Trooping of the Colour - Saturday 16th June

Another day, another Royal Event! This time it was the Trooping of the Colour an annual parade held at the Horses Guard to mark the birthday of the Queen. The dress code for this event was the most relaxed of the three royal events on our schedule and merely said ‘day dress, no denim’. Simple right?
I decided to go for a comfortable black dress, as there was a lot of sitting and walking, a white blazer to add a summery touch, mid-heel nude shoes for comfort, my beautiful new pale pink Radley bag and blue beads for a splash of colour. At the last minute as I was rushing out the door I threw on my favourite zara scarf as I suspected the weather may turn nasty. The scarf turned out to be an inspired moment as it was indeed freezing, windy and at times a little wet, but besides which I think it gave my monochrome outfit a lovely splash of colour.
