{Friday's Fancies} A Day at the Derby

This was such a fun week for Friday's Fancies!
I've always, always wanted to go to the Kentucky Derby so perusing through these inspiration images was perfect!


I decided my dream outfit for the Derby would be a bit more subdued. 
 The preppy color combo of navy + yellow paired with stripes & dots and feminine little details



I'm dying to know, have any of you been to the Derby?
What did you wear?

Alright lovies, hope it's a wonderful weekend
I'm off to Dallas for a bachelorette weekend!

I've been to the Derby once! Let's just say my hat wasn't nearly as chic and elaborate as those! They're gorgeous! Loving your own pick. I'd definitely love to wear what you've chosen, especially those sunglasses! Have a lovely weekend! x

I live in Louisville, but have only been to the Derby once - in the infield. It is not nearly as glamorous. We did go to the track with friends yesterday though & saw some pretty cute outfits :)

I have never been to the Derby but I am dying to go. I love the look you selected! If I go to the Derby I want to wear a black and white polka dot dress with a huge white hat. Have a great weekend!
