The spring racing carnival has begun! And the word racing is not only applied to the horses, for women there are lots of racing going on too. Racing to the beauty salon to get the hair done, racing to have perfect mani-pedi for the day, and of course the most important thing racing to get the gorgeous outfit that match with the elegant hats or fascinator. As you know, fashion is a major thing of the spring carnival!
Are you participating in this spring carnival? If yes, what are you going to wear? Do you prefer hat or fascinator? For me, personally, I would wear fascinator if the event is inside and hat if it is outside.
No matter what your wardrobe choice is, remember that you have to feel comfortable in what you wearing. Otherwise, have fun and enjoy the carnival. Indulge yourself in those pretty little canapes and sweet champagne! But, don’t forget to pick the kids up from school though 🙂
