Festival Essentials With New Look

New Look kindly let me pick out a festival outfit. All thought are my own and I was not paid for this post.

Festival Essentials With New Look: Summer Essentials. Hello friends. So how are you today?

I have never been to a Music Festival. A few concerts, never a full blown music festival. So have you ever been to one?

Post Contains PR Samples.

It is something that is on my bucket list. Money and time permitting!!

Also, having a new puppy and 4 children it is not always easy arranging holidays and weekends away. So planning to go to a festival would be a big task.

Now the children are all growing up I think it is something they would really enjoy too. My eldest boys, love their music. Although a trip to a festival with their Mum might not be on their bucket list!!

Festival Essentials With New Look: Summer Essentials:

Festival Essentials With New Look. Every year I love to read all the fashion blogger posts, who have been to a festival. Reading all the fun stories they tell, what has happened and who they have seen.

Mostly I also like to see what they have been wearing.

Because festival fashion is so much fun. I especially like cut off jean shorts and wellies but it does not suit me. Every year it looks like wellies and tiny denim shorts are the most popular fashion garments too.

Last week New Look contacted me and asked me if I was going to a festival what would my Festival Essentials!?!

Interesting Question! 

For me a 40+ mum on a budget it would be something floaty, cool and bright. Mostly though something I could wear again for the school run!

I really like maxi dresses for a boohoo casual yet classic look. but they are no good if it rains. Which is fairly common for festivals in the UK.

What else?! A short dress? Mmm yes please. In my favourite colour, red of course!

Maybe some wellies and sandals for the change in weather?

I  got to pick an outfit from their Festival Shop so I can share my perfect festival style.

Ready To Rock The Festival:

Get ready to rock those festivals in style with New Look’s festival essentials! They have something for everyone, from boho chic to edgy glam, they have got everything you need to slay those summer vibes.

Start with a funky graphic tees or crochet crop tops for that effortlessly cool look. Pair them with distressed denim shorts or flowy skirts for maximum comfort and style while you dance the day away.

Don’t forget to top off your outfit with a fringed kimono or a statement jacket to keep you cozy when the sun goes down. And of course, no festival look is complete without some killer accessories!

Stack on the bracelets, layer on the necklaces, and finish it off with a pair of funky sunglasses to keep you looking fierce all day long. With New Look’s festival essentials, you’ll be the life of the party wherever you go.

    Your dress is gorgeous and perfect for a summer festival combined with wellies and a raincoat. I've been to loads of festivals over the years and it's definitely the thing I miss most about my pre-mum days! Thanks for sharing your review on #TriedTested this week x

    That looks so cool, light, and comfortable, and I LOVE wearing red! I used to go to music festivals often in my late teens/early 20s, but now I have a one year old, so going to another anytime soon isn't likely. Lol! However, this would be great for picnics and other outdoor parties. Isn't summer great?

      I love summer too, picnics are so much fun x
