As you all know already from my Snapchat and Instagram, I spent the last weekend in Oxfordshire at the Wilderness Festival with Swarovski. I have to say that it was by far the most beautiful festival I have ever been to. How is it different? Well, Wilderness gathers people of every age, and when I say EVERY age, I mean it. You’ll be dancing with toddlers, sharing a table with people of your grandparent’s age and “style competing” with your age pals, which is an absolutely amazing feeling of diversity. Ironically enough, it is the musical event where you actually won’t care about the music just because you will be drawn away by the fun activities, amazing food and beautiful cool lake.
As much as I wish to have more time getting my outfits ready for festivals, somehow I always end up putting them together at the last minute. This time I really wanted to create looks around my Swarovski jewellery, which was lots of fun because the jewellery is quite different so I was able to experiment with wearing different cuts and pieces.
And here is some more about what I wore:
My first outfit was completely inspired by the “Coachella” look. Bell sleeves, face crystals, gypsy hair and temporary tattoos making my perfect Boho festival look. Strangely for some, I went for silver tone jewellery even though I had a golden skirt on. I’ve never been stereotypical when it comes to mixing those two, and the metallic shade of the skirt actually reflects some kind of whitish colour which makes it the perfect match for silver tones.
On the second day I wore a much more comfortable and simple look with biker boots, a blue romper and a matchy backpack. I kept my earrings on and added the Distinct bangle in rose gold-tone to break up the silver and blue with some extra sparkle.
For the third outfit I finally got to wear the beautiful Daphne necklace from Swarovski, which I’m completely obsessed with. The big crystals with different colours reflect really nicely in sunlight and the butterfly covered in crystals in the middle keeps on sparkling. My outfit is very simple to re-create and add into your casual style, denim overall, white crop top and biker boots. However, in order to make it a festival look I added a poppy crown and painted some cute little flowers in the same colour on my left cheek.
Thanks to Swarovski for having us at Wilderness, it was a really awesome experience and the best way to end our summer travelling.
P.S. I’m excited to know your opinion, my loves! Which one was your favourite outfit, or which one would you re-create for a festival? And make sure to send me pics if you do!
