TK Maxx Summer Suitcase Challenge! #Summer4Keeps

A few weeks ago, TK Maxx invited us to take part in their blogger summer suitcase challenge! We were each provided with a gift card and given the mission of finding a summer holiday outfit for less than £100.

At the weekend I headed to my local store in Bristol to try and find the perfect summer outfit. I'm going on a long weekend to Paris next month so I wanted to create a holiday look suitable for Europe.


Giving some sunglasses the 'pout test' and trying to pick a handbag in the Bristol store.

My game plan was to grab everything I liked and try it all on...Simple haha. After spending a good hour in store, I finally found the outfit! Buying an entire look for less than £100 required some serious savvy shopping but I'm really happy with my choices. 

Denim Shift Dress from TK Maxx
Outfit: c/o TK Maxx

As soon as I spotted this denim shift dress I knew I had to have it! It's a current season designer piece reduced from £135 to £39.99. What a bargain. I love the classic shape and because it's so feminine and chic, it would be ideal for my trip to Paris.

I'm a bit obsessed with fringing at the moment so seriously lucked out when I found this waistcoat in the sale section. It was a total steal at £7 (originally £14.99) and was even made in the UK. It's actually a size 12 but I like that it has a slightly oversized fit.

Coral bag from from TK Maxx

I found choosing a handbag the hardest task because I was so spoiled for choice. In the end I opted for this adorable cross body bag which was on sale from £24.99 to just £18. I love the pink/coral colour which I think looks super pretty against my denim dress. I often find celebrity fashion brands to be a bit hit or miss but this bag is a definite winner.

Espadrilles from TK Maxx

Finally, the shoes! I finished my holiday outfit with these sparkly espadrillesoriginally £70, now £34.99. Wedges are so comfortable and look good with both dresses and shorts. I adore the ankle strap detail on these and I like that they're different to anything I'd usually wear. 

So there you have it, my summer holiday outfit for a very affordable £99.98! I rarely leave any TK Maxx store without making a cheeky purchase, it's bargain central.

Do you like this look? Are you a TK Maxx fan?
