After seeing on Daisybutter's blog regarding a competition teamed up with New Look, I knew I just had to give it ago. This is what it is all about:
"Imagine you are going to Ibiza for a long weekend. Create a post on your blog stating which items from the New Look store you would wear to complete each of the following outfits on your holiday. You have 5 outfits for 5 occasions, so which items would you wear and why?
Choose from: Travel Style, Poolside, Beach It, Sunset Supper, Beach to Club."
1- Denim Stud Collar Sleeveless Shirt £24.99
2- Black PU Side Panel Leggings £12.99
4- Steve Madden Black Quilted Tassel Bag £64.99
5- Rose Gold and Black Silicon Sports Watch £12.99
-Most importantly when you go on your travels, you opt for comfort and that is my aim with this outfit. However, style is just as important :) So the trendy denim with the collar detailing is great. I chose sleeveless because sometimes it can be a little stuffy on board and you don't want to be restricted to how much you can move because unless your flying business class, you ain't got much space.
-These aren't any old black leggings, they're embellished! Fancy eh, and so on point right now following the Baroque n roll trend.
-You might be thinking these why the hell have you got boots. But I have it planned. Weather in the UK is horrendous, most of the time. So... slugging your luggage onto transport and in and around the airport aren't gonna make you a happy bunny if your feet are soaked. When your on the plane, you can kick back and relax.
-The bag goes well with the black theme I happen to have going on. quilted tassel bag gives a rock-chic kind of feel. And can be worn on the wrist or on the shoulder with a strap. It is a decent size for hand luggage and will fit all those important necessities.
-You definitely need to keep track of time- don't want to miss your flight! This rose gold watch in contrast with the black compliments the outfit.
6- White Beaded Beach Cover Up £16.99
7- Multicolour Ombre Zig Zag Cut Out Swimsuit £22.99
-If your just lounging at the side of the pool, I like to have a light cover up which is just easy to slip off if you want a dip in the pool.
-OMBRE, OMBRE! I love this pastel print which will look great with the white throw over and even better in the sun. Th e cut out is quite sexy too.
-The multicoloured sandals look very pretty with the swimsuit as they match well. The chain detailing is great too.
-Preventing the blinding sun has to be these chic round sunglasses that will match your outfit due to the fact it has every colour of the rainbow in it.
10- Green Palm Leaf Print Cut Out Swimsuit £22.99
11- Large Round Sunglasses £1.00
- This swimsuit should emphasize the beautiful scenic greenery that lines the beaches. Take in the Vitamin D but remember your sun cream!
-These simple big round glasses are very convenient and check out that price! :o
12-Te Amo Black and Gold Aztec Peplum Dress £26.99
14- Black Croc Print Zip Tassel Clutch £12.99
15- Gold Diamante Sports Watch £14.99
- This dress has the gracious aztec print and peplum style all in one. woo! It is a great evening dress for a warm evening out.
-These wedges are quite comfy to wear for a night and possibly a stroll along the coast line. The spikes at the back of the shoes go well with the dress pattern.
-The clutch is quite compact and matches the outfit being black with gold detailing.
-The watch is a lovely accessory to team up with the gold theme. However when your having fun, you won't be looking at the time :)
16- Black Belted Skater Dress £14.99
17- Stone Canvas Cork Wedge Shoes £11.00
18- White Iridescent Envelope Clutch £14.99
-The skater dress is quite versatile when it comes to any occasion especially being black. It is what you dress it up with is the key factor.
-The white shoes and clutch give a classy feel to the outfit. The wedges are simple and can easily be slipped off when on the beach.
I had so much fun putting these outfits together and I hope you liked them too. I must admit that I added a few items to my shopping basket as a result of this challenge- so thats a plus. I so wish I could be jetting off to Ibiza now....
Why not give this fun task a go yourself? (It ends the 24th August 2012)
