Wellington always turns the weather on when it's important and today was no exception for the Wellington Cup. Even though I love a little bet on the horses, my favourite part is (obviously) seeing what everyone is wearing. The hats were gorgeous, the shoes were awesome and it was cool to see some fabulous lady tats peeking out from under pretty dresses. The little lass above had made her own hat and that's what I love about the races - seeing how everyone puts their outfits together. I especially love the ones with a creative streak. From across the grass, I spied a hat and fell in love - see the pics below (it's the blue one). Designed by Sherylene Kohiti from SRK Millinery. Her motto - 'Stay Calm and wear a Fabulous Hat."
The only thing missing from my day was a parasol for myself. It was bloody hot in the sun!!
