Shopping Trip at McArthur Glen

When McArthur Glen recently got in touch and posted the challenge of 2 accessories from their designer outlet store, remixed 5 ways, i obviously jumped in heels first.

 Re-mix is my buzz word, as you’ve probably come to realise. After years of frivolous buying and yet still standing in-front my wardrobe each morning with the daunting feeling of “I have nothing to wear”, I decided to change and with that i started to curate a wardrobe filled with re-mixable pieces that each held numerous possible outfits. Waking up and getting dressed no longer feels so daunting and i seem to be collecting classic pieces with a few statement wow items. 

With that in mind off i trotted, with a rather lovely gift voucher in hand, to my local McArthur Glen in Bridgend, South Wales. I took my darling step daughter, Mia, along for a full on girly day of trying on clothes, hot chocolates and cake. It was the best, and something we’ve decided to make a regular thing.

Now McArthur Glen literally spoils you for choice.It has so much there like French Connection, Jaeger, Radley, Ted Baker and so on. All this at reduced rates. Needless to say with this in mind i was like a kid in a sweet shop(which fyi they also have those, and cakes to die for too!)

We literally shopped till we dropped. I have to say my 12 year old step daughter has far more shopping stamina than me (and quite the eye for a designer piece too it seems… this could prove expensive lol!)

As i mentioned the challenge was set to buy two items that could be worn five separate ways.

After a lot of shopping and changing room antics i decided on a gorgeous pair of tan sandals from French Connection and a tan bag from Carvela- Kurt Geiger (and with my change some extra goodies, which shall be revealed tomorrow).

To me tan accessories are just perfection. I will always always revert back to a great tan pair of shoes and bag. They will literally just take an outfit from meh to wow in 5 seconds. I am so super pleased with my purchases that i just know they will be getting endless wear this spring/summer and beyond.

Be sure to swing by tomorrow to see my 5 looks with my 2 accessories!

For now, Here’s a few pics from our day..

Big HUGE thank you to the lovely people at McArthur Glen Bridgend for treating us so so nicely when we were there. Everyone was super lovely and made Mia and me feel like celebs for the day;)
