What We Wear Wednesday: Festival Fringes

After a well-earned holiday in surfers paradise (read: San Sebastian and Mimizan) and while Lies covered my ass for this blog, it's my turn to do some of the hard work. Okay, let's face it, it's not really that hard work, but when you switch your surfboard for a desk , EVERYTHING seems like hard work.

Anyway, with a little bit of a delay, I present you the outfit I wore on Thursday on Rock Werchter a.k.a. the hottest day of all time (as you may have noticed, I have a thing for exaggerating). I decided to kind of combine the ubiquitous hippie look with some more rock items. I actually bought the top with the fringes to wear on the Groezrock festival, but the weather gods decided differently and spoiled my plans. And maybe I was indeed a bit too optimistic about the April weather and especially the April caprices ('Aprilse grillen'), but you never know in Belgium, right?

The outfit proved to be a great idea in the blistering heat of that Thursday the 28th of June: a cool, soft breeze right through my top would provide the oh so necessary cooling down. And you can never go wrong with shorts when you plan on jumping, screaming and moshing during your favorite band (that is in my case Blink 182 of course). I actually spent some time browsing the Interwebz for the perfect Stars and Stripes shorts, because I wanted them to look a bit worn-out and vintage with a high waist and not look too cheap with colours that are too bright. Luckily, I stumbled upon them when I was in Topshop in London. A bit overwhelmed by the enormous amounts of perfect clothing and the store in general, I managed to add this must have item to my wardrobe.

I'm also wearing my favourite shoes of all time, I simply love my Vans. So incredibly comfortable, versatile and again a necessary item if you plan on bouncing up and down in the audience. Also, no risk of leaving a shoe behind when somebody steps on your foot, a little something that might occur when one is wearing ballerinas. Or as Lies already pointed out in one of the previous posts, ballerinas aren't always a match made in heaven when walking around in them all day on some sandy festival grounds.

By the way, totally loving my Flamingo Pink hair, this time the colour really pulled through great!
