I was warned beforehand that it was in essence a drunken mess, and if I saw a horse I would not be having the true foxfields experience. As a horse lover, the thought of buying a ticket to a horse race without the intention seems like blasphemy. Lucky for me however, our plot was right on the railing and I watched every single race, was sober, and even did some basic educating about horses in between to the boys in bowties that surrounded me that had never touched a horse!
I started to get very excited when we pulled up to a huge line of cars waiting to get into the infield at 9:30 in the morning, when the races don't even start until 1:30. The cars were full of preppy college aged kids, and most of them had classic UVA stickers on their rear windows.
Vineyard Vines was there giving koozies...
Jack Wills was there with adorable sunglasses and cups full of goodies....
I have found that I have a major weakness for a properly preppy

|I'm a sucker for seersucker. Or printed/embroidered pants. Just stick to one loud item and coordinate from there.|
It is important to be dressed properly including sun protection... and something to help block the excessive brightness of all the beauutiful preppy girls that surround you.
|You can't go wrong with Ray Bans.... attach them to a croakie so if a girl really catches your eye you can work on catching her's.|
I will try to recap on the girl's fashion later but I was slightlyyyyy distracted by all the perfectly preppily put together gentleman.
