Festival Style

Leave a Comment

Hey there lovelies,

Now I probably shouldn't be writing this post as I have only actually been to a handful of festivals in my life - & there will certainly be some pro-festival-stylers out there! 
However, just because I haven't been to many doesn't mean I haven't cried into my cornflakes like others when lusting over the outfits!

I guess it goes back to the days of Kate Moss and Sienna Miller when I first fell in love with the boho/festival styling - we all remember the infamous coin-belts right?
and the layering of waistcoats over everything possible?
Oh and how could I forget the love for All Saints military boots!!??

I don't personally think festival style has moved on much since if I'm honest, outcomes the fringing, the cowboy boots, ditsy prints and the daisy duke shorts every..single.. year. 
Each time the retailers describing it as 'new style' and revolutionary to the fashion industry - maybe this is an age thing and I've finally caught onto the fact that I MUST keep ALL clothes through my life (much to Stu's dismay!) as they always come back round again - apart from tulle skirts and trainers, please, never let me go down that rabbit hole again!

If you have seen my YouTube video you will have seen that I am lucky enough to say I am going to Chicago & Miami this summer, I'm craazzyy excited & whilst we are there will be going to Lollapalooza Festival
So of course, I've started planning my outfits waaayyy in advance! I wanted to share some of the pieces I've either bought or got my eye on for next payday... hope you like!

I love this Boohoo Aztec Jumpsuit & at only £20 I just couldn't resist buying it. I really struggle with plunge style tops as I'm short in the body but I'm hoping with a tweak & some (alot of!) tape it will work 
- I love the vibrant print & think it will look fab teamed with this necklace from Topshop..
Topshop Necklace - £18.50

So one of the huuuuge trends this year is gladiator sandals & I told myself not to get involved as I wore them as a teenager (That whole am I too old situation again!) but after seeing so many people look AMAZING in them I just couldn't resist & bought these beauties from Topshop - they were on my feet & featured on my before the postman made it off the drive!!

I'm planning on wearing them with a dress like this one - I've not bought one yet, but I've got my eye on a few - this one from Asos is quite plain but I love it! ASOS BA&SH Dress - mind you, it is £150 so I might have to start saving for it!

I am loving overalls/dungarees at the minute too & just had to buy these black ones, again from - £35 I'm planning on representing Cordelia & wearing my 'LIKE A MOSS' tshirt underneath in white with gold writing.

Cordelia Like a Moss Tshirt - £22
There's absolutely LOADS more that I have my eye on but I'm absolutely living a champagne lifestyle on a lemonade salary this week & I got paid 2 days ago!! Nightmare!

Hope this post inspires you ready for your upcoming festival/summer looks.


Oh, what a Shabbylicious afternoon!

Hey there you lovely lot!

Thanks for coming back.. It's not been toooo long since my last post, but as always I do feel the need to start with 'sorry I've not posted in a while!'

I wanted to write about something a little different for you, moving away slightly from a fashiony/buy me kinda' posts but more about a lovely afternoon I had recently celebrating one of my favourite people, Frankie Hunter's, Baby Shower..

Steph got arty with the wrapping of our present - using flowers from a wedding she was bridesmaid at the day before! Crafty-pants! :) 

I know I talk about Nottingham a lot on my Facebook page, but that's because I truly love where I live & in particular the local little shops & cafes that it has to offer! Which leads me to the beautiful Shabbylicious Vintage Tea Rooms in Stapleford, Nottingham, where Frankie's baby shower was held last week - it was simply adorable!

On a normal visiting day you can expect to find this kind of layout which is just perfect for an afternoon catch-up with friends and family - they are open around 10am-4pm most days and offer a brunch & light bite menus to choose from..

...However on Sunday 22nd March the Richmond family had other plans & turned it into a shrine for 'Baby Hunter' :)
..the atmosphere was so relaxed and they even had a record player playing old vinyl's in the corner which really set the vintage vibe perfectly.. but let me get to my favourite part of the day..
Check out the spreeeaaddd!! I honestly didn't know where to start! The very lovely Rebecca Ashworth and team at Shabbylicious really did smash our expectations with some of the scrumptious food that they made specially, from homemade lemon cake to rosewater macaroons! I was in my element! (look at all my exclamation marks  of enthusiasm in this paragraph!!) 

We drank prosecco out of teacups..

We played guess the bump size.. (which I miserably over-estimated!)

And Frankie got her bump painted by the fabulous India with her main baby-craving, Nutella!

One of the best things about Shabbylicious is, you could be drinking from a teacup and think 'ooh this is pretty' or sitting at a table & think 'this would look great in my kitchen!' and guess what - it literally can! Because nearly everything in the shop is available to purchase, if it doesn't have a 'not for sale' sticker on it, then it's yours for a small fee! How fab is that!?

Shabbylicious are in the process of getting their online shop up and running but if you pop over to their website you will be able to read lots more about them - but believe me, you really need to pop in to get the true feeling of this little gem! This bird feeder has to be one of my cutest finds, what a perfect present starting from £20!

I stopped the guys mid prosecco-pouring to take this quick pic of the lovely team because they looked as fabulous as their shop & I l just love that they were dressed in vintage too..
I know from talking to the girls, and of course Frankie, that everyone had the most perfect day which was also fantastic value for money - (Shabbylicious Pricing)  I'm already thinking about who can have their celebration their next!

Thanks again to Rebecca and the team, I couldn't recommend your Tea Room enough which I know will be a huge success just like your family businesses before you :)

and Frankie (and James of course!)... We can't wait to meet Baby Hunter! <3
