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!
