Two details that are EVERYWHERE this SS15 are snake print and lace up; and I for one could not be happier about it due to their serious seventies connotations. Both of these small details make bold impacts, I mean just LOOK at that bag by Pauls Boutique, the ultimate statement but that honestly works with so many different looks. It's been attached to my hip ever since it arrived and quite frankly, I'm in love!
The lace up's finish off the look for a seriously caje yet rather timeless look dontcha think?

Howdy partners, how the heck are you? I'm back from the BEST weekend in Brighton at The Great Escape Festival, and now I'm feeling like summer has officially started, even if I am writing this from my desk, peering out of the window to rain... But you get my drift.

I popped to Brighton to catch a heck load of bands that were performing as a part of The Great Escape Festival and oh what a weekend we had. I thought I'd do a couple of photo diaries from my weekend away and this is numero uno... ENJOY!

Lets start with my oufit ey; Kitted out in Missguided, last week I gave you guys a sneak peek (here) and mentioned how I was going for some Chung vibes in dungarees, stripes and chucks and oh what a good idea this was. Thursday was CHUCKING it down so a simple outfit like this was definitely needed. Accessorising with a fedora and faux leather jacket to shelter myself from the rain, it was the perfect first day look to explore Brighton in.

Our first stop was the super cute The White House Hotel, our home for the weekend; we dumped our bags and, due to the rain headed straight for the pub where we mapped out all of the bands we planned to see, Thursday, in all honesty wasn't great with regards to acts for us so we decided to save our gig energy for the Friday and Saturday and spent the day eating, drinking and exploring beautiful and charming (albeit rainy) Brighton.

However, that being said, I've thrown in some shots from across the entire weekend when the sun came out and we caught some unreal acts. Above are some shots from the likes of Pins, an uhhhmazing punk girl band from Manchester who are utterly incredible live, they had me pining for guitar lessons and a badass bleached doo ASAP, The Vaccines who did a secret set on Friday night... UNREAL! It was such an intimate set with the best and most fun atmosphere of all the sets we saw, just amazing.
We also checked out The Cribs on Saturday night, a band I have loved for as long as I can remember so they were an absolute delight, and finally F.U.R.S and The Garden, I have one word for The Garden and that is MENTAL!
If you're interested in discovering some new music I've left a YouTube link to each of the acts, above for you to check out :)

So there we have it, my first Great Escape Summary. Writing this has sent me into another level of Weekend Blues so I do hope you've enjoyed hearing all about my weekend away and make sure you stay tuned for my second post coming later this week.

TrollBeads














Dress- ASOS, Sunglasses- Ray Ban c/o Red Hot Sunglasses, Bangle- c/o TrollBeads, Boots- Faith via ASOS (out of stock, similar here)

As I've mentioned before, I'm a sucker for delicate jewellery, I'm often pining for new pieces to grace my fingers, neck and wrists, that are simple yet statement in the most minimal of ways.
The latest jewellery brand on my radar is TrollBeads, a brand I didn't know too much about... Until now.
They specialise in jewellery that you can customise yourself (or simply choose a ready to wear piece), adding in beads to create the perfect, personalised piece just for you.

Whilst choosing your beads is hard enough, the bangles are even harder; silver, gold and more recently copper, which is the metal I decided to go with. Rose gold and copper are having a serious moment right now and I just had to choose it to go hand in hand with my day to day jewellery. And how gorgeous is it when teamed with the jade bead that I opted for, it's the perfect combination, especially when paired with my green, knitted tube dress.

Knitwear is beyond HUGE for SS15, something that is a little hard to understand... Warm weather x knitwear... SAY WHAT!? But fine knits like this make for the perfect transitional UK spring ensembles.

THE GREAT ESCAPE FESTIVAL: What I'm Wearing


Dungarees & Top- Missguided

Blouse, Crop, Jeans- Missguided



This weekend I'm heading back to Brighton (one of my fave places) for The Great Escape Festival, and bladdy hell, I am beyond buzzing for it!
The Great Escape is a fairly new festival that boasts over 400 up and coming bands and artists across 35 Brighton venues and it's set to be a belter!

The line up is seriously HUGE and I'm absolutely buzzing to see the likes of Blossoms, Django Django, F.U.R.S, Spector, All Us On Drugs, The Cribs, Vaults AND Slaves, who I recently saw live in Manchester and boy were they UNREAL! But I am lucky enough to have my very own music man coming along with me who has a number of bands up his sleeve that I apparently have to see... Can I get a HELL YEAH to finding new music!

I'm going to be a wee little festival reporter for Missguided while I'm there so am obviously planning to rock some serious Missguided looks. I thought I'd share a lil sneak peek of two of my looks that I plan on donning, I'm going for some serious Chung vibes (obvz) with stripes, dungarees and chucks and then a bit of a seventies Woodstock vibe with paisley and crochet. My third and final look of the weekend is still under construction so make sure you're following me on Instagram & Twitter to find out what I go for.

In the name of all things music and The Great Escape Festival I thought I'd put together my 10 track playlist of tunes I'm excited to hear live, so you lot can get involved too. I don't know about you but I just LOVE discovering new music so thats exactly why I'm so excited to attend The Great Escape... Enjoy!
