Derby Down South


     On the first Saturday of May at Churchill Downs, one of the most exciting and most fashionable events of the year is happening! I'm talking about the Kentucky Derby, one of the premier horse racing events around. And though the thoroughbreds might be the contenders for the Tripple Crown, you can cap on your own Tripple Crown with ultra-fashionable derby inspired attire! For those who may be attending the derby, this post might help you come up with an outfit to wear, and even if you aren't (like me), it's still fun to look at the styles and maybe even pick up inspiration for other days!

     It's even more exciting because for the third year in a row, Vineyard Vines is the official outfitter of the derby. They released an absolutely amazing Kentucky Derby collection, filled with beautiful bright dresses and adorable printed bow ties, and lots of other goodies too! The great thing is, you can buy the derby attire online or at Vineyard Vines stores too. So, you're bound to not miss out on the fun, and hey, who says you can't do your own darn derby thing?

     My favorite part of the derby is the dresses! I love seeing all the lovely ladies dressed up in bright or beautifully patterned dresses. It's the perfect venue to break out a dress you might've been too shy to break out before. I also really like the hats, they remind me of ones my grandma wears to church. Big, bold, and beautiful! I think pastel flats or Keds would make a perfect substitution for heels or wedges, and they're definitely playfully fun.
