Churchill Downs- Downs After Dark Night Racing

Posted on Sep 10 2014 - 2:50pm by katemelican

When live racing is taking place at Churchill Downs, you can always find Jake and me at the night races. Churchill Downs offers a series of Downs After Dark racing nights during their fall and spring meet, that are designed to be a social night out at the races. Typically they have themes and there is a live band and activities to lure people into horse racing. Plus, there is always really good people watching… my favorite. Friday was the first one for the fall meet and I brought my friend Avery (instagram @a_campbell01) to experience the fun.

So I decided to wear this Yumi Kim Skirt with this JCrew Striped Tank. It was really hot and humid out so I needed to stay cool. However, with it being September I did not want it to look to summery. September is a transition month between summer and fall wardrobes, so I stick to the rule wear your most fall summer pieces and your most summer fall pieces.

I love the mixed print look, so the floral with stripes combination was just perfect. When I mix prints I usually mix a geometric with an abstract. I feel like two abstracts or two geometrics can look mis-matched rather than put together.

I accessorized with my Marley Lilly monogrammed sun hat, again to stay cool and a brown woven JCrew belt, with black Tory Burch sandals.
