Festival Fever...

I always look forward to Summer time in the UK ... I'm guessing you're all thinking why you crazy mouse?! Well it obviously isn't the amazing weather (last year our summer weather lasted for one weekend in April), the disgustingly humid tubes or laid back pace of life; It is of course the Festivals! 

I know we're all sad about the lack of Glastonbury this year...but we do need portoloos for the olympics so all shall be forgiven, plus now you have some time and cash freed up to try some newbies! We have a pretty good festival scene, pulling in artists from all over the world, everyone gets together puts their egos aside and jumps around like they are children AND actually smile at one another...a rarity in London! Most years if we're lucky, we get semi sunny weather thrown in, but if not everyone is so used to our bipolar climate that they brave it anyway, we simply LOVE festival fever! 

Living just down from Victoria Park, Lovebox is a definite, however it isn't just the proximity from my flat that makes me go, it is actually one of my favourites! The people watching is immense and the line-up is always impressive! I clearly remember in 2009 when Grove Armada headlined it was 9pm on a Sunday night, in the warm summer air and 'At The River' was drifiting out to a chilled crowd and then ramped up to 'Superstylin' and everyone went insane! It was so much fun; there and then I fell in love with Lovebox!! Peruse this years line-up and get your tickets quick...

Right line ups done, festivals picked, now for the biggest MOST important element...Festival Fashion! 

You can sit there and say, I go for the music I don't care what I wear, but that is SO not true (and if it is true then it's SO not right!) All part of the fun is putting together your best festival wardrobe and looking festi-hot!

Coachella, dear to all celeb hearts and ours alike, is a great place to spy the festival trends for the year! As it always takes place just before our festival season kicks off, it's great for some inspiration! This year shorts scored very high in the fashion stakes ... denim, patterned, ripped, high waisted, hotpants - they were plastered upon every fashionista! Fringing was still huge - adding a cute boho edge, suede cowboy boots adorned the feet of many, maxi dresses, ombre and cropped tops ... the list goes on, take a little peak of our favs below:

I know how hard it is to find time to scour shops, websites and magazines to find the right look or accessories to make an outfit for such an occassion work! So, I thought why not take the pain away and do it for you ... see my top festival picks that you can snap up right now and be disco done for Lovebox on 15th June, the first of many....
