Happy Kentucky Derby!

I have always wanted to go to the Kentucky Derby!

If you follow me on any of my social media, you know that I wear fascinators and pillbox hats; therefore, the obvious place to wear hats like I do (other than a royal wedding of course) is the Kentucky Derby!

It also doesn’t hurt that a large majority of the best looking Patriots players attend…Amendola, Edelman, Brady, Garoppolo, Gronk…just to name a few…

Since today is the Kentucky Derby, I thought I would share with you all some ideas of what I would like to wear if I were to attend the race!

Look #1 is how I envision a “classic” derby look

Kentucky Derby - Classic


Gingham is one of the most classic prints. Black and white is equally as classic, pairing black and white with read puts this look over the top. I think one of my favorite parts of this look is actually the stunning black ring.


Look #2 is probably my favorite.   I consider it the more “couture” look

Kentucky Derby - Couture


I love the monochromatic blue.  Not to mention that blue is one of my favorite colors. The neckline of this dress is extremely flattering, and when you pair the extremely detailed hat, this look is complete for the whole derby!

Since the neckline of this dress is one of the essences of the dress, I thought it would be appropriate to have a simple up-do.
