Considered THE Garden Party of the racing season, what better way to hold your own mini Glorious Goodwood party with a picnic in the park or in your own garden.
Dress code for Goodwood is more relaxed than the other racecourses which is perfect for an outdoors party so think comfortable and maybe cool boho chic.
Hayley Menzies’ Paisley Tier Maxi Dress is in 100% crisp cotton. Price £420.
The loose cut will billow in the breeze in a carefree style ideal for outdoor picnics and a refreshing glass of Pimm’s.
Puff sleeves add to the maxi’s ’70s retro vibe whilst also being one of the top modern trends for this summer.
Go natural with Branch Jewellery’s Hand Carved White Wood Link Earrings Price £60.
All their jewellery is produced in Indonesia using traditional methods by local craftsmen. The wood used is left completely natural using no varnish, polish or colour stain, just beeswax to condition it. This makes each piece individual.
With a Les Georgettes bracelet you can wear it three ways! You might say three bracelets for the price of one.

Here in gold finish with a reversible Royal Blue/Mermaid Pink leather insert.
