After a busy month, a trip down to Doncaster Race Course for Ladies Day was a welcome change of scenery. I usually plan my ladies day outfits weeks in advance but this was all a bit of a welcome whirlwind. I decided to opt for the Lovedrobe Navy Lace Insert Skater Dress from Evans which is a wardrobe staple shape that I also have in the blue (review here) and the coral (review here).

This dress is in a classic, flatter all, skater shape that you can pop on and look ready to head out the door in seconds. It is super comfortable to wear and the fit is very generous as it is elasticated under the bust and then just falls really prettily, hiding a multitude of sins which was much needed after the champagne reception, indulgent meal and afternoon tea that we were treated to.
I was lucky enough to be able to take along one of my friends which gave her an insight into the blogging world and it was great to meet so many lovely people including bloggers like the gorgeous Remie from Remie's Luxury Blog and the ever fabulous Kellie from Big Fashionista.

I knew that I was going to be on my feet for a long time and so I chose to wear my super comfortable nude wedges from Primark... although these were swapped for the flip flops that were in my goodie bag for the journey home!
Nude is a shade that goes with everything, especially with navy. Rather than buy a new fascinator, I was able to use my gorgeous nude gold fascinator that I wore to Ladies Day at Aintree a couple of years ago. Check out my commentary on the vlog of that event here. I'd like to think my knowledge of racing has improved since...
My nude clutch was from Matalan and has a gorgeous soft gold glittery panel on the flap. I always like to pick a metallic as an accent shade and for this outfit, my choice was gold. My gold Mikey diamante ball bracelet and gold diamante Tresor Paris earrings were the perfect accessories to compliment my outfit.
While I didn't strike gold on all of the races, my friend and I did manage to win three of them after sweet talking a very kind horse trainer into giving us some of his top tips.
A great day was had by all and the wins just made it a little sweeter. Thanks so much to Ladbrokes Bingo for a great day out.
