For me it was only a flying visit to Doncaster Races on Saturday, as I had been working away.
Although I did manage to get there just in time to see our horse run in the 7:20.
I had come to the conclusion that I would not have time to scour the course for all the well dressed colts and fillies and would have to make up for lost time next week.
But all was not lost. As I was fortunate enough to meet a lovely family from Glasgow in the owners and trainers.
What initially drew me to this family was Mrs Crumlish' exquisite coat. The pattern in the fur was amazing and definitely stood out from the crowd, I think the button down collar gives the shape of the coat an edge, making it different from every other classic trench and the fur trimmed boots finish off the look perfectly.
Their daughters Robyn and Ell-e were also dressed immaculately keeping their outfits young and on trend, but still race course appropriate. I love the leather jacket with the fur collar (I need to find myself one!!). The girls kept their hair and make-up simple and looked effortlessly beautiful.
The whole family were such a pleasure to meet and I hope I get the chance to catch up with them again to see what exciting outfits they have put together.
