I absolutely love the print of this dress. I resisted buying it when I first saw it on asos because I'm not at all religious, but when it went down to only £14 in the sale I caved in. I might not be religious, but I really can appreciate the beauty of stained glass windows and I love visiting old churches and cathedrals.
This week we headed into our home city and went for a walk along the river banks and around the cathedral and it seemed like the perfect opportunity to wear this dress. I may be slightly biased, but I love our Cathedral. I have visited a lot of religious buildings all over the world and nothing quite compares. It brings back so many nostalgic memories of climbing to the top with my mum when I was only a little girl and going for our school carol service before Christmas each year. It's hard to get your head round the fact that it was built in 1093! I remember doing a project on it in school and for some reason that date has always stuck in my head.
I have been really enjoying days out with my husband and baby girl. I haven't been a party animal for a good few years and it's obviously a lot harder to go out for drinks these days, but I love nothing more than going for breakfast, lunch or cake, especially cake and a walk and I cannot wait for picnic weather to finally arrive!
