Fashion Friday | ValeFest 2014

Although I’ve called this a Fashion Friday post, it’s more of a lifestyle-fashion-little-bit-of-everything sort of affair. Those of you familiar with UoB will no doubt know what ValeFest is, but for those of you that aren’t, here’s a little taster…

ValeFest is essentially a small non-profit festival, hosted on The Vale student village in Birmingham. You pay £5, £10 or £15 for a ticket and are rewarded with new unsigned bands, food stalls, an after party and the fact all money spent goes to charity. How wonderful!

Initially, extremely hungover from Fab the night before, I waddled down to ValeFest in jeans and an old jumper just to pick up lunch so I could eat and then nap back in my flat.

Raving at the After Party!

The music was fantastic, the food was even better (Pad Thai, waffles and fro-yo, get in ma belly!) and even the after party didn’t disappoint. ValeFest 2014, you were incredible. Bring on next year’s celebrations!

Does your university put on anything similar? What festival fashions have you been loving this summer? Let me know in the comments below!

Until next time,
