This weekend just gone, I attended Slam Dunk for the second year running. I'm a huge fan of the music festival that takes place over three days in Leeds, Hatfield and Wolverhampton. Over the years, some top bands have headlined what is actually known to me a fairly low-key festival (in comparison with others such as Download etc). This year some of the headlining bands included You Me At Six, Don Broco and Taking Back Sunday! Not bad for a festival that's held at a university just down the road...
Anyway, I actually went for a more festival vibe then an edgy look which is unlike me! Usually I'd be in skinny fit jeans, converse and some random rocker top but this year I left it really last minute to decide because I didn't know what the weather would be like and had a super busy weekend. So I just went with some of my most recent H&M purchases, go figure!
The loose fitting play suit was actually perfect considering I spent most of the day in and out of portaloos! I mean the removing the belt every time wasn't ideal, but it was still a perfect outfit for how the day was spent - inside and outside, jumping about, chilling etc. I'd have been way too hot and uncomfortable in skinny jeans. Despite the fact that it wasn't sunny, it was actually really warm too.
I really loved the whole outfit in the end, especially the long-length lace kimono. I felt it all fitted together really well and reflected the festival vibe perfectly. I chose to wear a bright necklace to lighten up the outfit a bit, and a delicate anklet from Accessorize I'd purchased for an eventual summer holiday and have been itching to wear ever since. And the sandals were super comfy too, even if my toes did get a tad muddy!

Yes, I am aware that pretty much ALL my outfit is from H&M but that's what happens when you work in a shop and get staff discount. Sorrynotsorry.
