Pony up 

Good morning my horse racing aficionados,

This past weekend I spent an awesome day at the races for ladies day which was so much fun. For those of you who know me personally, you would know that I love any excuse to get dressed up so when the invite came through to go, I jumped at the chance 😀

In the past I’ve been to ladies day at Ascot in the U.K where fashion is extravagant and edgy but all with an air of sophistication. From the moment I got to Doomben racecourse I was in full scout mode for anyone who I thought looked chic and venue appropriate. Below are some of my favourite looks from the day. 

Ladies day isn’t just for the women to steal the show…




It’s amazing what a pop of colour in a suit jacket or trouser can do to stop you in your tracks. The variations in prints too from the classic navy stripe pyjama style shirt to the tartan check really made these dashing gentleman stand out to me. Also, kudos definitely go out to the tasseled loafers and some of the interesting eyewear seen here – who said glasses cannot be an outfit enhancer 😀

All on the head…


What would the races be without headwear and wow there were some awe inspiring creations to behold on the green. I just loved the confidence of the black and grey jauntily placed fascinator with those divine cat eye sunglasses and also how the blue and purple head piece above really steals the show against the white dress and classic Chanel 2.55 – pure and regal. 

More than one can be done…


I really love how even though we are all unique and plan our outfits individually, some groups of friends or couples have an incredible ability to complement each other without even trying. The light and dark contrasts compared to the shocking yellow and floral print really worked wonderfully together and also I’m a huge believer in the couple who dresses well together, stay together 😀

Friends to be revered…

Now it’s time to give my friends their times to shine, I mean look how amazing these girlies look – from the glowing mumma to be to the Canadian lovelies rocking their lame and flirty floral headbands, the azure lace to the winter whites and also the asymmetrical wonderment, I felt proud to be spending my day with this awesome bunch. 

Women rule the world…



Ladies day wouldn’t be ladies day without the stars of the show and wow did these women not disappoint. I just loved the subtle accessorising of the fur stole to bring the outfit together or the lace headpieces which either offer a exciting contrast or match another element of their outfit completely. The use of colour in the pastel pink or the cobalt blue or even just the black is best all worked perfectly. It was great to see some of these beautiful women heeded the theme of floral and feminine also and I’m sure you agree their effort really should be applauded, they all looked spectacular 😀

Well my wonderful followers, if you are planning to head to Stradbroke day this weekend or other racing events later in the year, hopefully the outfits I have captured here can give you some inspiration on what dressing for the races either here or in the UK is all about. Be brave, be bold and most of all be BEAUTIFUL ❤️


Until next time, take care
