Another Day at the Races

       Once a year I head to Saratoga Racetrack with my parents towards the end of summer. We go up super early in the morning and get breakfast at the racetrack. If you're from the 518 area, I definitely recommend breakfast at the track because they have an awesome buffet with every breakfast item you can imagine (including some mimosa's!) and you get to eat outside at the rail and watch the horses warm up.
     After breakfast, since the races don't actually start until 1:00 we always head to downtown Saratoga (much to my dads dismay) for some shopping. My mom and I prefer to spend our money on clothes rather than bets... my poor dad really feels the pressure to hit a big race after we get done with shopping. They have a variety of stores including a Talbots (my mom's favorite), Loft, Banana Republic, Gap and a Pink Paddock (which is our local Lilly Pulitzer store). Thank god I bought a bunch of stuff at the Lilly Summer Sale because everything is so expensive at the Pink Paddock, they never have sales. I ended up getting a necklace and pencil skirt on clearance at Talbots, and the Blue Oxford Shirt from Banana that I've had my eye on for 40% which, I'm stoked about. 

    I only won $10 at the track...which didn't make up for my spending spree from earlier in the day but it was a fun day out with my parents. My dress was from Target (got it a couple years ago), my bangle was from Kate Spade and my clutch was from ALDO. I've attempted to re-create my outfit with similar styles since none of the stuff I wore is still available, except for my Dog Lover necklace and my Ray-Bans

Whats your summer tradition?
