Happy Wednesday everyone!
I hope you enjoyed the Bank Holiday weekend.
I am sorry I haven’t posted in a while but I have had so much on with events, to styling at the weekends and my day job, I just don’t have a minute.
Anyway as you all may have seen I went to Punchestown last Tuesday. If you follow me you will have seen some of the amazing style already! There were so many gorgeous glamorous ladies dressed in gorgeous outfits with perfectly matching hats, bags and accessories, many opting for canary yellow, green, tangerine, powder blues and baby pinks.
Each year at Punchestown, they have a Best Dressed Lady competition which runs throughout the week and I went Tuesday as it was the only day I could get off work. There is one winner each day (Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday) and then one overall winner on the Friday. Friday is the big day – The prize was INCREDIBLE! The winner received a trip to the champagne region staying in the Bollinger estate, before a luxury weekend in Paris! See I told you it was INCREDIBLE!
My outfit was from COCO Boutique
in Dublin, when I saw this dress I just had to have it! I fell head over heels in love J I just thought it was so unique, elegant and feminine.
I then nipped down to see Mairead (Millinery by Mairead
) and, she had the ultimate perfect hat for me. I knew I wanted to wear something black as I already had my accessories the shoes and clutch bag purchased. The hat I choose was a large black rim hat with gorgeous green jewels all hand sewed stitched around the edges , complete with black and green feathers.! I absolutely loved my hat, it really finished off the entire look. Mairead is just a goddess so skilled at what she does!!
I kept my accessories quite simple, opting for black heels and a black box clutch with green and pink coloured jewels.
My sister and I had such a fun day at Punchestown, mingling with lots of fashionable ladies, drinking champagne and watching the style! So when I was chosen as one of the five most stylish ladies on Tuesday, I just couldn’t believe it. I was over the moon!! This is only my third time attending a race event and so I’m was more than pleased to be placed with that! I received a fabulous goodie bag worth €250, which included some Bollinger of course, a €50 cash prize, L’occitane goodies and much more!
However, even though I was unable to attend the other days I kept a close eye on the style over the week and well I have to say there were some stunning ensembles. On the other hand, I don’t know about you but I definitely would have chosen a different overall winner on Friday, if I’m being honest I was disappointed by the judge’s choice. I have to say Kirstie from Rosie’s Closet was definitely MY winner. It was fun, fabulous, fresh and a very on trend monochrome coordinate trouser suit! I am sure we will be seeing lots more of Kirstie in the foreseeable future x
Here are some of my favourites from the week at Punchestown.
Enjoy the rest of your week
