What fashion blogger Arkeedah McCormick likes about Atlanta
This fall, I look forward to the return of music festivals to Atlanta. I love live music, and although I participated in the online stuff last year, it’s not the same. I can’t hear the artists, I can’t really vibrate. Being on the lawn and listening to one of your favorite artists does something to me.
A music festival and Midtown Music are the two biggest we have, and they’re both coming back in person this year. So everyone is pretty excited about it. ONE Musicfest will be held at Centennial Olympic Park, where we had the Olympic festivities. So, it’s right in the heart of the city, and it’s a good time. It is one of my favorite festivals. This year they have HER, Lil Wayne, the Isley Brothers, Burna Boy, Ari Lennox and Ty Dolla $ ign. So, it’s basically something for everyone.
They have food trucks, you can buy spirits and drinks while you’re at it, and it’s just a nice bribe. You bring your folding chairs, your blankets, and come and sit on stage. You can have your backpack on and go bounce every step of the way, but I like to pick a step and crash into it. I have my cooler and I relax and go with this range. But it’s an eclectic range. Where else would you see Lil Wayne and the Isley Brothers playing in the same arena? It’s the best of both worlds.
My favorite research for festivals is bohemian chic, something fine that can flow so that I can be cool, as these festivals are definitely still hot in October and September. And the apartments are a must. Some people have the wedges, and I don’t know how they do it. I usually wear a maxi dress, cute little sandals, and a fedora hat or maybe a straw hat. I also like my fanny packs now. I don’t know what it is – I went back to my childhood. I used to wear fanny packs all the time growing up, and now I have a fanny pack. An elegant one, however. I can put it all there.
