Worldwide Wardrobe Competition

Yet another fantastic competition from Travel Supermarket - I love these! I was nominated by Mia to take part in this one. This time we have to put together five outfits under £200 for five different activities in some exotic locations across the globe. I've had a major travel bug at the moment (all will become clear in a later post) and this is not helping!

The five scenarios are:
Full Moon Party in Thailand
Cocktails in New York
Sightseeing in Paris
Clubbing in Ibiza
Shopping in London

The winner of each scenario receives the money to buy their outfit and wins a trip to the destination - I'm not going to turn that chance down! I decided not to do Ibiza as right now it's not really my kind of holiday, I'm sure I'll go at some point I just think it's a bit of a more grown up clubbing holiday. Here goes...

Top - Skirt - Necklace - Sunglasses - Nail Polish - Headband - Shoes
After investigating the Full Moon party a bit further I noticed that it seemed to be very neon, so I went for a neon meets pastels meets street princess kind of look (good description there, Charlotte). The bralet from Topshop was the perfect combination of darker purples with hints of neon green which I decided to bring out with the metallic green skater skirt - perfect for partying. I decided I wanted a statement necklace that was quite plain so went for this chunky silver chain to match the silvery sandals and white sunglasses. Top it off with a pastel flower crown (in keeping with the colour palette obviously) and some very bright polish to tie it all in and you're set to party!

Shorts - Cami - Blazer - Sunglasses - Shoes
To me, New York is the home of sophisticated simplicity. I decided I wanted some sharp tailoring and was originally intending on getting a matching short suit until I found this gorgeous boxy blazer from River Island which went with my chosen shorts perfectly. Paired with a plain white cami to keep it simple, but still looking pulled together, white cat eye sunglasses and these beautiful heels from Zara I think it's an outfit worthy of the New York streets.

Playsuit - Top - Bag - Shoes
For Paris I wanted to keep it quite simple, mostly out of comfort. I like to be comfortable when I'm out, especially if I'm spending the day on foot hence the Toms - they really are some of the comfiest shoes I've worn. The paisley playsuit and textured crop top keeps it chic and the double pocket satchel would be super handy for keeping my camera and other travel essentials in.

Jeans - Kimono - Top - Bag - Shoes
The most expensive of my four outfits, and possibly my favourite. When I'm shopping I like to have something comfortable on my feet and these gorgeous mint Vans were an easy choice. I'm currently after a turquoise pair but these are starting to steal my eye a bit more than I had intended... A plain top and jeans are my usual choice for shopping as it comes in very handy when trying things on, jeans go with most tops and a plain white top will go with most bottoms. The embroidered detail on the top makes it a little bit more fancy than a standard top. Layers are also important for me, it can be very warm in shops but not so warm on the street, so this kimono was a perfect choice. It adds a burst of colour to the outfit while also being the perfect cover up. And of course, what shopping trip is complete without the Zara shopper?
