The Winter Style Challenge with Debenhams

For me one of the best ways to get style inspiration is to look at mood boards but I'd never thought about doing one myself, until I saw this exciting competition with Debenhams. You're asked to put together two different winter outfits using items from the Debenhams clothes range - one for a warm and cosy day time look, and one for the ultimate party look. There will be one very lucky person who will win a £500 Debenham voucher and in the pot is also £50 vouchers for two runners up. Each of the outfits have to be within a budget of £250 each, so armed with this fantasy amount I went shopping to create two different looks.

Look 1 - Winter Warmer
Warm and wrapped up but stylish for a nice and relaxing stroll in the park, followed by a decadent hot chocolate
Mantaray Mittens £12.60 // Quiz Fleece Lined Leggings £9.99 // Quiz Faux Fur Coat £49.99 // Red Herring Studded Beanie £4.80 // Red Herring Bouclé Scarf £7.50 // Dune Brogues £24 // Darling Jumper £29

Look 2 - Party Look
A nod to Old Hollywood glamour in an Audrey Hepburn inspired black lace dress and obligatory sunglasses to hide from any pesky paparazzi.
Mood Chunky Chain Bracelet £3.20 // Yumi Circle Lace Dress £30 // Infinite Watch £20 // Red Herring Sunglasses £7 // Faith Bowler Bag £31.20 // Dune Dita Ankle Strap Court Shoe £79

I had so much fun putting together the different outfits, and if you're tempted to join in, hurry up since the competition closes tomorrow, January 13. I'm definitely ready to go for some real shopping now but if you like this type of post and want to see more of them, please let me know in the comments. I'm really excited to hear what you think about the two outfits and also if you prefer one over the other - have a wonderful Sunday everyone! Xx
