WHAT I WORE TO LEEDS CARIBBEAN FESTIVAL…

It is officially Fall season and the UK is also back to its rainy behaviour. While I’m not here for the cold, I actually don’t mind it. It is the rain and the darkness that annoys me. I hate the short days with passion. Kinda depressing if you ask me. Anyways… lets talk about summer and one of the events I attended. Y’all know summer is festival season in almost every part of the world and my town was no different. The annual Caribbean festival was held last month and while I wasn’t too keen to go, I had to do it for my little man (the things we do as parents). The last time I attended was three years ago. Each year something bad happens at this event and I’m not a fan of that. Anyways it was good I attended because I got the chance to meet fellow blogger, Samantha (below). She probably thinks I’m crazy because I was so excited. Lol!! Isn’t she beautiful?

For the festive season, I opted for a black, midi pleated skirt and a frill polka dot blouse. Festival calls for comfort in my style book and that is the route I took. The highlight of the look is probably the colourful earrings. I got these from my visit in Ghana years ago. Isn’t it lovely?

Enjoy some shots and hope you’re Fall ready.

What trend are you looking forward to trying?

    What a beautiful festival! And I love your polka dot top so much. I always get geeky when I meet fellow bloggers, haha! I’m really looking forward to all things plaid, but I do that pretty much year-round anyway.

    I like rainy days, but in spain we don’t have as many as in the UK… and I also hate that days are so short…
    Anyways, love this dotted shirt.
    Have a great day!

    This festival looked so much fun and your outfit is so cute! Love the polka dots! I don’t like the darkness and shorter daylight as well. Definitely the worst part of Fall.
