Derby Time with Vineyard Vines

Vineyard Vines invited a few of my blogger friends and me to a little Derby party. (You can never start too early with these things.)
I’m all for a lunch break with my friends in a fun location with cute clothes. Check, check…. andddd check.
Vineyard Vines is the official style of the Kentucky Derby and we had so much fun planning our outfits for the day. 
I’m wearing:
I’m obsessed with the painting and think it’s quite charming. The detailing at the shoulder is perfect for the Derby– little horse bits! (Oh, and it comes in a dress version too.)
Traditional Mint Juleps to kick off the lunch. 
All the girls! We met for lunch in the Waldorf Astoria. It was really such a perfect break for all of us; we left our work stress at the door and had a great time! Be sure to check out everyone’s blogs because they’ll be sharing their outfit details there! (Um, and how amazing are Hallie and Jess’ hats?!)
Essie “Bikini So Teeny” (a recent favorite) matches the shirt perfectly! 
Ladies who lunch? … More like bloggers who Instagram
Don’t need a full Derby outfit? The baseball hats are TOO CUTE.
Has anyone ever gone to the Kentucky Derby? Now I’m kind of dying to go!!!

It's Just Me

The clothes are cute enough, but y'all aren't dressed up enough for the Derby. The lady in the jean jacket would actually be turned away from the better events, as denim is a huge Derby no-no.


I have been OBSESSING over that top every since I spied it on instagram in (maybe one of Jess's?) shots a few weeks ago. Love, love, LOVE!


I've always wanted to go to the Derby (I rode/showed horses for YEARS and worked with quite a few retired Thoroughbreds) and this collection is just too adorable. I'm loving everything =)

This post could not have come at a better time! I'm going to the Derby this year and have been spending all of my free time looking for the perfect outfit! Love the looks!


We love the Vineyard Vines hat and everything else. American Made Dorm is headquartered right here in Louisville, so we know and LOVE Derby!
