The other weekend I went along to Parklife in Manchester with my best friends. I only went to the Sunday which I’m seriously regretting now as I would of loved to of seen Mark Ronson. The main reason for my journey to Parklife was my need to see FKA Twigs. I missed her UK tour last year and was eager to see her as her album has become one of my firm favourites. I have to say she absolutely blew me away, I went all the way to the front and the atmosphere was electric. My pictures aren’t the best as they are just on my iPhone but you get the idea.
I think everyone should make an effort to go to a music festival at least once in their lifetime, personally I make it my aim to go to one at least once a year. What could be better than dancing in a field to your favourite music, with a drink in hand and all your best friends surrounding you?
Festival dressing is like a new breed of getting ready, it takes careful planning (the weather is not guaranteed at a UK festival) and lots of thought into practicalities. For example you wouldn’t see me wearing a jumpsuit or playsuit to a festival, would you fancy getting naked in a port-a-loo? For me a dress is the most practical and easy to wear. I picked this paisley print floaty dress from Missguided. I loved the whole 70s vibe including the extra wide sleeves, perfect for dancing! I also wore a pair of lace trim cycling shorts underneath so I wouldn’t have any embarrassing ‘flasher’ moments. I finished it off with a firm festival favourite, the fedora. I picked this one up from Tesco, they have some great hats in at the moment. Of course I stuck to my faithful wellies as you never know when your going to have to navigate the mud. Are you going to any festivals this summer?
