Friday's Fancies: Decked Out For the Derby

Happy Friday, friends! I was thrilled to have the option of creating an outfit centered around the Kentucky Derby this week. I went to the Derby three years ago and had a BLAST. No, I did not keep it classy and wear a fancy dress and over-the-top hat. Yes, I did frollick around on the infield in my cowboy boots while drinking one too many mint juleps.  Since I've never experienced the derby the classy way, I figured Friday's Fancies would be the perfect opportunity to do so.  So, here's what I would wear if I chose to opt out of the infield madness.


Dress / Necklace / Hat / Bracelet / Clutch / Shoes


I saw this dress in Anthropologie yesterday. Swoon city. Derby perfect. If I were going this year, this baby would be mine. A big hat is a necessity for Derby goers. I would actually choose a crazier hat than this, but my online options were limited. 


For those of you going to the Derby this year, I envy you. Have a few mint juleps for me, will ya?

I've gotten to dress up for a Derby style party, but never for the real event! I must say boots and mint juleps sound like more fun, though!

Annie said...

My cousin is attending the Derby this year and this outfit would make her look fabulous! I wonder if there’s a yellow color of this dress at Anthropologie; since my cousin loves yellow!
