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?
