The Ultimate Festival Style Wishlist (Part II)

So, as promised, here's the second part of my ultimate festival fashion wishlist! After going over my inspirations for special showpieces, festival denims and footwear in part one, today I'm looking at pieces to keep you warm, wonderful textures and prints to play with and accessories! Essentially, this is an excuse for me to gather up all the things I've been eyeing up since the S/S collections have rolled out.
WARMERS: We've been bowing down and saying our prayers to the sun gods ahead of this summer's festivities. However, we all know that no matter how glorious the days are, the nights are always bloomin' freezing. (Nine) For the perfect balance between being super snug, whilst still retaining that free-spirited boho vibe, I adore this fringed kimono cardigan from ASOS. Chuck it on over anything for the cooler evenings. (Ten) Okay, whilst you probably don't need a blanket quite this pretty for a festival, if you can find a fun, printed sleeping bag or blanket, it'll certainly brighten up the whole sleeping in a tent situation, fo'sure.
PRINTS & TEXTURES: The best bit! There's no better time than a festival for playing around clashing prints and juxtaposing textures. (Eleven) These are some of my favourite looks that have been floating around on pinterest. Luckily, the high street is doing a pretty spectacular job of things itself at the moment. I'm can't express enough how much I love these lace/crochet/embellished combos. Mixing 70s shapes and ideas with tribal detailing, it'd be the simplest thing to thrown on with shorts to create the biggest, festival statement look. If you're a fan of authentic 70s styling, head over to Novella Royale. Just how amazing is this printed top/shirt pairing (pictured: bottom left).
ACCESSORIES: Again it's time to look back to our mid-century idols and have fun with extravagant adornments. (Twelve) Sunglasses are having a moment right now aren't they? Take heed from this glamorous, glittery, 50s style pair from Miu Miu and go bold with your eye candy! I can't wait to get more wear out of this pair. (Thirteen) I'm obsessed with fringing at the moment, which it's great as it's everywhere. I'm going to be searching on ebay to see if I can find a reasonably priced, Moroccan handbag. The quality looks amazing so it'll be sure to last for years to come. (Fourteen) Dahlia have just launched a wonderful collection of jewellery and accessories as part of their S/S 13, which includes this stunning gold toned, stone pendant. Layer over a plain tee, stick on a fedora, party. (Fifteen) Last but by no means least, glitter, glitter, glitter up! Who doesn't wanna look like a crazy glitterball, whilst dancing around in the sun?

Hope you enjoyed this mini feature, don't forget to check out part I if you missed it yesterday, or link me up with your own festival wishlists! Would love to see them!

Have a fun bank holiday weekend.
Much love,
