phase eight blogger competition

A few days ago, I was contacted by the lovely people at phase eight about a competition they are currently running. The aim is to create a holiday item wishlist for a chance to win a £250 giftcard, bonus! Now phase eight isn't a shop I would usually go in, unless I was shopping for a special occasion but once I browsed the website I soon realised they had a lot of cute less formal pieces too!

phase eight blogger competition

Firstly I chose the variegated stripe maxi dress (1), something about it just shone out when I was browsing the website. I think it's the colours, the first thing that I thought of was actually flamenco dancers in Spain..I think I had holiday on the brain a bit too much! Also, I think red is a lovely colour to wear with a tan. Next I chose the striped cotton fit and flare dress (2). I absolutely love this style of dress as it is so flattering for all shapes. The colours also remind me of the seaside too..I've noticed a slight stripe theme going on here ha. I then moved onto footwear as nothing screams summer or a holiday more than a wedge. I chose millie-rose sandal (3) as tan is a colour that will go with everything and I actually think they will go with most of the outfits I have chosen here. I love a blouse, especially tucked in so I chose the diana lace collar blouse (4) as you can just chuck it on and keep jewellery to a minimum as it kind of speaks for itself. Last but not least is my staple holiday item..denim shorts! I picked the lexi shorts (5) as they are the kind of denim that will go with everything and are not too short either.

If you are a blogger and would like to enter, all of the details are here. You need to be quick though as you only have until Monday 29th July to enter!
Good luck!
