So I was recently invited to go and explore my local designer outlet McArthurGlen in Bridgend to see what they had to offer, not only for me but the whole family. We have been before but not for a while and were excited to see the redeveloped play area as well as new stores. First stop though was to hire a car for Mr A, they are ingenious really as the centre quite big and I know without these push cars Mr A would get bore pretty quickly but they have planned the centre with kids in mind.
We picked up a variety of things including this denim t-shirt dress from Next which is perfect for summer and have paired it up with some Clarks Original sandals, Firmoo sunglasses and a Paul Costello bag. At McArthurGlen I also picked up two vintage style tops from M&S and Fatface while Mr A loved the Vans store and Mountain Warehouse while John went for a little something from Timberland and we also picked up one or two things for Baby G - that is what is so fantastic about the centre is it's perfect for families especially with their newly refurbished Dinosaur themed play area which Mr A loved.

There are tons of places to eat so we let it up to Mr A to decide and he went with Eds easy diner in the end, an American themed diner. The staff were really friendly and I love all the retro and vintage fittings, plus being able to pick songs on the jukebox at your table is a great little touch. They also had a great Chickpea and Quinoa vegetarian burger and a Gluten free menu.
McArthurGlen Bridgend also has a cinema should you want to catch a film after some retail therapy and their high end array of stores include Osprey, Fossil, Tommy Hilfiger and French Connection to name a few and I cannot wait to share our bits and bobs we picked up on the blog.
I really hope you can come and join in with Street Style Sunday - anything fashion related goes including what you and your family are wearing or what is inspiring you this week.
Thanks to McArthurGlen for inviting us
