SUMMER SET


                                      Jumper  - H&M // Jeans - New Look // Boots - F&F 

 I'm not sure that I know how to dress myself these days. It's Summer - I want to be prancing around in floaty dresses and tasseled shorts, flowers in my hair, tan on my skin, sandals firmly on feet. Instead I'm wearing jumpers and jeans with boots. Crikey. Things better pick up soon or I'm going on strike. 
Luckily I can still enjoy my favourite past time of day trips to beautiful old manor houses in Somerset (as long as an umbrella and raincoat are packed). Happy Summer people!

GLASTONBURY




 Although it already feels like a distant dream, I can't stop myself from posting a few pictures from Glastonbury. It really was the craziest, maddest, wildest, debauched.... and most rad week I've had in a long time. It was well worth getting there on the Wednesday evening in order to actually find somewhere to set up camp, as pretty much everywhere was packed! Thursday was spent chillling above the tipi fields (so staying in one of them next year), wandering around the green future fields (hippies galore) and soaking up the sun. 


 Friday night was the ethereal Florence and the Machine on the Pyramid stage, replacing Foo Fighters, as everyone knows, Dave Grohl broke his leg. I was really looking forward to rocking out to the Foo's but Florence was amazing too. We followed this up by heading to Croissant Neuf for some skanking to a ska band that I've completely forgotten the name of!



On Saturday we got our faces did at one of the glitter stations. I swear from then on I've just wanted to wear face paint and glitter every fricking day. I can't get enough of the stuff. This was also the night we went to see Yeezus. Yeah, so the less said on that the better...


 Sunday was our last night, so of course we had to go out on a high... Lianne La Havas was an absolute highlight of the day, if not week, followed up by Chemical Brothers doing their thang over on the Other Stage. A quick walk over to Arcadia saw us take in the spectacular Metamorphis, in all it's techno-alien-spider finery. After gorging on pizza we headed to Shangri-La, The Common, Block 9, The Unfairground and Glasto-Latino to rave it up in their myriad of mini-clubs and gigs. One of my personal favourites was The Cave, a club that was accessed by waterfall in the meso-american style Glasto-Latino, but to be honest, it was all pretty god-damn awesome. Til next year Glasto!

CORNFLOWER


Shirt & Shoes - H&M // Bag - Urban Outfitters // Jeans - Primark

A classic blue pinstriped shirt is an item I've been wanting to add to my wardrobe for some time, as it strikes just the right balance between casual and smart. I can wear this shirt at work and feel all proper profesh - or wear it with ripped jeans as above for a relaxed Sunday look. Not bad for £20 from H&M.

It feels like I have so much to catch up on with the blog at the moment, including Glasto and all that jazz, so fingers crossed this month you'll see a few more posts than the pitiful 2 lonely blog posts from June. Have a wonderful weekend xx

LATELY...



 Quick photo update of things that have been happening in my life the last couple of months that I can't be bothered to do regular posts about! ;)  

I was in cake heaven for my birthday at the beginning of June // New buys include a cheeky pair of dungarees, lace-up sandals from Primark and an anklet & espadrilles from Spain // Enjoying summer in the country // More cake for my bday // Bluebell walks back in May (how long ago does that feel?!?) // Sitting on the quay in the sunshine with my housemate, Rekorderlig cider and Valerie Pattisserie fruit tartes // Pretty sea view on a hike along the coast

WHITE HOT




 Top & Hat - Primark // Jeans- New Look // Flats  -H&M

One of the big festival trends picked up on this year has been gypsy tops, and when I tried on and fell in love with a beautiful loose flowing cheesecloth blouse from Topshop, I knew I had to buy into the trend...I just wasn't prepared to part with £35 cold hard cash. So off to Primark I trooped and managed to find not one but two gypsy off-the-shoulder tops which I quickly snapped up of course (needless to say I took one back in the end). Anyway, this is the shorter sleeved one that I ended up keeping for a bargain £9. I'm not sure about the length of it, as it's a bit long, so I may have to get my fabric scissors out and lop a few inches off the bottom to take it to a more summer-friendly crop length that can be teemed with high waist bottom halves to create a bohemian vibe. Are you guys feeling the gypsy top?
