Kentucky Derby Style: DERBY DAY!

May 2, 2015

Happy Derby Day!

I don’t think I’ve ever been so excited to make it to Derby Day! Last night was the Hermitage Grand Gala and it was pretty great and crazy at the same time. Darius Rucker and Ne-Yo both performed which was amazing. It was a first time event so of course there were some small hiccups and growing pains but once the performances started, it turned into a huge party. If you want to see what the whole shindig was about, check out this slideshow of pics. 

But enough of that, it’s Derby Day! My Headcandi fascinator was delivered last night and I CANNOT wait to wear it to the track today. We’re heading out with some friends to celebrate the best day of the year in Kentucky. If you’re out at the track, tag me in your pictures and I’ll include them in my wrap up next week (@louwhatwear or send them to

Thank you so much to all the amazing local vendors who helped make this shoot possible. Dress & Dwell, Circe and Clodhoppers provided the colorful clothes; Headcandi, Kenzie Kapp and Maureen’s Creations with the beautiful hats and Dandelion with the perfect finishing touches. Whitney Neal snapped the great pics and Jaclyn Journey created the ridiculously gorgeous floral wall. You gals are all the best!
