Summer Whites: A Day at the Races
Il fait beau, and we couldn’t be more pleased! Summer’s arrival marks the beginning of many outdoor activities from which we’ve been forced to abstain all year, like spending the day at the races—and going shopping for the perfect trackside outfit! Paris’s periphery is home to a number of major racecourses that hold events throughout the summer and fall. Le Prix de Diane Longines is coming up June 17, followed by Le Grand Prix de Saint-Cloud on June 24.
Tory Burch may be American, but she certainly knows how to design pieces that are parfait in any language. No matter which continent you’re on, when you’re attending an outdoor event in the summer, a white dress is practically de rigueur. These simply chic Berdine eyelet and Leena dresses will keep you cool au soleil, and a pair of wedges is the way to go whenever you might be walking on the grass. For accessories, we went natural with neutrals and added pops of red with jewelry and this adorable Panama hat. After the races, we recommend a sunset picnic on the grass in the shadow of the Eiffel Tower. There is no better way to end a day in Paris!
