Parklife



Outfit Details
Dress- Missguided
Necklace- Missguided
Boots- Doc Marten

It turned out to be a wise idea to wear a long sleeve dress on the Saturday as it was very cold and windy towards the end of the day. Even in the tent the windy blew through and we ended up going home a bit earlier.

Although this is more of a beach outfit than a festival outfit it actually worked well for the Sunday as it was really sunny. Later on when it cooled down I changed my skirt for trousers.


I had the most amazing time ever at Parklife thanks to Missguided. I didn't take my SLR so all of the pictures above are phone pictures (some stole from my friend Dan). I've definitely got the festival bug so I'm now hoping to make it to at least another festival this summer. 

With the weather being so unpredictable it was quite hard to choose what to wear a week beforehand. I think I choose the right options. Although the day started out very sunny on Saturday it quite became very Windy. It started raining about 5pm which was great for James Bay who was playing in one of the tent at the time as everyone rushed in for cover. 

I definitely enjoyed the Sunday more as the weather was so much better and we were able to sit and chill on the grass in the sun for quite a lot of the day. 

I particularly enjoyed Hannah Wants DJ set. We went over to the tent hoping to catch some of her set and it was so packed people were queing to get in the tent. After waiting a while we managed to battle our way in although there were constant streams of people coming out of the crowd and pushing forward to get in so it was quite rough. She played a mixed of current tunes and classic 90's tracks.

Some of the acts we went to see were, Jessie Ware, James Bay, Rudimental, Hannah Wants and Jungle.

The Oversized T-shirt

Dress- Cheap Monday
Shoes- Boden
Jacket- Topshop
Hat- H&M

I Love the simplicity of this dress. It's also lightweight and oversized so perfect for summer. It's the first item of clothing I've bought in a long while and I'm finding it really useful.

I've started dying my hair blue for a change. One last hurrah before I give it a rest and go brown for a bit. Blue hair also means I can wear red again hurray.

I've been super busy in my job the past few weeks which I've enjoyed but has also been quite stressful. I'm coming to the end of it now though so though so hopefully blogging can return to normal.

Double denim

Shirt- Topshop (similar here)
Shorts- Missguided*
Shoes- Caterpillar

I don’t own a lot of denim but this shirt is one of my favourites. I bought at the beginning of last summer and still wear it loads. I’d really like a pair of bleached out blue denim jeans and a longer shirt to wear to work.

Me and my boyfriend went looking for new blog shoot locations at the weekend and a few cool new spots. I love a nice distressed wall!

Why is the weather at the moment summer all week and miserable all weekend?? At least in Manchester this seems to be the case. I want to wear summer clothes now! This week has been mega hectic but there are lots of exciting things on the horizon for me.

The big spot shirt

Big spot shirt- Motel Rocks (sold out similar here.)
Shoes- DKNY

So I'm back on the blogging wagon. After a couple of weeks off it's been really hard to get back on it. Especially after a few too many boozy weekends! The back holidays have been amazing. After a few intense weeks at work socializing has become a bit of a priority. 

I look very ghostly on these pictures. I think it's mostly the lighting but perhaps this summer I'll attempt to spend a bit more time in the sun this summer. I've even thought about getting a spray tan for my friends wedding in a few months, anything to stop me from looking like I'm about to drop dead.

I've really enjoyed wearing this dress. It's an easy one to throw on when I don't know what to wear in a morning. The loose oversized shape makes it more interesting. My buys at the moment have certainly been more focused on comfort for a change!

Sweater- Batoko*
Trousers- Front Row Shop*
Shoes- DKNY

The blog has had to take a bit of a back seat lately as I’ve been spending the past few weeks decorating and cleaning my flat ready to put it up for sale. I’ve actually managed to sell it already because someone posted a letter through the door looking to buy a flat in my block so it’s all happened really quickly. So I will soon be back to regular blogging. 

Yayyy for it now being summer and acceptable to wear white trousers. Bring on the garden parties, BBQs and beer gardens!

I'm absolutely in love with these DKNY shoes I waited a few months to buy them and by that time they had already sold out on Asos but luckily I managed to find them on another website. I've pretty much worn them everyday since! I think I'm falling in love with multicoloured trainers. I desperately want the Adidas super colours in pretty much every colour available. I think by the time I actually decide what colour I do want they'll probably be sold out.
