Wow, has it really been over a month since I last blogged?! I hope you all haven't forgotten about me, although I wouldn't be surprised if you had to double take when you saw this post haha! The past couple of months has just been so hectic with uni and such, but the other day I handed in my second to last assignment EVER, and although I still have an 8,000 word dissertation to write over the next two weeks, I already feel a lot better. So let's get back in to the swing of things!

A couple of weeks ago I was contacted by the lovely Simone, who is representing McArthurGlen Designer Outfits, asking if I wanted to take part in their Spring Fling Style Challenge. I'm a little late to the party, but last week and all this week, McArthurGlen shopping outlets are holding "Fashion Fling" events alongside Grazia in outlets up and down the country, where lots of discounts and offers are up for grabs. The closest outlet to me is the Cheshire Oaks Designer Outlet, and they very kindly sent me two lovely accessories which I have to style up in to three different outfits for you- I'll be showing you a casual day time outfit, an outfit for a semi-formal occasion, and an evening outfit. 

The first item I received is this beautiful Zebra Rose Gold Plated Necklace by Folli Follie. It is such a simple but eye-catching piece and is perfect for adding an extra touch to a casual outfit. Here I teamed it with a simple white tee and checkered shirt combo, and these blue disco pants by NaaNaa (which are super stretchy and comfortable, by the way!). I have pretty much been living in comfy outfits like this over the past few weeks whilst I have been running back and to between uni and home, but I always love jazzing up my outfits with accessories. This necklace hangs at a perfect length and I think the shiny rose gold really pops out against my white t-shirt.

If you would like to check out the activities happening at Cheshire Oaks over the next week, take a look at their Fashion Fling page (if you're not near Cheshire Oaks, check out the McArthurGlen website for your nearest outlet) :)

Have you been getting involved in the Fashion Fling festivities?
