Fun days out

A Trip Back in Time

Hello,

I hope you are well. I just wanted to share a few pictures from a lovely day out I enjoyed recently. My mum, cousin Cassie and I attended Leyburn 1940s Weekend in Wensleydale. Leyburn is already one of my favourite places to visit because it boasts a fantastic charity shop, where I have found some amazing bargains over the years. The shop is raising funds for St Teresa’s Hospice and is definitely worth checking out if you are in that part of the world. There is also a lovely homeware shop called Serindipity, with an equally lovely tearoom.

And every July this wonderful town gets even better as it hosts a fantastic 1940s event, full of the fashion, music and dancing of the era. There are also vintage stalls, classic cars, history displays and re-enactments.

This year, I dressed for the occasion with a dress my Aunty Adele gave me. It is a BHS dress, most likely from the 1980s or 1990s, but I thought it had a forties feel. The necklace was my grandmas and my shoes are from Clarks. I also attempted victory rolls. They turned out a bit messy but it was certainly an improvement on last time.

It was a lovely day, which was made even better by two things. Firstly, I bought a handmade fascinator to wear to my friend Katie’s wedding at the weekend; and, secondly, we had tea and cake at an Alice in Wonderland themed tearoom. Perfect!
