Extra Crispy

Hello! Just spent the weekend visiting my dad...it was lovely. Visited and ate too much and relaxed.

Question for you all...
J and I have decided to head to a music festival this weekend. Should be fun. It's one we've gone to for many many years and I am really looking forward to it. Money will be tight, but to go off and have fun and just enjoy ourselves and maybe even dance like a monkey under the stars will do me  a world of good I think. This is a huge part of what our summer is, and I really hope it all comes together...I'm still pretty burnt, but it's starting to heal (and itch and peel...gah). I now have brown patches amongst the burnt bits. It'll come...
I'm trying to think of nice summery things I can wear without being offensive. The thing is, usually when I camp I literally live in jeans/cutoffs and bikini tops but being rather crispy on one side at the moment I need to protect my skin from the sun (sunscreen would burn like hell right now) and not melt of it's too warm. Additionally, I'm still too burnt to wear a bra (tho I might be able to wear a soft sports bra in a few days) and want to cover up my burns (they look pretty nasty) on my right chest and armpit. Any suggestions appreciated. This also means it hurts too much to wear my foob at the moment, so it's all a bit awkward...I'm fine with going monoboob, but I never realized how much of my summer stuff is low cut or fitted, so I've not got a lot of choices here...
Any ideas for things or cover ups I can wear - especially for swimming? I'd love to go swimming in the mountain stream on site...and I only have 2 piece bathing suits. I will have to hunt for the one that looks the least strange with only 1 tata...or just wear a shirt I suppose...
On the plus side tho - my hair is juuuuuuusssssst long enough that I had it trimmed on wednesday so that it's all the same length now and it's looking very nice...very short, but nice...no weird tweedles anymore. Still abnormally short, but it's filled in well. Now I can go without a hat and it looks like I buzzed my head and am starting to grow it back, so at least I don't have to cover my head all the time if I don't want to. And I don't want to...altho I will have to sunscreen my head!

The only advice I can offer, comfort-wise, is a house dress, or Muumuu. Not high fashion, but I wore them in the summer during my pregnancies and they were very cool and comfy.

Have a WONDERFUL time!!!!!!

When I was a kid, I always wore t-shirts over my bathing suits (in the water as well) to avoid sunburns. They didn't have all the fancy waterproof-high-SPF sunscreens back then. I say, wear what you are comfortable in.

I sure you will look awesome in whatever you wear this summer. It's all about attitude my friend. Awesome, badass attitude.

Loose shirts. Loose is cool, loose doesn't chafe, loose will keep the sun off and let the air in. Maybe you need to borrow some from somebody a size larger?
