I remember the first festival I ever attended. Reading 2011, baby. It was a good'un. I saw the likes of Muse, Pulp, Panic! At The Disco and My Chemical Romance (amongst others), who were my fave band at the time. I still have a wall plastered with Gerard Way's face in my room, which I'm not complaining about!
My first festival also meant my first real taste of festival fashion. It returns every summer, and this year coming back stronger than most. The popularity of the style is so widespread. From avid festival goer's, to those who much prefer the luxury of a shower and a clean toilet, everyone seems to be taking part. The style incorporates boho elements from the hippie movement of the 60's. England's own little twist revolves around wellies and Dr Martens to deal with the lovely mud-filled festivals we hold, courtesy of none other than... the rain. Boo.
So in the spirit of it's return, every Monday up until I attend Bestival in September, I am going to be posting an outfit that I deem 'festivally enough' to venture into the world of camping, alcohol and live music.
Dress - Topshop
Bralet - H&M
Boots - Dr Martens
Sunflower Clip - Claire's Accessories
Backpack - Primark
Necklace & Choker - eBay
Anyone one have any idea what bra to wear under this dress? I played it safe with a triangle bralet thing, but what if I wanted my back to be completely bare? A backless bra just wouldn't make the cut - it would show though the massive arm hole bit of the dress and I doubt that would be a very good look. There's no other options, I don't think, do you see my problem? Suggestions welcome.
Other than awkward bra issues, this dress is the best purchase I ever made... Okay, I lied. This dress is the best purchase my mum ever made. Like I can afford to be splashing out at Topshop at the moment! It's super duper comfy and most definitely not too short. I'd be happy showing off half my bra in this at Bestival (seriously, what bra do you wear???).
Paired with some docs (or wellies if you prefer), your most outrageous pair of sunglasses (these heart shaped ones are about as outrageous as my sunglasses collection gets, sorry), and some flowers in your hair, you'll be ready to face the festival world.
