Outfit Post: Lusty Layers (+WIN a £500 UK Adventure)


It’s been a pretty boring year travel wise, which is totally fine as I’ve been working hard and making a lot of changes so next year will be awesome, but I have itchy feet to go on an adventure. The folks at Uniqlo asked me what I would do if I had £500 to spend on an adventure in the UK and it’s a great question – there’s so much mischief to get up to without having to hop on a plane. That’s not all, though, Uniqlo have also invited you all to share what you’d do with the same £500 and the best idea will win their dream UK adventure (+ £100 to spend at Uniqlo)! Watch for entry details at the bottom of this post.

Recently my best friend moved down to Cornwall and it’s a whole world of adventure down there that I never knew existed. When I visited her last year she took me to this gorgeous private beach, Lusty Glaze, set into a cove with a cosy restaurant and bar, roaring fire and homely touches. If that’s not cool enough for you, Lusty Glaze also put on weddings, events and live music and the latter is where my dream UK adventure lies. If I had £500 to spend I’d arrange a music event at Lusty Glaze, put on my friend’s bands, grab a cosy blanket and lay on the beach under the stars.


I’ve been to endless music festivals in fields, but never on the beach! To keep in the festival spirit I’d want my outfit to have a huge chunk of Boho style; floral tights, wooden accessories and cute dresses with some broderie anglaise thrown in. With the UK weather being such a charming unpredictability I’d also need a pair of boots or wellies with layers and a cosy jacket for when the sun goes down. Uniqlo’s new Ultra Light Down collection is ideal, lightweight and soft and also packs into a little pouch for travelling. I don’t usually like this type of outerwear as a fashion girl, but the cut of their Parka is surprisingly flattering!

Outfit Post: On Hallowed Ground

Grunge Outfit, Black, Leather

I wore this outfit last weekend for one of the greatest days of the year, so far; Boyfriend and I travelled to Manchester to the very first 6 Music Festival where I worked my vast gig attending experience to get us to the front for Midlake and Damon Albarn. In the afternoon we went to Almost Famous burgers, where we felt they really didn’t live up to the hype …they were OK. I’ve had better. We stayed over in Salford so we could have a relaxed evening with a few drinks and then stumble the 20 minutes back to the hotel. The following day we grabbed (much better!) food and more booze at our favourite Manchester venue – Night & Day cafe, bought a handful of records and had a venture through the famous vintage emporium of Afflecks before passing out on the train home full of the good things in life.

What To Wear To A Gig

I’ve been looking for some boots like this for a while, but sadly I’m on a tight budget these days and boots are an expensive vice. Luckily Shoe Zone dropped by and asked if I’d like to try a pair of theirs and I found the perfect ones for gigging in these faux fur trimmed lace-ups. They have a great sized heel which is just right for stomping along to music and also does those things to ladies’ legs that we all worship heels for, yet they’re still super comfortable and practical …and under £23! I would never have thought of Shoe Zone for affordable boots, but I’ve already been recommending them to my friends.

My necklace is from Black Willow Jewelry and I’ve been wearing it to death since Mama Oneten spoiled me with it for Christmas. It’s been on my wish list for an age (along with the rest of the collection!) and I think it really adds something to this quite casual, slouchy outfit, while the leather-look leggings make it a bit more dressy and a bit less lounge-y. Being comfortable at a gig is so important, especially when you’re hanging around for 5+ hours, but I like having the little extras that still make me feel like I’m getting dressed up.
