What I'd wear to the races...

On hearing about a competition where you can win a day at the races - Cheltenham Ladies Day it got me thinking of what I would wear if I actually won or went along to a race day. It's a day out that we've thought about, especially as my best mate lives right by a race course. 

I've only ever been to the races as a child, where the dress code was really relaxed. However if the daily mail is anything to go by then a day at the races is a much different event now. You always see the shocking pictures of the outfits from the races, so I'm hoping what I have in mind wouldn't get me on those pages. 

I used to love going to the races mainly because I have a huge love for horses. I used to horse ride as a child until I had the typical child strop and said I will never ride again. How much I regret that now...

Anyway, I decided on this beautiful green dress. I love the draping and asymmetric hemline, this would be 100% a dress that would get lots of wear. Now, because I'm Charli and I'm addicted to blazers, I settled on this cream one and would probably pray that it didn't get too dirty.

For the accessories I fell in love with this shoes, simple and silver! I haven't liked a pair of silver shoes since my prom shoes circa 2005. The bag is probably wishfull thinking in that I could actually manage a day with a clutch bag. This has never happened and probably never will, but it's a lovely bag.

What would you wear to a day at the races?
