In celebration of all things occasion wear and the warmer Spring weather, Wallis had kindly invited me to spend a day out at Ascot along with a few other lovely bloggers. Since I had moved to London two and a half years ago, attending Ascot had always high-up on my list of events – and this year, I had the opportunity to fulfil this incredible experience with British high-street brand Wallis!
The day had begun in Wallis’ Private Racing Box, with the most stunning view of the racing track and British countryside. We were lucky to have such gorgeous and warm weather on the day, and I have to say I instantly fell in love with the landscape and beauty that is the British countryside! How nice it is to get out into the open air for a day, sip on champagne and watch the races..
Before the start of the first race, Wallis had spoilt us with a delicious three-course meal, where we toasted to this celebration and got to know one another! I was there with five other lovely bloggers, Sinead from Love Style Mindfulness, Sophie from Fashion Slave, Susie from Susannah Zabelle, Imogen from Fashion Imogenation and Andreea from Stiletto Shades, along with the team at Wallis! We later enjoyed a typically British afternoon tea, as well as the highlight of the day which had to be placing our bets on the horses! It was my first time betting, so I took my chances just for the fun and ended up winning four out of my five bets!
For the day I was wearing a full look from Wallis, with a matching floral printed blazer and trousers – a trend I am really loving for Spring! I paired it with a nude fascinator and comfortable heels to tie the full look together. As it was the May Racing Weekend at Ascot, the dress code was more casual, although women were still seen in beautiful dresses and amazing hats!
Watching the races from the comfort of our Private Box was absolutely amazing, and just as much I loved heading down to the racecourse for a feel of the excitement that was given from the crowd. A day out at the races with Wallis was such a wonderful experience and I hope you will enjoy these photos!
