This past weekend was NXNE in the city, and as usual I scheduled to do/see way too much in 4 very short days with little consideration of kinda important things like eating and sleeping. As a result, I missed several acts that I was dying to see (still don’t wanna talk about the fact that I missed Kelela…twice). But nothing will take away from my first day of NXNE, during which I saw Le1f, Omar Souleyman, and Pusha T, all while chilling on Toronto Island among friends, summertime foliage, and unlimited free liquor. As part of Vice magazine’s annual NXNE party, the event was free to get in and the best one yet, possibly of all time. I have a hard time imagining any future party rivalling one during which I got to chill with hero, Le1f, and was told by said hero that my outfit was fly. Between sets I snapped pics of other flyly-dressed and cigarettes-adorned girls and boys—shout out to Nike—and picked a few favourites for ye olde blog. I love how most of these “festival outfits” look so unfestival-like. Must be a Toronto thing.

Things We’d Rather Wear at Coachella

Not trying to sip on the haterade, but festival style is exhausting to look at. Not only do the clothes have that birthed-from-Urban Outfitters-&-F21 feel, they literally make my eyes feel tired after focusing for too long. I’m still trying to figure out what’s so inspiring about an outfit that can be pieced together in under 20 minutes at the mall. And also why anyone would wear a leather jacket/suede boots/sweater vests in +40 degrees of desert heat.

Never one to dwell too long on negative ish, The Pack spent some time thinking about what we’d rather wear if we all of a sudden came upon a lot of inheritance cash and a newfound love of indie rock bandz. Here are our picks:ErinWassonbyAnnemariekevanDrimmelen28BeforeSunrise-Rika238Spring-Summer2013292_zps1a970c67 tumblr_muf1p7N6571r09f27o1_500 tumblr_mvrv9poESd1s9ey6bo1_1280 image007bb
