Last week I opened up an email which asked me if I wanted to take part in a blogger styling challenge alongside a host of other bloggers in order to win a voucher for Miss Luxe. I of course couldn't resist the idea of styling a cute dress a few different ways so I emailed back straightaway saying yes please! A couple of days later this gorgeous red lace skater dress popped through my letterbox. 

The idea was to style that same dress for three different summery occasions: a beach break, your best friend's barbecue and a summer night out. For the beach break I went for simple summery accessories such as a floral hair garland, some white sandals and the all important sunglasses. For the barbecue I decided to dress down a bit by layering a cropped t-shirt over the dress and teaming it with some metallic trainers and a heap of jewellery. Lastly for the summer nights look I added black accessories to the dress such as a belt, a bowler hat and my gorgeous lace up platform boots and finished off the look with some cute frilly socks. 

What do you think of how I've styled this dress? If you think I deserve to win this challenge please vote for me using my twitter name @laurenella_ and the hashtag #missluxestyle or you can head over to their Facebook page and vote for me there by liking the picture of my look, I'll add the direct link once I have it!
