Kentucky Derby Outfit & Party Inspiration

Hope you had a great weekend! The weather here was rainy and overcast, but the sun did sneak out a little in the afternoon for us to grill some cheeseburgers on Sunday. Saturday I ran to the outlets and didn't buy anything...Well a hat for baby A that matches a romper I bought her last year. But nothing for myself even though Kate Spade had 40% off and Coach had 50% off everything! And at Coach if it was on sale you got an additional 40% off!!

I saw so many cute spring/summer dresses that made me think about the Kentucky Derby this weekend. I get so excited for the Kentucky Derby each year! I love wearing fun dresses, hats, and of course my mint juleps in the afternoon! Here are a few ideas if you are going to or hosting a party. What to wear! The more floral and bigger the hat the better! Think preppy overload!!!

My Mother in Law is going to a Kentucky Derby party on Saturday and made these fabulous boxes for people to vote for best dressed. How AMAZING are these? I can't believe she made these. 



I also found these great recipes on Pinterest for Mint Juleps that look delicious! I have to figure out which one I want to try!
