First Item: HATS!!
I love the Marley Lilly monogrammed hats! I bought the hat with the pink brim and can't wait to wear it to the beach and on the boat this summer.

Second Item: We need a dress!!
Remember go big or go home! So you need to make sure that your dress is loud, colorful and fun!! Don't forget the pearls!! You can't go wrong with Lilly Pulitzer or Vineyard Vines. Personally, I believe the Vineyard Vines Churchill Downs Scene Dress will win you best in show!! Vineyard Vines has a ton of Kentucky Derby items, and even more options for guys!
