Kentucky Derby Party outfit

Kentucky Derby Party outfit

Kentucky Derby Party outfit

mixed rings and vintage purse

So my Derby Day outfit wasn't exactly '60s-inspired, but somewhat old-fashioned nonetheless. Growing up, I used to hate tucked-in button-downs, but lately, that seems to have changed. But enough about me, let's talk about all of the fun outfits at KDP5! Everyone went all out, which was cause for much deliberation amongst the judges. Oh and I can safely say I walked away with a serious case of hat envy! Check out the event photos on Guest of a Guest and thank you so much to the Perry Center for inviting me to be a part of a great event for a great cause!

I have major hat envy. I love the yellow skirt. It's definitely classy and fun outfit for a derby.

Bright yellow is quickly becoming a favorite of mine! Too bad you didn't have a quirky huge hat too!
