If you’re not aware, M&S are running a Summer Dress styling competition for bloggers with the chance to win £200 in vouchers to put towards a capsule M&S holiday wardrobe. All you have to do to is show them how you would style your favourite summer dress for your dream holiday destination and also pick your favourite dress from their collection. 

When it comes to packing dresses for my holiday, I normally go for two styles – body con and tight to glam up in the evening, or baggy to throw on over a bikini in the day. I’m not really a fan of maxi dresses, especially on holiday they're far too hot!

I’ve picked a dress that would be perfect for both my summer holiday and also an essential for my dream holiday destination, Thailand! I would wear this tunic over a bright orange bikini as the light material and loose fit means it would keep me cool whilst I’m taking in the sights during the day. It’s also easy to whip off when the heat gets too much and I need to dive in to the crystal blue sea to cool off! I would pair it with some comfy blue JuJu jellies, a white leather backpack for all my tourist essentials and pull my hair off my face with a 90’s gold scrunchie to keep cool. As Thailand is known for its legendary beach parties I would keep a gold necklace and dressy watch in my bag to add a little bit of glam for the evening so I don't waste any valuable time by going back to the hotel and getting changed. And, with a spritz of Bumble & Bumble surf hair spray and some summer perfume, I would be ready to party the night away!

The competition ends tomorrow (21st August) at midnight, so if you want to enter hurry!
