Last week celebrated our annual office day out to Chester races and it made for the perfect excuse to dress up super pretty for the day (and night).
Having attended The Grand National earlier this year and endured hours and hours of icy rain, the better forecasted weather for the late summer race day encouraged me to shake up my style a little and try something new.
I have been absolutely loving the Bardot, off the shoulder trend that has been super popular this season therefore I knew I wanted to incorporate it into my look. I opted for a bodysuit from Misguided that sat nicely off my shoulders and pulled me in, in all the right places. I teamed it with a tulle skirt from Zara and a skinny leopard print belt as an accent accessory.
For me, the shoes were the showstoppers of my entire look and they certainly were one of those ‘meant to be moments’ having left finding some heels to the very last minute. I own only chunky, block heels that looked far too clunky for this more delicate and feminine outfit, therefore a new pair was needed (or so I tell myself). I’ll be chatting more about my Vivienne Westwood ‘Melissa’ heels soon, so if you want to know how comfortable they are to wear and more on how I found them check back then for all the details.
My ‘red lips,’ statement clutch bag is Lulu Guinness inspired but was actually super cheap online, tacky some might say but teamed with an all black ensemble and my bleach blonde hair, I felt it worked despite been slandered all day for looking a little bit like lady parts.
Unusually for me I kept my make-up and jewellery super, super minimal opting for simple stud earrings and two diamond rings paired with a very subtle smokey eye and a bold red lip look.
Have you ever been to Chester races?
