Ted Baker Blogger Competition


I rarely enter competitions like this, unless it is something that I'm 100% interested in. The Ted Baker Spring/Summer Blogger Competition just happens to be one of those; therefore I was so pleased to be asked to take part. 

If you would like to take part (which I fully recommend as there are some gorgeous pieces to put together) then all you have to do is:

Pick three of your favourite items, post the look on your blog and explain why you chose what you did and where you would wear it. Oh and don't forget to tweet the link to @ted_baker with the hash tag #tedss13 so that Ted can have a look!

After having a lovely browse of the site I found my three favourite things, here is my look!


Gojji Orchid Print Maxi Dress, Bumblebee Necklace, Embossed Exotic Shopper














I'm rather smitten with the Gojji Orchid Print Maxi Dress, being rather short myself I tend to shy away from these yet I would be brave and go for it if I owned this as it is a gorgeous item of clothing. I love Orchids and this design really reminds me of an oriental theme which immediately captures my interest.

I thought the Bumblebee Necklace would really complement this dress as it isn't too bold, I think it would add a nice touch of detail to the neckline whilst not taking anything away from the dress. Plus, I have a huge soft spot for bumblebees; they're awesome little guys which we all should be looking after a lot more, along with our precious honeybees.

Lastly I added a nice big bag, with my choice being the Embossed Exotic Shopper. This is available in a number of colours with my favourite being in 'tan', I personally think this is the nicest colour to go with the dress too which is lucky! I like a big bag as I tend to carry a lot around with me, of course if I could have any bag to go with this dress I would have Hermione’s beaded magic bag; I think that is a bit too much to ask for though.

This outfit would be perfect for a nice day out when the sun is shining, whether that is to a nice picnic or out to a summer funfair. I also think that it could be made slightly more edgy whilst keeping the feminine aspect by adding a simple black leather jacket.
