Exquisite fashion, endless champagne, amazing photo ops—that pretty much sums up the coveted event that is the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic. Ever since I first heard about it a few years back, it’s been on my bucket list. So this year, I decided to gather up some of my favorite blogger babes @somethinginspiredblog, @mylifesemily and @lucismorsels and head for the Will Rogers State Park to see if it really lived up to all the hype. Spoiler alert: it did.
The event took place at a beautiful polo field in the Santa Monica mountains and was basically a champagne-lover’s dream. Veuve Clicquot branded umbrellas, merchandise, photo installations and lawn games filled the grounds. And of course, all the champagne and rose you could ever want. We set our blanket out overlooking the field and enjoyed some charcuterie and bubbly while watching the polo match.
Even though this event is obviously centered around champagne (and polo, I guess), the fashion is equally as important. I literally spent about a month planning my outfit, gathering inspiration from last year’s most stylish blogger attendees like Sincerely Jules and Damsel in Dior. I finally spotted the Amelia Dress by For Love and Lemons on Revolve (on sale, nonetheless) and fell in LOVE. For Love and Lemons is definitely my new go-to when it comes to occasion pieces. Their designs are feminine and romantic with just the right amount of modern flair. And the fit—don’t even get me started. It’s like this dress was made for me. I loved the off-the-shoulder cut and the colors were P E R F E C T. I paired it with some block-heel sandals from Urban Outfitters, my D’Blanc x Amuse Society white sunnies and the blogger-favorite Cult Gaia Ark bag, which I had just been waiting for an excuse to buy.
It was so fun to see everyone else’s looks too—even the guys totally committed to the garden-party-meets-kentucky-derby dress code. The hats alone were something to be impressed with. And my girl gang totally brought it, as per usual.
All in all, the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic certainly did not disappoint. Though, if I had to do one thing differently for next year, I might splurge for VIP tickets to the Rose Garden. At $400 a pop, it’s definitely an investment, but one that I think will be well worth it!
