London / Manchester Pt. 2

These photos were taken the day we arrived in Manchester a couple weeks ago. I was absolutely shocked at how beautiful Manchester was as a city. All I'd known of it before was that it was formerly an industrial city and that it had two pretty competitive football (sorry, I mean soccer) teams. I was not expecting to find all of the beautiful architecture, fantastic restaurants and neat little shops that I saw there. The first day, we visited the Boohoo.com offices and then went to dinner at Albert's Shed with the Boohoo team, where I had the most amaaazing dinner (and maybe a few glasses of prosecco too).
We stayed at yet another gorgeous hotel, this time at the ABode Manchester. As I mentioned on Instagram, the decor was totally how I imagine my future apartment looking - warm, vintage-inspired and the type of place you just want to curl up in with a good book. The hotel is a converted cotton warehouse, which you could see in the super high loft-like ceilings and antique hardwood flooring. Also, every single one of us talked about how awesome it was to sleep in a starfish pose in the massive California king size bed. I will definitely be heading back to Manchester to explore the city more next time I'm in the UK and will be dreaming of that humongous bed until then.

Photos 3 & 7 stolen from Alicia Fashionista and all outfit photos taken by her too. Thanks girl!

  11. Oh my goodness, aside from your gorgeous ensemble, I am in love with the wallpaper of your hotel room. That is by far the most beautifully decorated room ever!
