Outfit to watch cricket on Sat

(16 Posts)

Going to watch new B/f play cricket on Sat with a bbq afterwards.

It's a local team playing in the grounds of a lovely country house.

Is a navy and white summer dress which comes just above the knee ok.

Planning on bare legs, but not sure about shoes.

Are heels ok (and if a prob in the grass just take them off)?

Wedges better than heels

Dress sounds perfect

Do take a hat and make sure you apply suncream

Have'nt got wedges - would flat sandals be better or barefeet.

Flat as long as not minging/scruffy will be fine. Barefoot always makes me wary in case of treading on a bee!

Thanks had'nt thought of that.

Only mentioned it because one of the other girls is going barefoot with a long summery dress.

I readthepaper watch DH play in all sorts of cricket matches . Mostly people seem to dress down but on a hot day with a party afterwards you stripy dress sounds perfect with casual sandals though.

Take a cardi. Cricket God on a long time and when it gets later in evening or if wind blows it can be freezing!

Take a camping chair, a fleece blanket and warm layers just in case. Cricket goes on for hours!

Reader, I married my cricket date smile

Thanks for all the help.

It's a lovely day here so am wearing the dress as mentioned with heels - hopefully the grass won't be a prob.

The grass will be a problem! We olden cricket wives can spot a new g/f a mile off: heels; no coat / cardigan / pashmina (lots of grounds have a chilly wind whipping through, and it will get cold later on anyway); expensive bag (you want something you can put on the ground without worrying about it). smile

grin Closer, today I will we wearing jeans, loafers & a warm jacket and sitting comfortably in the clubhouse when it gets chilly

Exactly, control

OP - the girl going barefoot is bonkers, BTW. Apart from the nasties in the grass, I've yet to find a club house that I would walk in barefoot - and you will still need to go to the loo and walk on a couple of bits of road won't you?

Other tip is to find out what happens at tea time - is it just players? Can partners partake?At the same time, or afterward?

You can go for a walk around the perimeter rope to stretch your legs, but never walk behind the sight screen when game is in play

Clap when other people clap. Ignore tantrums

Don't ask "are we winning" or "when do you think it will be over "

Have fun!

And if he's out for a duck and walks off with his head down don't rush over and say "well I thought you were wonderful darling". wink

Yes grass is a prob - having a good time though.
