“Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it” – my all-time favourite quote from Ferris Bueller.
There are two essentials for a festival bag. It absolutely must be secure, for when you’re too close for comfort with a bunch of festival goers who are high on life and God knows what else, and you definitely cannot mind it getting a little mud and beer on it!
My personal opinion would be that you don’t want to be left holding anything, or even thinking about anything else, so a cross body bag or a belt bag (bum bag) would be a wise choice, leaving your arms as free as the wind! Here are a few of my favourites on sale now.
Above: F&F Clothing, Ikat Mini Beaded Cross Body Bag, only £10. Great festival look, perfect for matching with crochet or just a plain tee and shorts to add detail.
Above: Oasis Jemima Satchel, was £25 but now only £18 in the sale. Secure and big enough for your rain mac!
Above: Oasis Canvas Cross Body Bag, £28 and I think well worth it! I love this bag, the gold with the tan colour is so attractive and having two zipped pockets inside would be so handy to separate your valuables. Very tempted to buy this myself!
Above: Oasis (sorry for plugging Oasis so much but they always have so many gorgeous bags!) Celeste Leather Foldover Bag, £40. Very secure again, and a great pop of colour but in-keeping with the browns and neutral tones that come with festival outfits.
Above: Missguided Tuple Cross Body Zip Saddle Bag, £14.99. Black's a safe colour, goes with almost everything, and this comes complete with a tassel to compliment your festival look. And for this price, you can't go wrong!
Above: I love this ASOS Scallop Detail Bum Bag, £18 but currently out of stock, sadly, or I'd have snapped one up! Perfect colour and detail, plus with this guarding all your belongings, you're completely free to jump around like a crazy person! Keeping my eyes peeled on ASOS for when it's back.
I’m heading to V Festival in a few weeks so check back for my top festival outfits. I've got so many bags but I still manage to find a particular size, style, or colour that I don't already own. My brown leather Oasis bag (review blog here) works well, but it's leather so I'd be worried about a clumsy pint drenching it! Must buy another :P
Enjoy wherever you’re going, share your festival #ootd pics, and never forget to stop and look around once in a while…
