What Not To Wear To A Festival

This post was originally going to be called ‘what to wear to a festival’ but after attending Penn Fest and practically drowning in mud I had to admit my mistakes and decided to warn you all not to follow in my footsteps!

1. Don’t wear white shoes!

Okay, yes this should have been an obvious one, but as you all saw in my shoe collection video over on YouTube (here) I’m not really a trainer sort of person so white converse was all I had to work with. I say white, now they’re so caked in mud I doubt they’ll ever be able to be called that again…

2. Wear wellies!

If there’s even the slightest bit of rain you’re practically guaranteed to be drowning in mud. By the end of the night we were basically swimming around the field as we trekked through mud that was at least 3 inches deep. Wearing wellies would have made my life a lot easier I assure you. There are actually some very fashionable ones that you can get (examples here and here).

3. Don’t wear shorts!

If you can, try and stay clear of shorts. I don’t even want to think about what my legs looked like at the end of the night, I don’t think I’d ever seen legs so covered in mud! That definitely could have been avoided by wearing trousers and keeping my legs protected.

I did do some things right! I definitely recommend wearing a poncho, I wore a cheap one (the type you can get from practically any theme park) but you can get more stylish ones; Boohoo even offer them (here)! There were also some girls wearing transparent macs (like this), I thought these looked gorgeous, the more stylish alternative to a poncho. The poncho kept me dry and also protected me if I fell over in the mud (which thankfully I managed not to do).

I’d also recommend bringing your things in a backpack as it’s much easier to carry round than a handbag, you don’t want to be in a large crowd whilst lugging around a handbag.
