Outfit Planning: Derby Style

Kentucky Derby Outfitdress | hat | bag | necklace | wedges

Derby season is here!  Last year, I went to the Belmont Stakes (one of the three Triple Crown races) and I couldn’t help but fall in love with the derby culture.  It’s not so much about the horse racing as it is about getting gussied up in a feminine dress and an over the top hat and making an entire day out of a two-minute race.  It’s equal parts pageantry and shenanigans.  So whether you’re going to the Derby this season or are looking for the perfect spring outfit, I’ve got a few fabulous looks for you!

    I try to make it back up to NY each year where I grew up to attend the horse races. I love seeing the fashion there- the cute dresses and biggggg hats!
