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!
Can you blame me though? What’s better than lemonade on a hot, sunny summer day?! Too bad here in Austin we have only been having cloudy, rainy, muggy summer days. We shot these looks last week and it was the first sunny day we have had in over a week. I’m ready for a real summer! Luckily, I’ll be traveling to Mexico in August, so I’ll get my perfect summer days there!! My friends and I booked a big trip to Cancun and I seriously can’t wait. Now, I’m currently looking for a cheap trip to take for 4th of July weekend. One of my favorite 4th of Julys was when I went with my bestie and our boys to Galveston. It was so chill and fun! We made patriotic sangria, played drinking games from our college days, and went to Pleasure Pier. We didn’t even go to the beach and we still had such an amazing time (not that Galveston beaches have much going for them).
Now that my Mexico trip is booked and official, I’ll be shopping for awesome beach wear, so be sure to check out my shop page! I’ll be updating it with my favorite vacation pieces that I’m coveting or may have already snagged 😉
