day outfit: boots - Asos, necklace - Sweet Deluxe via Zalando, everything else - H&M
This weekend I went to the "Food For Your Senses" festival, which is one of the most popular festivals in Luxembourg. For me it was the first time that I also camped on a festival ground and it was quite hard for me to know what to pack and what to leave at home. So now that I'm back and wiser I thought it would be nice to make a little festival guide for you. Today I will start off with fashion, thus the clothes and accessories you should take to a festival to cut a fine figure. Tomorrow I will round off the guide with a festival beauty special where I will tell you what you really need to look good, even after three days of partying and sleeping in a tent.
Unfortunately I didn't take my camera to the festival ground because it was so hot and I didn't want to risk to damage it. If you're interested in seeing and hearing a bit about my actual festival experience I recommend following my Instagram account where I'm publishing some pictures I took with my phone.

So this is my list of things to take to a festival and of things which you can definitely leave at home. Most of them speak for themselves, like the rubber boots (which you should also take if the weather is supposed to be good all weekend as they come in really handy at night when it's cold outside or in the morning when the grass is wet with dew). Then I also had the chance to own a really small and cute rucksack which was super useful as it held a small bottle of water, sunscreen, my phone, some money and a little snack (which is basically all you need on the festival ground). Flipflops and bikini are not only useful when you want to chill in the sun, but also help you to use the public showers without disagreeableness. The hat and sunnies will perfectly protect you from the hot sun and allow you to stay out all day. For the fashionable and not only functional ladies I added a maxi dress and a flower crown which will make you look really chilled and pretty. Basically I have noticed that prints, kimonos and sheer lace are really popular on festivals but of course also the festival fan shirts. You should however buy yours right on the first day and still wear it during the festival as you may not wear it once you're back in reality. If you want to take jewellery I recommend taking anything that can handle sun and liquids, like braided wristbands or plastic jewellery. And that's where we have arrived on the other side of the list. You should definitely leave everything at home which is of a special value or which you absolutely don't want to be ruined like expensive jewellery, your favourite evening gown or white pants (which won't stay white for a long time as you will be sitting on the ground a lot!). Of course high heels and clutches are far away from being convenient as well. Oh and in case you're wondering why I recommend leaving at home your playsuit... Well think about festival toilets which are dirty and which you will probably need to attend quite often - not the right place for difficult undressing or clothes that hang down to the floor.
I hope that this was a little helpful for the festival beginners and I hope that you'll also check out my beauty special tomorrow. Have you guys planned to go to a festival this summer? If yes which one and what do you take there?
