I don’t know where my head has been at recently but I feel like I’ve blinked and suddenly it’s t-minus 1 month until I go to Glastonbury and I am nowhere near prepared. My summer wardrobe is looking barer than ever. The thought of packing for 5 days at a music festival currently fills me with fear.
I’m not one to go all out for a festival. You are living out of a tent after all. There’s only so much you can do. But I do like to look halfway decent. A little glitter eyeliner and a fun playsuit to get me in the mood to stomp around in wellies for several miles.
This will be my first year at Glasto and I’m planning on taking many, many pictures to commemorate the occasion. I’d like to be able to look back at them and not think ‘Jesus, what was I wearing?’ So I’ve been frantically compiling a list of festival fashion items to add to my currently meagre collection.

Dressing for a British music festival is always a bit of a game of risk. Will it be so hot that you can’t physically bear to be in your tent for longer than a half hour? Or will it pour down for days on end and reduce the campsite to a boggy mire? Who can tell. Perhaps that’s why the Brits like to get so wasted at festivals. If you’re pissed on cans of supermarket lager, the weather is the last of your concerns.
My usual attire is a dress or crop top and shorts, with a pair of tights and some layers packed in a rucksack. Plus the compulsory, although horribly unflattering, pack-away rain mac. If the sun suddenly disappears, I like to be prepared. And I am certainly not above wearing a bum bag. Stylish or not, they are incredibly handy. I’ve stolen my mum’s old one for my last few festivals.
