Festival #OOTD | Surfdome

Vero Moda | Y Not festival outfit picture

Earlier on in the week I blogged the first of my Y Not outfit shots, which as you might have noticed, was a lot cleaner than today's! Day 2 poured down with rain - it was, in fact, the morning after an electrical storm and mass festival evacuation - so planning for more adverse wet weather was my priority the second morning.

This jacket might not be the height of fashion, but when I forgot to brinbg a raincoat (that's what you get when you pack the night before) I was struggling until I found this on one of the vintage stalls for a mere tenner! It reminds me of garish bomber jackets all over Topshop, but much more wearable, and of course, a fraction of the price. I'm a country girl at heart, so in many ways, a mac and wellies is what I feel happiest in.

I'm also wearing a jersey midi dress from Vero Moda, at Surfdome, and straight away I had this weekend in mind to style it. It fits into my festival style perfectly as it's loose, warm, and a lovely marl grey colour that was dark enough to not notice if I got some mud on it. Click here to see their full range of dresses - they're perfect festival attire!

This week, I've been trying to catch up with all of my pals. On my way home every day I've had long phone chats with someone I've been missing for a few months because I've realised it's so easy to get wrapped up in life, jobs, and stresses. It really is the best thing in the world to surprise someone with a quick chinwag, and a giggle and a moan really works wonders on your mood!


  1. Obsessed with that jacket - looks like such an amazing festival" xo

  2. Cute but cool outfit Mrs. Really like the coat and the little braid in your hair <3


  3. What a bargain! At Glasto the cheap rainmacs were super expensive. Jersey dresses are perfect for every occasion - festival cute! <3
