Festival Style

I was recently contacted by Charles Clinkard who are running a competition to win a pair of Hunter wellies. With the weather the way it has been lately I think they will be needed! 

All we have to do is pick a pair of Hunters and  create a festival look around them. It's been a few years since I visited a festival but I gave it my best shot. I chose the Black Gloss Hunters and went to work...

I'm loving the dungaree/pinafore trend this season and I think it will work perfectly at a festival. Denim is a great fabric and it makes a change from the usual denim-shorts-and-vest-top-look that I'd normally go for. I've kept it simple with the Topshop pinafore and a New Look crop top. I have this top in several colours already and I love them! I chose red to match the lovely Riri Woo Lipstick from Mac. I don't think you need to go all out at a fesival with make-up so a touch of colour to your lips is all you need to glam up the look a bit.

I was sensible and threw in a varsity jacket to the mix, I know it gets cold in those Summer evenings -hell, its cold all day, let's be honest! So a light jacket it a must in this country -oooh arent I British, moaning about the weather?!

A little satchel is all you need for a few bits and peices, nobody needs to be lugging a massive bag around all day (although a big bag makes a good pillow later in the evening -a little tip there!) I make sure I always have a bottle of water with me to keep me hydrated and being optimistic I'd take some suncream too! You never know! 

Now this look might be dated but I like to team my wellies with knee high socks, it looks cute and adds that tiny bit of warmth to your legs too! 

The look is topped off with Ray Ban Wafarers, even if it is dark and overcast, it just looks right!

Team it all with great friends, good music and a cold drink and you're good to go!
