I am writing this tucked up bed, absolutely drained from Leeds Festival yesterday but oh wow I had so much fun. Meeting The 1975 will probably remain the high point of my year, and as always Blink-182 were incredible. I actually wish that I was there for the whole weekend but I’m away in Manchester tomorrow night for a girls night with Mum, and plenty of shopping!

I wanted something super comfortable and chilled out for Leeds this year, so I went for this River Island vest top with the classic Mean Girls quote, and this Topshop checked shirt layered over for a casual vibe. I teamed them with my high waisted New Look shorts and opaques and long socks to keep my legs warm. I also took this River Island bag with me, it was the perfect size to carry everything I needed for a day in the festival without the convenience of being able to leave things in my tent. I also had a denim jacket and raincoat with me as well for warmth and any adverse weather! It’s definitely my favourite festival outfit I’ve ever worn as it was both comfortable, practical and stylish and I’m sure I’ll be rocking something similar next year.

What did you wear to Leeds/Reading this year? Would you have styled this outfit differently?
