A Day at the Races

I headed to the Royal Randwick Racecourse on a perfect Summer Saturday in Sydney. I love horses and the elegance of the races.

For the event, I wore a white dress from BCBG, Claudia Mourao silver heels, a Koku pineapple clutch, vintage sunglasses and a white hat from Forever New.

The Royal Randwick is a beautiful track and the grounds are impeccably maintained. 

We got a perfect viewpoint, right by the track, and promptly ordered a bottle of Brut Rose.

The horses are magnificent and I love the colorful jerseys the jockeys wear.

We watched some of the races from the upper balcony, which also has an expansive view of the city of Sydney. 

The races are a great place for fashion-spotting. I particularly loved this lady in blue, her YSL bag is fabulous as well.

Hats, or fascinators, are a key part of any race day outfit. Seeing all the great headpieces made me think of these fantastically fun fascinators I saw at Marie Mercie in Paris over the Christmas holiday. You can bet I will have one at the championship races in April!
