Derby Day: the white edit

With Spring Racing season practically upon us in Melbourne, I thought I should probably put together a few edits to help, those lucky enough to be attending, get race ready! First main race up on the calendar is Derby Day. My favourite for fashion being black and white, so very Melbourne. With so much gorgeousness landing in stores everywhere I’ve split it into two edits; the white edit and the black edit. Go all white, all black or mix and match!

  • you will note that with the exception of that exceptional Stuart Weitzman shoe (part mule, part slide, 100% sexy) I’ve chosen block heels that aren’t too high, except on the comfort level 😉 say that 10 times fast! Seriously though, nothing hawwwt about a babe who can’t walk in her heels or who sinks into the grass and topples over! Go the block heel ladies, go the block heel!

Centaurea cyanus Blue Boy - Cornflower;sow early spring or winter sow;full sun;plant spacing 12in;deadhead;height 36in ...also look for 'black ball' or white variety:
the official flower of Derby Day is the cornflower, don’t forget to pre-order or buy on the day
Jen Hawkins in the all white at last years Derby Day…how glorious was the Myer Marquee btw?

Are you headed to any races this season? I don’t think I will make it to any, way too much else happening with hubs and his ironman training (not long to go now thankfully!!) and the kids and trying to make Frocktober as big as I can, but maybe a local race meeting. And I’ll definitely be taking cues from these edits! xx
