Festival Frolics

Hi guys

I like many others are praying that this awful weather has vanished and the sunshine is cracking the flag by the time the festival I'm going to is here.

I'm lucky enough to be going to V-Fest this year as me and the boy bought our tickets straight after last years festival on the early bird special. Ill obviously be taking loads of pictures and doing a blog post on my antics but in these last few weeks I've been hunting the sales to find festival bargains and putting together my looks.

Now its safe to say I'm not even contemplating the weather being anything but sunny so I've gone short shorts all the way.

Lets start with the footwear shall we, these boots were an absolute steal!! from the River Island sale. If your a little bit sad like me you would of been queuing up outside your local River Island on Tuesday at the crack of dawn to make sure you got your wrist band to get an extra 50% off sale items. I did this last year with my friend and got loads of bargains so when I found out they where doing it again I jumped at the chance and was queuing up at 7.30am to get exactly what I was after. On a small not to River Island though I was very disappointed that it was only four items this year instead of 10 like last time but you shouldn't look a gift horse in the mouth as they say.

Lets start with my only shoe purchase recently with the boots. The boots started life at £75 as they are real leather and were reduced to £30 in the sale so I got them at £15 and couldn't believe my luck. However when I got to the check out I noticed they had a broken zip on one side and they where the last ones. So before I broke into tears over the loss of the boots the very nice sales assistant gave me over 50% off  and I got them for £7.50.

As for the broken zip I managed to get it working when I got home so even though it was missing its nice little tazzle on one side they can still be worn. I did take them to the little cobbler man in town and for the very reasonable price of £3.95 has done a little job on the zip so it looks all most as good as new and I'm going to keep my eye out for something I can replace the tazzle with.

Next is an out fit that I'm hoping to wear either with the tan boots or the good classic black hunters if the weather is not in our favour. The top if from International which yes is still actually going where I live believe it not and cost £7 in the sale and I also got another sale item for free. The shorts are a lovely pale green not something I would normally wear but a nice change from regular blue denim and cost £10 in the sale reduced from £20 another River Island purchase.

This lovely pink blouse as many may recognise is from Zara and I got it in the sale for £29.99 which wasn't much cheaper then full price at £39.99 but I really like this and decided it was worth it. This is the first blouse I've bought that have the lovely collar studs which I have wanted for a while and I am tempted to try and replicate this myself on some of the blouses I already own. 
The very short shorts that I'm not 100% sure ill be wearing without a lot of gym sessions are another super saver River Island steal for £10 deduced from £40 so I couldn't say no. The gold studs were what caught my eye originally and I thought they would match the detail on the blouse perfectly.

I'm sorry to keep banging on about the leather jacket I bought from Zara a while ago (check it out here) but it seems to have started a love for leather that I never new I had. Last year I bought some rather expensive grey shorts from All Saints that I have to admit were a good investment but because I'm vain I don't really want to wear them for V again this year so I bought a good pair of black shorts instead. The shorts are slightly high waisted perfect for tucking in T-shirts and cost £7.50 reduced from £30.
The grey t-shirt was from International and was my free item in the sale, I'm not sure if ill go for this T-shirt or my grey spiked one from Zara (check it out here) with the shorts but I do like this kind of rock chick look.

Come rain or shine I will be going to V-festival but in the rare case it does rain in England I have purchased some classic skinny black jeans that I can wear with my black Hunters. I cant believe that I didn't own any black jeans and slightly glad that Jack Wills didn't have my size in when I went to purchase some from them for £50 last week as these only cost me £10 for my last River Island Super Saver item.

Thanks
