Happy Derby weekend, everyone! Now that I am a Louisville resident, I feel it's only right and natural to celebrate the town's beloved holiday. I won't be attending the Derby this year and will instead be watching the race from the best seat in the house (my couch) with some good friends. If I were to go this year, and had tons of dough to spend on tickets that weren't the infield, clothes and betting, I would likely be wearing something like this. The Derby is a classy event and if you're going to dress up, you'd better be wearing a hat (people take it so seriously!). I'm not a hat lady, so it's likely I'd just bring one along to have, to avoid the stares of disapproval!
Nothing screams Derby like D&G, right? Paired with a turquoise MiuMiu shoulder bag, Stanwells coral wedges, a fancy Swarovski cocktail ring, Calypso St. Barth danglies and a bright pop of Nars nail polish in Amchoor by Thakoon, you've got a solid look that stands out, yet blends you right in with the other rich folks and celebrities floating around Churchill Downs.
What do you have planned this weekend? I keep forgetting tomorrow is Cinco de Mayo. We have plans to grill with our special Chicago visitors tomorrow, and I'm thinking that drinking mojitos will celebrate both holidays fairly. Let's face it, mint juleps need carbonated water. Am I right? Yeah. I totally am.
