Hello everyone! Now I don't usually partake in blogger competitions but this is one I couldn't resist. The lovely ladies at Etail PR have come together with In Love With Fashion to offer us bloggers a £200 voucher to win, all we have to do is create a wishlist and send in our entries. You can find the competition here. Now I usually think competition entry posts don't benefit the reader, but with this one I went that little extra mile and created 3 wishlists, each under their own category just so it would be a little more interesting to read. I've picked out some lovely pieces which are currently online so if you spy something you like then just click the link below and it will take you to the item. In Love with Fashion have some amazing on trend pieces and they are super affordable too. Firstly lets start with neon...
Neon has been hitting the catwalks in LFW and is being worn by fashion lovers around. Perfect for spring and summer neon is definitley going to be big this year. As England is only partial to a bit of sunshine during these months I've added a neon knit to the wishlist. Whose to say we can't join in on the fun even when the sun isn't around? I've also added a lovely green top which would look perfect with bleached jeans, topped with this Barry M yellow neon nail paint, which can also be found on ILWF. Neon is the perfect way to brighten up a dull outfit.
Next up is my favourite trend, tie dye. I just love the effortless bohemian/hippy looks you can create with tie-dye. Paired with long beachy waves or a classic topknot, tie-dye is the perfect way for the cool summer look. I'll admit I did struggle to select only a couple of items for the wishlist as I wanted it all! I adored the wrap dress as soon as I saw it. I think this would be perfect for the beach or even a summers walk through the park worn with sandals and a straw bag. I then spotted this top, I love the blue colour used and the use of subtle white tie-dye. I think this would be great paired with levis and converse for the 'girl next door' look or toughened up with some statement jewellery. Lastly I added this gorgeous split leg maxi, this would be perfect for evening occasions and the dress itself is a statement so I would just keep the accessories worn with this minimal.

Lastly I couldn't resist creating a monochrome wishlist. Now this trend is very 'me' as all i tend to wear is black during the winter months. Even though it is nearly spring, I live in England so it still feels like the middle of winter and to me monochrome is still very wearable. I tend to avoid darker colours when the suns out but I think these pieces are perfect for the current weather. Now I tend to either wear the black, or white but monochrome mixes the two which is all very new to me. I wasn't keen on this trend at first but since looking through ILWF I've put together a wishlist of some pieces which I am really loving. The jumper would be perfect paired with disco pants or jeans and black boots or converse, as well as the 'In Vogue we trust' tee as I thought it was such a simple yet lovely item. Next up is a lovely collar dress, I think this would be perfect for warmer days with sandals, or even paired with tights for an evening look/work outfit. It's a lovely versatile piece. Lastly, a necessity for every womans wardrobe -classic black boots. They go with almost everything and keep your feet warm on the cooler days as well as making you look uber stylish.
And there you have it! Those are my wishlists for the ILWF blogger competition, I would love to win! Wish me luck :) What are your favourite pieces from the ones I've mentioned? Are you a fan of the trends?
