I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned this before or not, but I lived in Louisville, KY for almost two years. After we graduated college, Dylan and I first moved out to Portland, OR and then back to the midwest for awhile. When we were living in Louisville, KY we learned all things Derby, and I was obsessed with the big hats and dresses!

Kentucky Derby Style has evolved over the years, but the main piece that remains is a hat. Some women go all out for their hats, while others keep things simple. I love the fascinators because they are chic & fun (totally Kate Middleton approved!). The two that I have are both under $20 and I’ve linked them below!

Even though I’m now living in Austin, TX  and won’t be attending the Kentucky Derby this year, I thought it would be fun to style something that I would wear if I was going. This look would also be perfect for a derby party. This dress can obviously be worn to any outing, since it’s amazing and super affordable!

Are you celebrating the Kentucky Derby this year? What are your plans? And better yet, what are you wearing? I hope you have an awesome weekend!

    Wow, beautiful! It wouldn’t even look out of place outside of the Derby, either… can’t really say that about a lot of outfits we wear for that 🙂
