Brighton Pride

One of the best things about living in Brighton is the Pride festival that took place last Saturday 3rd August.  The parade starts quite early and this year I missed it due to general stressing about what to wear, so me and my friends just headed down to the festival site around lunch time to join in the party!

It rained the night before Pride, so like many girls I was SOO confused about what to wear!! Do I wear wellies? Do I take a coat? Or do I just risk the weather and wear very little at all? These were all important questions going through my head at 8am on Saturday morning!

In the end the weather looked like it was starting to clear up, so I hoped for the best and decided to go for a simple denim shorts and black vest combo with a pretty tasselled kimono over the top to dress it up. I searched high and low for a kimono before my holiday in June and I finally found this beauty hiding at the back of the rails in River Island about two days before I went away! It was exactly what I had been looking for and with only one left in store it was clearly meant to be. On holiday I wore it to pool parties over a plain black bikini, but when it starts to get a bit colder back in the UK I will probably pair it up with a pair of skinny jeans. 

Did anyone else go to Brighton Pride last weekend? What outfit did you wear? 

Kimono - River Island (sold out)
Black vest - Zara
Rings - H&M
