Moneysupermarket.com are once again asking bloggers to show their 'passion for fashion' by putting together 3 summer outfits for under £200 a pop. So, not one to shirk a challenge, here are my offerings, I'd love to know what you think :)
The first category is casual. For me summer casual wear is all about being comfortable hence the comfy Dr Marten-esque flats & item-of-the-moment: a pair of dungarees. Perfect for a festival or just a lazy summer's day.
Casual outfit cost: sunglasses - Topshop £16 // hat - ASOS £12 // dungarees - Boohoo £25 // nail varnish - Topshop £5 // satchel - Boohoo £25 // socks - ASOS £4 // flats - Boohoo £20 // t-shirt - ASOS £18
The second category was holiday wear, for me that's long days spent at the beach or pool enjoying some much needed sunshine. My holiday essentials include suncream (of course!) & a book, I chose The Great Gatsby as I read it earlier this year & loved it. I also love bright colours & mixing patterns in the summer - hence the mismatched bikini - anything fun goes!
Holiday outfit cost: towel - Next £14 // sunglasses - Boohoo £10 // Nivea suncream set - Boots £18.99 // cover-up - ASOS £25 // bikini top - ASOS £16 // bikini bottoms - ASOS £12 // sandals - Boohoo £22 // book - Amazon £12.97 // large bag - Boohoo £20
Aaaaand last but not least: party! For this category I really wanted to channel the 60s looks seen on the Marc Jacobs & Louis Vuitton SS13 catwalks. I included the Prada-esque sunglasses because I think they're fabulous & if you're going to an evening 'do it might still be light & therefore necessitate sunglasses (I had to fit them in somehow!)
Party outfit cost: headband - Topshop £7.50 // dress - Topshop £28 // sunglasses - Boohoo £6 // hair inspiration from Perrie Edwards // clutch bag - ASOS £25 // perspex heeled shoes - ASOS £40
