Money Supermarket Blogger Competition

Hi Everyone!

I have seen a few posts recently about MoneySupermarkets Passion for Fashion bloggers competition and I wanted to have a go. Each blogger has to create five outfits, one for each Office, Party, Outdoor, Casual and First Date. Each outfit cannot be more than £200 and has to be suited to this Autumn/Winter.

Here are my finished outfits...

For the office look I knew that I wanted to use this jacket from Zara. Its gorgeous and will look great all through Autumn and Winter this year and for years to come. It is Light enough for Autumn when it can still be warm on some days and can be layered up with a heavier coat on top for Winter. I Paired it with black trousers and a white and black vest, I would tuck the vest into the trousers... its a nice change from a shirt for work. I finished the look with a classic style tote bag, studded shoes and some black and gold jewellery.

When I think outdoor i think of running around the woods or fields with my dogs so it needs to be warm and comfortable. I love this big jumper from Topshop, it looks so cosy and warm and for really cold Winter day you could put a few more layers on underneth. I paired it with the thicker leggings that Topshop sell because they will be much warmer than the others and a comfy pair of biker style boots that will keep your feet warm and dry. I chose this Jacket from Newlook because they are very on trend just now and i think it finishes off the outfit nicely. Lastly a warm knitted scarf and gloves :)

Autumn can be a funny month with some days still being warm so I like to wear layers so i can add more the further into Winter we get. I love this outfit, its sweet and girly but still very comfortable and stylish for a day of shopping. I chose a cream lace peplum top to go with an oversized fluffy grey cardigan and burgundy jeans. With that i have a slouchy bag from newlook and really sweet tassel flats. To finish the outfit off I picked a collar necklace from Miss Selfridge and a little charm set also from Miss Selfridge.

First Date
I wanted the first date outfit to be dressy but casual because sometimes your not sure where your going. I paired a gorgeous sequin top from river island with blue skinny jeans and a mustard colour blazer to cover up on autumn nights. I finished the outfit with leopard print heels, a sequin clutch and spike and cross bracelets.

Newlook Blue Skinny Jeans - £27.99

I think that Autumn Winter is when you can go OTT when it come to embellishment and I have done that with this outfit. I really like how this look its made up of the two piece top and skirt instead of just a dress. Because there is so much going on with the outfit its self i kept the shoes simple with a black heeled sandal from Zara. Again because the outfit is very busy a necklace would look lost against the top so i went for a large filigree ring and finished the look with a glitter clutch.
Miss Selfridge Embellished Top - £49
Miss Selfridge Embellished Skirt - £65
Zara Heeled Sandals - £39.99
