Festival season is here…

I love experiencing new things…so you can imagine my excitement at going to my first festival. With this comes the responsibility of knowing what to wear. A festival is an all day thing so being comfortable has to be a priority. Being in the UK the weather is unpredictable therefore an outfit that can survive all climates will also need to be taken into consideration. Although being comfortable should be priority, one should also make an effort to look good. Just because you’re at a festival doesn’t mean you have to pretend you got ready in a tent. Festival style is about having some fun!

This is what I decided to go for:

  1. A hat is perfect if you don’t have an umbrella and there’s a bit of drizzle. I went for a beloved bowler hat from Topshop which I purchased last years.
  2. Layers: make sure you have a few light layers to survive the expected wind, rain and sunny spells. A shirt you can easily take off and wrap round your waist is a great choice to keep warm in or cool down when taken off, the taking off part is for when the sun comes out.
  3. Backpack: who wants to lug a heavy one shoulder bag around with them all day. A rucksack is an easy, convenient way of transporting all essential items that would be needed on the day.
  4. Flats: no need for heels as you will be on your feet all day! Plimsolls, trainers or wellies are the perfect choice.

Travel chic

Holiday season is upon us!

How to stay stylish & comfortable for a flight…

When flying take two things into consideration when choosing an outfit; where you are and where you are going!

  1. I usually travel early in the morning so a pair of dark glasses is a must for me. Not only do they look stylish but they cover up my tiredness.
  2. Wear comfortable trousers, it’s ok to wear tracksuit style trousers but just make sure they look as fitting and stylish as jeans. I don’t usually travel in jeans due to them not really being comfortable to sit in for long periods of time and they can leave you feeling quite hot.
  3. The right jacket is very important as it finishes of an outfit. I usually go for a blazer as it dresses up a laid back outfit.
  4. Comfortable easy to slip on and off shoes is a must. I usually go for a freshly white pair of plimsolls.
  5. Keep accessories to a minimum especially fake jewellery as the beepers will be going off when passing through security, meaning a longer process to get through security and less time in duty free.

Bloggers Love…The Custom Underground

Lovely evening last night for the Bloggers Love event which took place at Penthouse, Leicester Square. I saw some fabulous designers but there was one which stood out for me. The Custom Underground – OMG, their custom made plimsolls and baseball hats (literally hand crafted no print material used) are amazing. I was seriously amazed at the level of  detail which had gone into each individual piece. #Perfection! Go check them out for yourself http://www.thecustomunderground.co.uk
