Ultimate festival jacket

Happy hump day everyone! If I said I've been feeling fine these days I would be lying (this negativity is only going to be quick!) Basically, I have really been struggling to find my purpose at the moment. I'm accepting that my part time job in retail is literally a dead end job and I'm not interested in becoming a manager. But when it comes to blogging that I've loved since day one, I've struggled to to know my place in the blogging industry. I get the impression that there is such a divide now between bigger bloggers and smaller bloggers and I really do not know where I fit in, or if I still feel like I have a purpose in the industry. Its definitely not the same as it used to be and thats to be expected, but meh, I'm missing the old times where you could Instagram a photo up against a wall in the evening with the warm, crappy lighting and everyone would still love it. But I will leave this rant for another time, lets talk about the ultimate festival jacket!

So it's about time I blogged this khaki jacket from Boohoo. I went to a festival in May and couldn't decide what to jacket to wear, but the people of twitter voted this one when I couldn't decide between this jacket, or another one from Missguided. It comes in two sizes which is rather bizarre. The S/M or M/L. I'm wearing the smaller size and its still a tad loose so this is meant to be an oversized fit. I love the detail on the back and it's also a very lightweight material. You could easily say this is a shirt more than a jacket. But I got so many compliments when I wore it and the poms poms on the front made the perfect 'stress ball/fidget spinner/'. It was perfect to prod these whilst waiting in the queues at the bar!

I just decided to keep the rest of the outfit black with my Missguided bodysuit and some old River Island shorts. The Ego boots were perfect to wear just to add some subtle print for the bottom half of the look. Their shoe collection is insane right now! 

The Quay Sunnies are rather old but I've luckily been able to find them on a UK website which pretty much sells the entire collection! I love the tortoiseshell frame which makes these practical for your entire summer wardrobe. 

We also need to quickly discuss this gorgeous rose gold Daniel Wellington watch which got kindly sent to me! I'm normally into chunky statement watches but admittedly for a festival that may not be sensible but a sleek and small watch like this one is perfect! I'm only wearing it for a festival look but you can easily wear this for an evening occasion or it would make the perfect day, workwear watch. It also comes in silver if rose gold isn't your cuppa!
