Today I went to Beverley, to search for the accessories for the WEDDING OUTFIT.
You may remember that I bought the clothes on Wednesday ? Well, I still needed a hat/fascinator and a handbag …..and, as every woman knows, accessories are often the most difficult thing to find. They are the final, carefully selected touch, that brings the whole outfit together.
Of course, I was under extra pressure as I neglected you all so badly the other day and forgot to take any photographs ……. I did not dare make the same mistake again !!
So, in bright sunshine I set off. Beverley is only a couple of miles away and so I took the bus. It is a pleasant trip, across the glorious East Yorkshire Wolds and also saves the frantic scramble for a parking space.
Skidby village looked lovely in the morning sun ……..
And soon I was enjoying the hustle and bustle of the lovely market town of Beverley …………
I visited shop after shop …..large department stores and little boutiques and saw every type of hat imaginable ….
I also saw quite a few bicycles dotted around the town …all painted and resplendent in ribbons and bows in readiness for the Great Yorkshire Cycle Race, or Tour de Yorkshire, which is to be held on the 1st to 3rd May.
Finally, I needed refreshment ……so I had coffee and a sandwich and sat in the sun, watching the world go by ………
Aha, did you spot some purchases ? Are you wondering what I bought ? Would you like a sneaky peek ?
All in all a very successful day, don’t you think ?
Before I go, I must mention two shop assistants who went the extra mile for me today….
I’m afraid I do not know their names ….but ” Thank you” to the lovely girl in the ACCESSORIZE Store in Beverley and also the equally lovely assistant in the hat/wallet department of BROWN’S of BEVERLEY You both made, what could have been a very fraught day, an absolute joy. Thank you.
