Royal Ascot 2015: We're Off to the Races!

Shoes: Corso Como

This weekend was the most FABULOUS day of the British summer social season - Day 5 of the Royal Ascot!! I went with a group of ex-pat American friends and we had a wonderful time together! The ladies all wore stunning hats and the gentlemen wore top hats and together we saw the Queen arrive in her carriage, had British tea at the Ascot's Queen Anne tea room, shared buckets of Pimms (a traditional British alcholic drink mixed with fruit and served only during the summer) and champagne, placed bets on all the races and survived a British thunderstorm and downpour that hit right as we were trying to get the train back to London. This is one of the classic British experiences and I HIGHLY recommend it!!
