Dorothy Perkins blouse // Warehouse trousers // Topshop shoes
Say hello to my Topshop sale purchase - these pretty new pointed, studded flats! What more could you want in a shoe? Seeing as the British summer is still playing hide and seek I paired them with trousers and a plain white blouse for a casual shopping/dinner date with Gordon. I bought a long black blazer in Primark on the day and chucked it on to smarten up the outfit for dinner. After much deliberation we ended up eating at Soul in Aberdeen...
Soul is a restaurant/bar/casino set in a grand old looking church on Union Street and is definitely an interesting setting. This was the first time I'd ever stepped foot in the place, even though I'd heard good things in the past. It's quite dark inside, with lighting from candles and the bright stained glass windows decorating the walls. The music seems loud at 1st but then it is technically a nightclub so what do you expect? Before we left the loud music was replaced by an acoustic guitar playing singer which was a million times better! Anyway, I started with a peach(?) Bellini and the baked camembert which was tasty, despite the massive calorie count (oops). Gordon had duck spring rolls - I had a bite and they were so good!
For main Gordon had the Soul Burger with bacon, which looked gorgeous! I went for the pulled pork skillet - it wasn't what I expected, but was so much better! The pork was honestly amazing, although there was far too much for me. It could probably of fed 2, if not 3 people. But oh my god it was good. I'd definitely recommend trying it, just don't have a starter first! We had no room for pudding so washed it all down with a classic Cosmopolitan. My fave! The staff were friendly and we were really pleased with the service and atmosphere overall - so much that we might pop in again next weekend!
If you get a chance you should really try the food at Soul :)
