Today Matt and I visited the Abbey House Museum in Leeds. Wandering around it’s beautifully recreated Victorian streets is a wonderful way to while away a Sunday morning. The museum had even embraced the spirit of the Olympics and were exhibiting photo’s of the residents of Leeds competing at various sporting events throughout the ages. The black and white photograph shows a group of male gymnasts who won first prize at the 1913 Imperial Scoutcraft Exhibition in Birmingham.
As the sun was shining after we left the museum we popped across the road for a walk around the ruins of Kirstall Abbey, which was formerly a medieval monastery. Luckily we made it back to Wakefield before the downpour started and to end a really good morning we treated ourselves to burger and chips at Handmade Burger.
As the sunshine has appeared to give way to autumnal outbursts again I decided to team my summery, floral dress from People Tree with a thick pastal cardigan and leggings from Next. That way I could remain summery yet cosey. I’m loving my new dress as not only is the ethical fabric super soft the pattern and cut of the dress means it’s suitable for a number of occasions. It was also a sale bargain so I received 40% off the original price.
