Festival Fashion 2012

I'm off to my first festival at the end of this week, so I thought I'd pull together a few of my dream festival fashion purchases (as well as some more realistic options).

Dream Essentials:
Liberty print lined Barbour
Though this is pricey (Tip: I recently got exactly this style, brand new for half the price on ebay) a good Barbour will last you for life if you look after it. And sadly, you really do need a serious coat at festivals- getting cold and wet is no fun at all, however great your outfit looks. I have always hated wearing coats over outfits I love, but with this one you get to flash the lovely Liberty print rose lining.
 I also like this ASOS bright yellow mac that reminds me of coats we used to wear when we were kids.
Hunter wellies are my other luxury essential item- they now even have a whole 'festival welly' section on their website with all sorts of boots jazzed up with everything from studs to metallic paint.

Dream luxury items:
Anything from One Vintage


If I were loaded and a size 8, then all my clothes would look like this. Their hand customised vintage tunics are absolutely ideal for wearing over denim cut-offs to festivals. A girl can dream....


If you don't have time to customise your own shorts, ASOS Marketplace means that it's never been easier to get someone else to do it for you. ChinaPig sell a range of gorgeous, festival-ready denim cut-offs that you'll be reluctant to sit on, they're so pretty-this pair are £50.


In this very rubbish i-phone shot you can see a vintage dress I've been customising with fake flowers for Gabby Young.

Accessories:

Bloom Theory Camera Straps- perfect for us bloggers who always have a camera in hand and need to be sure we don't drop them in the mud! These straps won't ruin your outfit the way standard issue, chunky black straps do. Found via Cellardoor magazine.

Merrimaking- the guys who originally started the whole animal hood craze- have now branched out into other funky accessories. Bumbags may never be cool, but a watermelon shaped one for carrying your phone and money in at festivals is practical and fun.


This headpiece is from ASOS Marketplace too- a seller called Grandma's Swag, only £18.

Also keep an eye out for our lovely friend Rosa Bloom (above) who'll be selling her amazing wears at many a festival this summer- her carnival-esque stall is hard to miss, so rock up and relax on her chaise longue!

 So far this year, I'm booked in for Nova Festival, Standon Calling ( where I'm particularly looking forward to seeing Mary Epworth, who I just interviewed here) and Burning Man in Nevada. What festivals are you going to? If you're still making up your mind, you'll find some good recommendations for alternative festivals here

LOVE that Barbour. I really want one for when I go back to The New Forest. My bank balance will definitely not allow the Liberty kind, I'll have to have an Ebay hunt myself. x
