(✿♥‿♥) Portsmouth Outlet BIG shopping haul (♥‿♥✿)

This was a very last minute decision made by my father by all means to spend a Tuesday together without me being at uni or him going into a meeting all day. Haven't been to Portmouth Gunwharf Quays for MONTHS! This outlet compared to the others we've been reasonable brand-wise.

What a view and on the plus side...SUNNY! (✿◠‿◠)

As I do whenever I come here with my family I like to browse in the stores I'm interested in or out of boredom just wander into as many stores as I could for fun. The first store I approached wouldn't have been my usual but seeing as I was in a good mood to start with so Ted Baker it was. I have to admit I was blown away but the new collection AND I didn't realise I could use my NUS card to discount from the original price AND outlet price!! Baring in mind I did intend to buy my second dress for family weddings in October and I think I've found ze perfect one!! One of the staff, which I'm presuming her role is the store's stylist, was really helpful with this dress. Not only did I tell her what it I would team it with from my own experience, she wanted me to visually see for myself rather than in my mind. Teaming up with a blazer jacket and heels I could see this dress looked every bit sophisticated and classy. I loved it and bought this dress with a good discount.

Ted Baker dress was £159 reduced to £89 and I paid £75. I'm happy with this purchase to be fair and so completes my hunt for dresses for family weddings this October ٩(^‿^)۶.
Jumpsuit from Yumi not sure about original price or outlet price but bought this piece for £5 not bad eh eh (• ε •).

Browsing stores and taking pictures not necessarily buying everything.
Interesting cards at Clintons! Would have bought the coffee cup for myself but the price whacks the back of my head real hard.
My first thought on this was 'Already own' but behind the poster...were the three on the right!! Went ahead and bought the nerd and big ball!! And this is a 22year old I'm talking about here.
1-2: Laptop skin for my macbook (finally a replacement) was £3.50 now £1.50; 3-4: Bunny Strawberry and Cream Lip Balm forgot the original price but I only paid 75p.

Moving on to the FOOD! Previously we've never had good service at Chiquitos but considering it's been years since our last visit to one...might as well see if Portsmouth branch is any better.

1: Dad's 'Lazy Boy' BBQ Pork Quesadilla; 2: Mum's Smoky BBQ Mexican Style chicken; 3: our shared Taco Tapas Meat Tray; 4: Sister's Chimichangas with Spicy Chicken filling and 5: my Smokin' Texan Chilli Hot Dog with fries...absolutely deliciously and yes the hot dog was long but I manage to savour the whole thing ;)

So at the end of the day I manage to get the thing I had in mind from the start (a dress to complete my to-do list) and manage to wiggle in a few stuff I only discovered today. Portsmouth outlet beats all the other outlets I've been to in the past probably because it's by the refreshing sea and it was sunny.
