Racing Into Spring
Posted on September 02 2016
Spring has sprung! Not that you'd believe it, with Sydney's absolutely dismal weather today!
Today in the studio, I shot 4 must-have spring racing carnival looks.
Check them out!
The new GK Audrey dresses have been a real hit, and the Blue Rose Swing Dress would have to be my pic of the bunch! I loved that I could pair this with a deep burgundy red, even though there is no sign of red at all in the print!
My #1 rule for accessorising is, that as long as your top and bottom match.... then you can realistically accessorise with any colour, even if it's not in the dress!
You can see here that I've gone with a striped fascinator, adorned with beautiful rich raspberry red and pink blooms. Take your eyes down to the peek of the petticoat, and voila! Instant matchy matchy!
Dress - GK Audrey Blue Rose
Petticoat - 2 x Single Layer Petticoats Burgundy
Fascinator - Who Shot The Barman
Necklaces - Gumball Necklace
Earrings - Gumball Studs
I feel like green is such an under appreciated colour of the rainbow! I'm loving this block Kelly Green Timeless dress! Not only is it fully lined, and made from high quality cotton sateen, it also has pockets! PERFECT!
Green can be one of those colours that can be hard to accessorise. Do you remember the old saying, "blue and green should never be seen unless there's something in between!"? I swear my mother used to recite this to me all the time growing up!
Leopard accessories are always a winner for me, well leopard anything will always win my heart....
Dress - Kelly Green Summer Swing Dress
Petticoat - Single Layer Dusty Peach Petticoat
Belt - Rose Elastic Belt
Fascinator - Coming Soon!
Brooch - Leopard Love
Earrings - Small Gold Hollywood Hoops
I loved pushing the boundaries with this polka dot dress! Polka dots would never be traditionally thought of as a tropical themed print! I gave it a real tiki vibe with bamboo accessories and a hibiscus hair flower! It's all in the accessories!
Dress - May Polka Dot Swing Dress
Petticoat - Double Layer Black
Bangles - Bamboo 4 pc Set
Earrings - Bamboo Teardrops
Fascinator - Hawaiian Honey Red
I saved my best for last! If this outfit doesn't scream SPRING to you, then I don't know what will! The beautiful mix of colours, the soft floaty fabric... everything is just superb.
Dress - Sylvia Floral Dress
Petticoat - Single Layer Violet
Belt - Coming Soon
Necklace - Coming Soon
Fascinator - Tropical Sunshine
Well that's my top 4 looks for this Spring Racing Season! Don't hesitate to send me a message to help style your spring outfit! <3 Bek xx
