Festival Dressing | Fun with Fashion over 40 | Link Up

Denim Dungarees and Leopard Clogs | Fake Fabulous

Summer festivals are not just for the teens and twenty-somethings.
In fact, we over 40's were the original rave and festival goers!
We were the pioneers.

We've been there and done that... with bells on!

Denim Dungarees and Leopard Clogs | Fake Fabulous

Unfortunately, I'm not off to an old skool rave party here (more's the pity).

I was just staying at home, sitting in the garden reading a book and relaxing (hardcore eh?!) BUT my husband did comment that I looked like I was off to a music festival and it made me think...

I know the festival season is almost over but festival dressing is the perfect opportunity to have as much fun as possible with fashion.

Absolutely ANYTHING goes when it comes to personal festival style, and no one would bat an eyelid no matter how extreme your outfit was.

This ensemble would be tame to the point of boring!

Denim Dungarees and Leopard Clogs | Fake Fabulous

At home, I often wear clothes that don't get a regular public outing but on this occasion, I was wearing my well-worn dungarees.
The difference was that I don't normally wear them with just a bra top!

On this occasion, I wasn't going anywhere (except taking Jake for a walk that evening, but that doesn't count as I was wearing trainers and a waterproof jacket!) but I would replicate this outfit in a heartbeat if I was heading to a festival!

{Disclaimer: You'd probably need to substitute the clogs for wellies here in Scotland!}

Did you get up to mischief where you were in your 20's?
Were you a 'secret' raver like me?

Did you enjoy music festivals?
Do you still enjoy them now?
I'd love to hear all about it!

DUNGAREES: JohnnieB (Very old and from the teen section at Boden)
TOP & NECKLACE: Charity shopped
CLOGS: Lotta
BAG: Topshop (old).. try this.

Last week Suzy really caught my eye, not only with her simple and chic outfit but with her story from the Algarve.


Pop over for a read HERE... and a closer look at her amazing abs!!

  2. Sam, you’re rockin’ the festival style and you look fabulous! Around my parts, huge music festivals are attended by people of all ages (I’ve been to a couple in recent years). It’s boho on steroids which I adore. Thanks for sharing your styling inspirations and for hosting. I hope you had a wonderful weekend.

  11. Would you believe I've never been to a festival, Sam?!! I know, I haven't lived! The thing is, I'm not a big fan of lots of people, crowds ugh.... makes me feel all claustrophobic! However, I do like the idea of dressing for a festival LOL! Your outfit, for instance, is spot on for me. And, guess what? I finally found a pair dungarees YAY! They're black, from H&M in the sales. But it's too hot here to wear them just yet!
    THANK YOU so much for featuring me. I did laugh with the abs comment!!!!!!!

  12. Such a cute outfit Sam! I love the leopard touches and those are fab overalls, I love the straight leg style. I went to a Jazz festival in Chicago years ago and had a great time, and I love rock concerts.

  13. The fact that you were into raves shows you are much younger than I.

    It was head bangers and Led Zeppelin back in the day and no one was dressed up for a concert. It was just jeans and tees.

    Every time I see you wearing overalls I think how great they look on you. Then I try them out on myself and look like a chubby clown. Ha!

    1. Hahahahaha... you've just not found the right pair Suzanne.
      It's not your fault, it's the dungarees.
      Keep looking.
      Going to raves was much the same dressing-up wise.
      Old shoes (DM's) as they got very muddy.
      Baggy, oversized jeans or gents trousers.
      A VERY tight tee or strappy vest top.
      Floppy hat and a whistle.
      Done!
      :oP

  14. Hooray for overalls! They just keep making a reappearance every 10/15 years and it's hard to find a more comfy piece of clothing. Your look is boho beautiful and the peak at your midriff makes it fun and a tiny bit daring. What's not to love?
    I graduated from high school the same year as the iconic Woodstock festival but although I've done many concerts I've not gone to a festival. Something for my bucket list!!

    1. There's nothing quite like it Judy!
      It's like a great big party with loads to see and do.
      So much fun.

  15. Such a fun outfit! I've never camped at a festival, although I've been to Reading and Donington, but just for a day on both occasions. When my daughter's a bit older I want to go to one for a weekend...glamping maybe...that's if I'm not an embarrassment by then!
