This year was extra special as I was invited to take part in the best dressed parade on both Saturday and Sunday. Much to my surprise I came second on Saturday, I had my friends cheering me on in the tent and I was wearing a dress that I had made which made it extra special. My mum was like a proud pushy parent as she's wanted me to be in the parade for years, she would see the photos on Facebook and go "why aren't you in this?! why haven't they taken your photo?". Well mum, they have now!

I had initially just put the headscarf on to protect my hair from the moisture that was in the air in the morning, but ended up keeping it on all day after being photographed for best dressed in it! Headscarves are one of my trademarks, I wear them purely to stop my hair frizzing up though - such vanity!
The rest of the weekend was spent catching up with friends and taking in all of the sights and sounds of the Revival. I was pleased to find that the Mini's were back in the St Mary's Trophy as it is my favourite race. I always pitch up at the start and finish as the roar of the cars when the race starts is amazing.
On the Sunday I wore the 1960s dress suit that I wore the previous year, this time teaming it with a gorgeous Welsh tapestry cape that I bought at the revival the year before. I love this suit and it doesn't get nearly enough wear!
The absolute highlight of Sunday for me was meeting Foale and Tuffin, they were guest judges in the best dressed parade and I had no idea they were going to be there. I managed to grab a quick photo with them before they left and they were so lovely.
I'm looking forward to doing it all again next year! You can view previous years outfits here.
