Off to Ibiza I go…!

Hello lovelies,

The gorgeous Michelle from fashion and style blog Daisybutter has collaborated with New Look to host a summer suitcase competition. Each participant would need to create five different styles with items from the New Look website. There are four prizes for four winners, the main prize is for best overall entry and the other three will be runner’s up for most creative, most social and most stylish. How exciting is this?

The scenario is, I’m about to jet off to Ibiza for a long weekend and I need to create five different outfits for five occasions using items from the New Look store. The five looks are:

  1. Travel Style
  2. Pool Side
  3. Beach It
  4. Sunset Supper
  5. Beach To Club

Ibiza….. Here I come!

Travel Style

I always like to be as comfortable as I can when travelling as it can take a while before you reach your destination, but when you do, of course you want to look your best. So the best thing for me is to pick something warm, as it does get chilly on planes and then something that will make me look stylish at landing. I chose this sweet floral maxi dress to start with which is comfy and easy to wear and a cropped denim jacket for a bit of warmth. Then, slip on a pair of sandals, accessorise with a flowered headband and duffle bag and you’re good to go.

Jacket – £24.99, Sandals – £7.00, Maxi Dress – £29.99, Headband – £2.00, Bag – £14.99

Pool Side
Being by the pool all day, you never know who you may bump in to (wink, wink). This on trend neon lime green bikni set will ensure all eyes are on you, teamed with a pair of diamante sandals, tortoise shell shades to protect your eyes and to also disguise the fact that you may be checking out someone’s pecs. Add a pretty pair of feather earrings and a pink lipgloss for pouting, then you’re ready to hit up those rays.

Earrings – £3.99, Lipgloss – £1.99, Bikini Top – £5.99, Bikini Bottoms – £3.99,

Sunglasses – £8.00, Sandals – £6.00

Beach It
A day at the beach for me means relaxing and soaking up the sun. A cutesy little floral bikini will ensure you stay cool and stylish, matched with a pink kaftan and black sandals for ultra comfort when needing to pop off to get drink. I have also matched this outfit with a stack of bangles and a gemstone headband for that little extra glitzyness.

Kaftan – £5.00, Sandals – £35.00, Bikini Top – £22.99, Bikini Bottoms – £19.99,

Bangles – £4.99, Headband – £6.99

Sunset Supper
After a relaxing day in sun, it’s time to get ready for supper. You’re heading out to a nice little restaurant overlooking the beach, where you have a great view of the sunset. What do you pick to wear? Fear not, I have something for you… This easy to wear white dip hem blouse (great for hiding bloated bellies after dinner) tucked in to a pair of patterned trousers will give you that uber cool casual look. Accessorise with a tan coloured skinny belt and a couple of gold statement rings for a that teeny glam edge. Lastly, pick up your chick across the body bag and slip in to a pair of peep toed heels and you’re ready to eat your heart out.

Almond Ring – £3.99, Stone Ring £3.99, Belt – £2.99, Blouse – £19.99, Trousers – £16.99,

Bag – £54.99, Shoes – £15.99

Beach To Club
Ibiza is famous for its amazing nightlife, so you must make sure you take all your party essentials for a good night out. Heading from the beach straight to the club, you can whip off your bikini and sink straight into this gorgeous black dress teamed with red platform heels. Transfer your phone, money and hotel key into this studded red clutch, then pop on some arm candy, attach these simple, yet elegant earrings and off you go to party the night away. Oh and do remember to chuck your beach bag in to the cloak room because you may need your flat shoes to walk home after the night ends.

Bikini Top – £12.99, Bikini Bottoms – £3.99, Bag – £17.99, Sandals – £11.99,
Dress – £31.94, Silver Feather Bracelet – £5.99, Black Sparke Ball Bracelet – £3.99,
Stud Earrings – £1.99, Clutch – £15.99, Shoes – £24.99

Above are all my outfits for this entry. What do you think? Would you wear any of them?

To conclude, I would like to thank Michelle and New Look for this fantastic competition. I thoroughly enjoyed putting it together. It was fun and really tested my styling skills. Overall, I am happy with my outfits and hope you’ll like it too.

With Love, Julie
