Finally, its festival season! And unlike pervious summers in Scotland… for as long as I can remember, festival season is shaping up to be a paradise of sun this year. So to celebrate in the best way possible, Trespass sent me along to TRNSMT fest for the day to try out some new pieces from their festival collection and gather some snaps and BTS shots of all the festival fun.
Unlike most festivals TRNSMT is a day fest with no camping – ideal for me because I live a 10 minute walk from Glasgow Green. This was the first time I’ve ever traveled light to a festival and it was actually harder than I expected – thankfully Trespass kitted me out with the essentials which I will share along with a few bum bag (since we’re at a festival) must haves.
Sunday was a scorcher, by 3pm areas in the festival grounds were up at 30°C – I was unbelievable grateful to be wearing quick dry material which takes all moisture away from the skin so you’re not left swimming in a puddle of your own festival sweat. Sorry that’s gross – but totally resembled most people around me!
This T comes in a few different colours, and orange is actually my fav colour (thanks Trespass for being telepathic)! Nada Women’s Quick Drying T-Shirt
Lifesaver! This hat was the second best thing I brought to the festival (the best is yet to come) – really lightweight, really cute and kept the glare off my face all day long.
After two weeks in Italy my eyes have never been so exhausted from the sun, you know the burn you get when you close your eyes at night after being out all day? Well these guys definitely helped prevent that on Sunday – and they are currently 50% off!
So here it is – the BEST thing I brought to TRNSMT (not the sunflower).
And although I only had this jacket on for aprox 10 seconds to take a photo before I melted, it was the handiest thing to have with me. Everyone spent the majority of the day chilling on the grass to avoid heat exhaustion, and since I was wearing cream shorts…
Sadly – I had to give up my gorgeous wellies for my handbag flip-flops ^^^ which I desperately wanted to keep on all day, but my feet were overheating just a bit too much.
A few more festival tips...
Remember to eat. Even when it’s hot and appetites are low, we still need energy from proper food… or just find a doughnut as they’re harder to refuse!
Water is your pal – nobody wants a dehydrated heat exhausted friend to look after when everyone else is having fun. But bring a water bottle and use the free refill station… because I didn’t and had to pay £3 for 500ml every time I was thirsty, AH!
- Hand sanitiser and tissues/wipes
- Sun cream
- Portable battery pack (phone charing is £8 for one hour)
- Water bottle (free refill stations)
- Hair bobbles (three different girls asked me for one during the day)
- Cash (take it out before you get into the venue – machines charge)
- Ticket & ID
Thanks for reading, and for anyone heading to TRNSMT round 2 this weekend or any other festivals this summer – have a fab time!
And of course, a huge thank you to Trespass for kitting me out and sending out for a great day.
