Summer = Festivals, Part 3

Sorry its been sooo long since my last festival post! But here's my final one, and it's about Festival fashion. With Reading, Bestival, Green man and many others round the corner, I thought I'd better hurry up and get this one posted!
When I got to festivals, comfort (and warmth!) is usually key; in the UK this means wellies and pack-a-macs as you can guarantee an English summer will include rain at some point! I like to be comfy and warm, able to carry around all my things (alcohol, money and toilet roll!) and to still look good. I may as well face it I will never look as fashionable or as glamorous as the celebrities!
So below I though I'd show some of my essentials for festivals- other things I'd consider essentials would be leggings/tights/socks, a hoodie, jeans and some light tops t-shirts to layer underneath- oh an maybe a beanie or two!
1)  High waisted vintage hotpants £28- Topshop, 2)  Knitted rib crop sweat £32- Topshop, 3)  Printed pac-a-mac £20- Warehouse, 4)  Sunglasses £17.99- Zara, 5)  Love heart shopper £15- Topshop,  6) Original tall Welly £85- Hunter,  7)  Ditsy Collar dress £22- Dorothy Perkins

I thought I'd include hunters as they're been on my wishlist for agges- I always take wellies with me to festivals, and my old green dunlop ones have seen me through many years... but I really want some hunters! Sunglasses are to hide your eye bags after too many late nights, and the rest speaks for itself I think- pack-a-mac keeps you dry, the bag is easy and light and carries all your things, while the dress, jumper and shorts are easy to style and look great at festivals (with wellies!)

What do you normally wear to festivals (or would wear)? Do you have key pieces you can't live without or would never dream of wearing wellies and take sandals instead (good luck to you!)?
