What I Would Wear: Kentucky Derby




In honor of the Kentucky Derby this weekend,  I had to do a post on derby wear - obviously.  I put together two looks - one for the Kentucky Oaks, which takes place the day before the Derby and is all women horses (it's all pink, so of course it's super cute); the second look is for the Derby and is slightly fancier.   FYI - this is for the Grand stands at the races not the infield which is a disaster, seriously.   

Wether you are going to the Derby or a derby party this weekend - I hope you celebrate the weekend in derby style with a fancy hat or a mint julep in hand - horse races just make everything more fun!
