A festival inspired by FIRE? Yes please.
Each year Edinburgh celebrates spring at the Beltane Festival, in traditional Celtic style with fire processions, twirling, drumming, and various pagan goodness.
Since my wardrobe currently contains insufficient witchy-ness I decided to dress as the fire itself.
Exeter College scarf | Kate Spade Dorothy coat | crystal necklace from The Fairy Shop | Walker Slater top | vintage sparkly jumper from Reign | ring from Hannah Zakari | Anthropologie skirt | American Apparel tights | Dr Marten Billie Boots
The Festival, besides being a great way to tick off “attend a new festival” on my birthday list, was also an excuse to finally visit Edinburgh’s famous Calton Hill. The views at sunset were spectacular.
The firey festivities began after the sun went to sleep, so I turn to the Beltane Fire Society for the visuals:
