I was lucky enough to visit Royal Ascot on the 20th June which was Ladies' Day. I left for Ascot at around 8am with my Mum and Auntie and we took a 3 hour coach to Berkshire. We all felt very odd waiting at the bus stop in our Ascot attire (hats included).
The horse racing only made up a very small part of the day. We arrived at 11am and the racing did not start until 2.30pm. The Silver Ring was made up of lots of bars, stalls and food outlets.
It was so lovely to see so many people make an effort with the formal dress code. There was such a variety in outfit styles, littered with the occasional fashion faux pas.
This was my first time betting, in Race 1 my horse won! In the second race my horse came 2nd. After that my beginners luck diminished...
For the day I decided to wear my black jumpsuit with a lace blazer. I also went with felt hat as I struggled to find an inexpensive fascinator that I loved.

Revision has been a huge part of my life recently, I am now on the home straight. 5 more exams in the next 2 weeks then I am finished A-levels forever. Anthony came over for tea as a break from my revision and we took my SLR camera out for a walk as it has been gathering dust. All pictures were taken using a 50mm f/1.8 lens. I can't wait for summer I have almost 3 months of adventures to plan with my wonderful friends who have been neglected during exam season. Just praying for sunshine now! (Look away if you hate mushy couple photos...)
