#MostStylishRaceGoer at Newbury Races?

ladies day at newbury races

I was invited to Ladies Day at Newbury Racecourse this weekend, as a fun bloggers' day out. Having never been to the races, the sunshine scheduled in, I set about buying a hat!

I started the train journey in a traditional fashion - with cocktails in a can! There really is no other way to travel.

I wore a Horrockses Fashions dress, a vintage brand that has just relaunched with a new range. It was originially £125, but is currently on sale at £87. It definitely feels expensive to wear, the material is thick, which means it hangs without flying up in the wind, always a plus with this style of dress.

We were given a free bet, and having never bet on a horse before I found the staff helpful, but sadly we didn't win anything. Our horse didn't even place. Whoops!

The lure of an £8000 trip to the Seychelles meant that I entered the #MostStylishRaceGoer competition, but yet again, we didn't even place. I'd better get saving for my own holiday!

The hashtag for the day was #WinInStyle, and although I didn't win anything, I definitely felt I had fun in style. Winning.
