I know I said I was trying a spending ban, but that didn't work out. I saw this awesome kenzo-esque top while wandering round H&M and couldn't resist! The print is so cool and the fabric is so great.Follow my blog with Bloglovin

When I saw Olivia's amazing competition, I thought 'a chance to win something by screen shopping and dreaming up outfits? Hells to the yes!'. I thought I'd go with things I'd wear myself, and include clothes that are on my current 'wishlist'.
Hat £28 Bikini Top/Bottoms £25 Skirt £48 Sandals £48 Nail Varnish £3.45 Sunglasses £16 Top £6 = £174.45
I think this outfit is strangely the most put-together look out of the three. I believe that when you go to the beach you should never look any less cooler than normal, so I went with quite a glamorous look with the heeled sandals and full skirt. The sunglasses and hat are mainly there for practicality - a girl can't get burnt while looking glam! The sunglasses are really cool, as they've got a slightly modern twist on the cat eye trend. I find high waisted bikinis look so much nicer than normal ones, and just love this simple black one. The bra can be worn under the top - as it's slightly sheer, and the bottoms can be worn under the skirt without looking odd, because of the skirt's high waisted fit.
For this outfit, I went for the 'cool girl, summer in london' kinda thing. I wanted to keep everything simple, with a muted colour palette. But then change things up a little with a dungaree dress instead of shorts, and supergas instead of converse. I love/really want this bag, as I imagine it being one of those bags you can chuck the kitchen sink into and go without any faff.
To be honest, I'm not really into wearing dresses for going out/parties, although I love getting dressed up. I think the suit is really cool and elegant, then kept things simple with the white top again. As most of this outfit is quite subtle, I put in these awesome SILVER shoes which aren't too high so comfy enough to wear through the night. I then added the see-through clutch because I really like the idea of it, and lets be honest if you can't wear a transparent clutch to a night out when can you where one?
I hope you guys enjoyed my outfits as much as I had making them!
