Staying at Home this Summer the new Staycation.

Host a Vintage Festival Staycation With Fabulous Fashion 

Vintage clothing and swimwear isn’t just for the pool or the beach — it is a way of life. The warm British summer months are the ideal time to have a staycation in your garden where you can enjoy wearing your favourite vintage outfits. At the moment where everyone is spending more time at home, many of the summer festivals may be cancelled, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t organise your own event. First on the list is of course some fabulous swimwear to show off. You can then put on some amazing music, have some delicious festival food and enjoy a weekend relaxing in the sunshine.

Dress to impress

Wearing vintage styles is all about embracing your personality and enjoying clothes. Why should you conform to what everybody else is wearing and the clothes they are selling in magazines? Instead you create your own unique look that is fun and flattering. A 1950s style playsuit is perfect for the garden or a cute gingham yellow sundress. For your staycation there are also a few essentials you will need in the sunny weather. Make sure you invest in a stylish festival hat, especially if you have pale skin. Lightweight snood-style neckwear is also a good idea to keep the chill off in the evenings. Go for fun festival fabrics and bold prints that compliment your vintage style. You can protect yourself from the sun and look fabulous at the same time.

Listen to some festival music

The main British music festivals may have been called off this year, but many of the bands and artists are entertaining us with live streaming concerts in the homes and gardens instead. This summer you can check out your favourite acts without having to leave the house. Glasthomebury Festival is running during the last weekend in June, watch on catch up. It  will be raising money for Mind, NSPCC, Refuge, The Trussel Trust and Covid-19 Urgent Appeal.

On your staycation, put a tent up and enjoy the music without needing to wade around in the traditional Glastonbury mud. If classical music and jazz is more your thing, then the Royal Albert Home has plenty of live concerts that will be streamed in the weeks and months to come.

Cook some festival food 

No staycation festival would be complete without some traditional festival food. Fortunately food trucks have come a long way in the last few years and you can get some amazing and tasty treats. If you are catering for family, then how about cooking a delicious paella with delicious fresh veggies? It’s a great dish to share and can easily be served in bowls in the garden. You could also include some vintage tea party food on your staycation menu. The Banned Pineapple Print pale pink dress is perfect to wear when serving food to your guests. It is sophisticated and comfortable and looks great with a piña colada in one hand.

A festival staycation is a great way to celebrate without leaving your home. You can enjoy some great food and music, dressed up in your fabulous vintage clothing.
