It’s been a while since I’ve done a “Where R U Going” post, so I wanted to share my experience at this year’s Grand Prix. I didn’t do my research before attending one, but thankfully I was prepared. Some things to consider before attending such an event:
WEATHER: As with any outside event, it’s important to check the forecast. For some reason, it was very windy, and with the weather being so indecisive, I decided to wear a hat and an ensemble that can combat the temperamental weather. If you’re wearing a hat, make sure it will win a fight against the wind. If you’re not too fond of a hat, make sure your hair is styled to resist the wind.
HANDBAG: If you’re watching the event indoors, then skip this section. However, for those who are watching outside, you’ll probably want to carry a handbag that’s durable enough to carry a small umbrella (if applicable), sunscreen, and other essentials. I recommend a tote or a bucket bag; something that’s not too big, but still functional.
SHOES: As a HUGE fan of heels, I do not recommend wearing stilettos. Keep in mind that your feet are most likely your means of transportation for the duration of the day. That’s a lot of walking and standing (assuming you’re outside). But if you think you can handle it, by all means, walk it out in those stilettos. If you’re looking for comfort, but not interested in wearing sneakers, try wearing boots with a flat or block heel, or flats that are comfortable.
EYEWEAR: As I said earlier, the day was unpredictable (weather-wise), so I also brought my sunglasses. When it wasn’t raining or windy, the glare from the sun was brutal. So carrying a pair of sunglasses is vital. The point of attending a Grand Prix is to see the race. So squinting should not be an option. Ha!
I want to thank you for making NRJS a part of your day, and I’ll see you next post!
