OOTD: A Day at the Races

February 23, 2014

Happy Sunday guys! 

So today I went to my boyfriend's grandparents 60th Anniversary and they celebrated it at Naas Racecourse in Kildare? (I'm not into horse racing, so I'm not really sure what the place is called!)
It was such a lovely day and I met a lot of lovely people, family, friends etc. 

My boyfriends grandparents had booked a suite for the guests and we had a lovely lunch and desert, tea, coffee, wine, you name it! And it was perfect spot for horse racing fans because the finish line was in full view, whether you are out on the balcony or watching from inside!

This was my very first horse race and I really enjoyed it! So here is what I wore:

Miss Luxe's Red Peplum Dress (this time WITH the belt!). The colour looks pink/magenta here due to weird lighting and camera, but the link shows the proper colour of it. It's really red! I would recommend this dress to anyone because it really is SUPER comfy and the material is stretchy and warm!

I wore my Newbridge necklace that my boyfriend's grandparents bought me for Christmas 2 years ago. It's simple but works with the outfit!

Then I threw a blazer over to make it more casual, because the dress on its own would have been a little too dressy (compared to everyone else that was there!), and I didn't know this before I arrived so the blazer was a good idea! Plus it meant that if people were more dressy, I could take it off and blend in with the crowd! LOVE my blazers! 

A long coat always works with long dresses and good to prevent your dress from being blown up if it's super windy like today! This coat is from United Colours of Benetton and it's very old so I don't know if they still sell it anymore.

The only issue I had with the dress is the belt that came with it. Don't get me wrong, I love the style of this belt and I think it goes perfectly with the dress. The only thing is the material it's made of isn't "great". It's only my second time wearing the dress with the belt and the plastic is already breaking on me. I have a feeling it won't last too long. A more durable material or even a more elastic plastic would be better.

But the belt comes free, and you can easily wear the dress without the belt so it really doesn't make much of a difference because the dress is so amazing I'd be happy to pay the same price for just the dress! :)

Have any of you guys gone to horse races? If so, what did you wear?!

Hope you all had a super duper Sunday!
