The Rolex Red Carpet: Eventing Divas!

Today was the first day of the Best Weekend All Year! I was able to live stream most of the jog, excepting a few riders (class is overrated anyways). I love seeing all the riders dressed up and the horses groomed to a perfect shine. It was a blustery day, and the riders and horses were definitely feeling the spring air. All of the girls' hair was blowing in the wind, so there was quite a movie-like scene. Pink seemed to be a big theme this year!

Katie Ruppel's blue dress was so modern and sleek, and the pink collar gave it an extra sparkle. Her pink flats were colorful but practical.

I absolutely loved Madeline Backus's bright copper-red hair against her understated navy blue dress. Her black boots added a stylish edge.

Will Faudree made an impression in a bright white, clean, crisp suit paired with black boots (from my days working in the boot store, I can guess these are caimen or gator boots).

Allie Sackson looked downright elegant in a periwinkle dress with a small, cream derby hat which paired perfectly with her spotless grey, Sparrow's Nio.

Phillip Dutton sported a baseball cap for about the only thing that I'd be okay with - for #TeamLeeLee, paired with a tailored suit and a pink tie.

Rachel McDonough's dotted tea dress was stunning, and her tie-up flats added an extra element of style.

Bobby Meyerhoff's red coat and gray pants made a classic combination in what made me think of a not-so-subtle nod to foxhunting.

Matt Brown may be one of the only people who can pull off a plaid tie with a plaid jacket with a plaid cap but it works in shades of complementary gray.

Last but not least, Jolie Wentworth was darling in a pretty spring floral dress and nude flats.

Horse Mention:

Caroline Martin's Spring Easy made such a statement I had to mention his shiny, light chestnut coat.

Who made the biggest fashion statement to you?
