The summer feels like it's slipping away far too quickly, but fear not the summer festivals are still very much in full swing. With this in mind I've decided to create a little shopping list of musts to take with you.
You can't obviously pack the world when going to a festival, because unlike going on holiday you can't cart a case through the field... it all goes on your back. With that in mind you need to pack items that have been carefully considered and more importantly versatile.
What to pack
You will always need a small side bag for your purse and phone - ideally something you can zip up.
Denim shorts are a must as you can take different tops and wear the same shorts
take 3-4 different ones as you can team these up with your staple denim shorts
You can't go wrong! You know it will rain at somepoint...
Same reason as above!
Take a few different kinds as these will make your outfits a bit different
It might get chilly later on
I love to take my onesie with me as I always get so cold in a tent at night.

Onto nightwear... now I made myself swear that the next time I went to a festival I would pack something warm to wear in bed. I can't stand being stuck in a tent and cold! This actually also applies to when you go camping but a onesie is your best friend in these situations
You can get up and go to the toilet in the middle of the night if needed without looking like a fool... or freezing further! Genius.
I have a new one from OnePiece that is a paisley pattern - perfect for festivals this season. It's nice and light for summer but warm enough that you won't freeze in your tent!
This particular snazzy onesie was so popular it sold out... Boo! But fear not there are numerous you can chose from and you can get an amazing 15% discount with my EXCLUSIVE discount code. (If it's not working let me know!)
There you have some good little pointers for packing for a festival this summer. Off to any that are coming up? I know we have Creamfields this weekend - are you heading up to it?
