Derby Day

Hey, guys!  Welcome back to Talk Fabulous!

The Kentucky Derby was this past Saturday.  I love going to our local horse racing track to watch the race.  While the guys are worrying about which horses to place their bets on, the girls are admiring all the lovely outfits and hats.  I saw a quote on Pinterest the other day that said, “if you’re not looking to stand out at the Derby, you’re doing it wrong.”  Apparently, some ladies took that advice to heart. There were some fancy, fancy hats for sure!  If people were dressed to the nines here, I can’t imagine what it must be like in Kentucky.  Someday I’m going to find out, but this year I’ll settle for my hometown track.  Also, for the first time this year, I decided to wear a hat.  I decorated my straw sunhat for the occasion with some pink ribbon and flowers I found at the Dollar Tree.  My hat looked like child’s play compared to some of the other hats I saw, but no matter.  Now that I had the hat, I needed an outfit.  I wasn’t feeling a dress, partly because I wasn’t ready to quite go all out.  Maybe next year, though.  As usual, I took to Pinterest to find some inspiration.  I found this number tucked away in the depths of my Spring/Summer outfit board.  I loved the bright colors and even though I didn’t have the exact pieces to recreate the look, it gave me an idea.  I paired a super colorful flowy top with a white tank, dark blue jeggings, and pink heels.  I also threw on a white sweater for warmth. I ended up really loving this look!  It was so fun dressing up and I was excited that my hat turned out so well!  All and all it was a fabulous afternoon at the track!
