One outfit, 4 ways – Spring Racing and beyond!

If you are anything like me, where you love the Spring Racing season, but don’t love how much every different outfit costs then you’ll love this.

One outfit, 4 ways.

I’ve started with the most gorgeous pair of off white culottes from Cue for a bargain price of $67.50 (original price $225 in full price stores) paired with the coolest top from Seed, which set me back only $63.96 (almost 50% off the original price, thanks very much).

The best thing about separates? You can wear them again and again, with a different top or bottom for a completely new look. And guess what? Cost per wear becomes totally negligible.

So there, husband…


Derby Day:

Traditionally, black and white, I’ve added some stripes and spots for a little personality.


Stunning headpiece from Mimco for only $69, plus another 20% off until November 8.
Shoes from Nine West $69.96 (ridic, I know!)
Necklace $79.20 Mimco (20% off until Nov 8)
Clutch $63.20 Mimco


Melbourne Cup Day:

This is your day to shine, so dress to impress. So wear colour!


Shoes a measly $8 from House of Serendipity. Really, $8.
Necklace $5 from Lovisa. Yes, $5.
Bag $79.20 (originally $179) from Mimco
Floral crown $24 flowers from Ned’s, made by me!


Crown Oaks Ladies Day

Bring out your feminine side with lace, florals and pastels. All accessories are from Mimco.


Visor from Mimco, a steal at only $23 (a whopping 85% off the original price!! Say what?!)
Clutch $63.20
Heels $79.20
Necklace $39.20


Emirates Stakes Day

This is the most relaxed, family friendly day of the Spring Racing carnival.

But never be underdressed – there are still race day dress code standards to uphold. Have fun, but be comfortable.


Hat $23.96 from Seed
Necklace $34.99 Empty Hanger
Nude wedges $159.95 from Jo Mercer
Bag $29.95 Kate Hill


There you have it! My budget friendly, super styling tips for your best Spring Racing looks and beyond!

Giddy up!
