Kentucky Derby Style: Peachy

It’s Derby Week! 

Kentucky Derby fever is in the air – the Derby Festival Balloon Race on Friday, the Marathon/Mini-Marathon on Saturday and the Cherokee Triangle Art Fair all weekend. This week will be full of parties (we hosted a really fun one on Friday – more on that in another post), the Derby Festival Parade and for me, lots of final preparations for our big event at work – the Hermitage Grand Gala.

It’s also the last week of the Derby series around here. I’ll be bummed when it’s over but it will also be good to get back to the regular routine. Until then though, it’s going to be an all out bonanza of Derby looks. I’m guessing by now, most people have rounded up their outfit, but if not, I’ve got lots more inspiration to come.

So let’s get to it. Today’s look is so sweet and southern – it’s like a glass of sweet tea in a dress. Perfect for a southern belle spending the day sipping mint juleps in a 3rd Floor Clubhouse box.

Kentucky Derby Style: Dark Roses

One week away. Can you believe it? I can and can’t. Lord knows that the Derby chaos set in a couple weeks ago but it also kind of feels like it snuck up on me. It’s the final countdown. Time to get your plans, hats and outfits in order. Oh and if you need help getting race day ready (read: hair and makeup), call today’s model Shannon at her blow out bar and all around get ya ready spot Primp Salon.

When it comes to your dress, if you’re in Louisville – I can definitely recommend hitting up the local boutiques. They are getting in new gear ALL. THE. TIME. Seriously, I know from experience. I was lucky enough to have popped in to Clodhoppers as they unloaded a huge shipment. I may or may not have snuck out with this (and it was the only one they got!). They had SO much good stuff. So stop in there (tell ’em I sent you) or hop into Circe, Rhodes, Blush, Collections or Dress & Dwell where today’s dark floral strapless stunner is from.

This dress photographed beautifully but was even cuter in person.For those perfectly petite gals, this would be a great gala dress but would be equally gorgeous for the Turf Club or Jockey Club Suites. You may think you have to go bright and preppy for Derby but I think a dress like this makes a bold, beautiful statement for the day. I loved it so much that I tried to squeeze in to it to no avail. I really wanted to fit in to it for the Hermitage Grand Gala but alas, the hunt for what to wear to that continues.
