Festival fashion love

So as we are approaching the British summer that always means one thing to me...festivals!!! I love the idea of festivals because it's a time people can at least pretend they are free spirited, if only for a few days, and then back to the day jobs. This time last summer I was living in a Van, wild camping in Cornwall with three Canadians (and I'm not making it up)...I loved living in sandals with the sand between my feet and good times and good music, which is what most festivals aim for. I also love how we still look back on the original Woodstock and early Glastonbury’s and people still pull out the florals and maxi dresses now, as if nothing changed. Although something that did change is we have more can be hippy or rocky, indie or eccentric. I also love to look back at old photos of Woodstock and just close my eyes and wish I had grown up during that time. My I also add...bring back some mellow tie-dye (not super vibrant colours...more like faded mellow)
