Autumn Shopping Day Out: UK Travel In Derby

Yesterday as it was my husbands day off from work we decided to go out for the day out shopping. 

I was unfortunately holding a slight hangover from a few glasses of wine the night before and was so cold all day. 

We was going to go to Lincoln but as we missed the early train due to me not getting up early enough we did a detour and ended up in Derby. 

I must have been feeling ill I didn’t even buy a thing to wear, lots to eat though MacDonald’s breakfast with hot chocolate,a double Mars bar and a Lucozade, all for recovery!!..


Fur collar biker jacket – Primark new in

Cardigan – Primark new in

Skinny jeans – Matalan few years ago

Boots – Famous footwear early this year

Bag – Local Market

By the time we nearly got home I decided I was going to bed to have a little sleep whilst the hubby fetch the kids from school. 

When I got in my son had taking in a delivery for me, some dresses from the Gok Wan’s 1st anniversary collection for Tu at Sainsbury’s to road test. 

 All of a sudden I felt loads better and very excited about the dresses, they are amazing. 

I found myself dancing around the kitchen swaying them around.

 I have just got around to trying them on and they fit perfect as though they were made for me. 

I cant wait to get my post ready for Saturday to show you them….
