Friendly Festival Attire

Friendly Festival Attire




It's all good and well wanting to look the belle of the ball and all that jazz. But lets be honest, it's festival time, in Britain, and it rains, a hell of a lot. The Download lot weren't so lucky, the Glastonbury lot were. But with more festivals on the cards, it doesn't look like the weather will be as lucky as we all hope. Although for the next week or so we might manage without the rain!

I'm a big fan of festivals, but unfortunately being pregnant this year I've opted out of attending any and stopped going to as many gigs, woe is me. 

Lets be honest ladies, prancing around in a pair of hotpants with wellies on isn't the best look. Sure it might be great wearing a bikini and shorts during the day, but it gets cold. I think people forget how cold it actually gets.  You need something sensible for your bottoms, albeit a pair of leggings under your shorts (along with about 10 pairs of tights and woolly socks), or a decent pair off skinny jeans. It's too cold at 8pm to be wondering around in a vest top, and probably a slouchy t-shirt for that matter, so a hoody will always come in useful. Along with a trusty pac-a-mac as lets be honest, we have no idea what that cloud up there is playing at right now. 

I think I'm pretty lucky not to have seen anyone wearing stupid footwear, such likes of ballet pumps, sneakers or flip flops. You need wellies. It will be muddy, and lets be honest, when you are using a portaloo, you have no idea what is on the floor... At least you can wipe wellies clean. 

I'm not a fan of camping whatsoever, and I get cold really easily. At least packing more means I can sleep in that soft, fluffy hoody when I can't sleep as I'm shivering too much. 

This post has shown what an old woman I've become!

  1. Firstly, I love the hoodie, sugar skulls are one of my all time favourite designs and I've amassed a collection loungefly sugar skull products, eek!

    I've never understood the whole "let's dress in almost nothing for attention" thing. Wellies are a fun novelty clothing item I associate with festivals.

    1. I love anything with sugar skulls on! They had a stunning dress in Primark with a skull print similar to the one we saw <3
      I can't understand anyone in less than wellies, the weather is too blinking unpredictable! X
