Floppy hat: Asos
Knitted dress: TU Sainsbury's
This could potentially be my last summery blog post for a while, unless there's a miracle and the sun comes out ASAP! Therefore, I felt it was necessary to post a festival style outfit. And yes, the facepaint is appalling but who cares eh?!
Since this floppy hat from Asos is new to my wardrobe, I'm determined to feature it in many of my outfits and blog posts as possible. This hat is perfect for summer because it really does protect your face and eyes from the sun, however it is also a great wind barrier on these chillier summer days. I think it's definitely festival appropriate as most festivals are held outside, so, if you're going to any of the remaining festivals this summer, I would highly recommend packing a floppy hat! Asos also have a great range of floppy hats, not just this one!!
As I've mentioned before, these sunglasses are perfect for a festival kind of outfit because they're so funky and sheek! They're bold, bright and I don't know, I just think they are fantastic for making a statement! And you always need a pair of sunnies for festivals because you do not want to be blinded by the sun - whether it's raining or not, the sun could make an appearance.
The Asos scarf I am wearing is something I truly adore. It's half shiny purple and half shiny white, with a black gorilla print - how quirky! It adds a splash of fun and colour to an outfit - I have worn it as a headband before too which works really well. I purchased this last year so Asos may bring it back which I hope for all your sakes, but definitely keep your eyes peeled for any more scarves by Asos.
This dress from Sainsbury's is perfect festival attire. It's loosely knitted so it's slightly cooler than a regular knit item. Also, it has fringing at the bottom which is particularly trendy at the moment. Overall, it just looks rocking and would be perfect to keep you slightly warmer than alternatives which is so helpful if you're in England!
This small satchel style cross body bag is great! It's real leather so it's of a good quality and the two colour leather makes it a little edgy compared to other bags. It just about has enough space for your phone, purse and keys, so it's ideal if you are travelling around etc. Cross body bags are a must have for festivals I think.
These sandals by Asos are absolutely fantastic. I have worn these so so much this summer, they're so comfortable, they look great with pretty much everything, although I think they aren't as effective if you're pairing them with full length trousers. They're also wipe clean, which is perfect for every day use - and if you get yourself stuck in the mud at a festival then you can bring some wipes and all will be sorted!!!
Thanks for checking out the blog, see you tomorrow for an up-cycling special lol, hopefully I have made some wearable items !
