I’m super excited to be heading to London Fields this Saturday with CAT Footwear, so to celebrate I thought I’d discuss my ultimate festival style! For festivals I tend to revert back to the grungey looks I’d wear constantly when I was a bit younger – I guess it’s a bit of a comfort thing?
I often find myself admiring girls who wear all the beautiful jewellery, maxi skirts and kimonos to festivals, and as much as I love that style (Stevie Nicks is one of my all-time style icons), I can never find myself wearing it at them. The main reason for this seems to boil down to the English weather. As you probably know, the weather in England in early June is often a bit… changeable (it’s raining as I type this right now!), which means that more often than not at this time of year the rain begins hammering down, or a freezing wind will start up… and theres always – ALWAYS – mud.
I don’t want any of that impacting on my fun, so my festival get up tends to boil down to the following:
- A simple printed tee – something that will keep me cool if it warms up, but also looks cute when layered up.
- Shorts – they’re comfy and easy to wear! (+10 points for anyone who gets the reference, but it’s actually true too!)
- Something to throw on when the weather gets a bit crazy – I like to layer up with some kind of cover up that I can tie around my waist for ease, and it’s usually my trusty plaid shirt.
- Bag – generally I go for a crossbody bag so I can keep it close to me, or a cute backpack like this one that I can tie shut (so no one can try getting into it without me noticing!)
- Sturdy boots – these are always the most important part of my wardrobe because I’m on my feet all the time, and these CAT boots are so perfect for a festival – sturdy with just the right amount of sparkle! I love festivals because they’re the best time to make this part of my get-up just a little bit more fun!
- Jacket – this is kind of an optional one, depending on how long I’m going for & if I have a bag I can stick it in when needed, but it is nice for the evenings if the wind gets up a little
- Jewellery – I tend to just go with a simple choker and a couple of rings – I don’t want something snapping, or flying off into the mud – because then I’d have to scrabble around to find it (been there, done that, got covered in mud to prove it) – and I don’t wear any of my spiked belts or cuff because I don’t want to impale anybody! ^.^’
What’s your ultimate festival get up?
