It’s time to get your boho and summer vibezzzzz on my babes, festival season is well and truly here!
I personally haven’t been to a festival in years, but I must say Glastonbury and Coachella are definitely on my must-experience list. I love flicking through the photos every year to see the festival style, and always want to follow in the ultra cool fashion footsteps of Alexa, Suki and Alessandra – they never step a foot wrong!
Speaking of fashion, if you’re one of the lucky ones gearing up for a summer festival, you’ll be in the midst of working out what to wear and what to bring. My tip – let your creative side run free and come up with a look that’ll make you standout, and keep you comfortable for a whole day of dancing and having fun.
To help make festival planning that little bit easier for you, I’ve collaborated with the super gorgeous accessories and homewares store Postcards Home, to bring you the five accessories you’ll need for outfit perfection.
If festivals aren’t your thing but you love the festival/boho vibe, then you’ll seriously love these accessories too, believe me!
The multi-functional scarf
A scarf is such a handy item to bring to a festival. As I mentioned above, you want to be creative with your outfit, so of course you can wear a scarf as a scarf, but you can also get crazy and have some fun with it. Turn it into a headscarf, a shawl, a bandeau dress, a sarong, or go super on trend and wear it as a top, like me! I’m wearing the beautiful Mustard Embroidered Scarf by Postcards Home and love it!
The handy pouch
You want to keep everything in one place when you’re boogying down at the main stage, so a little pouch is what you need. I’m so obsessed with Postcard Home’s Black Poodle Pouch, isn’t it just the cutest?! This little pouch will be able fit your phone, purse, lippy and sunglasses, and you can simply use it as a clutch or pop it into a bigger bag.
The arm bangles
Embrace one of this season’s biggest trends and make bangles your jewellery of choice. Either stack a few bangles together to make them into a major statement, or go super boho and wear them half way up your arm, just like I did with the uber cool Brass Ribbon Bangle.
The must-have towel
You may wonder why a towel is an essential festival accessory. Well my babes, get ready to be blown away by the amazingness, and handiness of a Hammam towel! Also known as a Turkish towel, these babies absorb water like no other, they also dry quickly and are super light, making them fabulous for festivals. Still not convinced?! Bring along a Hammam towel to your festival and you not only have a great drying device, but you also have a picnic rug, blanket, shawl, and even a skirt, as you can see in my pic! I’m loving the Grey Hammam Towel from Postcards Home, and I bet you will too!
The quirky jewels
To polish off your fabulous festival outfit, you want a little twinkle of quirky jewellery! To get into the real love and peace festival hippy mood, I picked these divine Heart Earrings from Postcards Home. I thought they gave me the little touch of quirk and love I needed to complete the outfit. Hello festival fever!!!
