Still wondering how much I love Derby Day style?

In case you missed my post a few weeks ago about how to celebrate the Kentucky Derby, here is some more outfit inspiration for y’all! Us Southern girls get excited for Derby Day WAY in advance, and picking the perfect outfit is huge. One of the reasons being that everyone starts buying about a month in advance from the big day, so the good hats start selling out fast! This hat I’m wearing in this post, for example, sold out this morning before I had a chance to post (luckily, there are some similar ones out there). If you’re going to a Derby Party, or lucky enough to actually be going to the Kentucky Derby, it’s time to plan your outfit!

I’m so excited to partner with Draper James again to show you some more Derby Day Style! Last year, I chose a floral dress and small fascinator for my outfit inspiration post, so I decided to do something a little different this year! I love graphic tees, they’re my go-to for days when I want to be comfy but cute, so I decided to rock this “Hold Your Horses” tee. See more of her collection below!

If you’re still looking for a hat, here are a few of my favorites! Remember, they’re selling like hot cakes so be sure to snag it once you find the right one!

If y’all remember, this is not my first time working with Jon Hart Design Luggage on a partnership. A while back, I wrote this blog post about their fabulous rolling carry-on bag and duffel bag. My rolling carry-on has now traveled with me to LA, Las Vegas, and Cancun on flights, and it has been a dream. The reason I said “heck yes!” when they asked to work with me again is because their luggage is truly high-quality, and that is so important when choosing what you’ll be using to travel with for the next some-odd years of your life.

Let’s be real, once you buy luggage you use it FOREVER, if it lasts. No one goes luggage shopping every time they go on a trip. You use it all the time, constantly, until the quality has run its course and you’re pretty much forced to buy a new set, unless you want it falling apart on you.

That’s why it’s so important to invest in pieces that will last you a long time. Not only do you have peace of mind while you’re traveling, but you’ll save money in the long run by not having to replace your old, crappy suitcases. I am here to tell you that Jon Hart is what I recommend you choose. Along with their amazing quality, they also have a million options to choose from; from rolling luggage, to carry-ons, overnight bags, makeup bags, garment bags, computer cases, backpacks, and shoe bags. I literally can’t think of anything I could need that they don’t sell, and you can get everything monogrammed (hello!) and all in matching colors (and choose from nearly 20 options).

The bright color options really come in handy when you check your bags, too. If someone tries to take it, you’ll be able to spot them right away (I’m really paranoid about that, lol). Plus, it’s fun to have all your luggage and toiletry bags match. It reminds me of the movie “New in Town.” Does anyone know the scene I’m talking about?
