I hope you are all doing well and are enjoying your weekend so far. I thought today I would bring you the second instalment to my South West Four Festival Series in collaboration with SOLETRADER. If you haven't done so already you can read the first post here! In preparation for the festival SOLETRADER sent me the ultimate survival package which consisted of some beauty goodies (you can see these over on my Instagram @SophiaMeola), a few pairs of shoes and also a snazzy waterproof poncho. So, I thought today I would share with you the outfit I wore on the actual day of the festival and also a few other outfit ideas that could work for future festivals or for any occasion you see fit.
Please note, even though I am a beauty, fashion and lifestyle blogger I am still pretty new to outfit posts but they are definitely something I want to post more - at the moment all outfit posts go straight to my Instagram (@SophiaMeola). A huge thank you to my lovely friend Priya who came with me to the festival and helped take some photos and also Papa Meola who helped take some outfit shots too!
Outfit #1: This is the outfit I decided to wear on the day of the festival and the main focus were these gorgeous Adidas Superstars* in a crisp white with snake print. I am a huge Superstar fan and also have the Original Foundation Supestars with the gold tongue detailing and will know doubt purchase more in the future - Adidas are killing it in the shoe department. I paired these with one of my favourite aline button detailed skirts, a basic grey knot crop and mauve bomber all from Missguided. For accessories I used my Barbour Bronson Backpack* (which is no longer available to purchase *cries*), New Look Choker and my GoodieRush Reflective Sunglasses*. These are currently on pre-order but if you are interested in a pair you can contact them directly.
Outfit #2: This is pretty much the same outfit as #1, however, I had a top change on the day and switched to this Floral Bardot number from Missguided. I have loved pairing cropped tops with skirts this summer and I think this is the perfect look for any festival - given it's not pouring it down with rain!
Outfit #3: This outfit definitely has more of a comfortable and casual vibes to it. The main focal point to this outfit was the wellies and we all know that your not prepared for a festival unless you have a pair of wellies on hand. These super girly navy, pink and white polka dot wellies* are from Joules and they are incredible comfortable. I paired these with my favourite Topshop Joni Jeans, another basic white knot crop and my mauve bomber from Missguided. For accessories I have on one of my favourite chokers from Pretty Little Thing and a pair of Vans Sunglasses* in a Tortoise Shell Wayfarer style.
Outfit #4: This is another comfortable outfit but still stylish none the less. I decided to whip out my cobalt blue Barbour Waterproof Poncho* - if this doesn't keep you dry during a festival then I don't know what will! These waterproof ponchos are great for camping and travelling, they are incredibly lightweight and fold away into it's own little storage bag - perfect for on the go! Also, you can't really go missing in a crowd when you're wearing this super bright and fun shade! Alongside the waterproof poncho I opted to wear my beloved Topshop Joni Jeans once again then underneath the poncho I have another basic black knot crop on - I have them in pretty much every colour and I absolutely love them! For shoes I wore these Sole Toucan Glitter Sandals* and my Pretty Little Thing choker.
I hope you all enjoyed this festival lookbook inspired post - I would love to hear your thoughts about the outfits and if you would like to see more outfit posts on my blog.
