And we’re off to the r-r-races again! The 40th running of The Foxfield Races is this Saturday, and we styled this off the shoulder dress to get Miss Foxy Field ready for the races – in chic Virginia style.
The Foxfield Races are an annual tradition in the Charlottesville and University of Virginia community. And what better way to get ready for the races than shopping locally for this local event?!
Some years it’s rainy and overcast for the big day of races, and other years it’s hot and humid. This year looks like it will be more along the lines of the latter, with a high of 91 and a sunny forecast. So don’t forget your sunblock and your sunhat, ladies!
An easy, breezy dress is perfect of the races, and so are practical shoes. These white sandals are perfect for those sunny Summer days ahead, and ideal for romping around in the grass during the races. As simple as the silhouette of this dress may seem, the vibrant color and lace detail is a fun, flirty nod to the University’s orange and blue school colors.
Add a little nod to the Virginia landscape and all the Virginia love with this hand engraved “Virginia” pendant necklace. Support local, support handmade, shop local, and shop consignment, Virginia darlings!
What are you wearing to the races, darlings?! Comment and let us know!
P.S. If you can name the movie that song is from, you win a million Monopoly dollars and a lifelong friendship with Linnea.
