Born and raised in Louisville, Kentucky I have bluegrass in my blood and love me some Derby season! Most of you have heard about or maybe traveled to the Kentucky Derby, but for Louisvillians it is much more than just a Saturday in May. The energy in the city starting a month before the famous race is contagious and as is the fun to be had all month long leading up to the day at the Downs with the weekly events and people in town! Don’t get me wrong though, the Derby is the ultimate day. Everyone is ready for a fun day outdoors, rain or shine, men and women alike dressed to the nines. Whether you need a little fashion inspiration for your day at the track or for a like-minded outing, here are my top picks for dresses and hats. Think colorful and fun, yet elegant and chic dresses with a hat as your best accessory to complement your look. *If you are looking for a custom hat, check out my friends The Hat Girls!
