Blue Diamond Stakes Day is a favourite race day amongst my group of friends, as it’s the last big event of Summer racing. It was sadly also a farewell for one of our best friend’s who is moving interstate.
Being a Summer race day, whites and soft florals were definitely a hit around the track with bright pops of colour. I opted for a statement sleeve off the shoulder dress for a bit of fun paired a vintage pearl headband my mum made 30 years ago and gold heels.

A long weekend and the chance to go on an adventure with my Mum to another city, was a definite yes from me! The second state final in the Myer Fashions On The Field Competition was to be held at Hobart Cup and it has always been place I have wanted to visit.
As soon as the competition date was announced, my Mum and I started planning an outfit. Yellow has been the colour of the season along with layering and lace detailing trends, so we wanted to create an outfit that could incorporate all these elements. Continue reading

The last day of the carnival is here and my feet are definitely happy to see my sneakers for a while after today! Emirates Stakes Day has always been a favourite of mine, as it’s a little more relaxed and it’s so cute seeing the kids running around dressed up for Junior Fashions On The Field.
After playing around in my wardrobe, I decided to go for an all white off the shoulder look with a fun colour pop of coral. I’ve had this gorgeous Felicity Northeast boater, Ellery statement sleeve top and Sophia Webster heels that I’ve been dying to wear, so today seemed like the perfect occasion.

There’s only a few times a year one of my best friends, Charlotte comes home from overseas so I couldn’t wait to spend Ladies Day again with her this year! The sun was shining and we were ready for a great day, filled with amazing fashion in the finals of the Fashions On The Field competition and fun in the Mumm marquee.
Being ladies day, we both opted for feminine silhouettes and colour palettes. White and gold has been a favourite of mine this season so my mum and I once again whipped up a very last minute outfit for the day. Accompanied by another amazing hair style from the geniuses at Heading Out Hair and Beauty in Fitzroy and my new favourite Kim Weibenga headpiece – the outfit was complete.

From daily chats planning outfits to sharing Pinterest boards, we couldn’t wait for the day to finally come around, especially since we had missed Derby Day! Continue reading

After missing Caulfield Guineas last weekend, I couldn’t wait head to BMW Caulfield Cup Day with my very chic girl friend, Bonnie. Caulfield Cup Day has always been a favourite event of mine, as I’ve had so many amazing memories there – from my first ever Fashions On The Field Competition, way too much fun in the Young Members and Pegasus marquees and my biggest Fashions On The Field win in 2014.

Spring is officially here! Last night some of Australia’s biggest faces in modelling came together to launch the David Jones Spring / Summer 2016 collection. Jesinta Campbell, Gemma Ward, Jessica Gomes and Montana Cox all graced the runway showing off the latest collections from some of my favourite Aussie designers; Ellery, Romance Was Born, Zimmermann and Ginger & Smart.
Bright, bold prints took center stage with flirty lace and bellowing sleeve detailing also featuring heavily. Pastels seem to be the ‘it’ palette this season and our favourite reliable friend, monochrome is back again. Continue reading

This season is all about navy! For someone who lives in black most days, I’ve really enjoyed the change up navy has brought to my life. Finally I can justify my shopping addiction as I can wear outfits day-to-day and for racing.
Now I know what you’re thinking… Navy is a little boring!? You are wrong. When you pair it back with a pop colour, navy becomes a real statement and will stand out amongst the other dark Winter looks. I am especially loving mint, fuchsia, wine or white teamed back with navy, as these colours make the navy pop and will translate from Winter racing through to Spring.

Recently I was having coffee with a girlfriend, chatting all things fashion and my upcoming FOTF competitions when she pointed out that most people know what to expect from my outfits. It was actually pretty true!
I love to block – whether it is colour or prints. I can’t get enough of it and I feel I have had some pretty good luck with this concept over the years. It did get me thinking though, I should try something new and push myself creatively. Continue reading
