Getting Ascot Ready

Now we’re reaching the glamorous side of summer it’s all about dressing for those occasions, be it the races, weddings, garden parties or a niche social event, clearly we want to be looking our best. As of next week I’ll be attending Ascot for two days followed by a friends 40th garden party and my fathers 80th Birthday Celebration. Whilst I’m excited to be out socialising and having fun, it does leave me questioning what to wear. If I had the budget I’d be straight to the shops, or would I? To be honest I do have a number of beautiful dresses and two-pieces which can be restyle for these events. Here’s three of my favourite floral dresses which I’m thinking of re-working this summer.

Phase Eight Dresses

Juniper Two Layer Floral Dress, Louise Floral Dress, Botanical Scuba Top and Botanical Scuba Skirt

I’ve found through trial and error that Phase Eight is definitely the best destination for timeless occasion dresses, so much so, you can easily re-work an outfit season after season, year after year. You’ll have a happy bank balance and a workable wardrobe, no-one wants so spend money on a one hit wonder. Take these Phase Eight floral items; the Juniper Two Layer Floral Dress, Louise Floral DressBotanical Scuba Top and Botanical Scuba Skirt – either one of these can be reworked for Ascot. I have purposely picked accessories which can be styled into each look.

Eva Satin Clutch BagJoy Fascinator

This Eva Satin Clutch Bag is an elegant satin clutch bag with pleat detailing on the front. I love the fact that you can wear it two ways, as a clutch or as a bag due to the slim shoulder chain and a clip fastening. The Joy Fascinator is perfect to complete your look. The beautiful mesh fascinator, set on a comfortable headband with bow and feather extensions add elegance and class instantly to finish your occasion style.

What do you think? Which dress should I wear for day one at Ascot? Find out via my instagram account on Wednesday to see my finished look and to follow my day at the races!
