V Festival Live Stream- Be there without being there

It’s August and it’s raining, that could only mean one thing....V Festival. Today I will be jumping in a car to Weston Park with my tent, neon pink wellies and a sh*t tonne of dry shampoo and I can’t wait. I must admit when my boyfriend first presented me with the tickets back in March I had a mild panic, I hadn’t been to a camping festival in years and the thought of it scared me a little but after a few firm words from friends I decided life’s to short!! Out of all the festivals I have been to V is one of my favourites. It always has such a chilled out atmosphere and I love the variety of music they have every year. Even though I saw him in April, you can guarantee I will be front row for Justin (guilty pleasure). For those of you who didn’t manage to get tickets...or aren’t keen on the idea of going to a festival, don’t worry Virgin Media have got it covered. On Sunday the 17th they will be providing a live stream of the day so you can get involved in the action all from the comfort of your sofa (and without the stinky portaloos!)

Paisley two piece

naanaa 2 naanaa 8 naanaa 7 naanaa naanaa 3 naanaa 6
Co-ord- c/o NAANAA
Kimono- c/o Glamorous
Hat- Topshop
Boots- Primark
 
I couldn't love this co-ord anymore if I tried, even if it does look slightly like I am wearing an old mans pj's. They definitely feel like pyjamas though...so comfy and I adore the contrast of the floral trim with the paisley print.
I am without a doubt going to be wearing this outfit at V Festival next week although the weather this weekend is suggesting wellies may be more appropriate.
 
I hope you all had a nice weekend?

Project Happy

heart 3
 
Everyday for a week I wrote down something (no matter how big or small) that made me happy.
 
Day 1. I watched a woman on the train offer her grapes to everyone around her. Sharing is caring...even with strangers
 
Day 2. A picnic in the park
 
Day 3. My boyfriend emailed me in work to tell me he was taking me out for dinner that night...I got those happy butterflies
 
Day 4. I met with an old friend and it was like we had never been apart
 
Day 5. A heart shaped cloud breezed past me whilst sat in the garden....it's the simple things
 
Day 6. I found a huge bunch of fresh flowers in the supermarket for £2
 
Day 7. It was cool enough to get cosy in my Pyjamas after work

Tropically Androgynous

Shirt & Hat- Topshop
Skirt, & Bag- Primark
Shoes- Matalan
 
Along side my new love affair for hats...I have another romance blossoming with cotton shirts. I am really enjoying the kind of androgynous chic look you can create by throwing a shirt over an outfit. This topshop one is so light it's perfect for summer, I wish they did them in more colours because I would buy them all! I am also still in love with this Primark skirt, you can probably tell as it's made a few appearances on here.
 
Before I go I feel as though the second picture needs an explanation. These shots were taken on our way home from having a meal out. As I was driving the boyfriend took the opportunity to have a few drinks and suddenly thought he was Britain's next best fashion photographer. Apparently I wasn't following his instructions so he told me next time he would bring his other model!!
Love that boy!
