Pink Dr Martens

Beanie and Denim Jacket-Charity Shop, Hoodie-primark, Dress-Ebay, Dr Martens

These are the Dr Martens Drench Boot which are basically wicked cool wellies. They are the same material as a normal wellie and the tongue is attached to the boot which means no rain or mud will leak in and make my feet cold. What an amazing design, they are cute, cool and completely practical!!!
I basically bought them for Download Festival because I am not very keen on wellies to be honest, and these will be just as good if not better! I am so pleased with them and can wear them in my every day life not just at a festival. They can be worn with skirts, dress and jeans, I can't wait to post more casual outfits with them!

Grumpy cat Tee

Denim Jacket-Charity Shop, Hoodie-Primark, Tee-, Disco Pants-Topshop, Dr Martens

I saw this tshirt on the Instagram and bought it straight away. It is the perfect white tee which goes with everything and is just funny, everytime I catch a glimpse of it I literally laugh out loud. I decided to put it with my denim jacket and Dr Martens and this is probably the outfit I am going to wear for Slam Dunk Festival on Sunday, because its comfortable and will hopefully make some people laugh! 
Sorry for the slightly blurry photos, I will hopefully improve that next time.

But definitely check out, I just ordered some jewellery from them and I can't wait to receive it! All their pieces are extremely affordable and on trend.

Pastel and Peace

Beanie-Charity Shop, Jumper,Tee and Necklace-Topshop, Jeans-River Island, Dr Martens

This is just a casual outfit that I wore to run some errands. I am still loving pastels this summer, they are so delicate and cute. My Dr Martens are perfect for this trend because of the pastel colours in the floral pattern to edge up an outfit slightly. I can't stop wearing them and I recently just bought some more for Download Festival which I will do a post about.

Two Wrongs do Make a Right

Tshirt-Ebay, Necklace-Topshop-Skirt-Charity Shop, Boots-River Island

I love the contrast of the fluorescent florally skirt (which is actually a dress) and the bold colours of the Iron Maiden tee. The necklace ties them together and just makes them fit well I think. I love putting together two items of clothing which you think shouldn't work but just do. Again in an ideal world of all sun and no rain this would be a great outfit for Download Festival, but the impracticality of the outfit won't work. I am going to an all day festival called Slam Dunk which should be good, could swap the skirt for some leather look trousers or some patterned trousers to jazz it up.

Cross My Heart

Dress-Charity Shop/DIY, Necklace-Topshop, Dr Martens-Ebay

Recently I banned myself from shopping in a desperate attempt to save some moneys, but that didn't go to plan when I saw this cute dress in my local charity shop Oxfam. I decided to add a little somthin somethin to it by sewing on a black cross which was made out of some t-shirt sleeves. I really love what it brings to the dress and just shows something as little as that can change a piece of clothing.
I go to Download Festival 4 weeks from now, in an ideal world of sun and no rain I would love to wear an outfit like this, however it is completely impractical for a circle pit and beer being thrown left right and centre.
I have bought myself a see through plastic rain mac and a bum bag which I am going to iron on a patch, just not sure what yet. 

I will feature them in another post relating to festival wear.
