Outfit: Top: Jack Wills via Leeds Fest Oxfam Pop Up, Shorts: Customised Matalan, Hair Bow: Primark

Day 3 and the final of my Leeds Fest posts! The sunday brought the best weather of the weekend which meant I finally got to ditch the coat and let the mad festival hair fly free - guess which mug forgot to pack a hairbrush? Yup, that would be me. 

Vertical stripes are never the photographers best friend, but when I spotted this Jack Wills top in the onsite Oxfam stall for £6, I wasn't willing to leave it's pastelly goodness behind. The fabric is lovely and towelling, a perfect transitional piece from summer to autumn. Teamed with a primark hair bow and black denim jeans which I cut into shorts, it was a nice way of feeling girly even after three days of no showers and a diet of exclusively chinese noodles. I love buying clothes at festival stalls - it's a great way of keeping souvenirs that are a little more affordable that the traditional merch. 

Bandwise, it was another busy day - I caught sets from Forever Cult (my old housemates band, well worth checking out here), Royal Blood, Peace, Wolf Alice, Circa Waves, Foster The People, Chvrches, We Are Scientists, Bombay Bicycle Club and of course, my future husband's band, Arctic Monkeys. Sadly the ten minute gap between Bombay finishing and Arctics starting meant we had pretty much no chance of getting anywhere near the front, so our only shots of the divine Mr Turner were sultry side glances from the big screens. Still, his Yorkshire Rose embroidered jacket was quite something to behold, let alone his casual verse of Mardy Bum. Oh Alex, you tease. Because so many people had flocked to Arctic Monkeys early, Bombay Bicycle club ended up half empty which was a crying shame, because they sounded incredible. Still, there was plenty of space for me to throw 99p cocktail fuelled shapes and reflect upon how 'Evening/Morning' really is one of my favourite songs ever. Until next year Leeds Fest!
