Fashion Friday :: Derby Day

Happy Friday, friends! Geez, I thought this week was never going to end but alas, the weekend is here and I couldn't be happier. Ever since my first horse show as a young girl, it's been a dream to attend the Kentucky Derby. Churchill Downs is such a magical place. I had the pleasure of attending the Fall Meet several years ago and it just intensified my desire to attend The Derby. The Husband promised me we'd go this year for our anniversary (which is Sunday) but with a family graduation this weekend, it just wasn't meant to be this year. Oh well, maybe next year! :(

I'm trying not to be bitter that I'm missing The Derby this year. Instead of being bitter, I thought I'd put together a snazzy outfit for the occasion. How adorable is this dress from ModCloth? And I'm loving this hat, which is just as much a part of the outfit as the dress itself. I added a Kate Spade waist belt for a pop of color, fun pearls, ray-bans and classic t-straps. If at the Derby, I'd also have a pair of white gloves in my clutch!

So what do you think? Would you wear this outfit?
Do you love The Derby like me?

Here's wishing you a lovely weekend! With The Derby, Cinco de Mayo, Our Anniversary (also on Cinco de Mayo) and a college graduation, it will be a weekend of celebrations for sure!

  1. That dress looks so fun! I, too, have always dreamed of going to the Derby... ever since my 4th grade paper on the state of Kentucky.

    Have a great weekend!
