Hi everyone! Hope all is well and everyone's enjoying the lovely hot weather.
Couple of days ago Phase Eight contacted me to let me know about a competition they are having for summer. Its very simple, all you have to do is style 5 holiday pieces from Phase Eight. Thats not all, if you enter the competition you are in the chance to win £250 to spend at Phase eight!!
To be honest it was quite difficult to pick just 5 pieces because there's so many pretty things. So after about a days browsing and then picking and non picking items I finally finalised my 5 picks. (phew!! it was hard work)
Now I know when you say Phase Eight quite a few people think of weddings because I think they are known for their wedding boutique. But they do some amazing casual collections and I love their dresses. So naturally my 5 picks mainly consist of dresses surprise! surprise!!!
My 5 Phase eight holiday pieces
Basic black maxi dress is a summer must have. I love the simplicity of this dress, the deep v-neck and the peep hole on the back give this simple dress a bit of a twist. This is one of those dresses that can be styled in so many different ways. Versatility is a massive buying factor for me and with this dress you will definitely be packing less clothes. If it's for holiday dinner I will wear this dress with a pair of gold jewelled sandals to go with the gold detachable belt and keep things very simple.
If I'm hitting the shops while on holiday or going out for a meal during the day, I'll throw on a denim cropped jacket, straw trilby and a little fringed bag to give it a bit of a bohemian twist. You can even turn this dress into a cocktail dress with a pair of heels, statement jewellery and a clutch. EASY!!
Another maxi dress! This time I have opted for this Orange waterfall hem dress. Nothing says summer holidays like this Orange and it is bound to put you in a good mood whatever the weather is (that is if you're stuck in the UK) Again a simple dress that can be styled in many ways. I will prolly keep it simple as the colour and the detailing of this dress is quite strong. Gold jewellery or gold shoes will make this colour pop even more.
Promise this is the last dress but I can't help that Phase Eight got some amazing dresses. This striped shirt dress covers so many trends this summer. Monochrome trend - check, Stripes - check, shirt dress - check. How can you not add this dress to your holiday pick?? This can even be a cover up for the beach and you can unbutton couple of buttons to show some flesh (why not??)
Promised you that was the last dress. As difficult as it was to break away from all the lovely dresses I came across this pretty top. When picking my holiday essentials I always go for comfort, rather than sticking to fashion and trends especially with tops. So this top is great to break away from my simple vest top addiction. It's still simple but the colour and the metallic embellishment gives any simple look a dressed up feel.
You have to add a scarf to your holiday pick list. A scarf is my favourite accessory on holiday as I use it in different ways. This scarf caught my eye for the obvious reasons, I'm a sucker for cobalt blue. When its a bit chilly in the evenings I use it as pashmina to just drape around my shoulders or add a bit of colour to a plain top or dress or as a cover up when I'm heading to the beach.
So there we go! thats my 5 holiday pieces from Phase Eight. It's been tough cutting it down to just 5 pieces but I have done it:)
