It’s really great to be back home in Saratoga Springs for the summer. Saratoga Race Course is one magical place and it’s been amazing having a chance to reconnect with my favorite venue. Being three years removed from Saratoga, I now look at the track with a new set of eyes. There is so much beauty at “The Spa” and in this photo diary, photographer Hannah Lux is able to capture a day at the races, #CiaratogaStyle!

When Hannah reached out to me regarding a race track themed photo shoot, I was ecstatic. I love connecting with creative minds and together we decided to have this shoot encompass moments at Saratoga that many can relate to and show the classic spirit of the sport as well as the race track.
She nailed it.
Reading the racing program for the day.
After all, this is Saratoga Springs. Pack your own water bottle and enjoy fresh spring water between the races.
How awesome is this shirt? I ordered it online through the Wish App for $8 and waited six weeks for it to arrive from China. It is perfect for a day at the races as it can be dress up with a skirt, or a pair of trousers like I wore on this occasion. I can’t wait to rock it with a pair of jeans this fall!

As much as I love to bet at the automated machines, sometimes you just need to go to a teller!
Official milliner of the Breeders’ Cup, Christine A. Moore is the genius behind this amazing fascinator. It is simple, elegant and doesn’t obstruct my view of the ponies. Her creations are available online via custom order, or head out to local Saratoga shops Encounter Boutique and Saratoga Trunk to try and buy!
Thank you so much for these amazing photos, Hannah!
