lovely ladies in lovely hats
It should come as no surprise that I'm a big fan of hats. Always have been, always will be. So I jumped at the chance to attend this year's Virginia Gold Cup, espcially when friends invited us to join the Eleventh Street Lounge bus trip. Sure, a glimpse into blueblood horse country culture is fun. Unlimited booze and a spot "on the rail" at Virginia's biggest steeplechase event of the season? Good times, especially when you've got transportation there and back. But the real reason I was so excited to go? The hats.
Danny rocks his wife's hat... and this is just on the bus trip out!

crisp and tasty
Katie sports some bling to match her chapeau

fabulous even in repose
this family is so cute it hurts
Don't worry, the gents have some fashion options too. I'm not saying they're good options, per se, but choices abound!

And, finally, MY hat! Something borrowed, something blue. Mark doesn't like how he looks in this picture so unfortunately I had to crop him out. But he wasn't wearing a hat anyway...
