A Day at the Races | My Perfect Outfit

Hello Lovelies,

In the not too distant future my cousin is having her hen-do at Newmarket Race Course and I think it's a Ladies Day so the dress code is pretty fancy! I usually really struggle with fancy as I'm not particularly girly when it comes to my shape and size (broad shoulders and muscular thighs are not elegant). However I've found these little lovelies that should help me to feel dressed for the occassion. As you can of course tell, it's all very pale pink, this is on purpose as I'll have to avoid colours too close to white for her wedding so I wanted to go all out! It'll also highlight any tan that I may have which I also love.

One tip that my Mum gave me was to wear wedges or a block heel, there's a lot of grass on a racecourse and too often do you see pictures in the newspaper of women looking completely elegant other than the fact that they're sinking into the gound - not a good look.

I was also told that I need to wear a hat, which I'm not too confident with as I'm only 20 and I don't know if hats are a little too old for me, but I did find this lovely fascinator on the Coast website that I think will fit the part, and I love wearing flowers in my hair when it's curled so that's my hairdo sorted!

Have you ever been to the races before? If so, please give me some tips as to whether this is acceptable as I'm so nervous!

love and kisses
