Bloggers Style

Clothes in rack

Yesterday, the Goodstock charity shop in Manchester opened its doors and let bloggers take over for a styling challenge. Myself and the other bloggers had access to the store's entire stock and were challenged to create a festival-ready look.

As the store stocks clothing of every size, shape and style, everyone managed to create very different outfits around the same common theme. Some chose tropical-inspired pattern and bright colors, while others preferred bold solid colors, and others took inspiration from vintage pieces.

I decided to create quite a mainstream summer festival look by picking out some extra-short denim shorts, a vintage floral top with a very light fabric, and a patterned rucksack. I finished my look by picking a flower crown off of Goodstock's store front display. If I were to wear this look out to a festival, I would probably complete my mainstream streak by pairing the outfit with some waterproof wellies.

The top was the first thing I picked out, and I instantly fell in love with it. On a day-to-day, I would probably wear it with some light-wash ripped jeans, or some skinny dark jeans to match the collar, but for my festival look I thought shorts were more appropriate.

When accessorizing, I tried to match colors and not patterns. While I found a few rucksacks with floral on them, I chose this one because the brown tones matches the ones on the shirt quite well.

What do you think of my festival look? How would you style for a summer festival on a budget?
