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.
Shirt Dress - eBay
Boots - Dr Martens
Choker - eBay
Necklace - Primark (Old)
Flower Clips - H&M
The good old shirt dress. So easy to wear, so comfy, and so perfect for a festival. I'm sure I have mentioned this before, but I am all about the comfort at festivals, and a gigantic shirt definitely caters to that. The flared kimono-like sleeves and unique print make it stand out against all the other shirt dresses of the world. Sorry other shirt dresses, this shirt dress wins at it's shirty life.
I just bunged half my hair up in a bun, because, let's face it, when having festival fun, who wants to be faffing with complicated hairstyles or having a face full of hair all day? Added some flower clips, to festivalize my head a bit. They are actually black flower clips as too much colour scares me (she says, currently typing with lilac locks falling around her face...).
Gone down the socks and docs route today, nice little combo right there. I actually bought some bright blue zebra socks from Primark recently (click to check them out on my Instagram), that I wanted to pair with the docs. I can't. They aren't long enough to be seen. Goddammit Primark, make your zebra socks longer!!!
Seeing as festival season is pretty much over, this post is actually the last in my festival series. I do like to think I saved the best till last, I am pretty attached to this shirt dress at the moment!
