My family and I and some excellent friends have just got back from Camp Bestival - we had such an amazing time it was so much fun, the kids loved it and we loved it and we can't wait to do it again.
One of the things I have always loved about festivals is the fashion. For me it is a place to wear whatever I feel like - no holding back!!!
Sequins are perfect for festivals, in the day time they look amazing when the sun reflects off them and at night they shine in disco lights. You'll always have a good time wearing sequins!
Rosa Bloom leggings now £65
Glitter and sunglasses are a couple of my festival staples - both of which are fun to wear and are perfect for hiding tired looking eyes. I also make sure I take a sunhat that can fit into my bag both for shading your face from the sun and having a nap under.
There is a lot of glitter around this festival season with most festivals offering places that you can pay to have your face glittered. Personally I like to do my own, it's really easy and fun to do - here is how.
For Camp Bestival I had a mixture of pearl coloured and blue glitter. I also applied this amazing iridescent eye shadow which changed colour depending on which angle you looked at it from. Don't forget to take a mirror!
When you are at a festival you want to have free hands (for dancing, drinking, waving etc.) therefore you need to take a bag that allows this. This year because we took the kids I carried a backpack with all their stuff in and a cross body bag for mine - wallet, sunglasses, lipstick, glitter etc.
I travelled to the festival in this denim dress, tshirt and sandals, then put on a pair of tights, jumper and a bomber jacket for the evening. I like the versatility of this dress - you could wear anything from a swimming costume to a roll neck underneath and it would look good.
I wore this super fun jumpsuit for the final day, it is so comfortable and perfect for sitting on the floor, playing with the kids and hoola hooping in. I would also wear this to work or dress it up for a wedding.
It gets cold in the evenings and sometimes rains at UK festivals so I always make sure i have a couple of jackets and layers to put on for when it does. It is also a good idea to take a warm scarf.
