The elusive English summer. It's temperamental, but only so we may appreciate the good days with characteristic British gratitude.

Summer  /ˈsʌmə/ : the season in which to fall in love

These are the months that are saturated with festivals, barbecues and and sun-fuelled smiles. My boyfriend treated me to a glorious festival for my birthday, and the day was truly spectacular. Waves of happiness washed over the thousands as we indulged in the sweet sounds of Ben Howard and Bombay Bicycle Club.

I purchased whole outfits (and potential outfits) in blind anticipation of this festival. Bit embarrassing. Of course, my 70s obsession is still unshakable, and the thought of festivalling without a flower crown disgusts me. I settled on this bell-bottomed, flicky-haired combo and assumed the role of sassy boho birthday gal. I thought I'd recreate my festival look for this shoot with my lovely friend Catherine.

Crop Top - Topshop
Bell-Bottoms - Topshop
Sandals - Zara
Bag - H&M

Running through fields is socially acceptable if you're sporting flowers and lace, right? It seems anything goes at festivals, and it's all beautiful. 70s dance teepees, roller discos and group yoga sounds pretty perfect to me. I was shamefully late at getting on this festival bandwagon; this was my first, but sharing the experience with my best friend was perfect.

I hope you enjoyed this look! Have you been to any festivals this summer? 

These photos were taken by the talented Catherine Baker! Her photography is outstanding, so you have her to thank for my photo's quality upgrad! You can check out more of her work here:
