Recently, I was challenged by Travelbag to create an outfit that would be suitable for the any-occasion, day-to-night varied atmosphere that a cruise offers. This is my entry for a chance to win £500 cruise vouchers (come to me)! Now, I've never been on a cruise but I chose this outfit as its suitable for any occasion and its pretty easy to dress up and down. To transition the day night into the evening I simply swapped the ankle boots for heels (though a smart pair of flats would've done nicely for day and night), added a fancy statement necklace and changed into 'swishier shoulder coverage.' And with the base being shorts and a vest top, it'd be a quick job to remove the tights and jacket if things heated up during the day. 

I recently picked this clutch up from Depop - I tend to use the site mainly for selling but this pony clutch had to be mine at £10, and somehow it goes with everything. Or just because I say so. The shorts are also a recent addition and are a little more winter appropriate I'd say, (despite being shorts). They're of a super silky velour material with a little lace trim and a high waist to er, tuck my food baby into. 
These boots are also pretty Autumn appropriate, and I'm loving them already mainly due to how super comfortable they are - I have toe wiggle room! This was the first time I wore them out, but I'm looking forward to pairing them with different variations of sock - I'm not sure how sad that makes me but I'm sure you've been there before. 

You'll also notice a couple of new jewellery pieces. I am quite impartial to a statement necklace, and this Coast baby is something special. I love House of Fraser for things like this as theres so much variation between brands - Spoilt for choice really! This bracelet is brand new too and I'm loving the Tiffany-esque of it. I might even prefer it with its chain catch as I can actually do it up myself. I've only got one charm on it, and I probably won't add more anyway - Always a fan of simplicity! 

What do you think?
What would you wear for a varied cruise environment?
