Friday's Fancies #19: Derby Girl

This week's Friday's Fancies is all in honor of the Kentucky Derby. Now, I've never been to a derby, but now that Michael and I live in the South, it's a lot more feasible we'd go to one. The Virginia Derby at Colonial Downs in really close to Richmond, so if Michael will let me wear a big floppy hat, I am SO in.

Although I've never been, I feel that there are derby staples for every woman- mainly a big floppy hat & some pearls! I know pastels always scream "Southern Belle", and these D&G Mary Janes seem perfect for the occasion!

Am I the only one who wants to go to the derby solely to wear a gigantic hat??

Make sure to stop over to {long distance loving} to check out more derby outfits & have a lovely weekend!

  5. Girl, I am right there with you to go simply to wear the hat...however, I am sooo rooting for Liasion to in! Your look is absolutely divine. It's chic, simple and sassy all-in-one and that is so, what I am into right now. And I am loving the color choice very feminine, love it! I will say this hat's and all we would definitely be looking absolutely fabulous sipping cocktails and rooting for a win! Have a fabulous weekend. And come on Liaisan!
