Springing into fashion with Aintree Shopping Park

Spring is one of my favourite seasons for fashion, and although we're not quite there yet (I was wearing my coat & gloves today, so...) Aintree Shopping Park invited me and Sam to see what Spring fashion they had in store.

We got the bus from Liverpool City Centre and after about 20 minutes, we found ourselves right on the edge of Aintree Shopping Park - so it's pretty easy to get to. Sadly, there's only two clothes shops and one of them (Next) was closed, leaving us only M&S to shop around in. Now, I used to think M&S was somewhere strictly for grannies to shop in; I was wrong, and their clothes are gorgeous as well as being reasonably priced for how good the quality is.

Florals, pinks, yellows, little bags, trench coats, soft jumpers, a lot of stripes, embroidery, cute trousers with pockets - there's stuff that's really feminine, and stuff that's a bit more androgynous. Totally hipster.

There weren't any clothes that caught my eye, but we also venture to Pets at Home (cute overload) and Hobbycraft, where we bought some blog photo props (typical) as well as something exciting for #CarnLIVal, a blogging event we've got planned for April. I also got ID'd for party poppers but let's not go into that.

There's a maccies on at the shopping park, and a B&Q (wallpaper samples make up most of my photo backgrounds, so if you're not a blogger well I'm sorry to break the illusion...) and they've even got a Nandos. Cheeky.

All in all, Aintree shopping park isn't the best for fashion - the addition of an Outfit store would be pretty good - but it's a decent little shopping area, and florals are back in for Spring.
