Derby day

Preppy Thurston Horse Charm Wellesley Row

Happy Derby Day! We're wearing our Thurston Horse charm for good luck. We also like our York Horseshoe charm for the "Best Two Minutes in Sports"!

If you're like me, I'm kind of obsessed with what everyone is wearing at the Kentucky Derby. I came across the Fashion Through the Decades section on the official Kentucky Derby webpage, which I found to be an interesting read. How derby dressing has changed over the years! I also read their What to Wear section and saw that Vineyard Vines is the "official style of the Kentucky Derby". They even created a line of dresses for the derby. 

Dresses are great, but the real fun is the hat! I found Gold Coast Couture to have a nice assortment of Kentucky Derby Hats and Fascinators. I liked that they offered many in a solid color, so it could be easily matched with a Lilly Pulitzer dress, for example. Hoping to attend next year! I'll keep you posted.
