AEO: Have you been to Philadelphia before? If so, what are your favorite haunts and if not, what are you excited to experience for the first time?
Cara: I’ve never been to Philadelphia, and I am SO excited to go!! I am looking forward to checking out the Liberty Bell, walking the “Rocky” Steps and indulging in a soft pretzel!
AEO: Who are you most excited to see perform? What is your favorite type of music and how does it inspire your fashion choices?
Cara: Where do I begin!? I can’t wait to see Pharrell Williams and Kanye West, of course, but Chromeo, Girl Talk and The National are going to be amazing too!
Music definitely inspires my fashion choices. I love everything from jazz to hip-hip to blues to 90’s pop, so depending on what I am listening to, I can be found wearing cut-offs or a gown or a simple little dress.
AEO: What goes into your bag at the festival?
Cara: Water, lipgloss, a camera, my iPhone, Vega Protein Bars, sunglasses, sunscreen, an AEO sweater for when it starts to cool down, a backup iPhone charger and a hat.
AEO: What festival style advice can you give to our readers?
Cara: Make sure to dress comfortably and wear layers. It can be toasty during the day, but it can cool down quickly in the evening. Wear closed-toe shoes as it can be dusty and lots of drinks and water can spill on your feet. Also, make sure to wear shades, sunscreen and a hat!
