Statue of Robin Hood, famous outlaw

As you all know I was on a mission to find a new LWD on Friday. I spent a lovely day in Nottingham with my Mum. However, shopping wise I had the most frustrating day!!! I couldn't find any of the LWD's I'd shortlisted due to the Sales having started (don't you just hate that girls when you have money to spend?) & when I did find something I liked they didn't have my size, so I ended up buying nothing - aaargghh!!!

Thankfully we have the internet at our fingertips so I have ordered the Topshop Knitted dress - will let you know if I like it when it arrives.
Have you had any similar shopping experiences?

Meanwhile, as the city of Nottingham is stooped in history I took a few photos to share with you...



Nottingham Castle, originally built 1067

tee River Island, jeans Zara, toe posts River Island, bag River Island, sunglasses Marc Jacobs, watch Michael Kors

We stopped here for a drink...shopping is thirsty work!


This is the oldest Inn in England, built in 1189 a.d


Clock Tower


Town Hall


One of the many shopping arcades


Great choice of shops

Love the photos! Your Zara jeans are awesome; such a cute shopping outfit! As far as my shopping experiences go, I NEVER find anything when I'm looking for specifis items (and have money to buy those)... However, when I'm just browsing through the stores, suddenly I find everything what I want and need :D Can't wait to see your Topshop dress!
