Worldwide Wardrobe

I always rabbit on about how much I love to travel, but to be quite honest I haven’t done very much.. hold on that is a slight lie as I did when I was much younger,  but since hitting my twenties (I’m now closer to thirty) I just haven’t… which is often down to money which many will relate to.

There is a fabulous competition with Travel Supermarket to create looks for holiday situations across the globe, in their Worldwide Wardrobe Competition.  The tricky part is do them on a £200 budget… I have debated on what I’d create for ages but decided to finally accept the challenge…

Full Moon Party

The shopping list for Full Moon Party look: 

Playsuit – Stacey Palm Tree Neon Burnout Beach Playsuit – £18.00

Bikini Top – Pull&Bear Bikini Top With Fringing – £15.99

Bikini Bottoms – Pull&Bear Bikini Bottoms With Fringing – £15.99

Sandals – Topshop Hipstar Stud Spike White Sandals – £30.00 

Bag – Zara Ethnic Fabric Bucket Bag – £25.99

Sunglasses – H&M Black Sunglasses – £6.99

Earrings – New Look White & Gold Spike Chandelier Earrings – £5.99

Bracelet  Accessorize Geisha Cutesy Charm Bracelets – £8.00

Ring – Accessorize Neptune Metal Gem Ring – £8.00

Nail Polish – Topshop Nails In Beach Shack – £5.00

Grand Total… £139.95 

I have heard tales of the full moon party but have never been.  After doing some research, (talking to my friends that have been and trying to not get jealous) I decided to work a typical beach influence with some style.  I love to encourage colours, so I’ve mainly chosen yellow, pink, white and black but for jewellery there is rustic gold.   The bright colours would look amazing with sun kissed skin and black really makes a tan stand out…

Cocktails in NEw York

For cocktails in New York I decided to ditch the traditional black and go for a SATC inspired ensemble! I feel New York is glamourous so I’ve opted for a vintage inspired film star look.  I think this is glam, glitsy and perfect for sipping cocktails.

The shopping list for Cocktails in New York look:

Dress – Topshop Embellished Shoulder Dress – £110.00

Bag – Coast Shell Clutch – £55.00

Shoes – New Look Patent Panel Platform Sandals – £24.99

Earrings – Dorothy Perkins Cluster Stud Earrings – £4.00

Nail Polish – Topshop Metallic Nails in Heart of Gold – £6.00

Grand Total… £199.99

Sightseeing in paris

The shopping list for Sightseeing in Paris look: 
 Playsuit – Miss Selfridge Acid Wash Playsuit – £35.00
Cardigan – Vila Briannas Knit Cardigan – £56.91
Shoes – Topshop Haiti Mint Peep Toe Sandals – £35.00
Bag – Accessorize Dotty Rucksack – £32.00
Necklace – Topshop Bright Cameo Detail Necklace – £14.00
Hat – Miss Selfridge Woven Bow Trim Floppy – £20.00

Grand Total… £192.91

I know most people will go for shabby chic for sightseeing in Paris, but when I looked into all the things you could see and do, I immediately went for comfort.  If you’re trotting about all day then you need to be relaxed and in easy clothing.  I felt this look is great for travel but still cute enough for exploring the stunning City… visitng Cafe de Flore and going up the Eiffel tower… ah bliss! 

Shopping in London

 The shopping list for Shopping in London look: 

Skirt – River Island Beige Polka Dot Button Through Skirt – £25.00

Top – Miss Selfridge Purple Rollcuff Tshirt – £12.00

Jacket- Topshop Moto Hemme Cropped Denim Jacket – £40.00

Shoes – Miss Selfridge Dainty Cream T-Bar Flat – £25.00

Bag- Accessorize Love London Shopper – £19.00

Necklace – Topshop Twist Cord Multirow Necklace – £16.50

Nails-  Topshop Nails Bright Fluro Pink – £5.00

Umbrella –Topshop Digital Floral Print Umbrella – £16.00

Grand Total… £153.50

I personally cannot shop in heels, if I put an outfit with heels I’d be lying.  When I go shopping I don’t mess about I like to power walk so I get as much in as possible… hence the flats!  I’ve gone for a casual outfit but kept it up to date in terms of fashion and obviously you’ll have noticed the umbrella… well it is the UK!  Best to be safe than sorry! I can imagine going shopping then popping into a tea room for afternoon tea with friends. How delightful! 

Clubbing in Ibiza

The shopping list for Clubbing in Ibiza look:
Top – Motelrocks Bandeau Exposed Zip Crop Top – £15.00 
Shawl – Miss Selfridge Oversized Fringe Crochet Shawl – £35.00
Bottoms – Miss Selfridge Embellished Knicker Shorts – £48.00
Bag – Acessorize Colour Block Large Envelope Clutch – £29.00
Bracelet – Accessorize Aztec Bobble Bracelet – £8.00
Earrings – New Look Pink Triangle Stud Earrings– £2.99
Necklace – Accessorize Neon Bling Statement Necklace – £25.00
Wedges – Steve Madden – Madden Girl Mint Wedges – £35.00
Grand Total… £197.99

This is a bit more daring than other looks but I guess when in Ibiza you just have to!  Following the crowd a touch with the neon but it works so well when sunkissed.  I’ve gone for embellished shorts to create a subtle but eye catching focal point, then added colours onto this and finally finishing with a tassle shawl. This is to keep warm when the sun goes down but really finishes off the look. Space on Sunday? This look checks that box!

I hope you like my Worldwide Wardrobe looks!  I’ve tried my best… but now all I can think about is how I’m not going on holiday and how much I want to! Dammit! 
Hope I’ve inspired you. :o)

    Hey fashion girl, can I ask some advise?
    I'm coming over to the UK for the summer holidays and really want to pick up a cheap, lightweight, thigh/knee length summer jacket (I currently wear a 7 year old Primark turquoise trench coat style with belt).
    Where should I shop once I arrive in the UK, or even better do you have a particular jacket you recommend?
    Thanks love xx
