Entire Outfit: Matalan

When Matalan challenged me to style a festival inspired outfit, I couldn't have been more excited. Festival style is one of my favourite genres of fashion... I love the prints, the layering and the quirky accessories, it's such a fun way to dress!
With £50 to spend on an outfit, you may think it would be difficult to create a full ensemble, but Matalan is SO affordable, I managed to throw in a bag and shoes too.

My first choices for the outfit were the daisy print cami and the denim shorts, everyone knows by now how much I love my black and white, so these ticked all the boxes for me... the shorts are comfy and practical, I'd always choose shorts over skirts for festivals (who knows when you're going to have to sit on someone's shoulders to watch your favourite band?!) and the vest is girly but bold, ideal for a festival.
A must have for a festival is a kimono, I doubt anyone attends a festival without one these days. I chose this gorgeous crochet hem one in a khaki green colour, which I have to point out, only costs £8, bargain of the year right there! 
To accessorise the outfit I chose some black wellies with quilted tops, much needed for a festival and also super stylish and a cross body fringed bag, which is the perfect size to hold all your festival necessities and is secure with its zip fastening. 

I still can't believe how cheap this outfit was to put together... all I need now is a few more braids in my hair and some coloured eyeliner then I'm ready to go!

Are you going to a festival this year... What will you be wearing?
