When I dress for a festival, I usually pick an outfit that will move with me all day. Something that's super comfortable, yet also cute. I wore this exact outfit (minus the hat, which I just bought at the Robson Valley Music Festival last weekend) to the Wild Mountain Music Festival in Hinton last month, and it did the trick. The hat, though, is an amazing addition to my festival garb. I am in mad love with felted anything, so this little gem had to come home with me last weekend.
Another awesome part of my getup is my fanny pack. I used to be a hater, but while I was putting this outfit together last month, I realized a fanny pack was the perfect addition to a festival outfit. By wearing one, I didn't have to worry about a purse, my wallet or cellphone. I just tuck my money and phone into my hip purse and off I went. I didn't even notice it while I was dancing!
Also, notice the glasses? They're my new ones from Firmoo. So far, of the three pairs I bought, these ones are my favourites. I love that they're blue instead of black and I'm just now getting used to the shape on my face. It's funny how you can get so used to seeing yourself in one pair and then as soon as you switch it up your brain takes some adjusting to get used to the new look.

Another important thing to note about festival outfits, at least around these parts, is that you never know what the weather is going to do. So be sure to have a beach bag or backpack full of layers and rain gear. I learned my lesson the hard way in Hinton and ended up wet and cold for a better part of the evening. I was much wiser last weekend and had my raincoat, pants, warm socks and even my rubber boots along for the ride, and, I'll have you know, I used each and every item.
