In this household McArthurGlen is a well known name, we have shopped there year upon year for all of the family, always coming away with full bags bulging with bargains and smiley faces. Yep, we love a nice bargain, but then who doesn’t when there’s over 250 brands including All Saints, Church’s, Ted Baker, Reiss, French Connection, Jaeger, Kurt Geiger, Lulu Guinness and Nicole Farhi offering year-round savings of up to 60%.
So when the lovely folks of McArthurGlen contacted me to tell me about their fantastic #colourmehappy campaign to launch the new season accessories, i thanked the wonderful clothing Gods and jumped at the chance!
A week later the most wonderful pink box of goodies literally landed on my doorstep including Kurt Geiger cobalt blue heels and a beautiful orange Fossil bag.. I had died and gone to accessories heaven.
Colour Me Happy is something i can completely get on board with, if you’ve been reading RTH just a small while, you will know i love to wear colour. I enjoy mixing colours and experimenting with different bright and cheerful combo’s. Colourful outfits really do make me happy.
So, the challenge? Make 3 outfits with the beautiful accessories.
After much over-thinking and umming and ahhing I decided i wanted to show the bag and shoes in 3 different ways; with a dress, trousers and a skirt.
So here are my 3 looks
Here i wanted to mix in a green dress with the blue shoes and orange bag.. A current fave colour combination. I wore the bag loosely on the shoulder, perfect for a meal date.
I knew i wanted to mix in some yellow somewhere and i thought a nice smart-casual look with my patch jeans and a pastel yellow knit felt colourful and spring-esque, all tied up with a vintage headscarf.
I also wore the Fossil bag across body, which i love to wear it this way, especially when my hands are full(with more shopping bags wahaha). This outfit was perfect for lunch and shopping with the bestie.
Skirt & Blazer
The colour combo here was teal, navy and of course orange. I used the bag with-out the strap here like a clutch and added in a statement necklace, the leopard print little belt and some cats eye shape sunglasses for a bit of glam, perfect for a night out with cocktails!:)
So there we have it. 2 accessories, 3 looks!
I can’t wait to get even more wear out of these beautiful pieces.
Which is your favourite?
And do you have any great remix ideas for them?
Big thank you to McArthurGlen, it’s been an absolute privilege!
