Festival Fashion

Last weekend was full of music, with my Baby playing 2 festivals, one locally on the Saturday, and then a trip to Builth Wells in Mid Wales on the Sunday for the Heart of Rock and Blues Festival.  Situated on a farm in a stunning location, this fab little festival was weather-proof, with the stages being indoors in huge barns.  Not that we needed the protection, it was glorious!

I always think a festival is an excuse to go a bit hippy and channel a '60s or '70s vibe, or 'boho' as they call it in fashion magazine these days.  I left my hair to dry naturally, put on some glitter eyeliner and '70s style shades, and with this gorgeous psychedelic print top I was good to go!  I did pack pink wellies, but didn't need them so stayed in my neon trainers.

What a glorious location.  I'm a fan of smaller festivals these days, and I was very impressed with the facilities (no portaloos!) and the organisation behind The Heart of Rock and Blues Festival.  A lovely bunch of people, and I really hope to be returning to the festival next year.

The really annoying thing was that the day after these photographs, I broke those sunglasses!  Well, the teeny-tiny screw has come out of one of the arms.  I'm hoping that my Baby will have some teeny-tiny screws in his DIY collection to mend it!

How do you dress for a festival?  I'd love to hear about your festival look!

  12. Oh, great look! I like the balance of festival style, with the sunglasses and top and necklace, and practicality, with comfortable shoes and covered legs. I feel like most girls would be tottering around in a pair of wedges or sweating in a pair of boots.

    1. I think both types of dresser were present! But also a couple in matching wolf t-shirts, and some very hippy tie-dye ensembles too, with a few bikers thrown in. It was tres cosmopolitan! x

  15. Great festival look - and could I be more envious of your natural hair?! Mine sort of does what yours does, only much, much fluffier. I love that necklace, stunning colour x

    1. Tee hee, sometimes the fluff gets me too - I just use something to weigh it down, either an oil or a serum, or if I've not got products handy I just use a bit of any old moisturiser! x

  23. You look festival-chic!

    It's possible to buy glasses repair kits - I'm not sure where I got mine from, but they have tiny screws in; I used them to repair my own specs.
