Honestly, I didn’t know Florida held a Derby Race each year. The winner from the Florida Derby race gets to compete in the Kentucky Derby Race. Which is literally right around the corner. The wonderful people from America’s Best Racing invited me to enjoy a day of racing at the Gulfstream Park. When I picture a derby race, I picture men and women betting and screaming for their favorite horses! It can get a little intense! It’s also one of the most fashionable event of the year. This year Kentucky Derby fashion will be covered by Johnny Weir and Tara Lipinski for NBC (E Online!).

I visited the Florida Derby race back  in March. The weather was so unpredictable that day. There were dark clouds above us and the humidity were extra high. My friend and the most amazing photographer, Janel Kilnisan joined me at the race. We took advantage of the empty grounds and she was able to get all these gorgeous shots.

When we finally sat down to enjoy the race while praying it doesn’t rain. I noticed more and more people filling the venue at the Gulfstream park. Also the skies started  to clear up. I was surprised to see so many young people at the event. I mean, the venue is free, parking is free and there was alcohol and food for purchase in every corner. It was actually exciting to see the race in action. I found myself screaming for the horse I picked, I should’ve bet on it!

Next time if you find yourself wonderful what do on the weekend, or you just want to check out this amazing venue and sport, you’re in luck! The racing continues…check out the dates here.

I’m a sucker for festival fashion. Traveling and experiencing major music festivals are in my bucket list. Since work obligation limits my travel time, for now I just love to browse through other blogs and magazine articles for festival style inspirations. Kimonos are one of the most essential piece of clothing for festival season. I love the simplicity and the easy, breezy way of pairing a Kimono with almost  anything. Another must-have accessory for the festival season is a good ole’ hat. The best place to find those hats are at any Forever 21 stores. Check out their amazing look book for some major dose of festival fashion inspiration.

As you can see, I’ve been a little MIA on my blog posts. There is a fun, creative and awesome project I’m working on and will reveal to you all soon. It involves something I’ve been passionate for a while. I already gave a little hint in this blog post, let’s see who figures it our first!
