If you didn't catch last weeks post in my festival series, click here to have a little look.
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.
Crochet Top - Urban Outfitters (Old)
Panther Tee - Topshop (Old)
Shorts - eBay
Boots - Dr Martens
Necklace - Primark
Gone back to basics, with the classic shorts, tee & boots festival look. That's the way to go though, you wanna be comfy, right? But also, still look pretty cool. So, just throw on your most ripped and messed up pair of shorts and tuck in your fave sleeveless tee. Simples.
I added a beaded statement necklace to get some oh so boho vibes going, wearing red lipstick and nail polish to match the pop of red. How coordinated of me. The long sleeved crochet top is perfect for when it gets a little chillier, just to chuck on over the top. The large knit looks so beautifully delicate over the skin, which I love, and shows teeny tiny hints of that scary-ass panther on my tee.
