New Look #HolidayHop Competition with DaisyButter!

New Look have teamed up with DaisyButter to launch the #HolidayHop competition which I'm really excited to enter. The task is to create 5 looks for 5 different situations for a holiday in Ibiza. Competitions like this really give you a chance to get a feel for the brand as you often (or in my case) end up looking at every single item there is to offer to create your perfect outfit. I'm really glad I took part in this competition, if I hadn't I would have no idea that New Look now stock Steve Madden, possibly one of my favourite shoe designers! (-sorry bank balance!-)
Anyway, enough blabbering from me, here are my entries

Look 1: Travel Style

vest top, necklace, kimono, jeans, bag, sandles, nail polish

I'm always concious of baggage allowance when I'm flying, so I like to wear a pair of jeans when travelling as they are probably the heaviest item of clothing you can get and -call me a cynical brit- I'm always paranoid that it'll be cold so I like to have something to wear that's a bit warmer! I've teamed these jeans with a kimono and gladiators to give a relaxed summery look that won't have me sweating as soon as I land. I get so bored travelling so I've added the nail polish as a functional product, it keeps me occupied on a long journey! 

Look 2: Poolside
swimsuit, shorts, aviators, wedges, bag

For me holidays are a chance to be creative with fashion choices, and this often means I'm not very practical! I just think these wedges would look so cute with the shorts and swimsuit, and if all else fails this bag is big enough to get a towel, book and emergency flip flops inside. I love the frill detail of the swimsuit, i am quite flat chested *boo* so this would give me a more feminine shape and with shorts would look more like a top. 

Look 3: Beach it

My fail safe summer outfit normally consists of a cute top tucked into shorts, and my Beach It outfit is no exception. The lace bandeau makes the outfit a bit more fun and I love these jelly gladiators. 

Look 4: Summer supper
top, belt, sandles, maxi skirt, box clutch

This is probably my favourite outfit of the 5. This is completly different from anything I would normally go for but I can picture this outfit looking great with a tan. The vest is really versatile and would look good with the pink shorts in the look above and the skirt is gorgeous. This outfit would easily take you from Summer Supper to a night out and each item can be worn time and time again in different ways.

Look 5: Beach To Club

For this outfit I took inspiration from the vibrant colours and prints we've seen all over the high street this summer. These Steve Madden wedges are to die for, and do all the talking for this outfit which is why I've teamed them with fairly basic pieces. At first I wanted to put these heels with a black dress but when I started to put the outfit together the black looked far too harsh. The chambray dress from 915 at New Look is a very relaxed piece but paired with the smart clutch and dramatic lashes I think would look effortlessly glamourous.

What did you think of my picks?
It's not too late to enter yourself! The competition ends on friday and you can find the details here at DaisyButter's fabulous blog.

*please note I have linked all the items I can, I compiled these outfits on Monday and already a few items have been removed from the website!*

Instagram Post #1

mcdonalds for dinner tonight, cute sign, outfit of the day, random night at the bingo, sugar mice, grafton waters, grafton waters, cheeky vodka after a stressful day, 5am face, so many clothes but nothing to wear, waiting for my lift to work, pizza hut with the boy, my boyfriend wanting an ootd shot, my ootd, me, been shopping, miserable face, best hat ever modelled by my cheerful brother

I've finally gotten instagram! I've wanted it for so long but it wasn't available on Blackberry App World so I traded my phone in for a HTC until I can get my hands on an iPhone(this is so typical of me to switch phones just for access to one app!) I'm already addicted! Follow me: victoriaterriwalton - I follow back! :)

Hope everybody is having a nice evening!

Cos I'm Something Like A killer

Just a quickie today, I've had these floral trousers from Primark (£5 sale bargain!) for a while now but I just really didnt want to wear them until I had a nice biker jacket to go with them. I love this jacket, I got it 5 days ago and it's not come off my body since. It's from H&M and comes in cream aswell. I'm considering buying the cream one to customise with studs but at the moment I have so many things to save for and so little time. Maybe if it goes into the sale :)
I hope everybodys had a wonderful weekend!

Favourite Tops.

 Top: H&M Lace Tshirt
Bottom: Topshop Tunic

Ever since we've had this awful indescisive weather (so since March?!) I've been stuck in a style rut. I have so many summer clothes I can't wear right now because the day either starts or ends with a dounpour, and I've been finding it so hard to find something to wear in the mornings!
These tops are my favourites right now because I can wear them with my black biker jacket and a cosy scarf when it's cold, or on their own when it's warm.
My boyfriend bought me the H&M top a few weeks ago which I love. It's really hard to get a flattering photo of but it goes with almost anything and is a good wardrobe staple.
The topshop tunic is something I bought on a whim after seeing this post over at Lilys blog. I didn't actually think I would wear this much but it hides a multitude of sins and can be worn with different cardis/jewellery/jackets to mix it up. I'm tempted to get it in other colours as it's only £16 but I don't think I like any quite as much as the grey marl. 

What are your wardrobe staple pieces?

Dove Nourishing Oil Care Leave-In Conditioning & Care Spray

I'm a big fan of Dove as a company for embracing positive body image in their television and magazine articles, however I rarely buy their products. I picked this up in boots the other day after reading Emma's review. 
Nourishing Oil Leave-In Conditioning & Care Spray is made of two different products (one being a hair oil which is another reason I bought this) that work together when you shake the bottle to nourish and refresh tired hair. 
the first few times I used this I used quite a lot because it dosen't actually make your hair feel wet atall, it works better when you just apply a few squirts. it smells bloomin' gorgeous, it's a sweet subtle scent that lasts all day. 
To be entirely honest, I haven't really noticed a huge difference in my hairs condition since using this, it smells nicer and it is possibly a little softer but I've only had it a few days and your hair takes a while to get used to products. 
I did buy this because of the mention of an oil ingredient, however i think if you're looking for an oil you are better off spending more and buying moroccan oil or one of the similar brands. 
I would repurchase this,  its a nice hair treat for when you're skint but it's not groundbreaking for me.
