I think this outfit might be my favourite one out of all my entries. For my Paris outfit I wanted something chic and stylish to fit in with the fabulous French ladies, but I still wanted it to be 'me'. Hence the leather jacket. I took my inspiration from good old Carrie Bradshaw when she wore her beautiful tulle skirt in Paris in the Sex and the City series. And seeing as tulle seems to be all the rage at the moment I thought it would be perfect. I paired it with a stripy crop top because you can't go to Paris and not wear stripes. I was tempted to opt for some sky scraping heels, Carrie Bradshaw style, but decided to keep it realistic with some bang on trend flatforms instead. Nobody really wants to be climbing up a million steps in the Eiffel Tower in 5inch heels, do they?
I added the Zara Office City bag because, hello? It's beautiful. I really wanted to include it in one of my entries and it seemed to fit perfectly in this one. When you're sightseeing you're bound to pick up lots of souvenirs and maps, etc, so you'll need a nice roomy bag like this one to carry it all around in!
And lastly, the flower crown. I figured when you're in the fashion capital of the world you may as well go a little out of your comfort zone. The flowers and the ballerina skirt are all very girly and pretty so I think the black accessories pull everything together and make it a bit more edgy. Something I would definitely wear!
Full Moon party in Thailand
Bikini bottoms, River Island - £12
Bikini top, Topshop - £17
Sandals, Zara - £26
Bag, New Look - £19.99
Hat, H&M - £7.99
'Rebel', MAC - £14
Bracelets, H&M - £5.99
Necklace, Etsy - £11
Total = £127.97
This turned out to be by far the cheapest entry out of the five for me. Probably due to the fact there is no substantial clothing in this one. I have never been to a Full Moon party in Thailand but from my research it seems that nobody really wears much more than a bikini so I decided there was simply no need for anything else. I'm loving high waisted bikinis this season, and this printed one from River Island is just beautiful! I prefer to pair printed bikini bottoms / tops with the alternating item in a plain block colour so instead of using the matching RI top I chose this simple Topshop one instead. The accessories really do the talking with this outfit and the neon jewellery seemed a pretty perfect match for a beach party. Topped off with simple sandals and a big floppy hat and you're good to go! Not forgetting a huge bag to carry all your essentials (towel, camera, alcohol, etc). I chose the transparent one from new look because the material seems pretty beach friendly and you can't go wrong with perspex at the moment!
Cocktails in New York
Dress, Warehouse - £58
Belt, Mango - £22
Shoes, Zara - £65
Necklace, Dorothy perkins - £14
Knuckle clutch, Boohoo - £22
Total = £181
My final entry! For this one I kept it super simple, with just an LBD and lots of studded accessories. I think this outfit is really 'me' and definitely something I would wear should I happen to be in New York for cocktails. I wanted something a bit more special than a mini dress, but didn't want anything too dramatic and glamorous so I opted for this black dress with the mesh skirt which I think is a great compromise! I saw Shenae Grimes wear something similar a while ago and it looked amazing. She has really cool style. Anyway I paired it with a knuckle clutch bag, because it just looks bad-ass, and the killer spiked heels from Zara with the studded waist belt pull the outfit together. I could definitely see myself in this outfit with a strawberry daiquiri in my hand. Could you?
