Festival dressing: the mere thought of it brings me out in a cold, cold sweat. Get it right and you're the belle of the festival arena stomping until the early hours of the morning, get it wrong and you're doomed to chafing, blistering and sunburn and an early night under the stars. Some of you may be heading to Reading and Leeds Festivals this weekend, so I wonder if you can relate. I've attended many festivals and, each time, have faced the same, 'But, WHAT, what do I wear?' dilemma. This year, attending Kendal Calling was no different.
Over the past few months, my charity shop finds have
dwindled in number and you've seen very few purchases here on the blog. I can't
complain because in July, the charity shop Gods bestowed some amazing thrift
luck upon me when I found some key, quality pieces for my autumn wardrobe: a 60's style Boden skirt, a Topshop trench coat and a
Wheels & Dollbaby cardigan, to name but a few. I'm excited for autumn
fashion, but I'm still embracing summer. Strangely, it was when I was searching
for autumn fashion staples that I chanced upon this shirt dress.
You know how I pledged to make 2016 a year of action, a year where I'd make some positive changes in my life? Do more, work less, see more, worry less? Well, last weekend, I was able to add a little more action to my 2016 list of adventures when I was invited to Kendal Calling 2016. And, if you want even more action, I'm adding a mini vlog to the end of this post (yes, my first ever!)
Summer weather in England: sporadic, humid and sometimes hot, but always welcome. Although it doesn't happen often, news that a heatwave is making its way to our shores brings summertime plans, because inevitably it won't last long. With a spell of unusually warm weather forecast, and a Carousel dress just begging to be worn, John and I planned a mid-week evening at the seaside. As you know, I'm already a fan of Carousel clothing so where better to visit wearing a nautical dress than picturesque Lytham?
