Once upon a time, when I was 17 years old, I went to a music festival. As I set off with my humongous bag on my back, I was excited. However, the excitement soon ended when my friends and I could not put up the tent. Frustrated, someone helped us in the end. My excitement ended when it was time for food. Being a naive 17 year old, I brought cans of baked beans, little boxes of cereal...please don't snigger!
Excitement ended when my friends thought it would be 'fun' to lock me in the tent, for three hours. Excitement ended when I realised my Cowboy boots just looked plain silly. Again, please don't snigger! My excitement ended when I smelled the toilets after three hours of continuous use by complete randomers. Yes, I am a wimp-a massive one!
I don't think I was ever so excited to leave the place. However, my excitement ended there also when we had to walk for 2 and a half hours in the sweltering heat, with this massive bag, just to get the bus.
As you can figure out, I am NOT really a festival girl. I'd be more in favour of festivals if there was a hotel on-site. But there never is, is there? I looked like I was dragged through a bush for the duration of the festival. Yet, when I see all these celebrities looking AMAZING in their designer gear at festivals, my heart drops. How do they do it?
One such celebrity who was AMAZING before (at the airport) and during the Glastonbury festival was Alexa Chung. There are no surprises there really though! She epitomises the way I want to dress. However, I neither have the figure nor the wallet to pull off her festival looks. But, hey a girl can dream right?!
What do you think of Alexa's style in the airport and at Glastonbury? My favourite is definitely where she is wearing just the shorts, casual shirt and those amazing Chloé flats. Casual, but perfect!
