Style Spotting + Favorite Things: It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year! Kentucky Oaks and Derby 140

After a couple years of less than stellar weather, Mother Nature smiled on Kentucky Derby 140 for what was a beautiful day at the track. I spent the day with friends while keeping track of everyone’s beautiful looks via instagram and facebook.

Putting together this post is always a favorite for me because I love seeing what everyone wore to the Race for the Roses. Lots of color, lots of amazing hats and fascinators, lots and lots of gorgeous dresses. If there’s one thing Louisville ladies know how to do, it’s how to bring it for Derby.

If you’ve had Derby on your bucket list for a while, I suggest you start planning on attending next year now (and book mark this post on what to wear). You won’t regret it. Seriously, you won’t.
