Girls just want to have fun
In Liverpool April is one of the most important months in the social calender – The Aintree Grand National. Many of the girls can be planning this one day wether it be Ladies Day or the actual Grand National day its self for a good few months.
If you have no clue what I’m talking about then let me fill you in.
Aintree Racecourse is home to the world-famous steeple chase – The Grand National. For years now most girls have always made Ladies day (the Friday) the main event, it’s a chance to get dressed up and show the country what great style us Liverpool girls have – all though certain newspapers like to drag it down and show the bad shots, not mentioning any names! Wearing hats and fascinators is the fun part of the day and the Saturday is now as popular with the same trend.
I have been to Ladies day a couple of times but much prefer the Saturday as there is nothing better than watching the main race live and hearing the atmosphere of everyone cheering.
3 months in advance?!
Most girls will start planning their outfits as early as 3 months before the big day. You want to be winning the grand prize of best dressed and making it in to all the national newspapers on the best dressed list. Even booking hair and make up as this is something that gets booked up so quickly and you don’t want to be left with no appointment.
My Favourite looks
As I am not going this year I thought I would pick a few looks that I would have chosen to wear.
I was lucky to be sent 3 dresses form the company Tobi and these were the 3 I chose and how I styled them.
Firstly is this gorgeous White Andie White Shift Dress
I love the pattern on this dress and the style. I styled this with a pair of wedges that I have had for a few years but I found similar ones here Miss KG Strappy High Wedge Sandal and these earrings are all the rage now Black Tassel Earrings
I thought the black accessories would highlight the black in the dress and just add something more than just the white.
Secondly this dress is something I wouldn’t normally choose but I loved all the lace detail Ali White Off Shoulder Skater Dress
I thought I would team this with Gold accessories and again these are things I have had for a while so will link similar below.
Jewellery is all Michael Kors.
Finally is the
This is probably a bit more daring for me but I love the style and again just picking out the black makes it pop a lot more.
These outfits would also be perfect for a wedding/Christening or and other race meet. Or leave the Fascinators off and they can be perfect for a night out or dressed down with a pair of sandals on holiday, especially with your golden tans.
Do check out Tobi’s website for some of their other fabulous items of clothing. They are based in America but shipping was so quick and tracked, so I couldn’t fault their service in the slightest.
