Style Challenge: Filofax and Fashionista Barbie

A couple of weeks ago Filofax asked me how would I style one of their funky colourful organisers for a cool project they were doing with other fashion bloggers, and I have to admit I like a good challenge so I thought I would give it ago.

I had the choice of blue, pink, green or yellow, and I have to admit just the choosing which Filofax was hard but I decided instead of going for my go-to pink I would go full on summery with the gorgeous Apex Personal Organiser in yellow, I just thought I could have more fun with a bright colour.

So as my organiser has a textured finished with the crosshatched cover and a smooth, matt interior, I tried to represent that in my outfit by working this gorgeous dress from New Look with its pleated skirt, and silky finish to the bodice, and because my organiser has a contrasting wrap-around elastic closure I added a tan belt to match my wedges, I thought yellow would have been a tad too much. Finishing off my look is my signature Barbie necklace that I adore and a sparkly Swarovski bracelet.

So what do you think – do you like the red and yellow combination? I thought it would make a change from going pink!!!

As with all style challenges there is a vote element, which makes me feel a little like I am back in high school and hoping that I am the popular, but if you do ‘like‘ my outfit then head on over to Filofax’s Facebook page and hit ‘like‘ on my picture. The blogger who gets the most ‘likes‘ will receive five Filofax organisers to give away to their readers – so if you fancy a funky diary then get liking.

I also want to say a big good luck to my fellow style challenge bloggers who all look amazing with their Filofax’s. I have already voted for Ella from Coco’s Tea Party who styled hers with a fab DVF bag, Reem of Five Five Fabulous who looks smoking hot in her sporty look, as well as one of my favourite style bloggers Frassy who just looks uber-glamorous in a pink and blue outfit. I am definitely up against tough competition!!!

My Style: I am wearing New Look dress, New Look wedges, tan belt, Swarovski bracelet, and my Barbie necklace.
