A day out in London and a tale (there’s a surprise) about a dress

There’s a story about the dress that I’m wearing at the bottom of this post which goes like this….

On Monday I was working in London. Being as hot as it was, I decided that I didn’t want to travel in my fancy pants gear so instead I opted for GAP shorts and top, plus trainers.

On arriving in London, I decided to walk the 3.5 miles from the station to the venue, so I was pleased to be wearing these Nike trainers. I plugged myself into my ipod, set the sat nav on my phone and off I went.

On the way I passed the London eye….

The Shard…

Tower Bridge…

And the Tower of London

But most importantly, I saw a women wearing this dress, which I recognised as the GAP striped shift dress (£19.99 in store). So the very next day, when doing my returns in Birmingham, I bought one.

And here it is! Lovely cotton and fully lined, here I’m wearing it with my Jigsaw skater trainers, which oddly is also how the GAP lady is wearing it. I promise that I didn’t copy her!

Thanks to everyone in London for such a great time and apologies for the lack of photographs from the event. Once I got there (having set the alarm off in the lift – oops!) it was time to set to work.
