Festival Fashion


Summer's approaching, and it with it, bringing back the festivals!
Last year I was lucky enough to bag some tickets to Radio 1 Big Weekend in Hackney, having never been to a festival before it was my first taste of that kind of event.  I loved it so much that this year I've booked tickets for V Festival... I was dying for Beyonce tickets anyway, so when it as announced she was headlining it was a no brainer!

Simply Be have launched a competition over on their facebook page, where you can style an outfit for a festival and possibly win a £200 ticketmaster card - awesome, right?!
Last year I was so unsure about what to wear that I ended up wearing wellies, full jeans and a long top.  Great, but the weather deterred from heavy rain to glorious sunshine and I was not looking my best!
I thought this would be a great opportunity to style up an outfit for the day for myself (and try and bag myself a prize!) so I've knocked one up.

Here's what I made earlier....


I love this kaftan, it feels almost tribal or Aztec with its triangle mutlicoloured tassels, but more importantly - it's loose.  I'm not going to want to worry about flashing some belly when I'm dancing around like a cray girl, so the length and loose materials are perfect for the day.  I teamed it with some ditzy print jeggings, some awesome jewellery and a tassel-tastic floral bag.
I've teamed with with 2 pairs of shoes, as you never know what the weather will present you with.  Anyway, you can fit the sandals in the bag!
More than anything with this, it's practical as well as stylish - I'll feel fierce as well as entirely comfortable in this, so I can stop worrying about what others are thinking of and grab a drink.  I'm done with feeling like I'm competing with everyone else, I'm going to wear what I want!



Are you going to a festival this summer?

What will you be rocking?
