UniqueLoveStyle #PassionForFashion2 Entry


When I heard about the #PassionForFashion challenge I knew I wanted to test my adoration for style and of course affordability! 
We are to create an outfit for under £200 for each of these categories; casual wear, party wear and holiday wear. Here are my attempts!

Outfit #1 - Casual Wear

Personally my style is usually vintage inspired and very feminine; I love all things lace and soft feeling and I adore this seasons trends of pastels and floral! This has been a big part of my casual wear outfit creation personally I'm a fan of wearing dresses and when the weather is warmer it's even more a better excuse to wear one! I found this stunning dusky pink peter pan collared dress, which is a complete bargain from George @ Asda! I've then teamed it up with a soft pastel embellished top/cardigan that can be draped over the top depending on the weather from Vero Moda. To match with the lace collar detailing from the dress I saw these beautiful laced boots that really make it more of a stand out I think! But they look so fun and girly at a reasonable price too. As for the accessories I like the more cute and dainty styles nothing too heavy so that there isn't too much going on with the outfit overall, but a nice blend in total; a floral detailed necklace and cute studs make it pretty as a picture! Lastly I spotted this cute warehouse bag, personally I feel for a casual look/day it is a great size and style too, great for holding or putting it over your shoulder keeping in all your essentials for the day ahead!

Outfit #2 - Party wear

I always get excited when it comes to glamming myself up for a party and this is an outfit that really reflects my passion for vintage yet still very subtle for an evening out! I've teamed up this stunning collared dress from New Look with a statement black cardigan just so there can be something to drape the shoulders depending on the weather and where the party is. If like me you adore a perfect vintage find from such places as Ebay and Etsy I accessorize this outfit with a 60s chic handbag and comfortable flat colour block shoes because as we dance the night away, we just want our feet to feel comfy!

Outfit #3 - Beach/Holiday wear

The last outfit I put together is mainly for beach/holiday wear. These pieces can be a mix and match with pretty pastels perfect for the season; I simply adored the powder blue flat sandals from Asos which I knew would be perfect when walking and seeing the sights. If it does get much warmer the shorts I chose are a denim style which also appear quite loose too, that is so much comfortable and doesn't cling to the skin. My favourite pick is the ever so retro peplum top, that is a very flattering style for many shapes; This can be worn over the top of the bikini I have chosen or just with the pretty pastel blue skinny leg jeans from New look and sandals. For that added protection from the heat the Roxy hat really stood out to me with the cute moustache picture it's key not just to feel great in what you wear but to keep yourself protected too!
