TSOP were lucky enough to be invited to Kendal Calling Festival last weekend with the wonderful Boohoo.com and we had such an amazing weekend! I went with my friend from work Charlotte from Friday until Sunday.
The festival which is located in Penrith in the Lake District was absolutely stunning and surprisingly it was only one 3 hour train from London! We felt like we were on holiday all weekend with the stunning settings, lakes, greenery and cider on tap.... Makes a massive change from London!
We stayed in a cute little hotel in Penrith called Elm House, the room was stunning including a walk in shower and amazing full english breakfast! It made a nice change to camping and got to have a nice hot shower, warm bed and cooked breakfast. Now I understand while people do luxury camping! As much as I love getting muddy and smelly it was nice to have best of both worlds :-)
We were lucky enough to have VIP bands and spent most of our weekend drinking yummy cocktails in the VIP bar and hanging out on the amazing pink Boohoo bus! We met the lovely girls from Boohoo who we're so much fun especially Rosie who works for boohoo & also runs a fantastic blog- www.rosie-glow.co.uk. We also got some Boohoo goodies including a studded transparent clutch, floral garland and sunnies!
The festival vibe was so chilled out and cool and there was so much to do! Random pirate ships, the woodland stage amazing door, Sailor Jerry bar... The list goes on! It was such a good all round festival if you want a weekend full on fun and I found it was just the right size that it didn't take forever to walk everywhere which is always a bonus! On Friday we saw Basement Jaxx who were amazing and on Saturday we saw Ash and discovered a new band called the 'The Thingamubob & The Thingamajigs' who had us in stitches and singing along to songs like 'the sound of the monkey' and 'mr rabbit' we highly recommend to check these guys out!
Lets talk clothes... Both Charlotte and myself have massively brought into the whole festival look this summer and working for Topshop we couldn't get away from it so we thought we might aswell embrace the hippy season! You don't have to tell us twice to rock feather headdresses, floral garlands, lots of texture and prints and general festival amazingness!
I was in love with my outfit on Saturday and I had so many comments and people asking where it was from! I was so proud it was head to toe Boohoo which you can shop my look HERE
I wore the Aztec co-ord but turned the top around so it was open at the front and could wear a crop top underneath, the print is stunning and so right for festivals! I layered it up with a black fringed kimono and Boohoo leather Gilet which was an amazing piece for the weekend that I could throw over any outfit and look great. Thank god for my Boohoo wellies which saved my life in the Saturday night shower! I loved them as they looked like black chunky studded boots but In welly form, I will definitely be taking these to Bestival in September! A must have for the festival season. Accessorised with black floral head garland which as you can see in my photos they have made a massive comeback for the season and are a must at a festival! Mine was from Boohoo and I haven't took it of my head since! I love that its black flowers as it makes my outfit feel a bit more grungy and dark and not as pretty.
I wore a simple Aztec necklace and crochet bag and added detailing with a fishnet sock and gold bindi for that festival ethnic feel!
I hope you have enjoyed reading about my weekend at Kendal Calling and I hope you enjoyed my outfit as much as I did! Head over to boohoo.com for affordable and amazing pieces including what I wore and be sure to check out Kendal Calling next year for a guaranteed fun weekend!
