One of my favorite places to go in the summer is the racetrack. Every summer my friends and I take our annual trip to Saratoga, NY to watch the horse races. It’s fun to relax and spend a fun day with good friends!
My favorite part of going to the races is dressing up of course! My dress is from Lauren James, I have it in sea foam green! It’s one of my all time favorite dresses! She makes perfect dresses for the races. My friend V on the right is wearing a Lauren James dress as well. You can find it here!
I also am wearing a sun hat that I got at target and added my own ribbon for a special touch! My shoes are from Marshalls, not sure of the brand tho! And my pearl necklace, and as Jackie Kennedy would say “pearls are always appropriate!”
We did bet a little money for fun but only 2 of us actually won something. Sadly, it was not me. My horse came in last place:(, that’s what happens when I pick the pink one lol.
We’ve been going to the races for the past 3 years, and it’s such a fun tradition. I look forward to it every summer! The Saratoga race track opened in 1863 and is open for the summer with racing 6 days a week. There is many other fun things to do in Saratoga as well. I used to come up here quite often when I was younger for ballet auditions and we would always stop at the Cold Stone and Alex and Ani store on our way home! They also have many shops and delicious restaurants. They have a Lilly store so you know thats’s always on the list!
Here are some of my favorite restaurants!
Wheatfields I always get the
Chianti Ristorante I love the Capellini Alla Checca!
Brueggars You can never go wrong with a bagel!
Here’s a look at some of the past years outfit looks!
My first year at the races, I wore this long, blue Lilly Pulitzer dress! They don’t have the exact same color but they have some that are pretty close! Love this dress! It is so versatile, you can wear it to school, grad parties, or even just running errands!
Year two I decided to take a little different route with my dress choice. I’m wearing a black Calvin Klein dress! Finally got the memo, and bought a black sun hat to match. And of course my pearl necklace to tie the look together!
Finally back with to Lilly again this year. I’m wearing a green Lilly Pulitzer shift dress! This isn’t the exact one I’m wearing but this is the same style! I love this dress, the cut is perfect! Also, can’t forget the obligatory hat and pearls to make the outfit complete!
My friend V on the left is also wearing a Lilly Pulitzer, this is the closest one I can find! And my friend Steph on the right is wearing a Lauren James dress. Here is a similar one!
Cheers friends xoxo
