Victorious Festival Outfit with Long Tall Sally

Festival season has finished :-( I went to Victorious Festival in Portsmouth for the first time this year, which is a shock really considering how close it is to where I live. I went on Saturday 26th August for the day, which was around £48 for a last minute ticket. I went with the girls I used to live with in Brighton when we all went to uni and it was brilliant to see them again! 


We had a lovely, fairly lazy day, wondering around from stage to stage, checking out the food and chatting in the sun. It was a really hot day!

I wore this gorgeous new Long Tall Sally dress which I was sent from their Autumn collection - it's called the Spot Collar Tunic Dress and costs £59. I paired it with my New Look sunhat (similar here). my favourite trainers - New Balance 420 Micro Mesh in black from ASOS, and ASOS leather waist and hip belt (which is a great invention by the way, I've been wearing it with everything!) The amazing floral headband was from a Rose Road charity stall at the festival. I also cracked out my old Leather Satchel Co oxblood patent satchel which I haven't used in ages. I forgot how gorgeous it was. Plus can you believe these fantastic earrings are from ASDA!


There were lots of lovely things to look at and explore between sets, such as this #surfacetensionuk sculpture which made our eyes go funny! Perfect for selfies!


We also strolled by lots of little stages all dotted around with interesting things to see and listen to. This stage had some unsigned rappers, and was surrounded by old records!




We heard some great sets. We found a spot below a pink flag so we could wonder off to the toilets, bar or to get food and stayed near the main stage. We saw Stereophonics, Maximo Park, Jake Bugg and Frank Turner (who was my favourite). Sadly we didn't get to see Frightened Rabbit on the second stage, but I heard they were great.


I'd really recommend Victorious for those of you who want a casual festival which isn't too expensive. It's easy to get accommodation in Portsmouth or Gosport, and you can walk to the festival without much trouble, so no hassle camping or feeling gross either! I'm definitely going to try and get earlier tickets next year (and save some money)
