Where the Turf Meets the Surf

RacesTheory “Vern” blazer, size 00 | Ann Taylor Factory petal front shell, size xxsp | Paige Blue Heights jeans (hemmed & slimmed), size 24 | Ann Taylor Factory belt, size xs | Jewelry – pearl necklace, jet necklace, pearl brooch

After getting these jeans slimmed, the next order of business is to figure out how to style them! The grey plays well to a softer color palette, and since I’ve been really into wearing this seersucker jacket lately, they seemed to make a natural match.

Then, I remembered I was going to need an outfit for opening day at the Del Mar racetrack, and I was going to need a hat! Luckily I picked up this little H&M number a few weeks ago.

Races Detail

As I often do, I changed my mind several times before opening day, and ended up wearing a dress instead, but the hat (and seersucker jacket) did make the cut (opening day at Del Mar is kinda like the Kentucky Derby of the west coast…it’s big hat day!).

I thought I was being so clever shopping in the men’s department for my hat…tsk tsk…I should have known. I saw three other girls in the same hat in the restroom…

Hope you’re having a great weekend (free of running into ladies in the same outfit as you)!

    Don’t you look super cool, Kelly!  Love your hat addition to the outfit. Really, 3 girls with the same hat? That’s really insane.

    Three just in the restroom?! I guess this little hat just screamed Del Mar racetrack opening day. I love the crosshatch pattern and the grossgrain ribbon.
