The first Friday of every month brings live music and many other events. Take your camera along which is the second item to add to your list and which is also not a fashion essential, but it’s a must-have to take along. Historic downtown Brunswick has the most beautiful homes and buildings dating back to the 19th-century Victorian era and you will want to explore the town before and after the live musical event. First Friday event address: Newcastle Street & Gloucester Streets, Downtown Brunswick.

The third thing you will want to take along to your bohemian festival is your over-sized sunglasses. Now we’re getting to the fashion essentials. You can find big oversized sunglasses almost anywhere and I even found a cute pair at Peepers when I was searching for some reading glasses.

Next up you will need some comfy boho chic boots. If you are crafty, you can take your old boots and upcycle them to give them the boho-chic look. If you aren’t, there are some great Etsy shops that sell upcycled boho-chic boots. They do an amazing job at taking a plain pair of boots and turning them into boho-chic magic. Most average around $200 upcycled or new.

Next up you will need a boho chic floppy hat. You can’t go to a music festival without a floppy hat. Unheard of :). I love big floppy hats because they seem to add charm to any boho chic outfit and can be worn with just about anything imaginable. Target has a great looking Mossimo® Floppy Hat for $16.99 but, sadly, they’re sold out online. Be sure to check them out on your next visit to Target.

You will want to deck out with your favorite boho chic jewelry to wear to your festival and I recommend checking out Etsy for all of your boho chic jewelry needs. If you sign up for Etsy and make a purchase using my link, I will receive buyer credit. Etsy. Amazon has the cutest boho chic vintage inspired watches for under $10. Be sure to add one to your boho chic jewelry collection so you’ll be on time for your festival.

If you don’t already have a boho chic fringe purse, I suggest going thrifting. I can {almost} always find fringe purses when I shop at thrift stores in our surrounding towns. If you want to put more money into your purse, I found a sweet fringe purse at $228.00.

Now, your boho chic outfit. Mix it up with bright and bold colors. You will be outside more than likely so you will need a warm cardigan and a fringe sweater. Or a fringe cardigan and floral sweater. You’ll then want to top off your outfit with some cute flair jeans. You will be able to find your perfect outfit at I’m recommending this site again because it’s one of my favorites. They have something for everyone and they completely satisfy my inner hippie.

I never leave home without my chap-stick or lip-gloss. Also not a fashion essential but a health & beauty must have. If I’m going to be outdoors in the chilly weather elements, my lips tend to get dry unless I drench them in my favorite lip gloss and or chap-stick.

The last thing I recommend for your bohemian festival is a headband. When you take your hat off, you’re going to want to have a cute hair headband in place. I have a Boho Bandeau Giveaway that’s ending at midnight tonight so if you haven’t entered yet, be sure you do. The only entry is to leave a comment. Nothing more, nothing less. If you are creative you could make your own headband for the festival.

Have I left anything out that you feel is a fashion essential? Please let me know and I’ll add it to my list.
