Festival Fashion

Festivals are the highlight of the Great British Summer. We make the most of the rubbish weather by donning our wellies and jumping around on muddy fields all over the UK to some of the best music in the world. Over the years, festivals have developed and grown and now you can find one for almost every genre of music possible. Most are largely televised in some way so the less brave of us can still enjoy the atmosphere.

For the girls, a lot of us like to use a festival as an excuse to purchase copious amounts of clothing, regardless of its inevitable ruin during the weekend. Alas, I am not going to a festival again this year. I have yet to pluck up the courage or funds to go to one, so instead I thought I'd follow my festival music post with a festival fashion post (not really the same as going but I vow to go to a big festival one day).

I always think of Reading/Leeds as a bit of a mini Glastonbury- 23rd- 25th August
