A Day at the Races

Last week I got the opportunity to put my glad-rags on and spend the day at the races, it was a whole new experience for me and I had such a great time.

Hearing everyone else talk about their experience at the races makes them sound like such glamorous affairs, sipping champagne whilst wearing the most beautiful dresses and fascinators. I have to say it did not disappoint and it was right up my street I had such a fabulous time and cannot wait to go again.


A trip to the races also meant a new dress was in order, I was a bit bored of playing it safe so decided that it was time to go for a different style and to revamp my wardrobe a little. Scanning all the online retailers it wasn't long before this beautiful crochet number caught my eye, originally it was the white version which drew me in but that was one step a little too far, being quite a clumsy person meant it was not the wisest idea so the black one had to be the best bet. 

Usually I am not a fan of the midi length, for me and my body shape, it cuts my legs in half making me look stumpy and we all know that it isn't a good look. However I am in LOVE with this dress, even thought the crochet is quite heavy and stiff it dropped beautifully from the cinched in waist and flowed out elegantly.

I teamed the dress why my trusty nude heels, clutch bag and added a pop of colour with the burgundy fascintor.
