Ibiza Star #holidayhop


Michelle from her blog, Daisybutter has the most amazing competition collaboration with New Look. And for this competition you must make 5 outfits for a long weekend to Ibiza! And this is all you have to do to win up to £400 of summer clothing items! Check out this link to her blog if you want to find out more about it and enter.
I obviously, am a big fan of competitions like this and outfit building in general! This was the brief given, and these are my outfits for it!

"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?"

On route to Ibiza, I'd want to go in style! I decided to go for a comfortable rocky look here, pairing up PU contrast leggings with a printed tee and leopard print pumps to match! I'm always a little cold on the plane so a cool jacket is always a great idea, and I decided to go for this mink coloured biker jacket to add that rocky edge as well as thinking comfortably. Travelling in complete style! Always accessorise, I chose a simple long necklace to go with it, and of course a bag you couldn't lose in an airport because of it's outstanding leopard print!

The first day is always the most exciting! You get to pull out your best bikini from your leopard print luggage bag and head straight down to the pool to enjoy your first day of relaxing out in sunny Ibiza! My best bikini would be this beautiful Zig-Zag Bandeau with detachable straps for them unwanted tan lines! After soaking up the sun for a little bit, you can't miss out the first dip in the pool, saving your hair from all the trouble of entanglement I'd tie it up with a statement hair band like this spiked one and when I'm heading to the pool bar for some drinks, I'd cover up with this coral embellished kaftan, perfectly contrasting with the bold printed bikini. A relaxing poolside experience success!

Who wouldn't hit the beach on an amazing long weekend to Ibiza!? Anyone who didn't would be more than just a little bit silly! I'd slip into another one of my best bikinis, bright and beautiful just like the weather to soak up even more sun! I'm a massive fan of the beach, I prefer it more to the pool, so I always make sure I'd packed my best and biggest tote bag to throw in my towel, sun cream and holiday book! This bag would be perfect, with material suitable for beach durability and repelling sand away from your valuables. I'd wear this orange maxi over my bright blue and orange bikini and multi-coloured sandals to break away from the bright orange, then I'd be ready to soak up some more sun and of course, take a little adventurous ride on the banana boat! Who wouldn't? I love being bright and cold on holiday, it's possibly the only time most of us get away with wearing things like this!

The sun setting on the ocean, and a little restaurant on the beach... When I think sunset supper, I think the sort of holiday date you'd have with your boyfriend and if I was taking a trip to Ibiza I'd love to share it with him. And to impress him on a sunset dinner by the beach, I'd wear a flattering dress like this, with that amazing blue colour popping out to make this dress a statement piece. I'd doll this up with some blue pop coloured wedges, and with the cork wedge and clutch bag's subtle stone colour, it breaks the colour up a little bit so that bright blue isn't so harsh. It's a perfect evening outfit that flatters the figure, and comfortably sexy on a cool Ibiza evening, and maybe even for a romantic evening walk on the beach...

Party all day and party all night! My ideal final day in Ibiza making the most of the party atmosphere, I think this outfit as the 24 hour outfit. (Maybe not quite 24...) And if I were going from beach to club I think this outfit fits the bill just perfectly! I always loved monokinis, but as always it's the tan lines that I'm worried about but imagining this is my last Ibiza party night I wouldn't mind too much! I'd wear it with a sip hem skirt like this one, adding that little bit of fun paired up with the monokini. And you can't forget a pair of mid-heel wedges suitable for walking and dancing! I'd want to style up my beach hair with a little something if I was heading straight out onto the strip so this hair feather would really work a boho look along with the dip hem and beach hair waves. A over the body bag to fit all the essentials and for a little security and I'd be ready for my last  the day and night in Ibiza!

I really love all the outfits I've created and I've had so much fun making them. It took me ages to draw my little mannequin, and it doesn't have hands because I am so terrible at drawing them! I think out of all my outfits, my Travel Style and Poolside outfits are my two best and most likely to wear.

Which are your faves and will you be entering Michelle's amazing competition!?
