Dress Code?

If there’s anything to know about the Indy 500, it’s that it is a VERY casual event. We are talking jean shorts, tanks, sneakers, and everything red white and blue!  Whether you are dancing your face off in the snake pit, camping, or watching the race from the grand stands.. I’ve got you covered. I’m all about a good pair of heels and a killer dress… but you don’t want to be uncomfortable at the race. 

Black, White, and Everything Checkered

There’s a reason you’re seeing those checkered flags in the front yard of every Indy home owner this month. The checkered flag represents the final lap of the race! I love to see a little hint of checkered classic colors in an outfit.

Keep it Classy 

Maybe you want to stick to the classic graphic Indy 500 tees. Instead of wasting your time rumaging through goodwill.. take a look at the shop. I came across the shop while walking around Carson’s downtown at Circle Center. They offer many different designs that are all absolutely adorable!

SPF!!! It goes with EVERY outfit and is unisex! Seriously though, don’t forget to pack some extra. That sun will be beating down on you and the last thing you want to rock is a nasty sunburn.
