Kingfisher shopping centre blogger challenge

Last Monday i was invited down to The Kingfisher Shopping Centre in Redditch to take part in their 'Blogger Challenge' - i was given a £50 voucher to buy a whole outfit from the Spring/Summer 2013 collections from any store in the centre. As you will know, £50 doesn't get you much in this day and age so i was a little apprehensive about the challenge, but was eager to hunt down some bargains! I caught the train from Worcester, the centre is perfectly located right next to Redditch train station so it was mega easy to get to.

I'm local to the area and had been to the shopping centre when i was younger but not recently so couldn't really remember what it was like - i went on a Monday morning so it was relatively quiet, and SO clean too which is always nice. The selection of the shops is great and they have lots of high street favourites like River Island, H&M, New Look, and an enormous Primark too (as well as others, full store list available here) and they have plenty of coffee shops and food places - everyone needs to refuel after shopping, after all it is proper cardio. So, with my voucher and little helper Sunny by my side, off we went in search of a Spring outfit.

At first it was tricky as i wasn't sure what style/kind of outfit i wanted to go for, so i thought it'd be good if i started with the shoes and worked my way up from there; i found these amazing jewelled sandals in Primark and bought them as i knew they'd be a good starting point. Then we popped over to H&M where they had loads of printed trousers and jeans, i love the colour and skinny fit of this pair so bought these along with the sleeveless biker vest that can be worn so many different ways - i was very excitable at this point! To complete the outfit i wanted a plain white vest to go underneath, and a bit of bling round my neck to finish it off. It was as easy as that.

I am super duper pleased with this 'look' - and the entire lot costs under £50, who knew £50 could go so far? Not me, but it's true...i promise. Also, the outfit doesn't even look cheap which makes it even better!

Thank you to Kingfisher Shopping Centre in Redditch for everything, i will definitely be back for more shopping in the near future!
