2 accessories remixed 5 ways with McArthur Glen

As i mentioned in yesterdays post i recently had the absolute pleasure of a shopping trip to my local McArthur Glen
The challenge that was set to us;
2 accessories styled 5 ways.
With that in mind whilst perusing the gorgeous designer shops i knew that i wanted 2 pieces that would work well with multiple outfits. 
The other thing that was on my mind whilst shopping, was how McArthur Glen makes great Designer brands like Fossil, Radley and Kurt Geiger more accessible for all. An investment now costs even less when you have a designer outlet to shop at. Which is great for people,like me, who like to save £££ wherever possible.
So with my accessories i played it safe  went the classic route of a great tan bag and heels. 
I have been crushing on black and grey all winter long, it was about time i turn to my all time favourite accessory colour and see what it can do for me.
There really is something to be said for buying two great pieces that will work hard for you and yet make getting dressed easier.
This Carvela by Kurt Geiger bag and French connection heels do just that.
Here at 5 outfits with my 2 (amazing) accessories. 
This may just be their beginning... i envisage A LOT of wear in their future.

First Up;

With a little Red Dress
We all know how much i love red and this French Connection dress is an absolute dream. I'm imagining cocktails, in the sunshine, with the girls in this little ensemble.




Second
The Casual weekender
Khaki is my go to colour this spring i can not get enough! The khaki trousers are slouchy and so comfy, i added in a slogan tee and my denim jacket for the perfect weekender outfit.


Boho Summer 
I kinda wanted to try all different ways of wearing the heels and bag; with trousers, a dress and a skirt. I threw this outfit together last minute as my skirt option, but it actually became one of my favorites. Mixing black and tan is always a winning combination, add in the rich wine colour and the kimono and a fun boho-look is created perfect for spring and summer.



Smart in Palazzo Trousers and a Crop Top
Loving my new palazzo trousers and utilising the ability to wear crop tops... even better that it's striped! Black, white and tan is one of those combinations that never gets old.

add in a puppy and you have the perfect accessories any outfit could have!


Jeans and Jumper
Another of my favourites, i have lived in this outfit lately. This Gap jumper is perfect spring wear, layered with my navy trench and paired with my ripped jeans. The tan accessories  really pop against the navy and white.


So there we have it ; 2 accessories remixed 5 ways!
Which is your favourite? How would you wear this bag and heels?

  4. oh, I love them all. I've always shied away from tan accessories as I find it a difficult colour to style, but you've certainly managed it here.

  5. 5 fantastic outfits Rachel. I love how you styled the red dress and the wide-legged black trousers, especially. Chic, polished, on trend and modern as usual. Hope all is well. Welcome by sometime.

    Have a great weekend! Ada. =)
