I’m super excited to say I’m leaving for Chicago tomorrow to one of the world’s most famous and iconic music festivals, Lollapalooza!
It’s my first visit and I’ve torn the internet apart for must-dos, must- knows and must-buys in the windy city. So among other things, Chicago’s most famous for:
1. The Chicago Bulls, so must buy a jersey for my Basketball fan friends.
2. Amazing watering holes and inventive food – a pub crawl is definitely in order.
3. The fabulous street style- People love layering here and can get super creative, from what I hear… I can’t wait to snap it all up and absorb the sartorial culture of Chic-ago.
Speaking of fashion, I’m also looking to shop a lot. I didn’t plan this trip so I find myself in that dreadful, “l don’t have anything music festival-esque to wear!” situation. Oh well, I know where my first stop will be- Gap, ofcourse! The summer 2014 collection is spot on for fun, sunny days at the park and I for one, can’t think of a better way to spend my first afternoon there…shopping!
It’s fitting then, that Gap is also the only fashion sponsor- partner for the Lollapalooza Festival, taking place at Grant park. The 3 day line-up (Aug 1, 2 and 3) line-up looks amazing with headliners such as Eminem, Kings of Leon, Calvin Harris, Hardwell, Duke Dumont, Arctic Monkeys and Foster The People. Wow! You can’t blame me for gushing, can you?
