{preakness 2017 with the stronach group}

This past weekend I had the honor of being invited to attend the Preakness, the second leg of the Triple Crown, with The Stronach Group in Baltimore, MD. It was a day full of friends, gorgeous outfits, horse racing, celebrity sightings, tasty food, and delicious drinks. The night ended with a crazy dance party! I took a ton of pictures during the day to try and capture the excitement of everything (from the Bloody Mary and Bellini bar to the trophies being brought in to the Winner's Circle). I'm also sharing the details of what I wore below - maybe next year I'll have the courage to find a really fun hat/fascinator to pair with my dress!

If last weekend was a glimpse as to how great this summer is going to be we're off to a phenomenal start! I've been to the Preakness before but only to the Mug Club (a verrrryyy different experience haha) which is a massive field party full of kegs and live performances in the Infield. The experience this year was so amazing I feel like it was still a dream. Being that close to the action was a rush like no other - you could feel the horses run past you right next to the finish line! Of course there's no adrenaline rush like cheering for your horse to win ;) The Stronach Group's tent was right next to the Winner's Circle and in front of the finish line - we were able to stand right next to the trophies and see the final seconds of the race. I didn't win any money gambling on some of the races but it was sure fun to try. Maybe next year I'll do some more research beforehand - but nobody could have predicted the Always Dreaming upset!! I thought it was pretty neat that Cloud Computing's owner was from Baltimore though!

I'd say one highlight of the day was meeting Kevin Spacey. I mean WOW! Wasn't anticipating seeing that face on Saturday! We also saw Sam Hunt, Carson Kressley, the Mayor, and a couple of Baltimore Ravens players - Pimlico Race Track was the place to be y'all!! I can't wait to go back next year and relive the action all over again :) A huge thank you to BrandLink DC and The Stronach Group for inviting Kyle and me. It was a day for the books!

Love Always,
