We went on a lovely day trip to Birmingham today, me, the twins, my Mum, sister, Auntie and cousin. I got all organised last night and we were all up, fed, dressed and ready for the train this morning. The twins seemed to enjoy their first trip by rail, especially Tilly who spent most of the journey looking out of the window.
First stop was the pop up Boden shop at the Bullring until Christmas, how amazing! It was only small but it was nice to see the clothes for a change rather than looking at them on the internet. Oooh, imagine if there was one in Nottingham...I can dream! I got a lovely kilt style skirt but it has been saved by my Mum for Christmas. It is a dark green and burgundy colour and I picked up a matching burgundy t-shirt to go with it. I don't have a picture as it has been hidden away!
We managed to get ourselves 5 free umbrellas! We were all very excited, they were giving them away to new customers but the lady was obviously feeling generous and gave us all one.
We had some lunch and a look around Selfridges, of course, could any trip to the Bullring be complete without it? I was conscious of not spending too much time looking at things that I can get at home and didn't buy anything other than a little Christmas present. Having said that, we did go into Gap. We do have one here but it is always really cramped and messy, I never seem to see anything which is a shame as I really love Gap and used to buy practically everything from there. The Birmingham one is much nicer and I found a top to match my red skirt that I have previously posted on here and was wearing today. I have been looking for a top to go with it as I don't really have anything and picked up a navy and white striped one that has red striped sleeves, the red matches perfectly and it was only £14.95, bargain. And you can't go wrong with stripes! I also picked up a navy cardigan which I haven't photographed.
My outfit today was the red skirt and a navy and white striped t shirt from John Lewis that has an exposed zip on the back giving it a nice look. I also wore my Ralph Lauren trench and Orla Keily scarf. I have posted all of these on the blog before but forgot to get a photo today as I was in a bit of a rush this morning.
