I always enjoy styling challenges, I love how different bloggers put their spin on things, and personal style is so important to be, hopefully shining through on most of my outfit posts. 
When Debenhams asked me to style a maxi dress for both a British holiday and one in Barbados, I was excited to see what I could come up with. 

Britain: Dress c/o Debenhams| Blazer c/o Quiz| Bag c/o LYDC| Sunglasses from River Island

I wore this outfit to a day out in the Costwolds, so it really was the perfect British holiday style up. I needed my sunglasses still, that I am in love with at the moment, but also covered up with a cute but basic thin blazer. I wore my hair up in braids as I know the heat and chance of rain always makes it frizzy and used my bag big enough for everything, to carry Sev's bits and all my camera equipment. 
The dress is so so pretty and easy to through on with flats, a cover up and be perfect for the British BBQ season as well as cocktails with friends down the seafront. 

Barbados: Shoes c/o Debenhams| Hat c/o Matalan

Sadly I couldn't set off on my travels for this one, and the canal path had to do, but I am still in love with this look and think this one wins for me. It's so basic, yet I think the print of the dress and the big floppy hat really sets the statement. I could imagine being handed cocktails, sitting on a beach, and basically feeling rather grand and wonderful about life. 
I'm really enjoying my hair with a waved look at the moment, and I think it goes so well with the beachy holiday feel of the outfit. 

How would you style up the same outfit for your exotic holiday and day out at home?
