Each year the nation stops to watch one of the most exhilarating races of the year.. The Melbourne Cup!! I have never attended the race in Melbourne but when I think of the day I think back to fond memories being young, sitting around the TV at home with my family in anticipation for who would win the sweep stakes.. I remember the horse I had chosen to win the race (Saintly) winning back in 1996 with the jockey in black & white checkers & yellow colours to this day! I only won about $5 but it was just so exciting & I always loved watching how beautifully dressed everyone was for the big day!
I won't be attending the Cup in Melbourne this year either (sigh) as I have a few things on & so I wanted to put together this outfit for some style inspiration for anyone attending the big race or attending the races as this is more than likely something I would wear to the races.. I'd probably change my mind last minute like I usually do when I have an outfit planned out in my head, then try it on and I don't like it anymore, so try the rest of my wardrobe on… Okay going off topic a little.Anyways I loved mixing this statement marble print pencil skirt (my faveee) back with a high neck pink crop with black accessories & a statement lips.. I feel it is a really classy feminine look.
I send a tonne of good luck vibes your way if you are placing a bet or if you are entering a 'Fashion's on the field' comp remember to wear something that you feel comfortable in so that you can ooze confidence & may the best horse win the cup.. Giddy Up!
