#ColourMeMarch with Cheltenham racecourse 13

I have never been to Cheltenham races, even though I live so close to Racecourse. We’ve all heard of Ladies day (which is  on the 11th of March this year), crazy dresses and wild hats. This year though Cheltenham are doing things differently.  The best dressed fillies will be chosen solely via social media.  They are calling this contest #ColourMeMarch and I’ve entered.

Look closer at my Joules scarf – It says CHELTENHAM in the lower right of the picture.

These stockings are much brighter than these photos suggest




A bit closer up – See I told you they are rather RED.

It’s pretty much the rules of Race Day that you’ve got to have something silly on your head…


Fascinator I made from knitting fluffy wool, and bright streaks of fake hair on the clips underneath.

In my outfit photos (taken by Blokey) I am wearing a Primark floral dress, a Primark animal print belt, Ann Summers red stockings, a Joules scarf, necklace by Nova Silver, hair dye by Live XXL (styled by myself) shoes by Sherbert.

If you are going to Cheltenham Festival on Ladies Day get your outfit photo and enter now. It has to be what you’ll wear on the day, so choose wisely.

What would you wear? A big silly fascinator or a hat? High heels or flats?
Do you have any tips for a racing newbie? I’m thinking rule one is leave the credit card at home, just in case I enjoy betting too much. I’ve never put a bet on a horse, or watched a race. That’s a bit odd as I spent a lot of time at a horse stables in the country as a child, and had horsey pals.

Why not pop on to twitter and have a nosey at ColourMeMarch?
Disclosure: I was under no obligation to blog this, but huge thanks to eTailPR for the heads up on this competition.
