Talk Derby To Me

What is the quintessential preppy event of the year? The Kentucky Derby of course. Classy guys wearing ties and classy girls wearing pearls celebrate this momentous occasion by dressing to the nine's. I drool over the pictures of Derby goers on Instagram, Pinterest and Tumblr. I've never been to the Kentucky Derby or Kentucky for that matter, but that didn't stop me from channeling my inner prepster and creating a derby look!

The Kentucky Derby is all about going all out. And what screams all out than a hot pink dress and floral heels? This is such a classy and fun outfit! I would love to take this baby out for a spin on the green sipping a mint julep. Oh one of these days ;) 

Also I'm in looove with these heels! They A) match the dress perfectly and B) are such a pretty heel! I can't wait to wear them with other dresses or a pair of white jeans and a cute top! 

Thank you to Shabby Apple for sending me this beauty to wear, I absolutely love it! 

What are you/would you wear to the Kentucky Derby? Are you going or going to be watching? Leave me a comment below!

  1. We live right across the river from Louisville, in southern Indiana but we don't do anything for Derby. We turn on the race at 5 or 6pm then turn it right off after the two minute race is over. The only thing special my parents do is drink mint juleps.
