It's no Glastonbury...

So I've been home for the weekend and my little tiny town had their annual festival and it was splendiferous! Two days of amazing music, marvellous markets, an art competition and great food. All free and run by volunteers... it was fan-frickin-tastic!


These were my weekend outfits: excellent for faffing, foofing, frolicking and festivaling.

I wore: 
Wool dress, cardigan and belt - Op shopped 
Tights and boots - Retail
1960s carpetbag - Vintage store
Hair flowers - Made em myself

 I wore: 
Dress, bangles and belt - Op shopped 
Tights and boots - Retail
1960s scarf - Vintage Fair
Hair flowers - Made em myself
Bracelet - Gift from darling Em
 
I wore: 
About twenty layers of clothes that didn't go together 
but kept me warm as I was traipsing across fields 
to and from the festival in the freezing cold.


 I wore: 
1960s maxi - Gift from mi amor Helgita Burrita
Shawl - Op shopped 
Earrings - Gift from dear Sue
Small daisy headband - Gift from darling Desiree
Jumbo daisy headband - Made by Me


I wore: 
Vintage overalls - Fossil Vintage 
1970s handknit cardigan - Fash n Treasure market 

I'm pretty sure there's a rip in the space/time contiuum as that was the fastest two days ever. 

I did bring back a fresh supply of frocks - so you won't have to suffer the terrible shame of seeing the same frock twice in a week again. I do apologise for that, chaps.


This amazing young singer/songwriter/guitar freak Daniel Champagne was the highlight of Saturday night for me. If you have a chance to see him play live, do NOT miss out.

 
Hope your weekends were farking delightful!

Crazy over the double daisy head wear!
You make a cardigan and overalls look GOOOD Sarah.

The hair, the daisies, the handknit cardi, the leopard-print, the tan boots, the picture of the tree and light. All too much, I need that cardi this winter, I'm already imagining it.
Your hair looks better than usual, reminds me a bit of the lady in the video to Lucretia My Reflection by Sisters of Mercy - she tops you in the bitchface stakes though. Hard-faced, unlike you.

Sue said...

How I love your whole look in the first pic. Nothing quite like a bit of animal print!!! I would almost die for a vintage carpet bag, have loved those since Mary Poppins dragged one around!! FREE is such a pleasant word, and sadly not often used. A weekend at home in your little cottage sits well with you, you look lovely ♥

Miss Tallulah Porkchop said...

The first outfit - perfection from top to toe. You should wear your hair like that 24/7 - it is divine.

Heather said...

pastcaring said...

Hey, your festival may not be Glastonbury YET, but it can grow!
Look how beautiful your hair is down, wavy and wild and sexy... I feel a little breathless!
All your outfits are most festivalicious. I NEED some tan boots badly (keep looking on Ebay but no luck as yet), your carpet bag is stunning, and Double Daisies - wow!
I do think my very favourite photo is the last one - could you look any cuter and any happier? I think not! xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

What a darling selection of festival outfits. I think I may like your casual look in overalls best, but I'm quite digging the gingham maxi too. Way to work the floral head crowns.
