I am not really a big fan of the term ‘festival fashion’ which implies that there is a whole category of fashion dedicated to that once or twice occasion of attending a festival. On the other hand, I am a big fan of many of the features associated with festivals including hats, fringing and quirky styles and am quite happy to wear my kind of own version of festival fashion all summer long.
This year we have been to Truck Festival in Oxfordshire, a smaller boutique festival that seemed to have grown massively since last year. We saw Basement Jaxx, who I love and Clean Bandit amongst others but for me going to festivals is about having a good time and soaking up the atmosphere than pushing my way to the front to see the main acts, which I can’t really be bothered with. With also went to V-Dub Island which is a festival for those with a love of VW cars and campervans but also featured some really good music and some vintage stalls. Whilst the weather for Truck festival was amazing, at V-Dub Island, we found ourselves knee deep in mud and on the Sunday decided to leave a day early for another campsite on the Isle of Wight for fear of getting campervan and caravan stuck in the mud.

The wind and wet wreaked havoc with my hair but we weren’t going to let it get us down, there was nothing to do but head for the pub. A delicious meal and a few beers later and the world felt like a much happier place. The sun did come out though and we ventured to the local monkey sanctuary the next morning followed by an afternoon and evening in Ryde. We had a delicious meal at the Three Buoys in Ryde with pre dinner cocktails sat out on the balcony.
Unfortunately I haven’t had much time for posting over the summer with festivals and the assignment that I have been working for my CIM Diploma. I hope to have the final copy finished today, which will be a relief as I am now a third of the way through the course. Looking forward to catching up on my favourite blogs very soon.
What have you been up to over the summer? Have you been to any festivals?
With warmest wishes
