I discovered the other day that Next is currently hosting a competition on this lovely blog called Glitz & Grime and of course I had to enter!
You can win £500 worth of Next clothes – a whole new summer wardrobe!
If I had that £500 of Next vouchers in my hand right now I would spend it on some lovely clothes that I could impress the capital of fashion with – Paris!
Yes, I am going to wonderful Paris in no more than 11 days, and while walking on the streets of this city I want to look sophisticated and chic – like a real Parisian lady.
I would invest in something trendy enough to wear amongst all the fashionistas on the famous shopping street Champs Élysées, but it would still have to be sophisticated enough to wear in the Louvre, and at the same time it needs to be an outfit that is casual enough to wear while spending time in the park while enjoying a view the Eiffel Tower.
I have browsed Next’s new Summer collections, and I have come up with 2 different styles I would have invested in for my Paris trip if I had those £500 in my hand right now. My first style screams Paris; the typical blue and red, the stripes, the block colours… Very retro.
My second outfit is a more romantic style that I would have loved to wear in the cafés of Paris while drinking a café au lait and munching on some croissants. A romantic dress for a romantic time. I actually fell in love with this dress the second I saw it, and since the dress has such a bold pattern I thought it would go great with some more neutral accessories of natural materials.
I love both of these outfits, but perhaps you have a favourite? Tell me which one J And also, don’t forget to enter the Next competition on Glitz & Grime if you want the chance to win a new summer wardrobe.
