So I was recently contacted by the lovely Nhuc Tran owner of online boutique China Doll Boutique to take part in their blogger competition to celebrate the launch of the new website last week. 
The idea is that you pick a China Doll Boutique item, which I then have to style an outfit around up to the value of £200 and the shortlisted 15 favourites will be up for vote on facebook and the winner wins the WHOLE outfit! If you want to know more about the competition you can do so via the website here.

Untitled #60

1. China Doll Boutique - Sasha Monochrome Spot Top - £10
2. American Apparel - Shiny nylon tricot leggings in serpent - £34
3. H&M - Dusty pink bowler hat - £7.99
4. River Island - Eyelash oversized cardigan in black - £38
5. Topshop - Katz cut out strap shoe - £75
7. Topshop - Carved rose pearl bracelet - £5

TOTAL = £174.99 

With a £200 maximum budget I was in my element to find my most coveted items about at the moment online and on the high street. I knew as soon as I saw the top I wanted it, so if I don't win the competition I will certainly be purchasing it after! It's bang on trend as monochrome and polkadots are everywhere at the moment, the lightweight fit makes it a day to night wear during the summer too! 

The monochrome and neon combination has had huge success on the catwalks so I want in, wearing this with some shiny serpent green american apparel leggings is my absolute dream, an outfit that can be worn to lounge, layer or even go out in! Luckily the top is so versatile I'd love to staple it into my wardrobe! Seeing as it's nearly summer, I'm getting pink vibes again and this pale pink bowler hat is a perfect adornment and lovely colour clash with the leggings!
If I were to layer it in the cooler temperatures I would definitely be using the black eyelash cardigan from River Island as it looks super cosy and I love the eyelash texture, usually seen on lingerie it gives it that ultra feminine feel! I'm sure if you're a regular reader of my blog you've seen these Topshop cut out strap shoes on many a wishlist, at £75 they are pretty expensive but worn with this outfit they are extremely worth it! The pale blue lace socks add extra texture to the shoes and look cute and girly! I'm really into clashing colours at the moment, bright pastels are a definite for me this summer! Last but not least this simple accessory from Topshop, the rose in the bracelet picks out the pale pink in the hat and the pearls add a whimsical touch to this outfit. 

What do you think? I really hope I win, I've never been so excited for a competition!

    I like the top em! although when I was trying boots on in topshop I did try those ones on and the t bar and buckle didn't sit right on my foot :( I don't know if its because I have skinny feet or if they just fit like that but it did put me off. Have you seen the cut out buckle ones and they are only £45 i think from topshop? They are quite chunky but you did like my ones so you may like these ones too?! x
