{Fashion Monday} Festivals outfit idea

Summer is almost here, here lined with so many festivals and though I am yet to attend a festival I am pretty excited as I mentioned previously on the blog that my sister and I are planning to go to either V, wireless or Reading festival this year. I am so excited that I thought why not put together a festivals outfit idea to go with my new Wellington Boots from Butterfly Twist. You will remember I worked with Butterfly Twist earlier in the year (here and here) and I was impressed by the quality of their shoes so when they reached out for me to pick a pair of wellies to try out I jumped at the opportunity.

It is the season of festivals and what better time than now to start playing around with festivals outfit ideas, though the Wellington boots I picked to try out are ankle boots, for this post I wanted to create a look with the full length boots.

Another thing I wanted was to add some colour to my outfit, black is always my first choice colour when I am creating looks but now I dare to be different today and try another favourite colour of mine.

Festival outfit
I know most of my readers comment about how they have too much black in their closet and not enough colours so therefore most of their outfits start and end with black. You can make a small change to your wardrobe at least one a month by buying a coloured item, I am not saying go crazy with crazy neon green but just a colour you would be comfortable with to wear ALL DAY LONG. If you can’t wear the colour all day then hold off of buy the item.
Items that I thought would be essential for my festivals outfit idea are:
Ā Kimono – I have not always been a lover of kimonos nor fringe but everyone knows with festivals you have to rock some fringe in some respect and for me I figured because I can easily take the kimono off why not get one which had fringe on it.
Straw hat – usually straw hearts are for summer but when it’s raining or you’re having a bad hair day they come in really handy. For festivals they are a definite must have item. Another reason I love straw hearts is that they make whom ever wears them with shades exude a look of sophistication.
Ripped Skinny jeans – though jeans are not my #1 choice of attire when thinking about festivals I thought why not try something new in my pursuit of creating my perfect festivals outfit. I wear skinny jeans a lot and lately I have been loving ripped skinny jeans, they are easy to dress weather in winter or summer whatever the season they work.
Backpack – ever since I start my solo travels backpacks have become my best friends and I always ensure to take one when I am away so it makes sense for me to have a backpack to carry my items. It won’t be in my way because it will be latched onto my back and I can move freely.
So there you have it, my festivals outfit idea, I know with festivals especially in England they can be really muddy and you might get your best Wellington and black items dirty but I can that evidence you had great fun.
Have you ever been to a festival?
What did you wear? If not what would you wear?

    I haven’t been to festivals but the outfit is a must to try. I love the kimono (yes, I’m not a fan of it), ripped jeans and wellies. šŸ™‚

      Hahaha thanks

    I have never been to a festival before but that outfit looks perfect to wear. The color is so elegant!!

    • June 16, 2016 / 9:22 am

      Thanks so much Jasmine, I thought I add some colour to my dull black lol

  3. June 15, 2016 / 5:22 pm

    I have never been to a festival so I have no idea what I would wear.

    • June 16, 2016 / 9:03 am

      Same but just used my imagination and wondered lol

  4. June 15, 2016 / 6:54 am

    Very cute and fun look! Giving me urban boho chic vibes!

    I am not without my backpack and my wellies when we go to a festival

    • June 14, 2016 / 9:08 pm

      I love my backpack too

  6. June 14, 2016 / 2:44 pm

    The outfit is just amazing, I love the wellies though, they are needed now with this horrible weather x

    • June 14, 2016 / 2:55 pm

      They sure are needed, I can’t believe it’s gone back to crazy British weather

  7. June 14, 2016 / 1:30 pm

    I’ve been to a couple of festivals. They were outside, during the heat of summer, so I wore shorts and a tank top.

    • June 14, 2016 / 1:56 pm

      I wish it was always like that here but nope most times it rains during our festivals

    I have been to a couple festivals and a hat is a must since you are outdoors! Bringing a backpack along is also essential.

    • June 14, 2016 / 1:56 pm

      Thanks for confirming Robin

  9. June 14, 2016 / 12:12 pm

    I haven’t been to a festival but it sounds like there are plenty of great ones. I would definitely want to wear something super comfortable!

    • June 14, 2016 / 1:54 pm

      Same here, there are plenty in the UK

    I’ve never been to a festival but really want to. I bet wellies are like the priority and I bet the backpack would come in useful as you say šŸ™‚

    Deciding what to wear to a festival can be overwhelming (if you overthink outfits like I do). This is a great outfit – LOVE the boots.

    • June 14, 2016 / 6:01 am

      It can really be overwhelming but I just try and go with the flow most of the time.

    I have never been to a festival before but hope to this Summer. That outfit looks perfect to wear.

    • June 14, 2016 / 5:13 am

      I am hoping the same too, good luck

  13. June 14, 2016 / 3:40 am

    Love festival looks! Kimonos are the best – these are all so great!

    • June 14, 2016 / 5:12 am

      Thanks Adriana

  14. June 14, 2016 / 3:31 am

    That outfit us really cute! I especially love those boots, super comfy and cute!

      They are so comfy and thanks

  15. June 14, 2016 / 12:50 am

      Thanks Chrishelle

  16. June 14, 2016 / 12:33 am

    I love kimonos and fringing so it has the best of both worlds. Another great outfit!

    • June 14, 2016 / 5:03 am

      Thanks Ana, I am getting to know kimonos a bit more and lovely them

  17. June 13, 2016 / 11:46 pm

    Ripped Skinny jeans are my go to all year around. I just love that you can dress them up and down. I have on a pair right now.

    • June 14, 2016 / 5:01 am

      They are so versatile and can certainly be dressed up or down

  18. June 13, 2016 / 8:33 pm

    I think the stylish kimono would be a really neat look. The ripped skinny jeans are definitely perfect for festivals too!

    • June 13, 2016 / 10:07 pm

      Thanks Liz

  19. June 13, 2016 / 8:24 pm

    Kimonos are one of my favorite accessories. I would definitely have worn this whole outfit in my younger years.

    • June 13, 2016 / 10:07 pm

      Kimonos are just the best

  21. June 13, 2016 / 7:55 pm

    I love this look! You totally have to have a bit of fringe at a festival, and this kimono looks fab. I haven’t been to any festivals in ages but I did get to use my wellies recently on a muddy site visit in work – not quite as glam! šŸ˜‰

    • June 13, 2016 / 10:06 pm

      I can’t wait to make it to a festival so I can try out my wellies

    What a gorgeous outfit! That top is especially gorgeous. burgundy is one of my faves right now and I would love to get that one! So cute for summer.

    • June 13, 2016 / 7:43 pm

      Thanks Jeanine I am loving burgundy too

  23. June 13, 2016 / 6:28 pm

    I love the whole outfit especially the burgundy top. I’ve only been to a few festivals but not for a long while.

    • June 13, 2016 / 7:42 pm

      Thanks I loved adding the burgundy top

  24. June 13, 2016 / 4:24 pm

    Fab festival look! I love a kimono, I have a few that I throw on with jeans and a cami and they just change the look of an outfit. I love the fringed one, that’s so lovely! Enjoy your festivals!!

    • June 13, 2016 / 4:50 pm

      Thanks Laura, kimonos tend to do that to outfits that’s why I am loving them so much

  25. June 13, 2016 / 4:03 pm

    Love the outfit. And it looks like you’ve considered the weather too! Can I ask how you created that collage? mine look a bit plain in comparison!

  26. June 13, 2016 / 3:45 pm

    What a neat festival outfit idea, looks fancy!

    • June 13, 2016 / 4:49 pm

      Thanks Sarah

  27. June 13, 2016 / 3:39 pm

    Those boots are perfection! So gorgeous and perfect for any festival! And that fringed kimono is also so comfortable-looking and fashion-forward.

    • June 13, 2016 / 4:49 pm

      Thanks so much Jenn

  28. June 13, 2016 / 3:18 pm

    Not going to any festivals this year. That said, I am loving the kimono. I think you will stand out plus its something you can dress up for another event. And the boots are perfect for a festival.

    • June 13, 2016 / 4:48 pm

      Thanks so much I appreciate that

  29. June 13, 2016 / 12:28 pm

    I’m in love with that backpack. It’s so pretty and useful. My daughter loves kimonos so I’ll make sure and show her this post. The entire outfit is perfect for a festival.

    • June 13, 2016 / 4:45 pm

      Thanks so much Alli, I love backpacks and you can never go wrong with them

  30. June 13, 2016 / 12:20 pm

    Love the all black outfit with a tinge of burgundy šŸ™‚ Not a big fan of kimonos either (my sister loves them), but only because I wouldn’t know how to use them. But love it on others šŸ™‚ x

    • June 13, 2016 / 2:41 pm

      Hahahaha I never knew how to use them either but slowly working my way up

    That fringed kimono is gorgeous. I think Iā€™d wear a bit more colour for a festival but I love the look.

    • June 13, 2016 / 8:19 am

      Thanks Fiona, I love adding colour to my wardrobe but currently playing with different options

  32. June 13, 2016 / 8:05 am

    Seriously love those wellies and the kimono is stunning. I hope you have fun at the festivals x

    • June 13, 2016 / 8:17 am

      Thanks Cathy, I am loving the kimono it’s gorgeous
