A Day At The Races

It’s October in Kentucky, y’all! That means many things, but one is fall season at Keeneland. A full month of horse racing and fine dressing, does it get much better than that? A day at the races is a Kentucky tradition.

What I pick to wear to the spring meet at Keeneland is much different than my picks for the fall. Spring meet outfits consist of florals, bright colors, and fascinators. My fall picks are full of neutral colors, plaid, and textures.

Bows & Plaid


This plaid skirt screams fall. I matched up the plaid with a light blue, breezy, bowed top. The suede black stripes down the sides of the skirt are a statement detail. So I paired the outfit with simple, black, suede heeled sandals. I CAN’T stress enough that your shoe choice for Keeneland must be functional! I’m not a Keeneland BETologist, but a 6-inch pair of stilettos is probably not going to be a winner. You can shop this exact top at https://www.amazon.com/shop/sara.j.baker for only $23!

Classic Two-Piece


I’m all about a classic two-piece. Navy is one of my favorite fall colors and this fun, full skirt is perfect for a paired of ruffled heeled mules. I spiced this two-piece up with some gold jeweled earrings.

Simple Sweater Dress


Sometimes I believe the more simple an outfit is, the better. This sweater-textured dress is a neutral color and perfect for fall. You don’t need to add unnecessary scarfs, necklaces, or accessories to make this outfit pop. Add a simple black clutch to hold your necessities and a comfy pair of black heeled-sandals. I’m also all about budget-friendly fashion and this dress is under $15.
