McArthurGlen is definitely my sort of shopping destination - it is an outlet, so stock is all quite heavily discounted but unlike Bicester Village (our closest equivalent) the brands are much more 'high street' and in turn, much more up my street. There are high end, high street stores like Hobbs and Jaegar thrown in for good measure right down to your M&S basics offering something for everyone. It is also all indoors, which made the experience even better as it was pouringggg.
When it comes to denim, there is only one brand that is really worth springing to mind and that, of course, is Levi's. We had decided we'd style up the 2 pieces individually and then as a double denim look for our ways-to-wear so the Levi's store seemed the obvious places to start our search! I wanted a classic pair of jeans to style up and fancied Indigo for Autumn and I feel the shirt and jeans combo is the best way to rock double denim. I love the pussy bow detailing on the shirt as something a little different - Easy Peasy.
I wanted to do 3 very different looks with the denim pieces so opted for smart, smart casual and casual. The thing with outlet centres is your never quite sure of what you may find so despite doing atleast 2 rounds of all the shops, French Connection just had exactly what I needed and I ended up picking up this amazing Navy Coat to finish off my double denim look, a top to really dress up my jeans and the cosiest of jumpers to casj up the shirt.
Which of my 3 looks is your favourite? Have you been to a McArthurGlen outlet before? Check out their Denim - The New Icons campaign here to get a little more info and don't forget to show us your own Denim Diary using the hashtag #DenimTheIcons
