Essential Festival by rachel-the-hat featuring Ted Baker

I have never been to a Festival but i have always wanted to attend one,in particular the imminent Glastonbury! With it being complete festival season right now, it got me thinking as to what i would wear. (i like planning imaginary scenario outfits, that’s not weird, right?)
I thought long and hard about it and to really tick all the festie boxes i decided on boho/funky/casual/comfy.
That’s a thing.
Duo Boots were my starting point, comfy stylish and keep my tootsies safe and covered from mud, trampling stampedes and well, yucky bathroom situations (or lack of?)
Love these boots. Great for summer and winter.
Socks help with that also.
I then went for a comfy tie dye dress (Actually similar to the one from yesterdays post! i am really loving the cold shoulder!) and denim vest for comfy layered style.
Cross body fringe bag to free up my hands at all times.
Sunnies to look cool and hide the old eye baggage.
Head scarf, again to hide stuff, Dirty hair in this case.
Just a couple of cool accessories that won’t get in my way or be too fussy;
the tassel pendant and some beady bracelets.

On the Must have’s in the ‘use’ category this is what i *think* you would find with me:
Deodorant cos, d’uh.
Some very basic make-up necessities.
Dry Shampoo…thank you Jesus (or Mr Batiste as the case may be)
Pac a mac.. oh yes, British weather will not catch me out.
Small coin purse for my moo-la.
I missed handy wet wipes too.. that is definitely a must!

Kind of cool right. Maybe i’ll have a party in my garden and pretend i’m rocking out at Glasto!

What would you wear/use at a festival? 
Have you ever been? 
I would love to hear about your festie time!

    I'm totally digging the tie dye dress. I think if I were going to Glastonbury I'd totally wear a tie dye dress, leather fringe back, black wayfarer sunnies, and some boots.

    Loving the whole look. You can't beat a good festival especially in good weather.

    Great picks Rachel! I went to V99 & survived 2 nights in a tent with no shower & it was awful! LOL! This is when I first discovered dry shampoo & wet wipes! :O One of the Mums at school has a denim waistcoat & she always looks so cool in it! Ax
