Hi lovelies! Sorry I've been a little bit distant from blogging these past few days, I'm at the final stage of uni exams with my last one up and coming this Wednesday, so after then I will be hopefully spending a lot more quality blog time!
Anyways on to today's post, a bit of a different one today! After Coachella in April I haven't been able to stop wishing summer would hurry up. And after Radio 1's big weekend this past weekend I think its safe to say festival season is upon us. Festival season is one of my absolute favourite times of year in terms of fashion, the term 'anything goes' comes to mind. Its the only time of year you can get away with having flowers in your hair, face paint and wellies without looking a little bit of a nut case.
With the huge amount of festivals imminent, I thought I would put together a list of festival essentials.
MY TOP FIVE FESTIVAL ESSENTIALS
ONE: THE WELLIES
Arguably the most important item you will ever take to a festival right? As much as i would love to sit here and select an array of glamorous studded or fringed biker boots, they just aren't practical for a UK festival because lets be honest, chances are it will chuck it down within the first 45 minutes of being there and the entire place will turn into a giant mud bath.
From right to left, top to bottom: Pink Hunter Wellies, Burgundy Vivienne Westwood Wellies, Metallic Silver Hunter Wellies, Black studded Burberry Wellies, Watermelon New Look Wellies, Black bow Joules Wellies.
TWO: THE BUMBAG
Now this one may be a little more controversial, I've found that the bum bag is the accessory equivalent to marmite, you either love'em or you hate'em. Well I for one love them, they're big enough to hold everything you need whilst being uber practical, I mean hands free is just perfection right? Means you have enough hands left for a drink in one and your camera in the other.
From left to right, top to bottom, Giuseppe Zannoti bumbag (£790), Emilio Pucci bumbag (£908), Riverisland bumbag (£20), Riverisland bumbag (£20), Moschino bumbag (£395), Nasty Gal bumbag (£25)
THREE: THE HEADGEAR
Whether its floral, metal, feathers you name it, you need to have it on your head this festival season. There are so many different styles of accessories that are on the high street at the moment that would look super cool and make you stand out from the crowd.
From left to right, top to bottom, Rock and Rose feather headdress(£29), Topshop Floral crown (£19), Miss Selfridge gold head chain (£9), Miss Selfridge spike headband (£9), Topshop silver head chain (£13), Topshop floral headband (£12).
FOUR: THE ARMCANDY
Ok so you're pulling your accessories together, what's the main key accessory that you need? A super sleek festival ready watch of course. I mean who wants to miss their favourite band cos they don't know the time? The perfect watch for summer comes in the form of these super beaut neon coloured limited edition Olivia Burton watches.
From left to right: Olivia Burton colour crush watch 'lime and gold' (£58), Olivia Burton colour crush watch 'teal and gold' (£58), Olivia Burton big dial watch 'gold and neon pink' (£72), Olivia Burton colour crush watch 'neon orange and gold' (£58) and can be bought at www.oliviaburton.com
FIVE: THE COVERUP
If the suns out, chances are you wont be too bothered about applying sun cream because you're too in the festival 'I don't care' mood, so you're gonna need some kind of thing cover up. Keep on trend by wearing a floaty or fringed kimono. On the other end of the ever changing UK weather spectrum, it could be pouring it down (more than likely), in which case you're gonna want some kind of waterproof, although preferably not a pac'a'mac from 2003!

Whichever festival you're all going to, I hope you have the best time! Can't wait to see all the festival looks.
