Off To Ibiza: Daisy Butter Newlook Comp

Over at Daisy Butter I spotted this amazing competition in collaboration with Newlook. I love creating and styling outfits so I had to take part. Here was the brief:
"Imagine you are going to Ibiza for a long weekend. Create a post on your blog stating which items from the New Look store you would wear to complete each of the following outfits on your holiday. You have 5 outfits for 5 occasions, so which items would you wear and why? 
Choose from: Travel Style, Poolside, Beach It, Sunset Supper, Beach to Club."

So I imagined I was off to Ibiza and came up with these 5 outfits:

|| Jeggings || T-Shirt || Scarf || Bag || Shoes || Cardi || 

Travel day. You may have an early flight or the weather at home may be miserable, either way its probably going to be cold so its always a good idea to layer. You choose light weight clothing like this cardi, as its not bulky and can be packed away easily. Its also quite cold on the plane and you don't want chilly legs, so you wear jeggings. Only crazy celebrities like VB wear heels on an aeroplane, so flats are the way forward. You chose these grey slipper shoes for ultimate comfort.The bag is big enough to fit all your in-flight essentials and any duty free you may pick up.

|| Sunglasses || Swimsuit || Bracelet || Headband || Wedges ||

A day by the pool. Your staying at a chic hotel and want to look stylish when lounging by the pool. The cat-eye glasses add retro glamour while the cut out swimsuit shows off your curves. The chain bracelet picks up on the chain detail in the swimsuit and they tie in together perfectly. The fishtail headband and the wedges complete the look. 

A day at the beach and you decide to embody the Ibiza hippie style. The lace crop top and distressed shorts along with the ombre bikini are bang on trend and give off the hippie relaxed vibe. The elephant bracelet adds a little quirky detail to the outfit. 

|| Earrings || Shoes || Dress || Bag || Ring ||

Sunset Supper and cocktails. You choose a white bird print dress to compliment the tan you have acquired after the last two days sunbathing. The feather earring tie in with the bird print and the perspex heeled shoes add a little twist to the feminine feel of the outfit. 

|| Bikini TopBottoms || Skirt || Necklace || Earrings || Shoes ||

Your last day. You decide to make the most of it by going straight from the beach to the club. This gorgeous embellished bikini will look great at either locations. To dress up the outfit you add these amazing accessories and a pair of dazzling wedges. 

I really enjoyed this competition and I have fallen in love with every outfit I created. Newlook have an amazing range on their website and I loved picking my favourite pieces and turning them into an outfit. My absolute favourites are the travel day and beach to club. They are both so wearable yet so stylish in different ways.

What do you think of my outfits? Have you entered the competition? If you have, leave your link, I would love to take a look at your entry.
