Hello Lovelies!

This is my entry for the Money Supermarket Passion For Fashion Blogger competition.  The requirements for the competition are to create 5 full outfits for 5 given categories.  These were Party, Casual, Outdoor, First Date and Office Wear.  Seems simple! But, you HAVE to keep each outfit below £200.  Although, if you are a highstreet shopper like me, you'll find it so much fun! You can read more about it here at Money Supermarket..

So let's start!

Dress - River Island - £45.00
Shoes - Red or Dead at Schuh - £70.00
Blazer - H&M - £29.99
Bag - Warehouse - £26.00
Earrings - Oasis - £12.00

I love this outfit, I wish I owned it!  The navy blue of the dress is completely on trend this season, with the colour popping up in every highstreet brand.  From jackets, trousers and dresses there are many ways to incorporate this colour in your autumn winter wardrobe.  The lace panelling also remains on trend with lace maintaining fashion forward status during this coming season.

I've teamed it with some classic pieces which are not only completely on trend, but will be able to remain wardrobe staples for years to come.  The classic Mary Jane pumps and Blazer, are definitely timeless.

The clutch bag incorporates the stud trend which has been popular in previous seasons, but is seeing a bit of a revival in the autumn/winter.  You can go all out with a studded dress or keep it low key with a statement clutch like this.  Studs are also big with shoes this season, Jeffrey Campbell Studded Litas, anyone?  Although if you aren't brave enough to wear shoes like that, like I am, this clutch is perfect!

Snood - H&M - £9.99
Treggings - New Look - £16.99
Jumper - Topshop - £40.00
Chelsea Boots - Chockers Shoes - ON SALE £27.00
Bracelet - Accessorize - £14.00
Bag - H&M - £14.99

'Chelsea' Boots are big on trend this coming season, with an array of colours and designs available, basically everywhere!  I chose these simple black ones from Chockers as they're more versatile for teaming with a lot of different outfits.

As Scotland has had such a rubbish summer, with probably about 2 weeks of sunshine total spread over 3 months, I've anticipated that it's going to be freezing this Autumn/Winter.  So I chose a oversized cosy jumper from topshop.  I love the colours in the knit, the reds and burgundy's mixed with the purple and khaki greens makes this a mixture of just about every on trend colour this season - so for me it's definitely a winner.

The satchel bag is casual but practical.  The treggings are one's I actually own (as of yesterday!) and they are super comfortable and will work well with a lot of different Autumn/Winter looks.  And, I chose the bracelet purely because I thought it was cute!

Shirt - Topshop - £28.00
Bag - Dorothy Perkins - £25.00
Jacket - Miss Selfridge - £55.00
Trousers - H&M - £14.99
Scarf - Dorothy Perkins - £9.50
Wellies - Hunter at Office - ON SALE £60.00

I was so excited to see the Hunter Wellies that were on sale at Office. I have my own in black but love the original Hunter Green, I find them so practical in all of the rain that we get in Scotland so these are a must for me! 
Quilted Jackets are big again this season, as they were last year.  The lusted after brand is Barbour, but I'm pleased to see that there are cheaper alternatives in high street and online stores.  I love the drawstring waist of this one from Miss Selfridge as it will give a beautiful silhouette, which is often lost when it comes to quilted jackets.
Burgundy is one of my favourite colours of this season, so I'm loving the trousers and detailing on the scarf.
I also couldn't resist the tartan shirt, it will be available in a range of clothing styles this season, but I loved the idea of it for the outdoors style.

Dress - Dorothy Perkins - £42.00
Bag - Mango - £64.99
Shoes - Topshop - £65.00
Earrings - Orelia - £10.00
Necklace - Orelia - £10.00

The idea from this came from my ideal first date, which is dinner and drinks/dancing.  This is my favourite outfit that I've put together.  I love the delicateness of the dress with the lace detailing on the shoulders and neckline.  I teamed the soft blush coloured dress with Burgundy shoes and bag to give a pop of colour and style.

The jewellery is from online store orelia that does the most beautiful pieces.  My personal favourite is the rose gold love heart necklace - but that would possibly be a bit inappropriate for a first date!

Blazer - H&M - £34.99
Trousers - Warehouse - £35.00
Shirt - Oasis - £35.00
Shoes - New Look - £19.99
Watch - Oasis - £40.00
Bag - River Island - £35.00

This was the hardest look to put together for me, because I don't work in an office!  So I chose pieces that I would probably wear if I did.  
The teal and deep turquoise colours are big this season, which is why I chose this flowy front shirt. 
Tweed blazers, trousers and pencil skirts I have noticed are readily available in various online stores, in their workwear sections, and I loved the combination of the teal and tweed.
I kept the rest of the look clean and simple, with practical styling, professional enough for the office but still maintaining a fashionable edge.  I'm loving neutrals for this season.

So that's my entry for the Money Supermarket Passion For Fashion Blogger Competition!  I hope you like it!
