Series: Festival Look Book 1

Festival season is fast approaching, so I thought it would be quite fun to make a little series of posts with different outfit looks if your struggling what to buy/pack/wear. These will be posted every Wednesday at 3pm so keep your eyes peeled for the next installment.

A couple of years ago I went to my first ever festival at Leeds Fest and I was absolutely clueless of what to pack, especially if you are like me and not a light packer in the slightest. The biggest issue to keep in mind is the British weather, it could be 28 degrees one day or a storm the next, so I believe that packing layers is the best thing to do!!

T-shirts, hoodies and thin jackets are probably the best items you could pack, that way they fold quite small into a bag or you can tie them around your waist if you get too warm or you can layer them up bit my bit if it gets a little cold, especially in the evenings and you don't want to walk miles and miles to your tent just to get a massive coat. 

I absolutely love this first look, Kimonos are beautiful statement pieces, you can really find such incredible patterns and designs in silk fabric through to cotton. This is perfect to either stop yourself from burning or keeping you a little bit warmer if there is a slight breeze, it is lightweight and will not annoy you by making you ridiculously hot if you are stuck in the middle of the crowd.

Teaming it with either a crop top if your brave and adventurous, if not with a plain t-shirt and some little denim shorts rather than a pair of jeans. Shorts are pretty much what everyone wears at a festival, they are cool, you don't have to worry about them getting muddy or wet at the bottom, and they just look summery. Wear with thick socks above your wellies for that quirkier look but will also keep your feet warmer and dryer.

Finally, the best thing that I found at a festival was wearing a bum bag, yes they are not fashionable, but, they are very practical. You don't want to be messing around with a massive bag in such a crowd, also you are at a very high risk of pick pocketers, so a bag over your shoulder is not ideal. A bum bag is always in your sight, and is very tricky for someone to try and steal your possessions without you noticing. Plus, they are small enough to be worn under your clothes so people can be unaware that your actually wearing one!

I hope that this was helpful, and you enjoyed reading the post. If you have any questions feel free to ask, and I would love to know what you think.
