Fashion Fling Trend Challenge Take One: McArutherGlen Designer Outlets‏

I was asked by McArutherGlen Designer Outlet if I would like to take part in their Fashion Fling challenge. This involved being sent two pieces which their stylist picked and creating a number of outfits centered around these pieces. There will be an overall winner picked from all the bloggers who take part. I thought this might be a fun challenge to take part in.
McArutherGlen have teamed up with Grazia as part of this Spring Fling promotion - you'll find key pieces around their shopping centres with tags saying 'as seen in Grazia'. There are a variety of different things going on up until 21st April - take a look at York Designer Outlet website for more information.
The first piece I am going to style is a yellow Ted Baker shoulder bag - yellow is the colour for spring and I thought it was a great choice for this challenge. I've styled three outfits centered around this bag, let me know what you think:

Work Outfit 
I teamed the bag up with all Topshop here - I like layers for work so I teamed this skater dress with this net jumper. The gold spike boots are one of my favourite pieces. I thought with this outfit I'd let the bag do the talking and I like the way it brings colour to the outfit.

Shopping Outfit
For an everyday day shopping outfit I teamed this ACDC t-shirt with some skinny bleached jeans from Topshop. There is some yellow in the t-shirt so I thought this would sit well with the bag. I wore some simple studded loafers to finish this outfit off.

Going Out Outfit
I like to make a statement when I go out and I thought this batman print dress was the perfect dress to pair with the bag. I tucked in the strap to make it into a clutch - I do this with a few of my other bags too. As this dress it quite short I wore some lace trim cycling shorts underneath and finished the look off with these perspex heels from Office.
