For me, Ladies Day at the races is right up there with afternoon tea on my ‘fabulously girly things to do’ list – get super dressed up during the day, have some yummy food, a cheeky glass or two of fizz and a great giggle with friends. Pretty perfect right?
This year I’m really excited to be attending my first ever #LadbrokesLadiesDay at Doncaster Racecourse. I visited the course last year for the opening day races and was really impressed by how comprehensive it is.
So the next debate of course is: what the flip do I wear?!?! I feel very conflicted- as both a Gemini and a blogger I feel I have this split personality with my clothing as to which side I want to embrace on any given day. Sooooooo……in mind of that I’ve picked out two looks to choose between
This is my ‘blogger’ look- the dress is a flattering cut and appropriately covered up, but this fabulous holographic print makes it a beautiful quirky standout piece. Because of the changing shades in the material I picked different shades of pink in the accessories to highlight both and still tone in, I kept them the same colour as it felt like it would be too busy if there was yet another colour in the mix. No hat of any description; firstly because it may make the look feel too busy as well, but secondly, where on Earth would I find one that would go?!?!
Look 2 – JennyChat at the Races
This look embraces more of the super girly Jenny- I adore skate style dresses as they flatter my shape a lot better, this netted skirt is ridiculously cute but not OTT and this gorge lace detailing makes it feel really beautiful and demure for a formal event. I toyed with the idea of going for powder blue accessories but I stuck with black as I wanted the shade to be a perfect match to keep focu on the dress. The covered in heels will also keep my feet warm if it’s a little chilly! Again no hay with this, I think a fabulous up do would be the perfect option here.
No race day outfit should go ahead with these babies

Hope you like my looks, which side do you think I should embrace?
