Kentucky Derby Style: Black and White

We all know that when it comes to Derby, it’s all about the hat. And lately it’s not just hats that fit the Derby bill. In the last few years, it’s become all about the fascinator and today’s is an out of the park beauty by Kenzie Kapp.

Kenzie is one talented gal and I seriously recommend hitting up her studio, The Mill, if you’re still looking for something special. If you’re coming in from out of town and staying downtown, run down to Main Street and see her. The studio is the most colorful corner in Louisville and Kenzie may be one of the friendliest gals you’ll ever meet.

This pink feathery confection is the perfect topper to this graphic Milly set. Up until slipping this on, I wasn’t that in to midi-skirts but this one may have changed my mind. Going with a graphic black and white option gives you the ability to go wild with your hat/headpiece. So if you’re stumped on what to wear, pick your favorite little black or white dress and then go all out on top.

Wondering where to wear something like this? Think the fancy, indoor areas like the Turf Club, 4th Floor Terrance, Matt Winn Room or Jockey Club Suites. Or ditch the hat and wear it to one of the Derby Eve galas (come see me at the Hermitage Grand Gala) – just add some bold jewelry to add a little party pizzazz.

p.s. – you still have time to order a dress in time for Kentucky Oaks/Derby so if you’re still looking for options, head over here.

Kentucky Derby Style: Bright Blue

Today’s look feels fancy to me. It may be because I feel like Lee – today’s friend/model – is fancy (she’s always on the best vacations) or it may be the Kenzie Kapp fascinator but I feel like this is a have tickets to the {Turf Club/Jockey Club Suites/5th Floor Clubhouse} fancy. Okay but not too fancy and definitely not stuffy but just like you should be hanging in a elite area of the track. It doesn’t hurt that this fascinator is beyond fabulous. I love the floral/feather pairing and again, anything with height is a friend of mine.

I’ve clearly been digging a lot of the more non-traditional Derby looks this year with lots of rompers and skirt combos and this crop combo is one of my favorites – maybe cause it looks like a dress here but can offer way more options. This Milly cropped tank could end up being one of the most versatile pieces in your closet. Wear it with high-waisted skirts, shorts or denim (would look so cute with dark flares). This skirt will also get lots of wear and could go just as easily with a tee and ankle boots as it would with heels and a great blouse for work. Clearly I’m all about stretching your buck when it comes to dropping coin on a Derby look!

If you’re on the hunt for a great dress definitely stop in to see the gals at Clodhoppers. I’ve bought many a Derby dress there and the gals are always honest about what works and what doesn’t. They’ve also got TONS of Milly options along with other great designers like Alice + Olivia, Trina Turk and more. Tell ’em I sent you!

Gotta run because Derby madness at work is consuming my life. Happy Wednesday and remember only 24 days ’til Derby!
