Kentucky Oaks/Derby Day fashion

Happy Derby Day!  Who are you rooting for?  There was a lot of talk about Bodemeister yesterday, we'll see if he pulls out a win!  We attended the Kentucky Oaks yesterday, where a female jockey, Rosie Napravnik, was the first female jockey to ever win that race!  Her horse is Believe You Can, a perfect name for their victorious race, isn't it?  Ah, the fashion during Derby weekend at Churchill Downs is really something that cannot be explained, it must be experienced!  One dress more colorful than the next, one hat more fabulous than the other.  It is really a sight to see!  We had the time of our lives! Here is a picture of me and my best friend from college!
On me:  Dress:  Lilly Pulitzer, similar here
Wedges: Audrey Brook, DSW- buy here
Handbag:  Coach, old. similar  here
Hat:  Vendor at Keeneland Racetrack in Lexington, KY
On Amy:  Dress: Rauol, Saks.  No navy buy buy white here
Shoes:  Joan & David Olina pump, Nordstrom, buy here
Hat: Dillards, similar here
We had such an amazing day!  I'll leave you with a few other pictures of our trip.  I saw so many Lilly Pulitzer dresses, and lots of other gorgeous spring dresses too.  The hats were all to die for!  If you ever have the chance to visit Churchill Downs for the Oaks or Derby, take it!  It definitely should be on everyone's bucket list!
A mint julip is a must at Kentucky Oaks/Derby!
