I’ve never been to the Galway races, so preparing for Ladies’ day, when our dress code was ‘colour’ was a bit of a mission for me. My wardrobe comprises of black, white, grey and denim and most of the shops have their Autumn stock in already with loads of muted neutrals and at brightest a burgundy print, so finding something to fit the brief proved rather difficult. I went as a guest of Dove, you see…who have just launched the first deodorant to leave no white marks on 100 different colours. Here’s my race day diary…
I struck it lucky with Oasis, who had tonnes of colour in their summer sale plus the perfect new collection pieces to complete the look and TK Maxx, where actually deciding which colour accessories to choose was a difficult task because they have so many designer brands for less.
But first, coffee…..and a shit load of make up and bacon sandwiches.
I went for this green cami and lime print skirt from Oasis in the end and paired it with sunglasses, headband and belt from TK Maxx. I grabbed my leather biker on the way out the door and decided on my Vivienne Westwood Melissa cherry heels, in keeping with my self-imposed fruit theme.
Our group seemed to be the last ones standing, but we couldn’t leave the Galway races without one for the road (and a stop in “Applebee’s” to raid that beer cave).
