Last week I attended the Punchestown Races for the first time. I was invited along as a guest of Gold Fever Hair Extensions who were sponsoring the Best Dressed Lady competition. We were so lucky that the weather was good on the day (Good= freezing but sunny) so we managed to take some photos to share with you.

I bought the shoes and skirt a few months ago after becoming totally enamoured during one of my frequent ASOS "browsing" sessions. At the time I didn't have any particular occasion in mind to wear them to but when I got the invite to the races I was excited to get them out of my wardrobe.
I wasn't sure what to pair the skirt with at first, I decided the heels and skirt were statement pieces so I would be better going with something simple. I saw this crop top on ASOS and even though it's something that is completely outside my comfort zone I decided to give it a try. When it arrived and I tried it on, I was surprised how much I liked it. I think the tiny bit of skin on show mixed with the ladylike full skirt and low metallic heels is the perfect combination of modern and classic that I wanted.
I couldn't decide what headpiece to go for so I ordered the floral garland and a Mini Veil and after asking a few people, they all preferred the flowers with the outfit so I went with that. I wore a black trench coat over it as it was quite chilly outside when we were watching the races. I was really happy with my outfit and the low heels were comfortable and practical for walking around all day.
Check out the Gold Fever Hair Instagram to see all the photos of the Best Dressed ladies. There were some stunning outfits, it was so much fun looking at all of the stylish men and woman and how much effort and thought was put into their outfits.
Have you ever been to the races?
