Today felt like the longest day EVER in work. All I wanted to do was just skip merrily out of the building and into the new Topshop that opened today on Briggate in Leeds. I was in a meeting that normally finishes at about 4.30, which typically decided to overrun by about a zillion hours today (okay so it was more like half an hour, but still!) so I practically ran into town when I finally left the hospital. I think I had visions in my panicked little head that all of the clothes in the whole three floor shop would have somehow been snapped up before I arrived. I was pleased to discover that the staff had stocked their shelves accordingly to ensure that this sort of shopping disaster didn't happen.
I only came away with one top (cue sigh of relief from my bank card) but I was more excited just to go along and see what all the fuss was about. I knew there was a good reason for living in Leeds (aside from my friends and work and all that jazz obviously)... biggest Topshop outside London, YES PLEASE. Although I was quite disappointed I didn't get one of the nice little free gift cards that most of the customers seemed to be wielding. Although it was probably for the best, I'd have no doubt managed to justify buying half the shop if a bit of money off had been involved...
Anyway, moving back in time a little from tonight's adventure... on Saturday the boy and I had a lovely little date night and went for a few drinks, watched Leeds Rhinos win the rugby (although I didn't have the foggiest about what was actually happening in the game) and a burger, which you may have seen me harping on about in a previous post. We also ended up in Yates's briefly after the boy decided £3.75 a pint in the bar we were in was a bit much. Needless to say we didn't stop long, the place was chock a block full of a 30th birthday party with 'Tasty Trish', 'Juicy Jan' and 'Saucy Sue' leading the pack. Oh sometimes I love Leeds. Classy city.
Instead of opting for a neon t-shirt with my own ridiculous name (not even sure what innuendo would actually alliterate with Kaz), I wore this delightful little shirt I found in Ark the other weekend. Its currently rivalling the burgundy jumper for the title spot of most worn item in Kaz's wardrobe.
shirt: Hearts & Bows at Ark, jeans: River Island, boots: Next, Jacket: Topshop
When I bought this shirt, I must admit that one of my first thoughts was "ooh this would look great with the collar poking out from under my burgundy jumper". Seriously, I need to branch out a bit. I do own other clothes, honestly.
