One of the things I love about Summer weather, is spending a day at the races.
I love horses, but I'm no gambler (I always loose anyway, so there's really no point).

For me it's all about the outfits, the picnics and the sunshine.
This is what a wore when I went to Thirsk races my boyfriend last weekend. I just wish the photo was better so you could see the outfit properly, unfortunately it's another iPhone effort.
(I have a new camera so this is one of the last iPhone photos you will see on here!!)

I'm absolutely in love with this blouse, you can probably guess that it's from New Look.
The colour is a gorgeous coral/pink, and I love the contrast of the bright with the black bow neck tie. It's also a slight variation on my beloved peter pan collar, this time with a scalloped edged collar.
It's also available in white, and I have to admit, I will probably end up buying that too!

The shorts are one of my most go-to items in my wardrobe at the moment, they're so versatile.
I wore the black brogue boots which I practically live in, and black tights. I would have got my legs out, but they really are far too white, I'm going to have to go on the search of the perfect fake tan.
Lastly, of course you can't go to the races without wearing a hat! This is another NL beauty, which I have been wearing loads lately... I'm definitely a hat person.
