Festival Fashion and Fun

As many of you may have been aware, this weekend, my fellow groupies and myself descended upon the V music festival which is a mere hop, skip and a jump away from my abode, for a weekend of music-watching, cider-drinking, dad-dancing, fun, mud and noodles!
To say I had fun would be an understatement, it was a fabulous weekend spent with chums.
I took a few snaps, naturally, because I thought it would be nice to compile my festival fashion over the two days and I have also thrown in some other random pics for your amusement.


Short cowboy boots - River Island
Lace ankle socks (just seen) - Miss Selfridge
Denim shorts - H&M
Skinny belt - H&M
Lace top - H&M
Bangles - Accessorize
Earrings - Miss Selfridge
Necklace - River Island
Flower headband - Miss Selfridge

Hair - just messily pinned up as per...

Sunnies - Jackie O inspired Ray Bans.
Tipple of the day - Bacardi Breezers - classy!

Geekily excited about the day's festivities!!


Boots, shorts, jewellery as before
Denim shirt - Topshop
Vest top - H&M
Headscarf - Accessorize
MAC St Germain lippie...

Claire and I ready to rock! :)

Oh hello MAC tent!! :)

So there we have it lovers, my V weekend in a nutshell. 
It was truly spectacular with some fierce acts performing - my particular favs were:-
Florence, Calvin Harris, Jamie T, Kings of Leon and Prodigy!!

Let me know what you think chicks, and have any of you attended any festivals this year?

I went to Stafford for V fest on the weekend! It was my first ever festival and I loved it - esp being vegetarian because the food is lush! Jason Derulo was good, although they needed to turn the volume up on his voice and turn the bass down a bit - he got a girl up on stage and sang to her *sighs* lol x

Kel said...

You are lucky you are able to pop home from the fest! :)
Great outfits both days, love Sunday's though.

And Claire looks fab also.
