Hey guys! So I justttt realized that this post has been sitting in my drafts and I had completely forgot to post it! Whoops! But I’ve mentioned before that one of the most commonly asked questions I get here is what to wear to a NASCAR race – especially when you’re spending the day in the pits. So I figured that today I could take you through race weekend with me and share some tips.
Talladega is certainly a unique experience. People go ALL OUT for this race and it’s honestly tough to distinguish the real race fans from college kids dressed up for the day. It’s GREAT. Plus, Talladega has a long road in the infield where people set up elaborate (and often times inappropriate) campgrounds – Talladega Boulevard – so we went there after the race to have a few drinks and enjoy the best people watching around.
Be sure to scroll to the bottom of this post to watch the vlog and see what I mean 😉
As for what to wear for a NASCAR race, I struggle to death with this! Since I worked in the sport for six years, I want to dress casually and comfortably, but I also want to look nice as an extension of my husband. I always suggest wearing something flowy and light because you will be walking around on hot asphalt in direct sunlight. I typically wear cotton maxi dresses or loose shorts and a tank. If you do opt for heels, which I don’t recommend, make sure to choose a wedge or block heel because you will inevitably be walking a ton!

Hi boos! I hope your week is going well 🙂 Per my last post, I am packing for our bi-annual trip to Daytona Beach for the NASCAR race. Priority one is obviously cheering on Jeremy, but I love going because we get to stay in the most adorable retro pink motel that y’all have seen countless times here on the blog. I recently received an order in from Urban Outfitters and was pleasantly surprised by how feminine and well-fitting the dresses were! UO is typically a bit too trendy for me – I gravitate more toward classic pieces – but I fell in love with these and want to share with y’all today a few that I have packed for our beach trip!
Let’s start with my hands-down FAVORITE – this adorable fruit-print mini dress. From the silhouette to the print to the puff sleeves, it is serious perfection! I ordered my typical size and it fits like a glove and stays secure across the chest. The only thing I would advise is that if you have a large bust, you might want to skip on this because I am part of the itty bitty titty committee and its definitely snug. I have seen this pretty alllll over Instagram, so I would say if you love it, to grab it QUICK because things tend to sell out fast.
Random aside but have y’all heard all the hype around Joe Rogan’s interview with Bob Lazar about his documentary on Netflix? My cousin sent me the link yesterday and while I was getting some work done, I played the whole two-hour interview and now I feel like my brain is about to explode. I began watching the documentary as well, but it seemed a little too out there for my liking. Regardless though, the podcast is a must listen!
Hi, loves! I never sit still for long and with a ton of upcoming travel planned, I have taken to Amazon to prepare. First up for us is Daytona Beach for the Fourth of July and we’re busy making plans for Charleston and Myrtle Beach later in the Summer. So today I wanted to share what’s in my Amazon cart and what I have already pulled the trigger on.
Let’s start with the items I already own… these Valentino dupe sandals, specifically. They come in 13 colors, are less than $20, and I am beyond impressed with the quality. My only suggestion is to size up one half size because they do run a little small.
Packing cubes are another MUST for me because my suitcase basically becomes a crazy mess explosion the minute I open it. I picked up these flamingo-print packing cubes and now keep swimwear, PJs, dirty clothes, shoes, etc all separate and organized on vacay.
As for what’s in my cart, I have heard so many fabulous reviews about this cosmetics case that I think it’s time to make it mine. As my makeup collection grows, I find it harder and harder to leave behind favorite products when I travel so your girl needs more space for alllll the goods!
Let me know in the comments below if you’ve purchased any must-haves from Amazon lately.
