For us Kentuckians, this is a wonderful time of year. The horse races are in full swing at Keeneland which can only mean one thing....The Kentucky Derby is right around the corner. Now look, many a spectator is in it for the races; however, I am a horse of a different color (so bad, right, but how could I resist that pun). For me, the Derby is all about the fashion! What with the glamourous hats & the lady like dresses--it is a fashion spectator's dream. While I am loving the idea of a minimal stripe paired with a peplum (clearly, as I paired a very similar Look Last Year) , don't steer clear of vibrant hues or even florals. My gal Danielle of Lou What Wear is basically giving it to us live from Churchill Downs---she is doing a series this whole month illustrating different frocks that suit the different areas of the track--I am so loving this! Also, the lovely ladies over at AJs Casuals can outfit your look from head to toe--gorgeous dresses, fascinators, & hats galore! Even if you're not visiting the Bluegrass State for the races this year, throw a little soiree in honor of the horses---what better excuse to get all dolled up Southern Style! Make it a good one, gang!
