Kentucky Derby

I have always wanted to have a Kentucky Derby themed party, but since this year the Kentucky Derby falls on Cinco de Mayo… the fiestas override any Derby parties! That didn’t mean I still didn’t want to get dressed up for it though.  If I were going to the Kentucky Derby and wearing something out of my closet… this is what it would be! A structured sheath two tone dress, peep toe heels and my DIY Kentucky Derby hat made from my floppy hat seen here and here.  What do you think? What would you wear to the Kentucky Derby?

Perhaps you have seen me wearing this striped turtleneck too much since I started my blog (this is the third time, you can see the other outfits here and here), but I love turtlenecks and I love stripes so this piece is just one of those staples in my closet that I love to layer under and over clothing as well as with lots of jewelry. This outfit was inspired by a feature in Lucky Magazine (pages 36-38) where singer-song writer Alison Sudol remixed her striped shirt and when I saw it layered underneath a white dress with a necktie, I knew I wanted to try the look! So here is a take on black and white with layering, stripes and open-toed heels!
