Lace At Polesden Lacey

A note from Joelle... 

♫ ♪ 'There She Goes' - The Las ♫ ♪

A few days ago, my mother and three sister packed up some water and a few picnic baskets and headed to watch Shakespeare's 'A Comedy of Errors' on the lawn. Polesden Lace in about a 45 minute drive from where I live, which is handy. It's a gorgeous manor house and park owned by the National Trust and is used for loads of society and seasonal events. 
Fashion-wise, my entire family wore black and white, by total coincidence! We must have looked like one of those really strict dress-code families, but I thought it was hilarious. I never wear white, so when I found this dress (which I bought at Uni, but never wore) and these sandals that I have forgotten about, I thought they would look nice together  I have had these faux-ivory sunglasses for ages and featured them many-a-time on the blog  last year.
Apologies about the picture quality, iPhones can only do so much!
Dress - an oldie from Primark
Sandals - Peacocks
Satchel - eBay
Sunglasses - H&M
There was no stage, instead a natural mound was used and 'backstage' was in the leafy forest behind the mound. I thought that was really cool.
It was boiling hot! I mean, as an African, I couldn't stand the heat and was tempted to tip my ice cold bottle of water on my head. We didn't stay for the entire play, but what we saw of it was really funny! If you live near the country, there are bound to be open-air theatres and music nights on the grounds where you live. With great weather, food and company, it makes for a great day out.
I know some of you might think that open-air plays in the country are just for rich, old people, but that really is not the case. There were people of all ages and ethnicities, which was so great to see! Despite it being too hot for us out in the field, I would come back again! They do 'Lazy Jazz Sundays', so I might be back sooner than I thought.
