lose yourself in the music

I have returned safe and well, albeit a little weary, croaky voiced and beer soaked, from another amazing weekend at the V festival in Chelmsford. I have to say this year was definitely the best I have been to - some awesome acts and some great friends to enjoy them with. Our spirits weren't even dampened by the dismal downpour on Saturday; nothing a quick visit to Pincho Ponchos didn't sort out! Bruno Mars soon made the sun shine again and my absolute highlight was Eminem last night, with appearances from Rihanna and D12. Just wow.
Anyway, I thought I would share with you my outfits over the two days.

tee - H&M
denim shorts - H&M (shortened by me)
scarf - vintage
oversized gothic cross necklace - This Charming Girl

dress - H&M
oversized gothic cross necklace - This Charming Girl


Both days I wore my gothic cross necklace which I received from This Charming Girl a few days before V festival. I instantly knew it would be perfect to wear over the weekend and I really love the length and detail of the piece.  
This Charming Girl is home to some lovely vintage and contemporary jewellery and for a limited time they are offering my readers a 15% discount on any purchases. Simply use the code PEARLSANDPOODLES at the checkout.


I hope you all had rocking weekends!

You look stunning hun :) Love both the outfits. The scarf over the shorts looks gorgeous.
I adore the necklace, I'm in love with crosses at the moment, so may have to take a sneaky look at that when I get paid
How good was Eminem? I'm not really a fan, at all, but he was bloody brilliant.

A few have asked about the crotchet H&M dress. Unfortunately I got this about 6 months ago so don't think it is available anymore sadly. x
