You can leave your hat on
Sometimes simple is all that is required. A straw hat, a pretty dress and some black heels.
I saw this dress, thought it was very pretty; and the moment I put it on I feel in love. I loved the way it felt on me and how incredible the cut and design was. Not to mention the colour.
I paired it with a simple boater hat, some black heels and the look was complete.
This is the look I would like to wear to The Geelong Cup (our own race day; generally with a good insight into the winner of the Melbourne Cup!).
The look is simple yet elegant. I love a boater hat and it still works so well for spring racing as well as everyday wear.
The colour is so pretty and really works for this time of year.
There is usually a lot of press around the Geelong Cup in terms of the type of people who head to “country racing”. I feel the people who dress well and behave well are overlooked and therefore get missed when a recap is done.
We have incredible boutiques that stock beautiful clothes and they need to be seen, in particular on days like this when we showcase off our beautiful city.
My only catch to attending the Geelong Cup will be that I would have only been back at work for a week… Is it a bit cheeky to ask for the day off? Some businesses get the day off work, but my workplace elects Melbourne Cup instead. How I would love to show you images of the people who attend and some of the beautiful outfits.
I was wearing
- dress borrowed from Lami Saru boutique
- hat from Feather and Noise
- shoes are oldies but goodies!
