Beauty, style

the one about the Kentucky Derby

The Kentucky Derby is just shy of 2 weeks away. I’ve always had dreams of going to the derby. Even made plans with friends twice. But no plans ever actually went forward. So every year I dream of what I would wear if I ever get to go to the derby. Some things may accidentally end up in my cart anyway . . .


You can never go wrong with classic black and white. It reminds me of Eliza Doolittle.  I may or may not have annoyed my family by watching that movie so many times when I was younger. I did – also the entire family has the movie memorized so it was actually a win.

A perfect, spring, floral dress is the first place I always go when dreaming of my derby outfit. This one has clean and classic lines to keep things chic.

Watercolor dresses are all over the place these days, so why not take it to the derby. I love the bright colors and the biggest hat of all to go right along with it.

What would you wear to the derby? Anybody get to actually go?
