While everyone else is out finding Pokemon I’m trying to catch a few slightly different things. August is my birthday month (hint hint) so I’m hoping for some extra pennies to pick up these pieces I’ve been lusting after to keep me going for what’s left of ‘summer’! Reading fest is fast approaching too, so I’m hunting for those last minute buys to get me by.
Chic, boisterous and smart all rolled into one. It’s not hard to think of more than one occasion to wear a co-ord and it’s not hard to find a good selection of them online either. Whether you’re all for shorts, trousers or skirts there’s one out there for everyone. My personal fave right now is this Monki skirt and t-shirt combo (click to snap it up from ASOS), and not just because it’s stripy. I love the rusty colour scheme and fresh kinda look it gives off.
If these little babies weren’t so expensive I’d have invested a looooong time ago. Sturdy and available in all the best colours, what’s not to love? (I’ll take one of each, please).
The 2016 must have festival jewellery essential. A staple that instantly rocks up your outfit with ease, making it 100 x cooler and setting you up for a weekend of partying. I’m crushing on the cute selection available on ASOS and hoping I’ll grab one in time for next weekend!
The #1 most important thing to take to a festival in any circumstance whatsoever (glitter makes everything better). Stocking up is a must, unless you’re like me and have become slightly unorganised and left it till the last minute. If I had planned it better I’d have ordered a selection of proper face glitter. Unfortunately my only remaining option is the craft section of WHSmiths – form an orderly queue fellow festival goers!
Denim on denim is back, big time, so f*ck what people think and throw a denim jacket over a denim dress or style a denim top with jeans. I’ve got my eyes on this little bardot number from Missy Empire.
A fesival saviour since time began: the iconic Hunter boots. I’ve always wanted a pair but have only been able to settle for a less durable (and attractive) Primark alternative. But looking beyond the price tag, Hunters are worn by the coolest celebs (see Kate Moss and Alexa for major booty inspo) and look consistently classic even when danced in until 3am and caked in unavoidable British festival mud.
Without realising Slaves are on the Reading line up (in typical oblivious Lily style) I’ve bought tickets to see them in November too. So to honour potentially watching them twice this year their debut album is on my next to-buy list for my little but ever-growing record collection.
That’s it for this month (but I’m already dreaming about what I can buy in September)…
