Ladies Day at Aintree with Matalan

Hello lovelies! Today's post is going to be a little summary of my day at Aintree for Ladies Day - and it's rather photo heavy so apologies for that! I was ever so kindly invited to Ladies Day by Carat Media and Matalan and I had the best day ever! I've never been to the races before so I was super excited to get dressed up, have a couple of drinks and enjoy the fashion shows and horse races. I was accompanied by the lovely Danielle, Jess and Becca and I also got to meet the lovely Amelia too who was a guest blogger judge.

Now you might be thinking horses ...and Matalan- how do they mix? But for the past couple of years Matalan have been attending The Grand National weekend showcasing their new collections on a catwalk as well as holding the style contest on Ladies Day - you can see some of the contestants pictured above and the finalists with Jeff! I've recently become very fond of Matalan (well, I've always been a fan of their clothing as it's so affordable) but they seem to have really stepped up their game recently. They have brought out some gorgeous clothing for Spring/Summer, I spied some lovely pieces on the catwalk (loving the playsuit in the back of the first image). You can view the Spring/Summer catalogue here.

It was also fun to see the style contest entries too- there was no fee you just had to strut your stuff down the catwalk and if you were titled the 'best dressed' of the day you would win £5000 cash, Matalan vouchers, a magazine spread and an Ipad so it was definitely worth entering! You can see the finalists in the 7th image with Jeff and it was in fact the gentleman who won- he was also on his stag do, not a bad end to the day!

I'd just like to thank Matalan so much for this opportunity. I had an amazing day and I'm definitely going to be attending next years Ladies Day, I had so much fun! Have you ever attended Ladies Day?
