This weekend I went to my first thoroughbred horse race at the Del Mar race grounds. To be honest, these things aren’t really me. People throwing money on odds that are against them, designer shoes, wide-brimmed hats.. ok I do love me a good hat. But even more than a big hat, I love me a sundress.
The horse races weren’t quite as I expected. The excitement was almost near that of the downtown Seattle during the 2014 Superbowl. It was nice to be in the sunshine and admiring the power of these fantastically strong creatures.
A plus size sundress for the Del Mar horse races:
I bought this dress for a brunch get-together but never ended up going. The hem is actually 2 inches higher than show but due to less than great craftsmanship the stitching fell and it became slightly longer than I would like. These pumps are also the greatest (minus the blister from standing around the ring all day). The bottom of my nude pumps have rubber soles so walking is a breeze and I don’t have to worry about slipping down stairs like some of my other pumps.
