Festival Chic

I am not going to lie to you. I am not a festival goer. Too old. Too fussy. Too scared of creepy crawlies scuttling across my face at night – or possibly dangling into my mouth – aaaaargh. But but but – what I do like, is shopping. So I bring you my top 10 Festival picks! Let’s go…

1. The beginning of any great kids outfit is Smalls. Made with super soft Merino Wool – don’t freak – keeps you warm in winter and cool in summer and best of all can be worn for days on end without  smelling. Spot on for festivals I say! Vest £26.95.
