It’s finally here! Sunshine has made it’s official debut in London and although we can never be too sure if the rain and cloudy days are over for good, I sure am going to take advantage of every single minute I can to soak up the oh-so-glorious sun.
One of my favourite things about Summer time in England is enjoying sunny days out, and they don’t come much more British that a day at Royal Ascot. Although I have to admit that the horse racing isn’t my number one reason for attending (although it is great fun!), the day out makes for the perfect excuse to celebrate Summer by taking some of me favourite new season pieces out of the wardrobe for the first time.
Ascot is the perfect excuse to dress up, so I chose my prettiest and most elegant new favourite; this embroidered floral dress from Ted Baker. The stunning embroidered white petal details give this dress a nod to the Spring and Summer trends but without being too overwhelming, and the fit and flare shape is my absolute favourite silhouette for a dressy occasion. With the neutral shade of the dress, I a statement bracelet from the latest Swarovski stardust collection in a sophisticated navy shade, the tiny crystals within the fishnet tube are a modern way of wearing the sparkling beads, while still making a stylish statement. I also chose the timeless Daytime White Watch from Swarovski, which is an accessory that I’ve been reaching for on special occasions as well as on an ever day bases. The white silver dial is set with 48 clear crystals, and the calfskin leather strap give this watch a feminine and ladylike look.
My bag is my absolute favourite Rebecca Minkoff Marble tote bag, which just seems to be the perfect piece for every occasion, whether a day trip or a special occasion, it’s been my favourite purchase of 2015 so far!
