#COLOURMEHAPPY





In celebration of the new Spring/Summer collections available at the six McArthur Glen outlet's across Europe, they've launched a little blogger competition to win a Mulberry bag! The competition requires you to style two accessories from their new collections to style however you see fit. This blog post is my entry to the competition but also a little insight for you to see how you could style up some bright accessories this season. 

The first item that I was given was the beautiful Carvela shoes in royal blue which is a colour that I haven't really experimented much with since it became quite a big trend. Luckily they go really well with my Maisy tote bag from Pauls Boutique so I could easily style them up together with a more monochrome outfit. I quite like how they turned a quite dull look into something much more bright and stylish. The second outfit that I styled with the shoes is much brighter and more summer-y with the addition of some white jeans (which are a new venture of mine). I also picked up this cami in h+m which goes perfectly with the shoes!

The second item was the bright red Fossil bag which I found quite difficult to style. I'm not one for small bags (which you may have noticed) but I thought that teaming it up with monochrome was probably the best idea. I love the feel of the bag, because its soft leather its got that smooth touch which adds a bit of luxury to it. There are also cute features like the key and hidden pocket at the back. With the outfit that I chose, the bag really stands out despite the polka dots.

MULTI PATTERN.





scrunchie // vintage
cropped tee // topshop
tribal print trousers // bonprix
sandals // florence and fred


This outfit is pretty much made of things in my wardrobe which I rarely wear. The trousers and tee are nice enough on their own but they look quite good together which is something I hadn't tried before. The prints don't necessarily go but I like it.

PASTEL PATTERNS.






sunglasses // ebay (here)
scarf // h+m
jumper // hmkids
skort // omg fashion (here)+
chunky boots // new look (here)

I am still so not a fan of my weird triangle legs but my new obsessive tendencies for the gym will come in handy to sort this out. I guess I should be grateful that I haven't got kankles but for now, they are too teeny tiny for my liking. This skort is still a firm favourite of mine when it comes to sunshine or warmer days, although the zip is a tiny bit broken now which I fully blame on my drunken self - but its still okay as long as I don't need to pee all day..
