Opening Day at the Del Mar Racetrack in San Diego is as big a day as the Kentucky Derby. Everyone who is everyone shows up and is dressed to the nines. Think big hats, floral dresses, men in suits, and delicious cocktails all while betting on the ponies, it’s an event that you have to experience at least once in your life, whether you’re from SD or not!
If you know me, which I’m sure you do by now, I’m all about the outfit. LOL A day at the track is the best time to get dressed up and I spared no expense. I found this gorgeous blue Parker dress from a boutique in Del Mar called Pebbles. Ask for Nikki if you call or visit, she’s a total sweetheart! I love this gorgeous blue color and the lace detailing on the bottom completely won me over!
Having attended Opening Day for years, I knew it would be pretty warm and I wanted something strapless so I didn’t walk away from the day with major tan lines. This dress had it all! I also found this gorgeous fascinator on Amazon for like $19. I actually ordered it the day before, thank you Amazon Prime! LOL I wanted something that was still eye catching but I didn’t want to knock Rick out when we took pictures or went in for a kiss! 🙂
In case you missed opening day don’t worry, they have races from now until September 5, you can check the schedule here, and I for one cannot wait. Don’t worry if you know absolutely nothing about better, like me, I just choose my horse based off of their name! haha They also have concerts after the races on the weekends. Cold War Kids, tomorrow, fun!! I’d love to plan a fun day at the track if anyone is interested, let me know!! XO
