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.

Kentucky Derby Style: Pink Printed

Sorry for ducking out with no dress of the day last Friday. I was in Lexington for a work event that had me running around like a crazy person. Thankfully it was for a pretty fun launch of the new Moet & Chandon Champagne – Moet Ice – which is created to be served on ice. Basically it is my new spring cocktail of choice. Find it, try it.

Shameless work plug aside, it’s back to the grind on all things Derby at work and here on the blog. If you’ve been wanting to see more hats, I totally understand, fascinators are everywhere right now and I do tend to favor them. But I still love me a hat and today’s is a beauty. Simple yet a total standout piece by Maureen’s Creations. This hat would look great with a ton of different dresses thanks to its classic color palette. I love it paired with this pink and black fit and {slight} flare from Dress & Dwell.

If you’re looking for a pink dress for the Kentucky Oaks but don’t want to do anything too girly, you’re going to want this dress (it’s only $52!). The black gives it a little edge that pink-adverse girls will love. You can also go edgier on shoes and bags or keep it classic like we did here.
