My favourite time of year has come around again! Birthdays are great, Christmas is great but NOTTING HILL CARNIVAL IS EVERYTHING. My parents are both from West London and as a child took me and my siblings every year to join my family in the street celebration. As I’ve got older it’s turned three days and nights of partying, with all the club playing dancehall music. Pure bliss.
London being London, the weather is always unpredictable and it normally rains at least one of the two carnival days, so outfit planning is always a nightmare. I like to be comfortable but wear something that can take me from day to night for one of the after parties and regardless of whether it’s raining or not, it’s always warm. Here are some outfit ideas, with a week to go there’s plenty of time to get ordering.
Are you going to Notting Hill Carnival this year? Which day?
