I tried to combine my own style with styles I've seen around recently. I've never traveled far other than France when I was around 13 but I'd love to travel more, New York, Paris and London are definitely a must! Here are my entries -
I based the outfit around some of my favourites pieces I've seen around in the past couple of weeks, printed trousers are everywhere! I adore them but colours scare me so Black and White was perfect, I paired them with a gorgeous Zara shirt, which I love the bib detail on. I wanted to keep the outfit smart/casual with Gold accessories, New Look's are great at the moment! My favourite item is the Zara Basic Messenger bag, which I've been lusting after for weeks. I much prefer it over a clutch as it has a strap but the strap can come off if you wanted to hold it. I adore that the bag closes by rolling up, very unique. I think the outfit is perfect for cocktails as it's not too dressy but it works really well, perfect for New York.
I wanted to keep this outfit pretty casual, jeans and a shirt are pretty much a staple for me and I love the neon accent on the shirt. I wasn't sure if neon nails were too much but then I thought what the hell, the more the merrier! I wasn't sure what shoes to add until I saw a pair nude Melissa's by Queen V, I thought they'd be perfect for a long day of shopping and the Gold accents on the front would set off any outfit. A huge bag is essential for shopping and the Zara city bag fits the bill great. I'm not really a fan of accessories other than a statement watch, I also wanted to keep the make-up quite muted. I'd wear a simple face of foundation with blush, mascara and nude lips.
I wanted to keep this outfit quite comfortable as I'm guessing Paris is always busy and what's more comfortable than a midi and converse (the jacket is purely because I'm always cold!) I tried on a midi recently and fell in love but I thought it looked quite plain, which is why I chose such a statement necklace and a red satchel. The satchel is also perfect for all the things I'd end up carrying around i.e camera, phone, e-reader etc. Sunglasses are a must for me because sun gives me the WORST headaches and I think they complete the outfit perfectly too.
I want to keep this outfit really fun so I knew straightway I wanted something Red! Red is definitely my favourite colour and to me, it just says FUN! I adore the top, to be honest I think I'd be scared to wear a crop top really but I love that it covers the stomach with the fringe, the shorts will help too! The rest of the outfit I wanted to keep pretty simple as I think the top is striking enough, I chose Black and Gold as they're very classic colours and match anything. My favourite part of the whole outfit has to be the moon ring from Dixi, how adorable and it pretty perfect for a full moon party!
