I was sooo excited I was able to go to the Belmont Stakes with Mike and our friend John this past weekend. It's such a fun experience to see the fashion, experience the excitement, and just relax and hang out for the day. I recommend getting general admission over buying a seat; you have more freedom to do things throughout the day.You were able to hang out in the park outside in front of the venue, we could get up close to the horses, and of course we had to bet on some races. Overall, we had so much fun roaming around the venue and watching the many races throughout the day.

Obviously, I loved seeing what people wore. It was mostly a lot of Vineyard Vines, Lilly Pulitzer dresses, recognizable prints from J.Crew, and guys in full-on seersucker suits. I knew it would be a preppy dream, but I opted to wear something a little more my style, but still worthy of the horse races. This silky, lightweight, chiffon maxi dress was perfect for the 85 degree weather. I bought these espadrille shoes the day before in the city, which were the perfect amount of heel for the occasion. 
We decided after we left to make Belmont a yearly trip - it was too fun not to go again!

Similar Dress // Shoes // Similar Scarf // Bracelet // Sunnies // Similar Necklace // Bag - also love this one


  1. Obssessed with this look, especially the scarf! I love that you opted for something your style instead of just blending in!

  2. So not to be weird, but you and Mike should totally have Belmont be the theme of your future wedding because ya'll look SO FREAKING CUTE. Like I want these photos published in Town & Country or something! Looks like such a fun time.
