What to wear to Keeneland for the Shadwell Turf Mile…
It looks like this Saturday in Lexington will be a pretty cool and crisp fall day, so it is the perfect time to try out a new fall trend. The fall trend that is still going strong from last winter and spring is the pastel trend. Think mint green, pastel pinks, and baby blues. Try a sweet short sleeve pastel pink dress. For a sophisticated look try a mint dress with a feminine sash.
If pastel all over is too much for your taste, then try just a hint of pastel, like a baby blue cardigan layered over a dress or blouse. You can even try pastels in your accessories like pastel pointy toe t-strap flats or a pink pastel race day hat.
Your pastel look will keep you looking sharp from breakfast all the way through the Shadwell Turf Mile!
