Who all watched the Kentucky Derby this past weekend? This was my first time watching it and attending a derby party… and I had a blast! I love a good bet so of course, I had to take part in a little betting and ended up winning $40! I have already spent half of it…on pizza.
This party was a little short notice so I had to rush to find a cute hat and plan all of the outfit details. Surprisingly, the hubby had his outfit all picked out and I swear he was more excited to dress up then I was!
As most of you probably know derby fashion is all about the bright colors and the hats. So usually when you are planning your outfit you either choose the dress first or the hat. I chose the hat first. I knew I wanted a really unique and different hat because to me the derby is all about going big. The hats are always the center of attention so I wanted my outfit to be simple and my hat to be the main eye catcher. I also knew I didn’t want to spend too much on a hat either.
I only had about a week to order a spectacular hat so I went to the one place I knew would be speedy and inexpensive and that is of course Amazon. The selection of hats that Amazon has is pretty surprising and made it really hard for me to choose. I ended up picking this fun headband hat because the flowers really stood out to me plus I figured the champagne color would be easy to match.
Believe it or not, I had such a hard time finding a dress to match the hat. Literally, I went to a number of different stores and couldn’t find anything…okay maybe most of the stuff would have worked but I was being really picky. So my last stop was Macy’s. I tried on a few different dresses and this one was the very last option I had and luckily, it was perfect. I love the fit of this dress and the material is really stretchy. It would be perfect for a summer wedding so I definitely will be wearing it again.
