Manchester Bound

Jacket: Old Navy, Dress: H&M, Shoes: Gap, Bag: Rebecca Minkoff, Sunglasses: c/o Polette, Watch: Michael Kors, Bracelets: J.Crew and c/o Stowe Street

The UK tour continues! Later this same day, we hopped on a train from London to Manchester to visit the Boohoo Headquarters. It was neat to be able to see some of England's countryside on our train ride that I wouldn't have gotten to see otherwise - so many sheep!

We met with Boohoo CEO's Carol Kane and Mahmud Kaman and they told us a little bit of the background and how it all came to be, and I had my first official afternoon tea! As much as I love green tea and flavored herbal teas, I've never actually had a straight up cup of black tea, so England felt like the proper place to do so! After checking in to our hotel, we went out for a casual dinner with a few of the folks from the Boohoo team.

On a completely unrelated note, these might be my new favorite sunnies! They're from Polette, which is possibly the cutest online glasses shop I've ever seen. Their whole website and eyewear collection are completely adorable, and even better, completely affordable. I'm wearing the Champs Elyse, and they ring at a mere $14.99, though the packaging and quality would definitely lead you to think they were more! 

If you haven't been already, you can see more of our UK adventures through the eyes of the other amazing bloggers that I traveled with, Jen, Alicia and Elizabeth!

    1. Thanks! I actually bought it probably 3-4 years ago now but I've seen similar ones there since then!

  3. sheep fields, English countryside and afternoon tea? That to me sounds almost more exciting than all the official Boohoo stuff you were actually there to do, ha.

    I love that printed dress!

  7. I thought the same thing while travelling by train in England! There are SO many sheep! I was In London just the week before you and took the train to Bath for a day. I loved the city and it's surrounding area so much. I was thrilled to see you had went after I got home... It's almost like my trip lasted a little bit longer with you posting of your adventures!

    Love the outfit, love your blog... and have a good day!
