Legally Glam Blogger Style Challenge Competition

Legally Glam, the online fashion accessory boutique, is currently running a Blogger Style Challenge with the chance to win a gorgeous Ollie & Nic satchel. Being the hand bag hoarder that I am, I just had to enter to be in with a chance of winning the little beauty.

The challenge is to create an outfit based around the satchel, that you'd wear for a shopping trip to London with friends. Challenge accepted!

This is what I would wear for an Autumn shopping trip to London...

I've been on countless shopping trips to London, and I've learnt that comfort is essential for an enjoyable trip. There's a lot of walking involved, crowds to manoeuvre around, and a hot Underground to contend with. (Not to mention all those changing rooms!) So I put this outfit together with that in mind, without compromising on style. I went for comfy shoes, layers that can easily be added or removed, and fuss-free accessories. 

I've stuck to three main colours, which I think compliment the bag well and all work well together. You can't go wrong with jewel tones in Autumn! The purple of the bag really stands out against the black pieces and looks stunning with the beautiful forest green of the dress. 

I love forest green with purple, so I just had to start with the lace New Look dress. I added some opaque tights for warmth, and a pair of studded Simply Be ankle boots which are stylish, toughen the dress us, and would be comfortable for walking around in all day. The quilted biker jacket keeps to the edgier look of the outfit, whilst being warm enough for October, and easy to remove on The Tube or in changing rooms. I added in a scarf to provide an extra layer of warmth- (and to also give me my polka dot fix)- as our English weather can be so unpredictable. And I had to add in a couple of light-hearted accessories to show some personality, so I went with a purple Topshop pork pie hat (to complement the bag) and an adorable panda ring by Irregular Choice. And voila! There we have one shopping trip outfit!

I think I've created a comfortable, stylish outfit which is true to my style and shows a hint of personality.

All information about the competition can be found here and you have until 5pm today to enter. Good luck!
