This is my final Festival Edit post *sniffs* - I've had so much fun styling up and putting together my festival posts for you all, I really hope you've enjoyed them as much as I have. For my final outfit I thought I'd mix it up a bit and throw in some trainers (always a sensible idea at a festival so your tootsies don't get trampled on!!) - I styled these amazing Puma via Banktrainers with some white frilly socks from Primark. I chose this button front floral print midi dress from Boohooto pair with my trainers - this dress is perfect for festivals - especially if it's hot as it's a loose fit. It's great to style up too as you can layer it with jewellery or even pop on a belt around the waist.
I picked up this sleeveless knitted cardigan from Primark the other day for just £15 and really loved how it looked with this dress. This piece is so versatile and you can throw it over a bikini or dig it out in the winter to wear over a jumper and jeans - voila! My fedora hat (100% wool and just a mere £8 FYI!), bag, rings and socks are all from Primark too - I had a bit of a haul the other day and thought they'd come in handy for styling up my last outfit. Lastly I finished off my outfit with this amazing silver boho necklace from Wallis which I've featured in lots of my Festival Edit posts but it just seems to go so well with all of my outfits, perfect summer staple piece!
Have you enjoyed my Festival Edit? Do you like my final outfit?
Today I'm bringing you outfit 8 in my Festival Edit, there's only one outfit to go (boo) that I will post tomorrow. I've had so much fun putting together my festival edit - now I can't wait to rock some of these looks at festivals this summer! My favourite piece from this outfit has to be this amazing kimono from Prettylittlething- I really love the length of this kimono and the tassels on the end are such a lovely touch! I layered the kimono over this simple black body from Missguidedwhich is so comfy, it's a great staple piece for your wardrobe as it's so versatile and can be worn with anything!
I chose this denim skater skirt from Indigo at M&S to wear with the body as it's quite high waisted and sits well with the top (I popped a tan skinny belt over the skirt as I thought it went really well with the kimono!). To keep with the tan belt I opted for these chunky cleated sole sandals from Primark which are super comfy - I could happily wear these to a festival all day! They do up with buckles at the side so your feet are secure (great for dancing at festivals!). Lastly, I chose my trusty Miss Selfridgetassel bag to complete my outfit - this bag is quickly becoming a favourite of mine, it just goes so well with everything and is a really great size!

Guys. guys. GUYS! Please can we just take a minute to appreciate how amazing the French Connection sale is?! I was just browsing through the sale and I just can't quite get my head around the incredible pieces - French Connection is one of those brands that in my eyes they just don't ever get it wrong! They opt for classic timeless pieces in key colours and shapes so that they'll never date therefore making your purchases more than worth the extra money you pay for the items.
I wholeheartedly agree in investing in staple pieces as every wardrobe needs them, it's always great to have a capsule collection of 10/15 pieces that will go with anything - try to keep shapes and colours simple as they are a great canvas to dress up! I am going to have a massive clear out of my wardrobe this weekend as I'm having one of those moments wear I just wish I could sell everything and start again... so, that's pretty much what I'm going to do - wish me luck! In the meantime, go have a ponder at the awesome sale, I'll apologise to your bank accounts now as the damage won't be pretty!
Which outfit is your favourite? I genuinely can't decide as I want them all!!

This has to be one of my favourite festival outfits so far - I wasn't sure how I felt about rocking a long kimono at first but as soon as I put it on I loved it! This one is from Boohooand is such a steal at only £20, a perfect piece for festival season! I'm off to a festival this Saturday and I'm planning to wear this jumpsuit from Miss Selfridge as it's just so comfy and it's great to style up - it's all about comfort when you're at a festival so you can maximise the dance moves!
I paired this jumpsuit with my trusty chunky OFFICE boots as I thought they looked great together, these boots are canvas so they are great for festivals as you can wipe them down or wash them if they get super dirty. I loved the white flowers on the kimono and decided to throw some more white into the mix by adding this boxy New Lookbackpack and bohemian style Wallisnecklace to accessorise my outfit. To complete my outfit I added my much loved Missguidedfedora hat - a hat's always a great touch to any festival outfit and this ones a bargain at £12.99! How did I do styling outfit #7?
I'm back with another 'what's in my bag' post and this time I'm talking day festivals as opposed to camping (if you missed that post then check it out here). What I would pack for a weekend festival is so different from a day one as when you're camping I feel like you need to be prepared for any situation, and you also have a mahoosive rucksack so you can take 3 lipsticks if you want to!
For a day festival I couldn't image attending without this little lot (AKA the survival kit!) - so, some essentials include a mini deodrant, hand wipes, hairbands, kirby grips, and some hand sanitizer (I've opted for the Carex Strawberry Laces Hand Sanitizer as it smells amazing!) - all items like these can be picked up at your local Superdrug or Boots and always keep an eye out for any deals going on. I've also popped in a sample perfume spray - you can pick these up at any beauty counter and they are so convenient to keep in your bag rather than having to lug around a full size perfume!
First and foremost I'm going to start with sun screen as it's so important, I'd suggest slathering yourself in it before you head off to a festival as after a few ciders you're likely to forget about that kind of thing and it's best to be protected. Even if it's not a super hot day you can still get burnt - better to be safe than sorry! A favourite of mine is the Radical Skincare Skin Perfecting Screen SPF 30it's a factor 30 which is plenty (make sure you apply some to your face as well even if your foundation or base has an SPF). This sun screen is super lightweight and has a matte finish even if your skin is oily this is a great product for you, it's a little on the pricey side but it's one of those things we need to have and I'd recommend this one as for me it's worth the price tag.
