I like to think of the Arts Foundation of Cape Cod’s annual Pops by the Sea event as a really big garden party, and dress accordingly. To me, this might mean flowy, flowery dresses, straw wide-brimmed hats and wedge sandals. But this year’s event theme offered a little bit of a twist. In honor of the 50th anniversary of Woodstock, the Boston Pops’ playlist included music from 1969 – and thus the theme of the event was the Summer of ’69.
I had fun putting together an outfit around this premise, marrying the styles worn by the flower children and the mod queens of the 60s.
I ended up choosing a flowy and flowery top from Artichoke (channeling my inner flower child).
The drawstring that cinches the shirt in the middle allows the shirt to become short-waisted so it pairs well with a pair of high waisted (mod inspired) shorts from Devinto.
All throughout the day from the pre-show with DJ Ian Lee and Funktapuss to singing along with the Boston Pops to “Aquarius/Let the Sun Shine” I felt like I fit right in with the vibe of 1969.
