Saratoga has a special place in my heart, always has. It has been my family’s annual vacation spot for over 20 years, a place where we can fawn over beautiful horses and most importantly the place where Casey proposed to me 2 years ago.
Saratoga Springs is located in upstate NY, just 15 minutes north of Albany. It’s a quaint and town full of charming houses and lovely people that have a fondness for horses. I look forward to my family vacation there each and every year not only for the horse and family time but also for the break from the heat.
In the past few years I have made it a tradition to splurge on a special dress just for the races.
This year I decided to go local and I purchased a sweet and flirty dress from a boutique in downtown Saratoga called Frivolous Boutique. I was immediately drawn to the polka dots, the cut and the overall race day vibe it was giving off. Just like any other horse race you may have attended, dresses and large hats are highly encouraged. I have also found that these things also pair quite nicely with a glass of prosecco on a warm day.
If you love horses, cocktails and a cool place to vacation in the summer then I suggest you book your next vacation to Saratoga Springs. It might just become your favorite vacation spot too!
