OOTD: A Fashion Blogger Cheshire

fashion-blogger-outfit-image

 

I am loving the autumn season and layering trend going on. It is my favourite time of the year as it is not too hot or too cold, and only rains on few occasions in Cheshire, so I am loving it at the moment. But the layering trend is my favourite part of autumn. I wore this outfit some days ago. I had errands to run and some friends to see, and I wanted a very casual chic look; this is what I came up with.

Many of these items are new additions to my autumn wardrobe. I got the sweater, shirt, shoes and bag at my shopping event at Cheshire Oaks some weeks ago. And I love that they all complement my existing wardrobe already. That is 1 thing I look out for when shopping. I always have a plan and a list of pieces and accessories I need to fill in the gaps in my wardrobe. I don’t do impulse shopping. Apart from the fact that it is bad for your bank balance or credit card statement as the case might it, it also messes up your wardrobe. You end of having many items you can’t pair together, which means they can be left unworn with the tags on in your wardrobe for years to come.

Shopping smart means I never run out of outfits to wear, regardless of the season. And that is extremely important as a Fashion Blogger. It would be ridiculous for me to go shopping every week (even if I could afford to) to show off a new outfit, but thanks to having a capsule wardrobe, every outfit looks new.

Styling A White Shirt

If you have been reading Fashion and Style Police for a while then you would know all about my love for designer items. I like to mix high street  with high-end designer pieces and accessories to create my look, and it works for me. So you can imagine my excitement when the lovely people at McArthurGlen invited me to shop at their designer outlet in Cheshire last Saturday. If you follow me on Instagram (and if you don’t, why don’t you?), you would have seen my updates while shopping at the designer outlet. I had an amazing time as you can imagine. Shopping is what I like to do, I can even do it in my sleep…

This shopping event was centered around styling the iconic white shirt. McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Cheshire Oaks teamed up with iconic tailoring brand – Brooks Brothers to launch an exciting pop-up concept: The White Shirt Bar. I visited this exclusive custom designed airstream. With over 200sqft of space, the 31ft airstream has been refurbished to create a unique, one-off shopping experience. For those who do not know, Brook Brothers founded in 1818, is one of the most iconic American brands and the oldest clothier in the United States, having dressed 39 of the
44 United States Presidents and being the first to introduce the concept of button-down collar shirts and ready-made men’s suits to the American market.

Today Brooks Brothers has 280 stores across 23 countries and 5 continents and is heavily engaged in the world of film and TV, having created all of the men’s costumes for the 2013 production of The Great Gatsby starring one of my favourite actors – Leonardo DiCaprio, costumes for every season of the popular TV series – Mad Men as well as many other film and TV productions.

The White Shirt Bar would be available at Cheshire Oaks for the whole of October so it is definitely worth checking out.

I was gifted a white shirt by Brooks Brothers, a goody bag with all sorts of goodies and yummies including some amazing white shirt cookies by Corporate Cakery, and a generous gift card to get pieces and accessories in the designer outlet to style the white shirt. I am a regular at the Cheshire Oaks designer outlet so I knew my way around, but I decided to hit the shops early as per my shopping smart tips. After going from shop to shop, I finally settled on the pieces you see below. I had a certain look in my head and I am glad I achieved it.

The white shirt has an amazing fit and screams quality from a distance. I also found it very easy to style. I got a few other pieces and accessories I will be showing off in upcoming outfit posts for your viewing pleasure, so keep your eyes peeled.
