L I F E / Festival Packing

 photo loveaestheticspackingforfestival.jpg

Let's be honest. There was just no way that I was going to make the actual content of what I'm taking to Melt festival look good enough for a blog post. My bag is packed with chargers, wires, wipes, band-aids, disinfecting gel, bug spray, extra socks, towels and more random stuff that you need to go out camping. The actual clothes that I'm taking are only a fraction of my luggage. Though I am very proud that I managed to fit everything inside one single backpack. Getting to chose these clothes was a bit of a hassle, picking footwear was the most problematic. See, I just don't want to put any of my babies shoes through the mud, sand, trash, stomping, dancing this weekend. Instead I got a pair of vintage platform trainers for the heavy duty. What I'll be wearing will be very simple as always, no fuss, just some monochromatic basics. Havn't even figured out my outfits exactly; but because it is all black and white it surely will work out. Off to Melt!

Way to go! People (myself included) always pack more stuff with them than they need, picking out the things *really* necessary can be troublesome. I'm trying to carry less and less with me with every following trip I take, maybe someday I'll manage to fit my stuff into a bag as small as yours! Long live the minimalism and have a very awesome time at the festival x

Sophia said...

I will be there too and I am bringing among my backpack a pleaded white skirt!

Wow, i didn't think anyone could pull it off. Great job. I am still working on taking only a few things with me anywhere i go and it has been an epic fail so far. So i give lots of credit.

Ivania, what does minimalism mean to you? It's a fashion style or life philosophy? How does it manifest itself in your life?

Mika said...

Aren't you worried about wearing white to a festival though? I think you'd definitely stand out though, but I'd be too paranoid to walk around and get mud on my clothes.

Impressive indeed! Heel veel plezier op Melt en good luck at keeping those whites white ;)

Korin said...

Hi, Ivania,

Your blog is simply amazing and so inspiring !
I want to ask you for a favour - could I please borrow these photos as a visual example(with your name under it, of course) for an article 'list of least things you should take to a festival' I'm writing in order to get a job in lithuanian SwO fashion magazine.
That would be a life saver
Have a great day now !

Margaux said...

I swear that at a moment during the festival I thought I saw you, but I wasn't sure so I didn't came and talk ahaha thats too silly. Hope that you had a great festival (who wouldnt have? :), despite how dusty I guess your white clothes was at the end of the 3days. And, by the way, I really really like your blog and all the stuff you do !

Hey Ivania,

I'm interested in getting that eastpak bag. Did you remove the logo? If you did, was it easy to do?
