-FESTIVAL FASHION-

Its that time again! Summer has arrived and with the warm breezes and sunshine filled days comes one of our most favorite times of year; Festival Season! 

*****

There are many, many things to love about Summer in general; the rising temperatures, nature thriving, and of course the wonderful optimism and happiness that accompanies the extra dosage of Vitamin D. 

Now add the sounds of your favorite musical artists and the company of old and new friends alike, and we are absolutely in love!

Music festivals are an incredible reason to travel and experience the world along the way. So many of them happen in the most amazing and unique places. That is why we are so excited to be headed to Secret Solstice Festival, held in Reykjavik, Iceland for the 3rd year in a row! 

What’s unique about this particular festival, aside from the incredible lineup (which only gets more amazing with each passing year!), is that solstice weekend means 72 hours of nonstop sunshine! Nothing keeps those good times going more than the sun refusing to set!

Come have a look at what essentials we’ll be packing for our weekend underneath the midnight sun

Alright, first things first, festival survival 101; a good pair of shoes! 

Festival shoes must be comfy, easy to clean, and ready for whatever the weather may have to offer. 

This is especially important in Iceland where the weather is constantly changing. 

More importantly, though, you want a sturdy pair of comfortable shoes so pinched toes don’t distract you from any of the musical magic! 

These Ryder Boots by Unif are perfectly versatile and a great grunge statement to bring into your wardrobe after the festival has finished.

And since festivals are a place to let loose and express yourselves, you may want something thats less of a staple wardrobe item and more fun!

Just like these adorable Rhino rain boots, such fun for a festival environment and perfect to guard against all of that inevitable mud.

Though Secret Solstice happens under Iceland’s midnight sun, it is still Iceland, and as such can definitely still be a bit chilly! 

Luckily, we have the perfect solution to keeping cozy while still standing out from the crowd in our favorite festival looks. 

And the answer is, bomber jackets! Lightweight enough to carry easily with you, but warm enough to keep warm if it does get a bit windy or cold.

Here at Lasta we cannot get enough of bomber jackets, and they’re absolutely perfect way to bring together practicality and style.

Another important part of your festival looks; accessories! These are the perfect place to bring that crazy, expressive, colourful festival vibe. Rainbows and flowers and sparkles, oh my! 

Depending on your style, you may live by the words ‘less is more’ but trust us, at a festival this is not the way to go! 

The combination of the music and atmosphere and sunshine is the perfect place for you to go big and bold, really stand out!

And no festival would be complete without a flower crown, right? Well we have something even better, one that will last beyond just the weekend for you to wear all year round.

These beautiful velvet pieces by Deathflower are their own unique flower crowns and necklaces, not to mention the shine and depth of the material adds another interesting dimension to your look. Best part? They last much longer than daisies!
