Outfit For A Day At The Races

Outfit For A Day At The Races

Today was one of my friends 18th birthdays so a small group of us went to the races in Lingfield. The sun was shining most of the time and we had such a lovely day. I bet on a few horses but sadly didn't win anything back. Although the fact that I was even allowed to bet and I wasn't asked for ID was enough for me. We had fish and chips for lunch and then had a pick and mix later on which I had forgotten how much I loved. 

There was such a wide variety of fashion as the races with some people in jeans and jumpers and others in dresses, blazers and hats. I was definitely dressed more towards the smarter end but I don't get the chance to dress up that often and I really wanted to make the most of it. 

The dress I'm wearing is one I have had for a few years from Primark which I think is flattering and not too in your face. I then paired it with my statement necklace from Assessorize, my heels from Faith and a thin brown woven belt. The bag that I used is from a brand called marc b and it is amazing how many different compartments it has and how much stuff it can hold. On top of all my other necessities I also carried around a spare pair of loafers in case my heels got too painful. Sounds clever but then I realised that if I wanted to take my heels off they wouldn't fit in the bag so I would have to carry them round and look really silly! The coat that I am wearing is from River Island and it is one of my favourite new coats for Spring. It's a really pale pink fur coat and it kept me really warm when it got a bit windy but it's still thin enough to wear when it gets a bit warmer. 

Hope you like this post and my outfit. Let me know if you have ever been to the races and if so what did you decide to wear. xx
