Dress in blue at Royal Ascot 2014

Dress in blue at Royal Ascot 2014

 

Starting next week Royal Ascot 2014 is THE biggest event of the year! It is one event I always wanted to attend but never managed to get too because of the lack of holidays left while I was at work or the lack of childcare when I was off work.

I love watching it at TV though maybe not as much because of the races (although I do bet every year on one horse or another) but a LOT for admiring the outfits the ladies are wearing.  I specially look at the hats I must admit. I think it’s the only time of the year when I am so much into hats actually.

I remember one year I actually went shopping with two of my friends and colleagues as we had planned to all go together. But as it happens an emergency at work stopped me from going on my desired day and I end up not going.

When shopping for such events like this most of the ladies tend to buy the most expensive dresses, shoes and hats on the market but you don’t have to do so. Plus most of the time it ends up raining anyway.

So for the ones that want to stick with a budget I put together the below outfit for you:

 

 

 I did struggled to find cheaper accessories for this outfit but in the end I managed. I wanted to have everything  under £100 but under £110n is pretty good still don’t you think? My favourite item out of all the above are the shoes of course. They are also the cheapest product from the set too at only £19.99.

For the one of you that don’t have a budget I put together a more expensive outfit that if I am really honest I don’t think I will ever be able to afford it.

 

 

My favourite from the above is the purse. So chic! Hope you like the outfits I put together just for you my readers. I am hoping that in the next couple of years I will be able to finally attend the event with my girlfriends or my husband.

 

Are you going to Royal Ascot this year or maybe you have an outfit you can share with me?

 

If you do go to the event this year then I hope you will have lots of fun and drink lots of champagne!
