I know, I know. It's not been that long since my last post and it's not the day I would usual post but IT'S COMPETITION TIME! I found out that MoneySupermarkter is holding a competition coincidentally named like my blog ha, ha! So I thought it would be a great idea to challenge myself and enter the competition. Since I'm pretty new to blogging and I have before entered any competition like that I didn't really know how to go on about it, but I'm really excited to find out what the people from the judging panel think of my style and if I'm capable of winning any of the categories.
Let me tell you a little bit more about the competition itself. Everyone who wants to take part in the competition must create three different outfits in different categories. The categories are casual wear, beach wear and party wear, there is no any rules of what you have to pick therefore you're really flexible and be able to create three different outfits that you would wear and would reflect your personality, outfits must be under £200. There will be a different winner for each category and the winners will be chosen by the representative judges who are also bloggers. The winner for each category, will win £200 to buy their winning outfit.
This is what I came up with. I would love to find out what you all think about those outfits and what one is your favorite so feel free to leave a comment down below. And wish me luck :).
Here I went for a bright shirt full of details, patterns are very trendy this season and the bright colours make the shirt stand out, it also adds the 'summer vibe' to the whole outfit in general. I would also pair it with my all time favourite chain bowtie to give it more texture, the dark bowtie would also contrast really nicely with the bright shirt. As I like my outfits more casual I also picked light blue jeans therefore to make the outfit more formal I decided to combine it with a black leather jacket and black shoes toning the whole outfit down and making it more formal. The bracelets would also give the outfit a proper formal finish .
I love comfort and to feel good in what I wear, but at the same time I also want to stay fashionable. That's what I tried to focus on while creating this look. Pattern and comic designs are hitting all the shops on the high streets this season along side with bright, bold and eye-catching beanies. I picked this batman tee from Topman and combined it with the light blue denim look-a-like joggers, to add a little bit more colour and make the outfit brighter I added this bright orange beanie as I think it brightens the whole outfit and makes it more summery. I feel like the bright beanies balances the whole outfit and work really well with the faded design on the t-shirt. For comfort I picked the white vans, vans are probably my most favourite shoes. Since it's a casual outfit I also picked this backpack from River Island as I tried to make it as personal as possible and I always have a bag or a bagpack with me. The gold spikey bracelet is a nice piece of jewellery to finish of this look.
For the beach look I went for another big trend this season tie-dye. Tie-dye, dip-dye and oversized vests are one of the biggest trends for spring/summer 2013. Also I love the pastel colours, this vest makes me think of nothing but summer and sunny days at the beach therefore I had to for it. I paired it up with light denim shorts, pair of sunnies, dark necklace and navy Toms which balance out the bold, black and gold snap back. The snap back is the most eye-catching piece for this outfit.
