Festival Wardrobe Panic – we have it covered

June officially kick starts the festival season, and with Glastonbury taking place this weekend and Sunny weather forecasted, the Barnardo’s Retail team and I couldn’t be more excited!

We have spent weeks channelling our inner boho chic and mentally planning outfits and looks for the weekend, but when it comes to packing I personally find myself frantically pulling everything I own out of the wardrobe. 

I absolutely loved some of the looks for Coachella earlier this year, especially the supermodels of the moment that were showcasing some serious festival style.

Sadly not many of us have the bank balance of a supermodel and whilst you have already spent a small fortune on your ticket, transport, tent and everything else that goes with it, the thought of shelling out even more on clothes is utterly terrifying. Especially as we know all too well that most items do not make it home in one piece!

With this is mind I went on a serious festival fash hunt in my local Barnardo’s over the weekend, and found some absolute gems!

My first find of the day were some amazing ASOS tribal patterned shorts – it was fate and I feel in love instantly at only a mere £3.99!!!

Boho Shorts

Outfit number 2 was quickly sorted when I spotted this fab little River Island Aztec mini – perfect teamed with a black vest and some chunky silver accessories.

River Island Skirt

And again a bargain at only £3.99!

My last find was this simple yet still on trend embellished white vest, still with the tags on at only £1.99!


This will look fabulous teamed with some ripped denim cut off shorts and wellies, or ankle grazer jeans (because let’s face it we know all too well about the British weather).
