Derby Style!

Some do the Kentucky Derby, others do the Preakness, but around here we do the Belmont Stakes. So this Saturday D and I are heading to Belmont to see the horses, maybe place a few bets, but more importantly get dressed up (obviously my favorite part). We've gone the past two years and it's suddenly become a tradition that we have to go every year. It's just such a fun day to get dressed up, eat, drink, and.....the hats....oh the hats! 
Here are some inspiration photos I found on Pinterest for possible outfits:
I love the color of this dress and the peonies on the hat!
 Gotta sneak in a little Man Men inspiration here.
Black and white style.  
 I like this look because it has a vintage feel to it.

They make a Kentucky Derby Barbie! How funny is that?
Totally loving her outfit though....do they make this in my size?
Derby style ala Gossip Girl
Now that I think of it, doesn't Chuck Bass dress like he's going to the derby everyday?
Little derby goer. So cute!
With all the derby fashion, I'm thinking a derby themed party would be so much fun to have!
Get all your guests to dress up (obviously!) and serve mint juleps...
...and mint julep cupcakes!!!
 And how crazy is this donut hat??
She certainly makes it look fab though!
 And finally here is a picture of me and D from Belmont last year : )

Does anyone else love the "derby style" as much as I do?
Stay tuned for photos from this weekend and what we ended up wearing : )
