Festival season is one of my faves and I especially love Latitude. Chilled, relaxed vibes with woodland near by? Sounds pretty perfect to me…
The first Lake Rule? Don’t go with the flow. Suits me..
If you have NO idea what I’m talking about, I’m referring to Latitude. Latitude is an annual music festival that takes place in Henham Park, Suffolk, England. It’s bright, fun and most of all – very friendly. It was my first time at Latitude and I have to say, I loved it. The bohemian, natural and woodland vibe was right up my street and definitely a festival I will be returning to!
I was sent along to the festival (alongside my photographer, Chris) with the amazing clothing brand FatFace to capture some snaps of the day and tell you all about my festival fashion. FatFace had a cute little boat house on the lake at Latitude this year and were in charge of all things LAKE! The weather was a scorcher so the queue to take a dip in the lake was pretty hectic – as well as people shopping for Latitude branded FatFace tee’s in the boathouse.
So, my outfit. I was after comfort, because in the heat.. no body got time for sore feet and sweaty bodies. I picked out these very comfy sandals which I felt would compliment any outfit choices. With the heat being full on, they kept my toes cool and I was blister free all day long. Result.
Then next up was this cute brick orange cardigan. Admittedly, I didn’t think I’d need it but at some places throughout the day, the shade could be a little chilly. It was light enough to keep me cool and warm all at the same time and I just adore the colour.

THE SHOE FACTOR
I always opt for the comfort factor when it comes to shoes and FatFace are my first stop. With a big array of lovely, boho styled sandals it was tough to choose just one pair! Here’s my top 4 styles and why they’re perfect for your Summer festival inspired outfits…
These were my picks, super simple and perfect for just popping on and off in a hurry. These would be amazing with a little white dress on the beach or with a more casual pair of jeans and hoody for an evening BBQ, mmmm.
Next up are the double strap version, which if you like your sandals slightly more secure, these are the ones! Again perfect for a casual outfit and super easy to pop on and I love how chunky these look, super flattering for those super pins of yours!
I can picture it now – white floaty dress, flowers in your hair, bohemian tassel bag and these beautiful sandals. These are so easy to wear, pair with absolutely everything and super flattering too. Deal. I’m sold.
The fashion sandal of the century, the Gladiator. I feel that these sandals can “fashion up” any outfits and make them on-trend in seconds. Comfort and fashion doesn’t usually mix well, so make the most of it.
Did you say, dunagree?
I never thought I’d wear dunagrees. I have a very long body and well.. without being graphic, let’s just say they don’t work very well! I have found a few stars from brands recently and these included! FatFace make clothes that fit real women and for that, I love them. I love the above and want every. single. colour. option. Pop on with some cute sandals and a cardi for the perfect festival outfit. There’s also some longer versions which you can see here.. again, loving these too. See more over on the website.
These cardigans are the perfect outfit companion. I have really been enjoying a good ol’ cardi again recently, I love the retro feel they have but also how they “jazz” up an outfit. Adding colour is super easy with a cardigan and I love the variety that FatFace have.. this is basically my life colour scheme! These Ally cardigan’s are very neutral, earthy tones… aka the bohemian dream. I chose the red, which is also slightly orange in the right light as I felt this would be perfect with so many outfits and colour combos! Which one is your fave?
