Grand National Ladies Day race day outfit challenge

Fascinator – House of Fraser £39
Bag – Zara £29.99

I was contacted earlier in the week offering me an opportunity to take part in a competition for Ladbrokes. They are offering two tickets to Ladies Day at Grand National and all I had to do was put together my perfect outfit, so I definitely couldn’t skip an opportunity like that!

The way I picked this outfit was to embrace the floral trend of S/S14 but still be classic Ladies Day and wearable. I looked through a lot of dresses but I kept coming back to this one, it’s so pretty and it’s an appropriate length for Ladies Day too while still being feminine and flirty.
I am absolutely in love with the heeled sandals trend at the moment with ankle straps. I think they look so delicate and remind me of the good ole’ SATC but I digress, they’re a perfect accompaniment to the dress.

Without being too ‘matchy matchy’ I picked out this blue clutch from Zara to compliment the blue flowers on the dress. It’s quite boxy and makes a statement which I like, although you probably won’t be able to fit more than your lippy and your betting slips in this one!

No trip to Ladies Day would be complete without a fascinator. I picked this one as it stays within the colour scheme and it’s not overbearing or stuffy.
