I recently went to the Live at Leeds festival on April 30 and had an amazing time. The Blogger Programme and The Zeitgeist Agency sent me to enjoy the festival which is held every year in Leeds, at different venues across the city. It takes quite a bit of planning before hand, such as deciding which acts to see, what to bring, and what outfit to wear.
I was luckily provided with some great accessories by BLOC Eyewear* and Dixi* to make my look different to other outfits I’ve put together. My shiny ring, which reads “born a bad seed” is absolutely perfect for the Live at Leeds festival and blends into my outfit with ease. Similarly, the sunglasses are super simple and don’t look strange with my look, which is what I look for in accessories. I was previously wearing an enormous necklace but it just got in the way and starred to irritate me. For me, the lighter the accessory, the better. I don’t like feeling weighed down, especially if I already have a few layers on.
For the outfit, I immediately decided I was going to wear this bright orange trench jacket I got aaaages ago. I found it on the floor in a changing room with a hole in the shoulder. After taking it to the checkout, the Miss Selfridge staff confirmed it was a sale item at the time (the very last in stock) and I could have it at a discount price as there’s a hole alone the seam. Luckily, my mum’s a fashion designer so it could be fixed and has stayed with me every since. I wear this jacket quite frequently, because it goes so well with bright blue denim in a casual look, or over black for a night time look. It has pockets, and a loose belt which I tie around the back – definitely a one-of-a-kind gem! I also have a habit of wearing my leather jacket everywhere. I’m trying to break it, but they’re just too versatile and no one seems to be able to predict the weather in the UK! I brought along my faux leather just in case the clouds came in and it kept me warm once it got dark.
My skirt is a more recent buy from Next. Initially, I bought it for a night out around Call Lane (my favourite area) in Leeds. The best thing about Call Lane is that it’s not an out out street, and there are so many bars and restaurants to chose from, so it’s best to wear something casual but put-together. This utility-inspired black skirt is ideal, and is also high waisted so helps to create a more feminine silhouette. As my jacket is so bright, I didn’t want to clash it with another colour so stuck to black for basically everything else. Live at Leeds was a super fun night and I have to say a huge thanks to The Blogger Programme and The Zeitgeist Agency for sending me along – more posts to come!
