I recently received an email asking would I like to take part in the Boohoo £100 challenge to be in with a chance to win a £100 voucher for myself but also a £250 voucher for my readers. Well, I thought it would be foolish not to participate.

So for my challenge I picked this beautiful blue skater dress which is a steal for only £12.00 I love this royal blue colour and the skater style dress really suits my figure. Next I decided to stick to more neutral pieces as the dress is quite a striking colour, so I picked these black heals that have a hint of gold on the heel which will blend in nicely with my jewellery. I figured these heels are a good basic and you could wear them with a vast majority of outfits, so say next time my budget was £30 I could just pick a dress to match these heals and I am sorted! I had to pick tights and a blazer as part of my outfit as I am cold creature I would catch my death if I stepped out in just the skater dress. This blazer would also be fabulous paired with a simple white tank and black skinnies and the heels, but also lovely for over the dress to keep in some heat. For accessories I picked this cute clutch which has a shoulder strap attached so you can wear it both ways. I think this is also a casual enough piece to wear for a day shopping as you wouldn't end up carrying around half the house in it. For jewellery I decided to keep it simple by adding this cute spike bracelet and stud earrings. Finally I picked a deep blue nail varnish to add the finishing touches to my ensemble. Can you believe I have picked up 8 items and I managed to be under the £100 budget.

I have bought items from Boohoo in the past and have nothing but good things to say about them. I have always been happy with my purchases and their delivery has been very good in comparison to Topshop (I honestly think they send the Topshop deliveries by tortoise as they take so long to reach Ireland) Thankfully I have never had to return any items so I cant comment on that part of their service. 
What I love about Boohoo is their affordable prices. A dress for £30 how can you go wrong? Also I would like to commend them of offering student discount to Irish students! So many retailers forget about us poor little Irish students and don't allow us to avail of student discount online.

Have you picked up any nice Boohoo items recently, let me know in the comments below, also if you have complete this challenge please leave me your link below as I would love to see what outfits you girls picked.
