I’m very excited to be jumping on a plane tonight and heading to my favourite weekend of the year – Glastonbury Festival. The lead up to the festivities requires an almost zen-like ability to avoid the weather forecast – a trait I clearly don’t possess as the last few weeks have seen me frantically clicking between every weather source hoping to get a favourable report, with varying levels of exhilaration and depression depending on the (always completely vague) predictions. Two weeks ago it was all good – sunshine and byo sunscreen was the name of the game, but in true British weather style that’s quickly turned to heavy rain and mountains of mud predicted. Oh well! Nothing’s going to stop me enjoying what has turned into an annual pilgrimage, although sunshine would be nice – if only to keep the water table from threatening our tent. In an ode to the weather gods, I decided to put together the ultimate ‘if it stops raining for half an hour’ Glastonbury festival outfit – complete with DIY kimono and distressed shorts. Consider this my anti rain dance! Although after attending four previous glastos I’m can’t help but be aware that in all likelihood it will be my wellies and not my DIY fringed kimono, shorts, and sunhat which get a workout this weekend, but a girl can dream right?
Stayed tuned to instagram for outfit, music and weather updates over the course of the weekend.
