It might still be freezing but spring was definitely in the air when Chloe and I took our mum out to celebrate Mother’s Day at the weekend. As she had to open the shop on Sunday, we decided to spend Saturday treating her in Bath. We started our day off with a coffee at the café in the Holburne Museum, one of our favourite spots in Bath to while away a Saturday morning.
We then made our way into the centre of Bath, stopping in a park to take a few outfit photos among the daffodils. I found this dress in the sale in New Look but it could easily be mistaken for vintage rather than highstreet. The angular cut, retro pattern and swing fit make it look like it’s straight out of the sixties, especially when styled with a polo neck, woollen tights and statement earrings.
As it started to rain, we sought shelter in the Victoria Art Gallery and took a look around Grayson Perry’s exhibition ‘The Vanity of Small Differences’. Featuring six of his iconic large scale tapestries, the exhibition narrates a story examining class and consumerism in contemporary culture. Full of detail and symbolism, the tapestries are truly captivating. They really make you think about the dangers of being driven by a desire for materialistic possessions and warns against being blinded by brands, both as an individual and as a society. If you find yourself in Bath, it’s well worth a visit.
Feeling suitably cultured, we went for lunch and spent the afternoon mooching around the shops. It was a really lovely day and the perfect way to spend quality time with each other. I hope you all had a great Mother’s Day and were able to let your mum’s know how much you appreciate them.
