White pants

I'm back from my quick impromptu road trip to Churchill Downs in Louisville KY. 

I will talk more about my experience when I edit some photos from my real camera.  It was fun and I'm glad I did it, but I think my expectations were much higher. Both in terms of Churchill Downs and that whole experience as well as the Triple Crown celebration and American Pharoah's "victory lap".  Tell me what you think victory lap means in terms of a winning horse.

Churchill Downs has "Downs After Dark" which is night racing.  Apparently that's relatively new to Churchill.  The track didn't have lights for quite some time I guess. This is what my friend told me.  Saturday the theme was "White Party".  They said "wear your best summer whites".   I don't wear white.  Ever.  It's an invitation to spill something on myself.  But I was told from a friend that lives in Louisville that I really really really should wear white.  I didn't want to be the only person not in white. Hindsight is that it would have been no big deal.  Friday after work I went to Gordman's and grudgingly shopped for white capris.   I found an outfit.  The capris were a size 12.  Whoop!  That made me want to buy them even if they were white.  And you know what?  I felt like I really rocked the outfit.  I think getting ready and wearing this outfit was the most fun of the whole day. 

So maybe I'm mocking the jockey, but really I was thinking "yay!  Look at me in my size 12 white pants!"  Ha ha! :)

I honestly wish I had "hair".  Like a cute hair style.  But that is likely to never happen.  Saturday morning I did gel it up and let it dry down. I actually wore it down all the way to Louisville.  But that was all I could handle.  It was a hot day and I had no desire to wear it down once I was outside.  So back it went.  Oh well.   

I got through the night without getting anything on my white pants.  I have no clue why they would have a white theme at a racetrack.  The seats were all dusty.  I had to wipe off every seat I sat on.  No way was I walking around with a dusty butt.  

Now the big question is how do you keep white clothing white?  Do I wash these or get them dry cleaned?  I try not to buy white t-shirts cause I feel like over time they get dingy from washing.  I won't wear these much I'm sure so maybe washing will be fine.   Any advice peeps?  What products to use?  They are so comfortable and cute.  Maybe I'll wear them to a ballgame or something.
