I need an outfit for the races..

With Royal Ascot in 2 weeks, the less organised of us (i.e. me!) are still trying to decide what to wear! I’ve narrowed my selection down, and I’m now trying to decide between two gorgeous outfits from Long Tall Sally!


I love the simplicity of a shift dress, this one is made from a light tweed and it is distinctly sophisticated. The Boucle shift dress also appeals to me due to the long line jacket which matches it, it is so classically stylish! Being tall, I often struggle to get the length right on jackets, and so this one being specifically designed for women over 5ft 8 is ideal!

Daisy Jacquard Dress

However, I adore this dress, the colour and the neckline is so flattering that I think I’d use it for my friend’s wedding and dinner while we’re on holiday as well as our trip to the races! This has a distinctly retro feel with the big daisy pattern on the fabric, which I think is a hugely appealing. 


Which do you think I should choose? I’m torn between the sophistication of the boucle shift dress and the colour of the daisy jacquard. Which would you choose?
