….and we’re under starter’s orders.
As the Cheltenham Festival fast approaches, I thought I’d share a few ideas for outfits that I’d like to wear, if I were lucky enough to go. All of these using my favourite brands, some of whom I am fortunate enough to be an ambassador for.
With less than a week to go, I’ll be compiling six outfits. Some images taken from the brands’ websites, a few flat lays and a couple being worn from my own wardrobe. These outfits have all been put together ‘in reverse’. Rather than planning accessories around the clothes, I’m thinking outside the box and putting the clothes planned to complement the accessories.
Three accessories in fact. Can you guess what they are? From head to toe…
These three brands are synonymous with Cheltenham. You only have to look on social media to see a myriad of photographs of ladies standing in front of the statue of ‘Best Mate’, wearing at least one, if not all of these wonderful accessories. All three can be matched together quite easily too. The burning question is; what colour to go for.
So, without further ado, let’s get cracking with some knock out combinations. Outfits fit for Cheltenham.
Tweed anyone? The ultimate classic country attire. With so many brands to choose from, I have picked out just three. From fabulous ‘made to measure’ to high quality ‘ready to wear’, tweed is definately a winner, all three of these being ‘British made’ brands. Leger & Oaks, Holland Cooper and Dubarry.
The first of my chosen outfits, showcasing items mostly from my own wardrobe, with a couple of additions that would look great in my wardrobe.
The second of my outfits shows the classic white jeans and Faifax & Favor combo. A comination there will be no shortage of at Chelt’, but here is my chosen variation.
Outfit three. Why not try a tea dress? Teamed up with my favourite accessories. Some items I have. The others I need to add to my wardrobe at some point.
So, onto outfit four. Tans and browns, with a contrast of green. Debuting my fabulous new Shirt gifted from Hartwell Clothing, and my gorgeous Tweed Skirt from Leger & Oaks.
For my fifth outfit, I picked out one of the colours in the check of this tweed skirt to compliment the accessories.
Last, but by no means least, my final choice. Showing here that jeans can be dressed up to look perfect for a day at the races.
There you go, six outfits I would love to wear to Cheltenham, with a few bits needed to complete the looks. Good things come to those who wait anyway.
“But wait”, I hear you say, “what about photos of you wearing these outfits”. In fairness, I decided to save that part until last. All six outfits, so here you go.👇
So, these are my choices, from my own wardrobe, to give you alternative ideas for “A Day at the Races” for when you are on a limited budget. Hope you’ve enjoyed it.
Until next time, as always, be happy, stay happy and most of all have fun.
