So I am TOTALLY late getting this post up but I could not NOT share this amazing experience with you. A few weeks ago I went to KAABOO Del Mar which is a three day music experience. I had never been to any sort of music festival before so was not sure what to expect but I have to say…I am SO happy that I went. It took me about a week to recover…no seriously, my feet/legs were throbbing BUT it was so worth it. The music, the food, the art…all of it was amazing.

Day One: My husband and I met up with my bestie of 20+ years and her husband (they also had tickets all three days) and we had an absolute BLAST! Day one was the day I was most looking forward to because…HALL & OATS!!! And they did not disappoint. It was such a mellow vibe…the crowds weren’t bad, the weather was perfect and we spent most of the day just wandering around enjoying each others company. The boys ran into Phil Hellmuth (professional poker player) so since both of our husbands are avid poker players, we had to snap a pic!

Day Two: We were moving a little slow on day two since we went BIG the night before but my friend was determined to be front & center for Lenny Kravitz. I am so thankful she pushed her/our way through because I never would have done it on my own but it ended up being one of the highlights of the weekend. Lenny Kravitz was AMAZING live! BTW…the crowds were insane on Saturday…there must have been triple the amount of people that were there on Friday but we still had a great time. I was REALLY torn though because Aerosmith and The Chainsmokers were playing at the exact same time later in the evening. I decided to stick around for Aerosmith (because duh!…legends!) but from a distance this time since I knew it was going to be a nightmare getting out of there if I stayed in the front row.


Day Three: My husband had his fill of the festival life (LOL) after day one so I brought another one of my besties with me for day three. I was determined to see Cypress Hill so we found a perfect spot in-between the stage and the BASK pool party (which proved to be a perfect spot for people watching too). I’ve been besties with these girls since high school (actually one of them since middle school) so we had a blast reminiscing about all of our high school shenanigans. We ended the weekend with Jack Johnson and our pic above (bottom left) even made it up on the big screen before he went on stage.


A few more snaps from my weekend: The murals and live art were a bloggers dream for backdrops.


We took a pedi-cab from the parking lot to the entrance gate on day two. It wasn’t necessary because the walk was short but I sure could have used these guys the first night when we had to walk miles to get to our uber driver! Oh and before I forget…a HUGE HUGE HUGE shout-out and THANK YOU to Swirl Boutique for dressing me all three days. I am sure you guys know by now but it is hands down my #1 favorite local place to shop. My friends top in the pic above is also from Swirl! She ended up buying the same exact romper as me too so we had to coordinate so as to not wear them on the same day…although I think it would have been cute to have been twinsies! Right down to our Brixton hats!
