On Tuesday morning they set off in their teams to play Monopoly around the city, using the board I'd put together. They had to take photo evidence to show that they'd been to each of the squares, as well as answering questions for some of them and stopping off at checkpoints for some extra points (and so that we could be sure none of them were getting lost). We all met back up at the end of their game at Covent Garden and then headed for a pizza before seeing Wicked!
Wednesday morning included some time in Kensington for the museums, a quick trip to Harrods and then the train home again. All in all an action-packed few days and I was really pleased with how well everything went, how lucky we were with the bright weather, and that everyone seemed to enjoy themselves. The thought of taking some of our units to somewhere like London has seemed rather daunting in the past, but I'd definitely consider it more seriously in the future, given how well this trip went.
As I didn't manage to get many photos of myself whilst I was there, I took some outfit photos when I got home yesterday evening. I literally wore these trainers for the whole trip, I didn't take any other shoes, which is really unlike me, but we had to carry everything around so I needed to make sure all of my packing fitted into one bag.
I'd never been quite sure whether I liked the wedge trainers trend or not, until spotting the print on this Topshop pair. They started off wildly expensive for something I wasn't sure I'd wear, though so I favourited them online and didn't give them much more thought until the Topshop sale happened recently and they'd been reduced to £15. I thought I may as well give them a try at that price and when they arrived I decided that, although they're not my usual thing, I liked them. They were also nice and comfortable for a lot of traipsing around London and tube travel.
For the travel home, I wore them with an old skirt from Motel, and a stripey vest and sequinned cardigan. Another clashy outfit, which seems to be my favourite kind.
