Queens Plate

We went to the Queens plate. The stanley Cup of horse racing in Ontario. Everyone dresses up. It's a lovely fun filled afternoon spent at the race track. It's one of my favourite times of year. Can you blame me? I get to dress up in all things magical, beautiful and vintage!

my man friend. Isn't he dapper? What a gem. He makes my heart go pitter patter.

We went to the Queens Plate Sunday Afternoon. What a lovely day. Much to my surprise, I actually walked away from the races being up some money. I have a habit of walking away in the negative, in the hole. This year I was on. My man friend had quite the beginners luck, maybe some of it rubbed off on me?

The race track is slowly becoming my favourite place. We tend to flock there every year for the Queens plate. The one year we did not go was the year the Queen decided to go. I was miffed I missed her! 

We don't go to the races as much as we should anymore. It's a dying, under rated form of entertainment. How was your weekend? Did you go to the race track? 


  1. You both look so dapper! What a fun event to go to - I've never been to a horse race before.

    Your shawl and dress are the perfect color on you and such a fabulous silhouette. Of course, you already know I'm swooning over that flower in your hair:) You look flawless Hattie! xx Marisa

  2. Work that gorgeous coral, love it!


  3. Congrats on making some money on the races!

    You look simply darling. You seem to wear fascinators in an effortless way most never pull off too.


Comments rock my world. So spill it. Thanks!
