Now that you have the essentials to looking en trend at a music fest this summer, we have a few must have items you can not go to a music fest with out and would have probably forgotten if not for us!.  You're welcome...

Powder Sunscreen-  What?  Yup this is real and really great.  I swear by it.  I first discovered mineral powdered sunscreen years ago from a friend with flawless skin at the beach..ie no tell tale grease slick from a facial sunscreen.  Then I wore it everyday in India and viola...no burn and no goopiness just beautifully protected skin.

Speaking of sunscreen your poor lips need love too!  Those little lines around your lips are not just for smokers ladies...they are from age and the sun.  Super Goop (not Gwynth Paltrow Goop) but the brand has incredible products.  We love their hand cream/spf and sheer face sunscreen too. But their lip balm in a tube with SPF 30 takes the cake!

A fanny pack has come a long way from this....

Keep your belongings safe and chicly put away with the new gen of fanny packs.  This one is fanny-tastic.  (see what we did there?)  Drop your cash, id , supergoop, powder sunscreen and phone in...hands free and shoulder free cuteness.

But wait?  You're in the middle of a fest taking a boat load of selfies and hopefully some pics of the bands and your phone says 10% left but there is another 5 hours of music and fun to go...whats a girl to do?  

Grab this insanely cute mobile charger from the cutest girls in the world at Ban.do.  Charges your phone in lightning speed up to 80%.  Thats 80% more snapchats and selfies people.  And its so cute, so theres that.

And how can you look impossibly put together with literally NO effort?  A great hat. We wear hats daily and often get a googley eyed at just the mention of a new Maison Michel.  

We love every hat Janessa Leone makes and they look impecably perfect with a smidgen of boho chic meets city chic vibe and covers your whole gorgeous face.   

Not into it?  This Edie straw cutie from Nasty Gal should do the trick.  

So where every you are going this summer and what ever music fest you attend...don't forget the real essentials.  Things We Heart style.  

PS we take care of you...will you take care of us?  pass us along to all your friends and family?  thanks lovers!
