off to the races

i wonder how many blog posts about horse races begin with that line.  tomorrow is the 70th annual nashville steeplechase.  if you’ve ever been to horse races before, you know that it’s a bit of a fashion show.   the men wear their easter best (lots of pastels), and the girls bust out their sundresses and big hats for the first time all year.  i plan on taking my camera – aka cell phone – with me tomorrow to take some pics for monday.

i had every intention of making a “kit” for what i was planning on wearing, but last night i was too tired to put anything together, so i’m stealing the one below from bearings nashville.  in all honesty, i don’t know if i could have done a better job than my friend and nashville bearings contributor paul of dreams of perfection fame.  he nails the essentials.  the weather is supposed to be rainy tomorrow, so if i had to add anything it would be bean boots.  there’s no reason to ruin a nice pair of shoes.
