Hey all! I've been gathering inspiration for my festival looks, even though it's not as cool nowadays to try too hard at a festival. I'm going V Festival again because it's so local to me and my friend was keen to go; plus I'm so the kind of person that never says no to an opportunity! Even if the music isn't your dream line-up, you're pretty much guaranteed to know most of the bands at a festival like V, and my highlights will be dressing like you're on holiday with a dash of hippie, hitting the headphone disco on the first night, and bopping around in a field releasing my inner flower child. I'm not so into the beers and the camp fires (are you even allowed to light fires?!), I literally just take my entire makeup bag and use the weekend as a mini holiday!
My mood board may differ from the common wellies-and-denim-shorts attire but at a festival, I wouldn't really say that is the optimum outfit. Girls arrive to V with a head full of hair curlers and an outfit only appropriate for a club anyway! I got to the proper backstage artist's area a few years ago as I knew an artist and ended up having dinner with Beyonce's dentist. I went back into the area the next day as I had the access pass and the artist had moved onto the other festival location, I helped myself to the free hair and massage stands, and then stocked up on drinks to take out to my friends! But alas, that is a story for another time. Here are the looks I'm feeling this year, featuring mostly chokers, plaits and lashes. The weather forecast says rain anyway so my co-ords will sadly be under a rain mac and umbrella! All pictures are from my Tumblr.
