Kentucky Derby!!

The Kentucky Derby is tomorrow (which also happens to be Cinco de Mayo and my dad's birthday), so I've put together a how-to fashion post for the big event! Enjoy!

The Kentucky Derby is perfect for sporting your Lilly Pulitzer and Vineyard Vines! I prefer seersucker over anything, so I would go straight to Lilly to find a strapless dress. They have a lot of great items in pink, white, and light blue! Also, Vineyard Vines has an adorable patchwork strapless dress for the occasion. 

...and you definitely can't forget about the perfect derby hat! My favorite oversize sun-hat of all time is from Marley Lilly. It's great because you can personalize it! What's better than a monogrammed hat to go with your seersucker dress?

Vineyard Vines is the official brand of the Kentucky Derby this year, and I have to say they have really outdone themselves. I have truly fallen in love with VV this year, and I think that they have great items for men! The seersucker suit is just perfect - I love, love, love it. But, if your man doesn't want to dive headfirst into preppy waters, start off with seersucker pants, a blazer, or a seersucker bowtie/tie! My brother has a trillion seersucker ties and bowties and they're great!

What do y'all think is good to wear for the Kentucky Derby? Who's going? Let me know!!

Have a great day!

  1. You could not be more spot on! Haha this is my third year attending Oaks and Derby! I am actually wearing the Lilly pink Aleesa dress :) btw I see you're going to Wake Forest, my friend Oriana Ngo is going there and y'all are so similar! She loves all things preppy as well, add her on facebook!

    btw love your blog :)

  2. I watched it, because my family is part owner of Dullahan, who showed! I definitely think Lilly's the way to go!
