ascot appropriate

I'm all for ignoring the classic list of fashion faux pas : white before labour day, navy & black, mixing metals or sequins during daytime... but some rules simply aren't best to break. last week the great, the glam, the lords & the ladies met for the affair known as the royal ascot! here, a strict style must be met including no midriffs, no thighs, no thin straps & the famed four inch minimum for headpieces & hats. I love to imagine what big, bold & beautiful accessory I would balance on my head if I ever received an invitation. though these elaborate ensembles aren't for every afternoon, they're great inspiration for adding something extra on top. what would you wear to meet ascot appropriate style standards?

high fahrenheit, highly femme

I'm not sure the summer heat has hit your location lately but the east coast is definitely feeling it! there's something about these toasty temperatures that kicks my winter & autumn androgyny out the wardrobe window simply stating, "let's get girly!" ultra feminine details offer an escape into your most whimsical daydreams as it's quite hard to wear pastel pinks & powder blues without wanting an ice cream cone & even harder to pose in a pleated skirt without taking a twirl... my summer dress & sunnies obsession won't die down any moment soon, so I plan to embrace it with lace, eyelets, scalloped hems & (of course) pearls! do you battle high fahrenheits with highly femminine frocks?
