How colourful is your wardrobe? A few months ago when I opened the wardrobe to decide what to wear I was faced with dark colours. I often stick to denim or black but know that wearing colour makes me feel brighter. Therefore I have been revamping my wardrobe with splashes of colour. Furthermore was also searching for What to Wear to the Royal Enclosure at Ascot Races
As children we often wear colourful clothes but as adults we shy away from being bright. However when I wear bright colours my whole disposition changes. I feel better and when I feel better I am so much more positive and allow exciting things to come into my life.
However I have a limited budget so do look for clothes that offer great value. I have collaborated with JD Williams to dress myself with a splash of colour on a budget. I started by looking at blouses as they are so versatile.
My first choice was a long pleat-front blouse with a dip-back hem. The length of the shirt is perfect for me as it skims hips and bum! I know coral is a good colour for me and it will look great with jeans. I like a loose fitting shirt as it hides a multitude of sins. In the photo I am wearing it with a lovely yellow necklace I picked up in a Seasalt sale.
I also picked up a playsuit for my summer holiday. JD Williams has a great range of beachwear including cover ups and swimwear. Our main holiday tends to be a fully inclusive beach holiday. It is a time to chill out and as such rarely leave resort! We do other trips to get our fix or culture! Therefore playsuits etc are perfect for popping over swimwear when heading up to the restaurant for lunch. On top of that playsuits are perfect for packing as they roll well and don’t crease plus so comfy to wear.
My final pick was for something a bit special! I am heading to Ascot with my best friend to celebrate her 40th birthday. Therefore I was looking for a dress to wear that is smart enough for the Royal Enclosure. Did you know there is a dress policy that includes no strapless dresses. You must wear a hat or fascinator (of a certain size) too. We are planning to drink champagne and picnic on the grass so I need to look the part. The dress I picked out is from Joe Browns and just £65. It is described as a statement dress of the season. Complete with the flattering full skirt and a fantastic floral print. What do you think? Will I pass the Ascot dress code?
