Whilst I've had my fair share of raving this summer with Ibiza still not getting ticked off my list (boo you whore), it feels like this is the end of my festival frolicking this summer. Last time I checked...summer went sour; I mean the frizzy hair paired with the unpredictable weather is becoming far more than just a nuisance. The 'WHAT DO I WEAR TODAY' fiasco is becoming a serious issue. It is too humid to wear a puffa jacket but it's pouring with rain; so you either NEED some form of hood/hat/umbrella or anything to cover your damn hair! Not even good old John Freida can help me here.....which is why I decided to go eau naturale for SW4 (and no that doesn't mean I went naked..)! Embracing my natural curls has been serving me extremely well recently and I am growing to love it more and more! It is SO funny how: as you get older you realise that 'things' you wouldn't do or wear are now becoming far more appealing and so totally acceptable!

Saturday's look was...well this time I am going to go from the bottom up. I literally can't get enough of these frilly socks! They just accentuate every outfit. My green frilly socks were yet another one of Bea's BARGAIN BUYS! I stumbled across these bad boys in the queue for paying, in which I discovered they were only £2 a pair...OBVIOUSLY I bought about 6. This particular style is a fold over design, like what you wore in prep-school. The socks pair perfectly with my biker boots by folding them over my boots. As for the skater skirt...you have all seen this before, my bargain buy from back in December last year! I whipped it straight off the sale rail for a mere £6...winning!

The cropped turtle-neck tank...STAPLE ITEM THIS SEASON. I am now the beholder of this top in white, black, burgundy and dark green and I bloody love it! Turtle necks are so cute paired over/under and with pretty much anything. I tend to wear them under dresses and paired with skirts...mainly because I tend to NEVER wear trousers see here.

If you're as edgy as a circle, try these circle frames....these shades are quite punchy and can alter an outfits image entirely.

There are just two more music festivals booked into the diary for this year:-
- The Zoo Project (YES that means dressing up as animals RAWR)
- Ceremony Festival (comes from the creators of FOUND Festival situated in Finsbury Park)
