Off to the Races



I have finally found a moment to take a break from my last minute studying attempts to update about my wonderful past 4 days.  Easter weekend this year happened to be one of the busiest for students attending the 81st Annual Carolina Cup in Camden, South Carolina this past Saturday.

Students from colleges in the Carolinas & beyond gather together with friends and family to partake in socialization activities, as well as watch some magnificent horses run their hearts out in this steeple chase event.


On the other side of the fence, within the tents and waving flags representing colleges from all over the states, you are overwhelmed by a sea of brightly patterned clothing.  From the latest Lilly Pulitzer Spring collection of dresses to the Vineyard Vines patterned bow ties, the ladies and gents attending Carolina Cup looked as fabulous as ever.

Naturally, I am not a fan of ‘prep’ for ladies but I find it heart-throbbing on boys.  In order to match my date (of 2 years) and prepster boyfriend’s green Ted Baker pants and white Ralph Lauren sport shirt, I turned to Nasty Gal to find me the perfect dress that wouldn’t feel too out-of-my-element.  Online, I found myself a white & mint cutout dress that I am borderline obsessed with.

And not one spill of beverage or speck of mud touched my color-vulnerable ‘Saturday’ best.
