Summer Series: Styling Festival Wellies

With festivals cropping up here there and everywhere, and my huge jealousy for those lucky ones that attended Coachella, I decided to put together a few suitable outfits. I’m a huge fan of the festival vibe, bohemian look, but sadly only ever get to wear these pretty clothes on holiday where it’s positively warmer than the UK.

When the guys from Equestrian Clearance got in touch with me about their wellingtons, considering Creamfields was cancelled half way through last year from the sheer amount of rain, I knew they’d be perfect for festival outfits.  photo Look1_zps0f5fc35a.jpgHat, Playsuit, Bag, Wellingtons 

I love this slouchy detailed playsuit from River Island, and teamed with a hat your locks will be kept under control.  photo Look2_zps66146411.jpgVest, Shorts, Bag, Wellingtons, Bangle 

This grunge style look will get heads turning with those galaxy print shorts and studded bag. Simple but stylish.  photo Look3_zps5f5078f0.jpg Blouse, Jacket, Shorts, Wellingtons, Satchel, Sunglasses 

Layer up with this sophisticated jacket and gorgeous embroidered blouse. With a pair of sunglasses and a bold bag, you’ll be ready for those (infrequent) rays.  photo Look4_zps31c376a9.jpgPinafore, Shirt, Wellingtons, Rucksack, Socks, Crown 

This is my favourite look out of all four. The cute motel shirt tucked underneath a pinafore with knee high socks and a rucksack might scream school girl, but it also emits a cute and trendy look topped with a girly flower crown, guaranteed to attract jealous eyes.

Wellies might not be the most comfiest of shoes, but they’re certainly the most practical (hi mum) and these block colour Equestrian Clearance ones are plain enough to not clash with prints in your outfit, but cool enough to avoid the farmer vibe. 

What will you be wearing at festivals this summer?

  1. I like the outfits but the Wellingtons seem a little out of place. I know you partnered with the brand but that's just how I feel. I'm not hating! >< But, i agree with you, the last outfit is certainly the cutest although I have a soft spot for one. :)
