White, Gold and Blue Ladies Day Outfits

I remember when I lived in Chester, walking by the canal on my way into town on race day and seeing hundreds of boys in suits, each with a pint in hand, laughing and being generally raucous. I'm not sure where the lady's hung out, but it seemed that they had some unspoken rule of 'boys get this part of town and girls get this part' lol. But you'd see them as you got closer to the racecourse, in their pretty outfits and fancy hats. I actually got a job at Chester racecourse the second day I moved to Chester. I didn't end up going though because on my first day, I was walking out the house and got a call that my shift had been cancelled and so I decided it was fate and that I was supposed to be a full time blogger, which worked really well actually. I ended up doing lots of modelling as an extra way to earn an income, which massively increased my confidence and is still something I really enjoy. Anyway, I digress! Ladies Day is such a big event, I always end up blogging about it. Who doesn't love getting dressed up? It's like prom for adults haha.

I love styling outfits and have put together three different looks with three different colour palettes, so you can choose which colour suits your personality. Will it be classic white, fresh mid blue or will you mix it up a bit with a punchy gold look? I think my favourite is the white outfit, I love the elegance, simplicity and cut of the dress mixed with the floral texture of the clutch and instead of plain pearls or diamond studs, a bit of a modern twist with the geometric earrings.




If you want to be a bit different this year, instead of opting for the typical white, pink or floral outfit, try the cool, but still classy, gold look which will surely make you stand out from the crowd! The classic white look will always impress, it is clean, effortless and elegant and the blue asymmetric look is a classic ladies day colour but with a modern shape. And if you don't know which horse to bet on? Cheltenham Ladies day results page will help you to focus.

Elsa from Frozen in Real Life | Let it Go!

Um... yeah, hahaahaaaa *dying* I turned myself into Elsa, well, a brunette version! This was SO fun, I can't even. Photoshop, you wonderful thing you. Let's just take a moment to admire this beautiful dress, I don't think I've ever seen so many sequins in my life, nor had so many covering my bedroom floor! It's from 27dress.com and was custom made to my measurements, it's very heavy and the beadwork is amazing, especially on the back. It isn't a perfect fit as the bust is huge, which must be down to the mannequin? I'm not sure, but it fits everywhere else. This is one of those things I would never get the chance to do without having a blog, so thank you 27 dress! You can find the dress here. What a fun afternoon :)

Orange Sunglasses

I instagrammed this shirt the day I bought it (please follow @kokoluxe - I started a new account!) it was only £8 in the sale, is lovely fabric and covers my bum! I also loved this white one but couldn't get both! Have you noticed how much lighter my hair is now? It seems my permanent dye is washing out :O But I guess that's okey, cause it's more my natural colour. And I'm not sure what make-up goes with orange sunglasses, I think the mirror effect is totally rad, but should you have a more coral lip? Someone advise me lol. x

Hear Me Roar

Just a simple monochrome outfit with some kick ass mirror sunglasses and a hat for a bit of attitude, whack a coat on and you're good to go! The fabric on the top is lovely, soft and thick and the hat is the same quality that you'd find in H&M, totally stoked, nothing scratchy here!

Shirt and Jeans

Simple shirt and jeans accessorized with chunky platform boots today. The boots are quite shiny compared to the website pics and I always order a size up on these kind of sites. I love how much height you get with the platform whilst the heel isn't too high so they don't hurt! They appeal to my grungy side :) The glasses are cool, I got brown lenses in 'moderate' I think it's nice to have a neutral pair of shades when you don't want black, although I wish they were more pink.
