All you have to do is create your ultimate festival outfit, which has to cost under £200. Of course I would absolutely love to win, but I also like seeing what other people create as their ultimate festival outfit, and how their style differs to mine! This is also a great opportunity to do my festival wish list for summer! If you would like more details on how to enter check out ShopStyle's blog or Natasha's blog post.

So, this is my ultimate festival outfit! This outfit is inspired by the festival I went to last year and am hopefully going to again this summer; Latitude. It was a gorgeous sunny weekend full of music, comedy, theatre and crafts, and best of all, no mud! There were multi-coloured sheep in a variety of pastel shades and parts of the festival extended into the woods, with most of the trees decorated in fairy lights by night, which gave the festival a magical and quirky feel to it, which I hope is reflected in my outfit!

The pinafore dress in an absolute favourite of mine, and I'm so happy dungarees and pinafores are trendy at the moment! They are so easy to wear, and look so cute. This denim one from Miss Selfridge with a fitted skirt has a real 60s feel to it, and would look perfect at a festival, and the faux leather straps add a real edge to it. I've teamed it with this broderie high neck crop top from Topshop, which has beautiful detailing on it. I think it goes really well with the pinafore, and you can't go wrong with white cotton for summer; fresh, comfortable and stylish! The leather cut out boots from Topshop definitely toughen up the look, and cut out boots are so big this summer. The heel is perfect for being on your feet all day at a festival, as they aren't too high but give you some support. These boots are just perfect, I love the design so much! I'm really into sunglasses with clear frames at the moment, and this pair from Topshop are great. They are a really flattering shape, and the metal arm with pale pink detail on the end is a nice touch. A bag you can carry across your body, such as a satchel or a backpack, is definitely a festival essential, and this pastel pink satchel from ASOS is a dream! The scallop detail is so cute and pastels are always a good trend for spring/summer. Lastly we come to the finishing touch, the daisy head band from Urban Outfitters. That's the great thing about festivals, you get the chance to wear clothes and accessories you maybe wouldn't wear everyday, and there are always lots of floral headbands and bindis floating around Latitude! I went for this understated daisy one because I think it's so pretty and dainty, and really goes with the rest of the outfit. Also, it looks so much like a real daisy chain, which adds to it's charm.

I hope you enjoyed my Festival Shopping Challenge and got some inspiration for your own festival wardrobe! Remember, if you want to enter the competition yourself, head over to ShopStyle's blog or Natasha's blog post for all the details.
