Hello, hello! £10 if you can guess what today's post is about.. you got it, festival dressing. As you know, I love a good bit of Toppers, it's one of the few stores I can go into and find a full head-to-toe outfit, and they just so happen to have an amazing festival collection in at le momento. For my festival outfit, I needed something stretchy because I like to jump around and - what is it the kids call it - get my groove on, so I went for this sassy little black mini dress (which comes in at a wonderful £18 - spill cider all over it? Doesn't matter. Fall in some mud? It's all good). I did pair it with a slightly more expensive piece, but I do think it'd look amazing with a kimono, cropped jumper or leather jacket thrown over. Anyway, the piece in question I went for is indeed the bomber of dreams. You might have seen it on Olivia Palermo - who was the one who initially got me interested in it - and then by the time I saw it was reversible I was already halfway to the till. REVERSIBLE, that's right. God I love multi-purpose. Plus if something's reversible it instantly halves the cost because it's like you're getting two items from it... right? Right.
I also picked up some little round sunnies which are an absolute doppleganger for the Ray Bans I wear all the time, but are a beautiful £16. Between my dopiness and my clumsiness, I try my best not to take expensive sunnies to a festival because, well, I don't trust myself. So these are the perfect alternative for me! Last but not least, I finished the look off with some gold tipped trainers which are pretty Kanye for me but I love 'um. Anything goes at a festival and all that.
So, I'll finish this up with a round-up of some of my favourite pieces from the festival collection - let me know which your favourites are too! I'm torn between the high necked floral dress (hello, Alexa) and these friggin beautiful sunglasses... and maybe the lace top too (sue me). As always, just click on the images below to be taken straight to the item!
