Jubilee Weekend

Happy Jubilee Queenie! On Sunday, despite my hangover, I was up bright and early to go watch the Jubilee celebrations from Chelsea Embankment. My photos aren't very clear, but what can you do with an iPhone camera and a river between you.

I'll pre-warn that this is a reasonably photo heavy post!

I was really close to the front which made it warmer against the horrible day. However it also meant I was surrounded by flag waving idiots who had covered themselves in Union Jacks. Yuck. I'm all for patriotism, but some people don't know when to stop.

Then on Monday was the Banquet Big Day Out, a local festival put on by Kingston record store, Banquet Records. I was too drunk to take that many photos, but I did manage to sneak in some outfit snaps before we left.

Shirt - H&M
Shorts - Vintage Levi's
Jacket - Topshop
Scarf - Charity shop
Trilby - Charity shop
Pearl collar - Primark
Backpack - Topshop
Socks - Primark
Wellies - Reading Festival
Rings - Oasis & eBay
Bracelets - Oasis, Topshop & H&M

I didn't actually end up wearing my wellies since it wasn't raining as much as I expected so I swapped them for my flatforms which are now a complete mess! We only saw about 3 bands, one of which was Wheatus! But it was a fun day anyway seeing as nobody was particularly bothered about the music side, especially when the bars started doing 2-4-1 drinks.

"What were you doing?" You ask. Well, I have no idea either but it was bloody good fun and yesterday was a painful recovery! But now it's back to real life - the bank holiday is over and I have to spend my days behind a bar not in front of/dying on one. Cry.

Hope you all enjoyed the Jubilee too!
