Surely you’re thinking, “Racing, again?” No one is as surprised as I am! The things a girl will do for the man she cares about apparently include wearing a pair of jeans in +35°C and waking up at 5:30 am. Despite the minor glitches, which included boiling in the sun and walking half a marathon, I was more than excited to support E and his team at the Toronto Indy.
As an unofficial (though definitely enthusiastic!) part of the team, I have rare access to the pit lane of the races, which I must admit is worth boiling in denim for. For safety reasons, it is a requirement for everyone in the pit lane to be entirely covered. This limits fashion options, but I cannot complain, as the weekend was tons of fun.I am wearing ( first and second outfits): ♥ Club MonacoIman Silk Shirt in Camel ♥ Club Monaco Zowie Skirt ♥ Wilfred Little Moon Chiffon Blouse ♥ 7 for All Mankind Skinny Jeans in Rinsed Indigo ♥ Michael Kors Watch ♥ 3.1 Phillip Lim Simon Sunnies
For those of you who are dating an athletic type, or who are yourself in the sports industry, you should of course gear up for a day of activities by paying close attention to the dress code (safety first!). In this case, accessories will be your best friend. My personal favorite is a hat, as it not only protects your face from the sun but also takes care of any hair styling woes. And of course, be generous with the SPF!I am wearing: ♥ Team Shirt ♥ 7 for All Mankind Skinny Jeans in Rinsed Indigo ♥ Club Monaco Cassidy Fedora ♥ Repetto "Rose Amour" Ballerinas ♥ Michael Kors Watch
Friday, I wore a simple skirt with a blouse and avoided the pit lane. Saturday, I wore a silk blouse with an open back. As for the final race on Sunday, it was all about team spirit with a racing shirt supporting E’s team. Every outfit was topped off with my new Club Monaco hat, a pair of 3.1 Philip Lim sunnies and my all-time favorite Repetto ballerinas.
How do you support your man in his pursuits?
