My First Polo Event...







Dress: c/o Hedonia. Shoes: Zara. Watch: Guess. Ring: Alex Monroe. Bracelet: c/o A box for my Treasure. Necklace: Vintage
I'm going to a polo event in a few weekends time with Daniel and his work. To say I'm nervous would be an understatement, it’s quite out of my comfort zone and although I’ll be going with Daniel he’ll be off networking and talking with his clients. I am probably just going to eat too much food and try my best to not look completely out of place. Nerves aside I think the Polo will be really good fun! I love horses and used to ride when I was younger so I am looking forward to it (she says with shaky knees).

Of course this post is all about the outfit and I’m trialing this one as an option of what to wear. I don’t really ‘do’ heels and I’m not sure kitten heels are the best choice bearing in mind that this event will be in a field and with our weather it’s likely it will pour with rain – however I don’t own a pair of wedges and I would rather buy a kitchen table than a new pair of shoes at the moment (my goodness, what is happening to me).
Regardless I am so in love with this dress – it’s the perfect summer piece. The fabric/cut is quite sturdy and formal but relaxed enough to still feel fun and summery. I love the prom style dresses and the contrasting lace panels make it that little bit different. I’m hoping the sun will stay out so I can wear it to a few birthday BBQ’s! I thought I would add a few of my staple jewellery pieces along with this beautiful little bracelet from a box for my treasure - the lovely lady behind the magic, Judith uses semi-precious stones to create her beautifully nature inspired pieces. I absolutely love it :)

So, have you been to a Polo event before? Is this outfit getting the seal of Polo approval or do I need to keep on my search?

That dress is beautiful and those shoes are gorgeous! I've never been to a polo event so I can't really give much advice but I think your outfit looks lovely - just hope for some sunshine and not-very-muddy grass! :)

That dress is absolutely gorgeous! I love the shoes too, although they might not be the best shoes for Polo. I go a few times a year and I always recommend smart flats or smart/casual wedges, as heels (even kitten heels) tend to look a bit OTT. You don't want to get nice shoes ruined, as if you're standing on grass all day and it's wet it can be pretty messy.

Polo is fairly relaxed, most women tend to wear a pretty dress but make it look more 'daywear' and casual with less formal accessories like flats/wedges and a big handbag rather than a clutch etc. However if you're in a corporate area it may be different! Flats and wedges are easier to stomp the divots with too ;)

Hope that helps, if you have any questions please do just ask! :)

Which Polo are you going to?

I'm back! :P

I think this dress is really pretty, I love the two detailed sections as I'm quite partial to lace; it looks so elegant and feminine.

I hope you enjoyed the event :)

Natalie said...

I adore your dress! Though I've never been to a polo match, I'm not sure those kitten heels are the best choice (as gorgeous as they are!) I'm pretty sure that a nice pair of flats would be good for polo, so maybe try that!

You look lovely, I love the shoes but maybe a smart flat would be better in case you end up sinking in to the mud (it's happened to me before.) the dress is gorgeous too.

This dress is gorgeous! It reminds me of a vintage inspired night dress I bought earlier this week (which you could totally brave and wear in the day too!). Pale pastel blue and lace is such a great look - love your style :)
