From the races, to the polo, it has been a massive week of social activity. The social season in Melbourne has truly kicked off with with many outdoor activities taking place. These are some of the biggest social events of the year where fashion meets lifestyle.
Horsing around at the AAMI Derby Day where everyone continues the strong tradition of dressing smartly and appropriately in black and white. Think my fair lady racing style. Here I paired a James Harper blazer and shirt with Jack London trousers and a waistcoat. I of course had to wear some splash of colour so brightened it up with a few colourful accessories.
Trotting through the week to Kennedy Oaks Day, otherwise known as "Ladies Day". What fun it was to watch all the fashion on the field competitions. So much colour and creativity when it comes to the crowd. The lovely sunny day was perfect for my Oxford blazer and waitcoat, topping the outfit off with the Flemington pink rose.
There are a number of polo matches held in Melbourne over the course of two months with Portsea Polo being the crowning jewel in socialites calendar. This year I am starting off with Werribee Polo at Werribee Mansion, followed by Twighlight Polo conculding with Portseas Polo in January. Let's be honest, no one attends to actually watch the seven chukkas, the horses, or players(although there are some very attractive players). The real sport here is the people watching. Wearing Bell & Barnett blazer, Oxford shirt and pants from Entre Amis.
After a week of watching horses on the track and the wonderful people trackside, it is time to turn my mind to sourcing some wonderful pieces for my Eurpoean adventure. Stay tuned to instagram for more.
