Take me Shopping?

“Can you take me shopping”… words I always like to hear because, although I don’t really get excited over the thought of going shopping, I’ve realised I’m just genuinely good at it… isn’t that funny…!  Some hate it and I admit, if it’s crowded I can’t abide it, but little and often seems to be a good way to go!

It is lovely helping people spend their hard-earned pennies and then seeing them so happy in their new attire – ah joy!  My muse for this weeks’ post agreed to me snapping away as it was  too good a photographic opportunity not to make the most of, so off we went!

We only had a small window of two and a half hours (I like short and sweet shopping) and on the day we went it rained so hard….all day (did I say it rained?!!) so went to a nearby newly-opened shopping mall, The Trinity Centre in Leeds.

Cross-body bags are a must for shopping and Nicola’s cute heeled-brogues made it a great outfit!

Coffee is always a good idea!

Although not looking for undergarments (at all), we spent a lot of time in Victoria’s Secret where, amongst other things, this shirt below was purchased.  It has a fabulous Moroccan-type print, is slim-fitting and perfect over jeans or if you dare, with a longer slip underneath and just with sandals.

Never be afraid to use an item made for one thing to serve the purpose of another!

Ahoy there! Anything Nautical is just catching my eye at the moment.

The below garment placed on the back of the fitting-room door was just so ‘ah are you kidding’ subtle…not.  But the one thing I kept saying during our shop was “just try it on” .  Nicola was so open to trying new things which made it a dream and the result, she now has so many new pieces she would never have dreamed of trying had she been shopping alone.

This T-shirt was just hanging on the back of the door with these words inside...

Had to feature some of the pieces at Ted Baker here because although very loud and bold which isn’t for everyone, it amazes me the prints, colours and fabrics the industry is now able to use… I cannot help but be amazed!

Stunning Sequin Jacket

Statement Shorts… now I wouldn’t, but would you?

Power Shoes!

The Waiting Game – Cameran and I … #selfie!

Someone else waiting!

Result!

Job well done… clearly not a secret!

After all that…. Ahhh!

Our Antipasti… there would perhaps be more food shots but always forget to take pics of food because I dive in too soon!… half way through “oops!

Dessert!

Dessert!
