All white always, especially if the white is off-white and dirty. Marissa Sullivan

To say we're lucky to have an amazing outdoor music festival in our backyard is an understatement. That being said, to describe this year’s Pickathon as “a little dusty” would be a gross understatement, and to call the weather we got this year “hot” is anything but hyperbole. But despite the record temps, I got to see Dinosaur Jr. and Dungen on a small, intimate stage in the woods. Was it worth the sweaty underboob and black boogers? 10/10 yes, will go again. 

Here’s some wisdom for those who attend next year: 

• High tops or boots are a must.

• Pants are definitely not required.

• All white is always a good idea.

• If it’s backless, all the better.

If I had to choose one Pickathon uniform, this would be it: a one-piece swimsuit; cut-offs (preferably Levi’s); boots (preferably Blundstones) for tromping across hay and dirt and hills; bandana for keeping said dirt out of the nose and mouth; hat (preferably Brixton) for blocking the sun; and sunnies of your choosing.
