For the first time in a decade I haven't got any upcoming festivals planned - ZERO, ZILCH! It's a strange and unnatural feeling not having any lined up for the summer months and I'm bound to suffer with a serious case of FOMO, especially during Glastonbury Festival next month. I'm tempted to just runaway to another country for a weekend to avoid any TV coverage. Who's with me?
However, having no festivals on the horizon doesn't stop me from dressing the part over the coming months. My day-to-day summer wardrobe resembles a festival frolicker, even if it just means popping to the shops or going out for coffee. I tend to mix up vintage with high street or secondhand, modern pieces most days but still aim for that late 60s to early 70s look that has become my daily uniform.
I picked out this PEEERRRFECCCTTT, suede, fringed jacket from Beyond Retro a couple of weeks ago. Although I have an unnecessary amount of suede, fringed garms already, I had to have this one! I mean, they're the best for dancing in at festivals as the tassels swish wonderfully. I pretty much resembled the heart-eyed emoji when I spotted it in the Cheshire Street Beyond Retro store and kept it close to my chest like a newborn. They've got an incredible array of festival gear on their website at the moment. I've seen a number of 70s maxi dresses that are a-calling-my-name!
This little denim, lace up shift number (Denim Daze Shift Dress) is from a website called TOBI, who are based in sunny California *sigh*. They've got the same cool, careless vibe as Nasty Gal, but they're a heck o' a lot cheaper.
On top of that, they offer a whopping 50% off of your first order - say whaaaatt?! If that isn't the most generous sign up offer in the world, I don't know what is! They have everything from festival ready dresses to pretty lace intimates to rival For Love & Lemons. This shift dress is similar to one from ASOS last season that I missed out on, so I'm pretty chuffed! The only issue I do have though is the sizing is a little big. I'm usually an 8-10, so I opted for the medium as it converted to a size 10, but I would have been better with a small.
Are you off to any festivals this year?
