The Tiny Heart: Off to the Races + Look What I Got

Off to the Races + Look What I Got




Dress-c/o Choies, Belt-H&M, Bag-Target (similar), Sunnies-Ray Ban Jr., Sandals-Target

This past Saturday I was invited by America's Best Racing to attend the horse races at Monmouth Park. I decided to wear my new black and white stripe dress from Choies. This was my very first time at the track so I was excited to see what it was all about! There's a lot involved in choosing which horse(s) to bet on like the jockey's stats and the horse's previous performances. Since I was just betting for fun, most of the time I picked a horse whose name I was drawn to like Sweet Tooth Sweety or LoveFindsaWay. And naturally that meant I wound up losing, ha. But I still had a lot of fun and I'm planning on going again!

  17. This dress - I love how the stripes are in different direction on top - so flattering! I've gone to the races a couple of times and it's always so fun. The last time I went, a couple of friends won a few thousand dollars and we celebrated (and spent) the winnings.

  29. That's so cool that you got to go do that! I've never been to a horse race it seems like something you should experience at least once haha. LOVE this dress too! The way the stripes come in at a diagonal at the top make it look so unique and interesting. And that neon bag is the perfect color pop :)
