Hello! This post is a follow up from my Blissfields roundup. I took quite a lot of clothes to the festival, probably more than I needed! In addition to the festival basics of denim shorts and wellies (which were, thankfully, not needed!) I brought quite a few dresses with me so I'm going to show you some of my faves!
1. The floral floaty dress
I was so excited when I purchased this dress in Topshop Oxford Circus last year. I love the bright floral colours and the sheer floaty fabric. I teamed it with my floral crown for a 'fairy-like' feel. I've tended to stick to plain white dresses this summer so I brought back some colour for the festival.
2. Floral dress
I got this dress in a thrift store in Canada in 2011, and shortened it. I love the contrast of the bright colours with the black.
3. TK Maxx bargain
My obsession with broderie anglaise began some time around March this year and has continued to grow. The texture is beaautiful and was a bargain at £14.99!
4. Flower crown
Flower crowns are everywhere and I was a bit dubious at first - I didn't think they would suit me. But the day before I left for Blissfields I decided to give them a go! My mum helped me to make a flower crown of real flowers based on the NastyGal youtube tutorial: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PSyLxSlGzag
My real flower crown (worn in the pic with 'Jaws') was beautiful but sadly did not last the whole weekend with the hot weather. However, at the festival there was a stall in which you could make your own flower crown for £5. It took me a bit longer than I expected (around 3 hours!) but I was really pleased with the end result.
