My First Royal Ascot Experience
For me, Royal Ascot has always been one of those ‘bucket list’ outings, and this year I finally got to tick that box. In light of its ever so slightly complicated and nuanced dress code and hat-shape rules, I went for a monochrome lace jumpsuit, black fascinator, and a classic red lip for the final day of the prestigious racing event. Simples.
We were blessed with beautiful weather, despite the recent spate of torrential rain, and I won a whopping £2.48 on a horse that I backed on a whim. Ha!
I think I can safely say that Royal Ascot will be a staple on my springtime social calendar. I loved the feel-good factor and the idea of everyone making an effort- especially people like myself and my girls, who can usually be found wearing mismatched gym attire and trainers on any given day.
