Polo at The Manor - What I Got Up To!



"Choosing what to wear....."


You'll know (unless you've been hiding under a rather large rock for the past couple of weeks!) that recently I was lucky enough to be invited to the Celtic Manor's annual event, 'Polo at the Manor'.

Having never been to this event before I was really excited to go and of course, part and parcel of the whole experience was choosing what to wear and getting ready for the event!

Knowing that it was going to be a really hot and humid day and that I'd be walking around a fair bit, I wanted something that was going to be comfortable and that I could sit down in easily.  Now as much as I love forking out for beautiful handbags and shoes, when it comes to dresses I prefer something cheap and cheerful so that I can wear it once and buy something else for the next event without the guilt factor!

I chose a gorgeous floral number from Missguided (all links at the bottom of this post in case you're interested!) and teamed it with my Sophie Hulme Bag and Valentino Rockstud heels (surprisingly comfortable - although I did stick my flats in my bag!) and of course my beloved Celine sunglasses, because hello....are you even at the Polo without a pair of sunglasses?!!



"....sink a few glasses of Prosecco in the sun!"


It was a beautiful sunny day and we arrived fairly early.  It didn't take us long to find a great seat and sink a few glasses of Prosecco in the sun! Bliss!

People watching is a must at this event, I loved seeing what everyone was wearing and everyone (both men and women!) had made such a great effort!


"Dogs & Bubbles!"


Polo aside (and I did try and understand the rules, I really did!) there was also lots of additional entertainment and places to buy snacks to keep you going throughout the day.

We opted for 'Dog & Bubbles' for our lunch.....of course! (and shamefully that is my hot dog smothered in tomato ketchup and mayonnaise.....sorry not sorry!)





"Elemis were on hand...."


Naturally, there were lots of photos being taken throughout the day and Elemis were on hand to keep everyone looking gorgeous and photo-ready all day long! Check out the Elemis bus!











16th June 2018.....


As I mentioned previously, this is an event that's held every year at the Celtic Manor Resort, in fact the date has already been set for next year (16th June 2018!) To see what's on offer and book your place check out the details HERE.  It's something a little bit different to do for the Summer and was such a lot of fun, I really really enjoyed myself and can highly recommend going!
