V Festival: Day Two

Day two - the music begins! My friends and I were so excited to get going. We were up early (too early), had breakfast, got ready, had a couple of fruity ciders and bounded into the arena at about half twelve.



Dress: Motel @ Asos // Shirt (worn as kimono): H&M // Neclace: H&M // Wellies: Tu @ Sainsbry's // Fedora: Primark

This motel smock dress was such a find! It's reduced to £21 right now and what a bargain that is! I think sunflowers have been an ultimate festival print this season and the smock style dress is nice and practical; loose fitting and comfy (great for dancing like crazy round a field and for using those pesky portaloos!)

I've recycled another Wireless Festival piece with this H&M black blouse. It's great worn as a kimono as it goes with so much - in fact I think I've only worn it as a done up shirt once! I'll aim to wear it again properly soon but I love how items can be so versatile as it makes them even more worth it.

It had been raining a bit the day before, so I had to put the wellies on again. These Sainsbry's ones were really comfy and kept my feet nice and dry too. Being a plain colour, they also went with the outfits I packed.

We had a jam packed first day, starting off by seeing one of my favourite bands as a kid - All Saints.




We were pretty close to the front which was awesome! I almost felt overwhelmed at being able to see a girl band I loved so much when I was younger. They performed all the classics; my favourites being Black Coffee and Pure Shores.


 



After popping out the tent for a bottle of water, we managed to catch the end of Kiesza belting out her hit song 'Hideaway'. Then we headed straight to the front of the stage again to catch my girl crush of the moment, Foxes. She has an insanely good live voice and had a fun and energetic set - I'll definitely be looking to see her again.



After a little gap to get food, we made our way to the main stage. The evening began with a bit of Bastille. I really like all their songs so singing away in the crowd was a lot of fun and they even did a brilliant cover of TLC's 'No Scrubs'.






Then came Ed Sheeran. He is such a talented guy! It was just him and a guitar and the crowd loved him. It was a great atmosphere.

 




The best 'til last. The one and only Justin Timberlake *SCREAM*. He is without a doubt the best artist I have ever had the privilege of seeing live. He's a fantastic performer; an amazing singer AND dancer who provided the best set list jam packed with hits. The live jazz band also added to the quality of the performance and I was left absolutely speechless when it ended.  I would recommend his show to everyone!

After all that excitement, we headed back to camp where we stayed up chatting and laughing with a few other campers.

A brilliant first day that left me feeling even more excited for the next!
