Good morning! This weekend we celebrated the Kentucky Derby and Gold Cup by attending DC's Drink the District: Derby Edition. It was so much fun! There were mint juleps, big hats, and bow ties everywhere. I love any excuse to get dressed up so I was pretty excited to channel my inner derby girl. While searching online for inspiration for an outfit, I read that wearing black was a no. If you did wear black, it had to be at a minimum. Well, I love black. So mission accepted! I wanted to wear something that was different and not your average sundress. Plus, I really didn't want to buy anything LOL. So this is what I came up with :)
I really loved wearing this outfit. I felt chic, classic, and a whole lot of fancy! ;) Maybe we should wear big hats more often? LOL
Happy Cinco de Mayo!
