I was recently lucky enough to be accepted into the etailPR Blogger Network and stumbled upon their campaign for the Cheltenham Races Ladies Day which is on the 11th March. Although I’m unable to attend the event itself I love an excuse for a bit of online browsing 🙂 and so I’ve put together an outfit that looks off into the distance, to Spring!
I really can’t wait for spring and for the weather to get warmer, so the outfit that I’ve put together would be perfect for those days when it’s sunny and you are in the mood to wear some bright colours!
I went for a coral strapless lace dress (£40 from River Island), as this colour stands out from the crowd and the way that the lace falls below the hem is really beautiful. I have always loved lace dresses like this, that aren’t too restricting like the long sleeve versions you can sometimes get. This would also be very comfortable if you are standing by the racecourse cheering on your horse! (GO JIMMY GO, I imagine there’s a jockey somewhere called Jimmy).
I’m most definitely not a hat person, this statement stretches to fascinators too so instead to accessorise I’ve gone for a statement coral and gold necklace (£12 from Accessorise), and a simple black clutch bag (£28 from Topshop) that can have the handle looped around the wrist. This means once again when cheering on your horse, you can wave your arms in the ayer like you just don’t cayer, without spilling your 101 beauty ‘essentials’ all over the grass.
Finally, these slingback cream court shoes (£17.99 from New Look) are probably not the most practical part of the outfit but damn would they look good. Just hope that it doesn’t rain the night before…and to combat the grass you can get some of those heel add ons that appeared in Dragons Den that let you walk on grass without sinking! Genius!
