What to pack for Reading and Leeds festival.

So Reading and Leeds is only a week away for the early birds.
Here are the key pieces I am taking and a few tips to help you out.

The most important part: A decent rucksack! I’m taking one for my clothing and toiletries and me and my boyfriend are sharing one for food and alcohol.

The rucksack is from Free People, they have a good selection.

Pack for all weathers

Wellies and a coat/waterproof are essential! Lets face it, you know what the weather in the UK is like. A scarf is good to wrap up warm in the evenings (you can also wear this one as a skirt or dress, it’s very versatile) and a dress is a very good space saver. Don’t forget to take a pair of trousers as well as shorts, you can never guarantee it’ll be hot, even if the sun is out. This top from Free People is also very versatile and I feel like magic in it! Ankle boots are good for hot weather, and protect your feet at the same time. To add that extra something i’m going to be stacking up my fingers full of rings.

The Wax jacket is vintage from a stall at Leeds festival last year. The circle scarf is from American Apparel http://store.americanapparel.co.uk/product/?productId=rsa0503#, the dress is from Urban Outfitters by Sparkle and Fade, and my wellies are Hunters http://www.hunter-boot.com (The best kind of wellies).

The top is from Free People http://www.freepeople.co.uk/we-the-free-circle-in-the-sand-tee-27161017/, boots, jeans and necklace are from Topshop.

The shorts are from Rokit vintage store in London. http://www.rokit.co.uk/, and the skirt is from Free People.

The small turquoise ring is from a small shop in Canterbury called Siesta, and the three midi rings are from Etsy http://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/Holylandstreasures?ref=shop_sugg. Holylands Treasures create beautiful jewellery all from Silver, Gold and Rose Gold.

My double turquoise stone ring is from Free People.

Cosmetic essentials
Do not forget your suncream, I’ve been burnt many a time and have finally learnt from experience. A good eyelash curler and clear mascara can be used for a natural day time look, and clear mascara can also be used on your brows. Elizabeth Arden 8 hour protectant and The Green Balm by Moa are my favourite multi purpose products and can be used on anything from lips, to brows, and also medically for burns and bites.  A good concealer applied with a brush and sunglasses to hide those dark circles from the late nights partying. Surf spray to add texture to your hair when you want to spruce it up half way through the week. Clarins Flash Beauty Balm to brighten up your skin, and last but not least dry shampoo and a brush! It’s all about packing light, so multi purpose products are key.
