We recently spent a beautiful afternoon at the Arlington Race Tracks. America’s Best Racing invited us to come to a party in a private suite with food, drinks and racing. How could I resist?
There’s something about going to the horse races that plucks you out of your everyday life and transports you to a classier, more refined era. Today, when ripped jeans and slip on sneakers are acceptable pretty much everywhere, it’s a welcome departure to go somewhere that requires a more elevated attire. I loved getting dressed up for the occasion, the excitement of the races, and the great conversations that were had while we were there.
A favorite moment of mine was chatting with amazing hat designer, Christine Moore, who’s designed for the likes of Jennifer Lopez, Katy Perry and Mary J. Blige. I got to play around with a bunch of her hats and fascinators and was definitely channeling my inner Kate Middleton.
If you’re in the Chicagoland area, I highly recommend an outing at Arlington Race Tracks. If you have a birthday or special occasion coming up, renting a private suite makes for a great evening as well!
