Ladies Day at Aintree Racecourse

If you saw last year's blogposts with behind the scenes footage for #FabulousFriday and my trip to Ladies Day at Aintree Races ...well, I'm so excited to announce that I will be working with them again this year and I cannot wait! 

Friday the 13th may or may not be an unlucky omen however if this year is even remotely similar to last year, I'll be a very happy girl! With five races won last year, I'm going to try and make it six wins this year! If the horse races themselves aren't your thing, then there's loads more entertainment, live music, delicious food and beverages to make the day a memorable one. Whether you make it a girly occasion filled with giggles and bubbles, or like me you're taking your other half for a fun date day, you're sure to have a fabulous Friday at the Randox Health Grand National on Ladies Day.

So let's talk fashion... If you're a newbie to the races fashion, then be prepared to be speechless ( more ways than one)! Don't be afraid to break out of your comfort zone or try to stand out from the crowd. I guarantee, there will be someone who will stand out more than you! Outfit spotting in itself should be it's own sport throughout the day. The ladies certainly use Ladies Day as an excuse to go all out and dress to impress, all in the hope of obtaining the 'Style Award' title! There are various styles you will spot, whether its colour block pant suits or the all-white regal and almost bridal look you're after, don't be afraid to go above and beyond your regular attire and break out of your comfort zone. Another detail to note is the contrasting fabrics you'll come across. From lace and crochet to satin and silk, the ladies don't hold back when it comes to luxury. Some have custom made dresses pre-ordered for months in advance (I did this last year), while others may make a last minute online order. This year, I took inspiration from my Spring Summer 2018 Fashion Trends video and I chose my look in store from Outfit at Liverpool Shopping Park. Here's a little sneak peek of the outfit I chose (*hint: it's not a dress this year...)
