Royal Ascot 2015




 I am back with another Ascot post, for those of you who follow my blog you would have seen my post last year about my first trip to Royal Ascot. This year we attended ladies day. For those of you who don't know, Royal Ascot takes place every year, thousands of people attend the Ascot racecourse to watch some of the most famous Jockeys ride some really amazing horses and win different trophy's. This type of event takes place every other week at Ascot usually, but this particular week the Queen attends the racecourse with other members of the Royal family to watch her horses ride. 

It's not something I ever thought I would enjoy, but it's a lovely day out and going with my sisters makes it even better. Boohooo always seem to cater perfectly to my racing day attire, two years running I have bought a dress from them for Ascot. I'm such a Boohoo groupie.

This year I opted for something free flowing, this lovely white dress was perfect. Simple but elegant, pictures don't do it justice to be honest, but it was the perfect fabric and fit to keep me cool and comfortable all day. 

The fascinator was from Accessorize (£20) I didn't go all out on the hat this year, but if I go again next year I plan to find the most out there hat possible. My fave shoes are from Forever 21, they are not the most comfortable which is annoying, but the trusty sandle's came to the rescue when it all got a bit too much.

We got to the racecourse at about half ten and found a spot on the lovely grass to consume the massive picnic we had brought with us. The royal parade started about two and yes that little lady in that hat is the queen and the man in the grey you ask? Her husband.


We spent the rest of the day eating and getting merry, watching the racing was amazing, its nothing like watching it on Tv. I would advise anyone to experience Royal Ascot at least once in their lives, it's a great experience if you're in to all of that stuff.

Did you go to Ascot this year? Let me know your experience.
