Missguided Social Style Competition

The ladies over at Missguided have launched a Bloggers Social Style competition, where 11 bloggers have to style outfits from the Missguided collection for an up coming social event they will be attending this summer. I've decided to style an outfit for the summer jazz concert and picnic I'll be attending in a few weeks time.

Even though red is not my usual colour, I really, really love this red dress. It is so simple and plain, and though it comes in other, more neutral colours (as well as a few other cuts) the bright colour will make it the perfect piece to dress up the outfit for the concert, but still plain enough to work as a base. The concert is in the evening so the dress won't look bad if I have to throw a cardigan or tailored jacket over it.

The hat is the little piece of whimsical fun I wanted to add to the outfit. As the concert is a casual evening affair in a marque, I could easily have gone for a sparkly hairband or a bare head, but this hat is just so cute, summery and fun!

Though I usually go for black shoes, for an evening, summery look they'd be a bit harsh with a red dress, so I've gone for these lovely cream wedges that look super comfortable! Heels are a no go because I'll have to do a lot of walking on grass...

Finally, because I find it practically impossible to put an outfit together without including something at least a little bit dark, so I'd paint my nails with this lovely black and gold nail polish, fingers and toes!


You can vote for me in the competition by liking my entry on the Missguided Facebook page! (P.S. If I win Missguided will give me £20 to spend in their store to give away to my lovely readers!)
