A Grey day at the Races!

Hi Guys, 

Well, it feels soo nice to be blogging again! I must firstly apologise for my absence in the past week, I have literally had one of the busiest weeks at work ever and was away at the weekend so I just have not had time to get on here! #badblogger

Anyway, Today's look is from my trip to the Races on Sunday, it was a really grey rubbish day weather wise, but I still went for a summery look!

Dress- Fashion Union, Fasinator- Fashion World
Clutch- Miss Selfridge, Shoes- Newlook
Bracelets/Bangles- Forever 21

This dress is a an oldie from the back of the cupboard, but it is great to pull out for an occasion because of the lace and pearl details around the collar. And to be honest I went out to buy a new dress and all I saw was a sea of white and lace skater dresses in Topshop, River Island, Newlook, Missguided, so I decided that I was not going to spend money on virtually the same dress as I already had (yes, I showed restrain)and turned to this Fashion Union beaut. 
I love the jacquard print also, it just gives the look a bit of an edge, compared to some of the jersey fabrics I have seen and you know how much I love the colour white. I know the races are an opportunity to go wild with colour and print, but I just wanted to keep it simple. 

And you can't go to the Races without a hat or a fastinator, and this gorgeous number worked perfectly with the dress, and I do love a hair piece- the bigger the better. I liked the fact that it was all the same colour, what do you think, what have you been wearing to Weddings/Races/Occasions this summer? 

I hope you are all having a good week and adjusting to the thundery/ rainy weather? Wardrobe confusion again! Never mind, it means we can start thinking about our new season purchases! 

Happy Monday!
