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 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 : )
