Yesterday was the last day of June, and the last of my 'big' summer events. Looking back at my blog posts in June, you can see how many truly amazing events I attended, and I feel so unbelievably lucky. So, did Henley deliver and round of an incredibly month? Duh, of course!!
Thanks to a friend, we nabbed tickets to the fancy-pants Stewards Enclosure, so set off early yesterday morning to make the most of the day. I wore the DKNY draped jersery dress I was supposed to wear for Ascot (I changed my Ascot dress last minute to the black and white LK Bennett one), and obviously I just had to wear my Yull Shoes with it, as they match perfectly with the colours! We arrived around 10am, and straight away the Fashion Police were out in force, checking every woman's skirt length, and we even saw them turning away a woman wearing a knee-length dress! Phewf, thank goodness mine was below the knee! We watched a couple of races before walking the entire mile and a half down to the start line, (Stewards Enclosure is at the finish line) stopping off for yummy pancakes on the way, before walking all the way back...so yes, I walked 3 miles, in heels..
The day was fabulous, we had the most amazing picnic spread, the rowing itself was fantastic, and we even had home-made scones for afternoon tea! Thankfully after a bit of a wet morning the weather turned out glorious - it was very relaxing sitting on the riverside in the deckchairs with the sun out. But unfortuntely I got rather sunburnt, so am now covering myself in Aloe Vera.
My beautiful Yull Primrose Shoes!
Towards the end of the day we slummed it and headed to the Regatta Enclosure to meet up with a couple of friends.
It really was a fantastic day. Thank you June, for being such an epic month! Now onto July...you'll find out about what I get up to in July towards the end of the month ;)
