I was contacted by EtailPR* to see if I wanted to take part in their Cheltenham Racecourse Ladies Day competition called #ColourMeMarch. It's not what I usually do but I thought it would be fun to take part in the challenge. I can't actually go to the races, as it takes place on Wednesday 11th March and I'll be working but I thought it would be fun to take part nonetheless!
I didn't have time to actually pull outfits from my wardrobe and try them on for you, but that made it even more fun for me because I got to go browsing on all the websites for bits, which is good because I don't actually own the one thing needed for the races...a fascinator! Growing up I always saw people wearing fascinators on TV for the races and thought what on earth are those, I was never sure if I liked them or not. And I certainly never thought I'd be choosing one myself, but I digress lets get on to the outfit!
As you can tell from the hashtag it's all about colour, now I'm the type of person who wears black on a daily basis but I do love injecting a pop of colour in to my outfits. For me the races have always been about getting dressed up, some I feel for these things colour is totally appropriate. I felt this dress would be perfect for the occasion, granted it's a little bold but I think it would work nicely against my skin tone. Plus I just love most of the dresses from AX Paris - they do the nicest things!
I'd pair the dress with simple strappy black shoes and a black clutch bag. I'd of course have a black fascinator to top off my whole look! I chose a simple one because as interesting as the huge ones look, they are really not my thing.
