Just a short Metra train ride out of Chicago can take you back decades in time to an era of class and sophistication... kind of seeing a trend here with my last "Mad Men" post. Anyways, I recently made the trek out of the city to Arlighton Park Racetrack and instantly fell in love with the setting's unique charm.
Horse racing has been a huge part of Chicago's history since the early 1800s, and the tradition lives on thanks to Arlington Park. Men in bow ties and women in giant hats occupy the stands hoping to win money on their horse of choice. My personal strategy-pick the one with the weirdest name, but don't take my advice if you are looking to get lucky.
Originally, this invitation was inspired by Tonia's inspiration board on Style Me Pretty. We're so excited that they are available on our site now! And, be sure to plan a trip to Arlington Park Racetrack soon too!
