Spring Racing. #2

Some of you may have seen my most recent post detailing my Spring Racing ensemble for the RSL Townsville Cup. Well, I’m back with part two!

I’m very lucky to have a gorgeous gal pal who allows me to style her, much like the many store mannequins I dressed during my time working in visual merchandising!

The reason for this part two piece is because style is unique and distinctive between individuals and this will give you two very different looks, both of which you may be able to draw inspiration from for your spring racing get up!


Top – Bardot
Skirt – Bardot
Clutch – Colette by Colette Hayman
Shoes – MissShop by Myer
Hat – Myer (this ‘Lack of Color‘ one is my pick for a similar option!)

For this look we chose a monochrome palette of black and charcoal grey. We matched this fine knit pencil skirt to a somewhat casual fedora, and let the black leather strap accent this spaghetti strap cropped top. To bring some light to entire outfit, we chose a neutral nude clutch bag and heels, and found this complimented it perfectly.

Renee was a little skeptical about wearing a fedora to the races, fearing that it may be too casual, but as you can see, it’s all about what you pair it with! If this isn’t channeling her inner Lara Bingle-Worthington, then I don’t what is. Sporting a low, messy chic bun also made the look feel more dressed up.

A big thank-you to my bestie Renee for allowing me to feature her on Meika & Me.

What do you think? Is this outfit your style?
