Festival Time - Global Gathering.

Last week my lovely friend Amy and I booked our Global Gathering tickets and I AM SO EXCITED. I have been to Glastonbury, Reading and V so I'm  no festival virgin however I have never been to Global. Glasto was my first festival back in 2009, it was the best few days of my life and no festival has ever come close to bettering it. That being said the line up for Global is amaze and I can see it being a weekend full of dancing, drinking and generally loving life so it could possibly beat it! 

Glastonbury 2009 

We went for VIP tickets which basically give us showers, nicer loos and a few other comforts. Alright alright I know it's cheating, feel free to judge away! But I have spent the last 3 years slumming it at festivals making my poor friends help me wash my hair at those freezing water taps dotted around the campsite or blasting my hair with so much Batiste it has a slight grey tinge... not a good look. So I just thought enough is enough, I'm going to attempt to look attractive this year and actually be in some photos as I usually hide my grimness by running away from all photographic evidence. 

So anyway this has naturally got me thinking of my festival wardrobe. Staples include:

  • Barbour jacket
  • Hunter Wellies
  • Denim shorts
  • Big Sunnnies
  • Floral Headband
  • Plain crop tops
  • Leotards
  • Floral blouses
  • Graphic tees
  • Jumper/Sweater

My Festival Staples - bare in mind it has rained A LOT at every festival I've ever been too!

Classic Barbour

Selection of tops

Floral Blouse - Urban Outfitters

Graphie tee - Topshop

Crop top - Blue Rinse

Leotard/ Body - American Apparel

Candy Stripe shorts - Topshop, DIY studded Vintage Levi's 

Burgundy Jumper - Urban Outfitters, Tie-Dye Sweater - Zara 


Sunglasses - Dior, Headband - Topshop

Those are basics I have taken pretty much every year however to add to my basics I plan on purchasing:

  • Tie dye tees - I'm loving the ones in Urban Outfitters at the min but I'm skint so will be recreating my own in the near future
  • A rucksack - I hate bags at festival they always get in the way of me boogying so I think a small rucksack may be the answer to my prayers
  • Something feather related, I am in LOVE with Regal Rose's feather hair accessories
  • Something fringed... its a festival I'm allowed to pretend I'm a hippy.

Are any of you going to any festivals this summer? I'm in two minds about Creamfields, I am very tempted I won't lie.
