[Trend] Utility Jackets


Right readers, I owe you an apology.  A few weeks ago I blogged about the idea of going to a festival making my skin crawl and vowed never to do it.  Then I got offered tickets to Wilderness and said yes. I'm sorry. I did the typical blogger thing and have fallen for the freebie.  But you know what?  I'm so damn excited and it's caused me to take a real look at my wardrobe as I have very limited (read: no) suitable clothes. Thinking more about I'm not actually all that sorry... Oops.


I am not going to suddenly stock pile neon cropped vests and flower crowns, but I am going to need to get a couple of necessities.  I bought these denim cut off shorts last week which were a total win, and have decided to purchase a utility jacket as everyone seems to be wearing them at these things.  I've decided it is a worthy investment as having scoured Pinterest (and created a board here, obviously) I have concluded that I can wear this all year around - so I'm not falling into the retail-trap too much...


I love the idea of wearing mine with heels and a little dress as much as I do with my weekend basics and trainers.  I can't quite decided which look I prefer.  My only question is, where can I get a good one from? I have shopped around and seen a couple (particularly this Current Elliott one which is everywhere in the street style world, and this shirt style Topshop number) - but I need help from a seasoned festival-er - can you help?!


Ooh and if you fancy watching a total amateur "do" a festival, follow me on Instagram to see my adventures...
