New Look #HolidayHop Competition

DaisyButter has collaborated with New Look offering a chance to win £400 of clothes! You basically have to create 5 outfits that would be suitable for a long weekend in Ibiza -
"Imagine you are going to Ibiza for a long weekend. Create a post on your blog stating which items from the New Look store you would wear to complete each of the following outfits on your holiday. You have 5 outfits for 5 occasions, so which items would you wear and why?"
I would definitely love to be heading for a mini break in Ibiza this bank holiday weekend, wouldn't you? I know I've only just got back from 2 months in paradise, but you can never have enough holidays!! :P A lot of you will know by now how fussy I am with fashion and bearing in mind that if I was really off to Ibiza for a long weekend I'd only take a tiny suitcase, I've created 5 simple but classic outfits (with a twist)!
I've done a lot of travelling on planes over the last couple of years and I can say with complete conviction that it is not anywhere near my favourite thing to do. I think a short flight to Ibiza would be much more pleasant than the 4 or so flights and 20+ hours of travelling that I'm used to - but if one thing is for sure it's that I love to be super comfy when travelling. Layers are important because planes are always freezing and, of course, it will be hot upon landing in Ibiza. I love to have something comfy on my feet and these navy blue Hi-Tops are perfect, a watch is also super important for making sure you're at the right place for the right time - don't want to miss that flight! I chose the leggings because I love the funky print, it jazzes up an otherwise plain outfit - also they're fleece, so uber comfy!

I'm not a huge fan on going for a dip in the swimming pool, I'd much rather muck about in the sea. If I'm poolside I'll usually stretch out on a comfy sun lounger in the shade and get stuck in to a good book. I've been a huge fan of crocheted items this summer and I think this little crop to is just too adorable! And of course I'm keeping it on-trend with the studded shorts :)

The bikini that I spent most of my summer running around in was actually from New Look, but I didn't want to choose the same one, so I went for this bright blue striped number - I really love the frill detail on the bottoms. I chose accessories to match the colour scheme of reds and blues and popped the super cute pink trilby into the outfit too - if I was only in Ibiza for a short break, chances are I'd be spending every minute out in the sun and I know from experience that sunstroke is not a fun way to spend a holiday! I love sunnies in this classic frame shape and tortoiseshell print.

I've been in love with the maxi dress this summer, and this pretty purple number is no exception, especially when paired with colour matched accessories and to-die-for Steve Madden wedges! I can't say no to a sparkly headband to keep my hair out of the way when I'm enjoying a yummy supper either. I chose a pretty pink nail polish for a pop of bright colour and added an adorable straw bag to hold my money, phone and lipgloss!

I can't stay away from anything floral and girly - which is what I love so much about this outfit. The cut out sides on the dress add that holiday feel to the outfit (perfect for showing off a new glowing tan!) and the golden accessories add a little touch of bling that's perfect for heading to the club!

What do you think of my five outfits? What would you take on a short break to Ibiza? ♥

If you'd like to enter the competition too, there's a few days left - head to DaisyButter here!

  2. Love the post! I got the email about this too... It started "Hi Fay, my girlfriend loves your blog *link* and I'd like to invite you etc" but the link wasn't even to my blog!!! Then half an hour I got an email, "sorry about that, I messed up with your blog, but I'd love to see your thoughts on the competition!"

    Couldn't bring myself to enter after that, but the whole idea behind the competition is great isn't it? I love your ideas! I have a cropped crochet top really similar to the one you picked!

    1. Thank you! I really want that crochet top!! I got the same two emails as well. I was a little narfed off at first, but I already know that whenever these companies write and say stuff like "I love your blog", they're usually just doing it to butter you up. I sent him a polite but firm email saying that I understood that he had a busy schedule and couldn't send all of the email individually - but that perhaps in the interest of PR/blogger relations it would be good to *try* to visit their blog and make an earnest comment, rather than an outright lie! xx
