GOOD TIMES AT GOODWOOD

Yesterday we piled into a convertible, dropped the top down and set off on a mini road trip to Vintage at Goodwood – and boy were we in for a treat! We hopped out at the gorgeous estate and took a moment to touch up our lippy, before following the impeccably dressed crowds over grass and through woodland to the front gates, picking up our brilliant timepiece wristbands on our way.

The setting was strewn with bunting and immaculate style; girls and boys alike were decked out in their finest, with prim hair and red lips the order of the day. A wander down the Great British High Street, hosting a Fortnum and Mason, an olde worlde cinema and a traditional English pub, was like being cast back to the 50s! We had a bit of a motor moment over the gorgeous array of vintage cars and bikes on show and are already making plans to start up our own 60s knitting group (with mandatory themed dressing, of course!)

Past the roller disco we followed the yellow brick road and spied some lovely bicycles before stopping awhile to listen to one of the many outdoor musical acts. We munched on fish and chips while watching the Grazia Best in Show parade and got excited all over again about cinched-in waists and wearing hats – something we’ll definitely be channelling next season. There were tents full of art, doll-making stands and places to sit with a nice cup of tea. After running around for a while trying to capture as many stylish girls as we could we headed over to the main stage to sing along with 80s legends Heaven 17 before heading back, tired but happy, to our car to zoom off into the sunset in headscarves and shades.
