Festival wear is a tricky one, everything has to be lugged from the car and no one wants to carry too much.
My festival essentials
My first pack is always flip-flops. Feet, flicking on flip-flops is the sound of summer. Everything about flip-flops, bare feet, bright colours say; festival.
Bright and bold
Anything goes, at a festival, it is that place to indulge your fancies. Floral Capri pants and matching sunglasses; hello! I would love a pair of Minnie Mouse Ears. Because at a festival you are never to old to wear Minnie Mouse Ears. Wearing something bright and bold, especially when you haven’t showered for a couple of days, detracts from less than perfect hair. I’ve lifted all my festival choices from Joules. They sell bold wellies all year round and wellies make a great starting point for festival clothing.
Evenings and early mornings can be cold on a campsite, pack a sweatshirt or a jumper.
An across body bag is perfect to leave arms free for dancing or carry drinks, while keeping purse and phone to hand.
What if it rains?
English weather is a fickle friend. Packing for my third Camp Bestival this summer, my priory will be; expect sunshine and prepare for rain. A waterproof and wellies, my only dilemma is should I go red welly or yellow welly?
