How to look good in mud: Festival Fashion

Bleeh….I’m in a bad mood. First of all, it has been raining for days and days. It’s a typically Dutch rainy summer that feels more like fall. Second, I was supposed to go to a festival in Poland (to see my favorite bands the Raveonettes and Sons & Daughters), but it has been cancelled :-(.  So now I’m telling myself that the weather will get better (ofcourse) and there are lots of other outdoor gigs to go to (ofcourse). In a couple of weeks I’m going to see Blur in Hyde Park, so please please please dear weather gods, let the weather be nice!

Never understood why all girls walk in Wellies. Sure, they are waterproof, but they walk like shit.

hatMuch better: sunhats.

I love everything on this girl, her hair, the sunglasses and a pretty dress. Too cute.

    I love my wellies. I’m sorry you missed the Ravonettes. I bet they are amazing live.

      I tried to walk in them at the Lowlands festival, but after two days of walking I had horrible back pain and couldn’t bend my back anymore…very impractical when you’re sleeping in a tent.
      I’m glad you didn’t have this experience.
      And yeah, they are amazing live, I’ve seen them a couple of times before, but they don’t seem to play in Europe that often anymore.

        Ouch! You are right, I would not think fondly of any shoe after tha happened to me! I live in a rural area of the States, so mucking around our property for a few hours is alot different than wearing them for days at a time. My biggest problem is getting them off. They like to suction themselves to my foot!

  3. Have you been to South Korea? Korea has Mud Fesival every year, lots of fun!

      No, I have never been to South Korea and I’ve never heard of teh Mud festival before…..but I found it on Google and gosh, i didn’t even know something like that existed!
