British Summer seems to be cateogorised by two things: crap weather and festivals. Thankfully this blog post is mainly about the latter... with a brief mention of the former.
The past two weekends I have been enjoying music in large doses at T4 on the Beach and Lovebox. I went along to T4 on the Beach and loved the sunshine and all the fashionable celebs mingling backstage including the lovely Made in Chelsea cast (I'm an unashamed MIC fan, sorry) and then to Lovebox this weekend with some friends where the sunshine was not so prevalent and we got rather muddy to say the least! Below is what I wore to both festivals:
T4 on the Beach - Top and shorts from Topshop, bag from Zara, sandals from New Look
Lovebox (day one) - Top from Vila at ASOS, shorts as above, sandals from Blowfish, bag from Matalan and earrings from River Island
Lovebox (day two) - Parka jacket from River Island, dress from Topshop, boots from Linzi Shoes, knee socks from Primark, necklace is vintage
Lovebox (day three) - Dress from Sugarhill Boutique, earrings from Topshop, jacket and bag as before
By day three of Lovebox I just wanted to keep my feet from getting muddy and keep dry, which incidentally my jacket did not do :( If you're off to a festival in the next few weeks I would advise wearing something waterproof, try this Topshop 'pac a parka' on for size for £30 and go for boots over wellies if you're expecting a large amount of slippery mud as they have better grip.
