A Day At The Races

It's the weekend! Yay, finally.  Hope you're all spending it doing something fun.  I am going to be looking at house stuff again this weekend, it seems there is something that can stop me hitting Topshop!  Gray has formed the opinion that I am happy as long as I am shopping regardless of what I am shopping for... I couldn't possibly comment on that!

Talking of fun things to do, Cheltenham Ladies Day takes place at the end of March, Ladbrokes have challenged me to create a couple of outfits fit for the occasion.  I don't need an excuse to look at pretty dresses now do I?!

French Connection always make fabulous occasionwear so I headed straight there for the first dress.  As you know I am loving the monochrome trend right now so thought it was only right that I should base the outfit around this bold striped number.  Wedges are always a better idea than heels, you can then guarantee you won't be getting your heel stuck in the grass if the weather doesn't hold out!  I kept on the monochrome theme with the clutch bag and the subtle spots on the fascinator.  I do love an excuse to wear ridiculous headwear!

Shoes: New Look
Clutch Bag: Oasis
Fascinator: Accessorize

I've gone for a more girly look with my second outfit.  Another cute dress from French Connection this time teamed with a pretty fascinator, pink block heeled shoes and a simple clutch finished off with a massive co-ordinating bow!  I always head straight to Accessorize if I am looking for a cool fascinator, they are always a bit different from the run of the mill fascinators available on the high street.

Shoes: asos
Clutch Bag: Ted Baker
Fascinator: Accessorize

Are you planning on going to the races this year? What do you make of my picks?

*In collaboration with Ladbrokes*



  1. They're both absolutely gorgeous, especially the first one. Don't know how suitable they'd be for Cheltenham in March though - tends to be more on the tweed and warm coats side of things at that time of year!

  2. That first dress is absolutely gorgeous! Not that the second one isn't, but the first one is certainly the best. Xo

  3. Loving French Connection dresses right now. Love this post.

  4. I love these outfits, that second pair of shoes is gorgeous!
