Melbourne Cup - in the pink!


It's Melbourne Cup weekend 
and I've had five days off work - Yay!
Only in Australia would the horse 'race that stops the nation'
be cause for a day, or two, depending on where you work, off work.

The Melbourne Cup Carnival 2015 
is spread over four days, each day has a different style and feel.
Getting raceday ready takes effort,
as there is strict racewear etiquette.

Think sophistication, think classy
think Wren in a blind panic!


Whilst I could possibly pull something out of the wardrobe for Derby Day,
which is all about the timeless elegance of black & white.
Well sort of... 

Melbourne Cup is all about striking colours and a statement hat
Hmmmm, I've got my own interpretation of this.
I've got myself a pink hat, some pink shoes and a pink bag,
Pink fingers and pink toes...



I'm not sure what type of a statement I am going to make...
I think I'm going to look a bit like the dolly-mixture sweets!
I've already been told by Daughter No 1 to ditch the pink shoes


There's a horse running called Max Dynamite
maybe I should back him.
Shame there's not a horse running called
'Last minute shopper' or 'wearing it all'!

Counting down to Melbourne Cup tomorrow
Can't wait!
Linking with Mosaic Monday,

With thanks to Beverley at How Sweet the Sound,
Judith at Lavender Cottage & all the hosts at Our World Tuesday.
