Derby Time with Vineyard Vines

Vineyard Vines invited a few of my blogger friends and me to a little Derby party. (You can never start too early with these things.)

I'm all for a lunch break with my friends in a fun location with cute clothes. Check, check.... andddd check.

Vineyard Vines is the official style of the Kentucky Derby and we had so much fun planning our outfits for the day. 


I'm wearing:



I'm obsessed with the painting and think it's quite charming. The detailing at the shoulder is perfect for the Derby– little horse bits! (Oh, and it comes in a dress version too.)


Traditional Mint Juleps to kick off the lunch. 


All the girls! We met for lunch in the Waldorf Astoria. It was really such a perfect break for all of us; we left our work stress at the door and had a great time! Be sure to check out everyone's blogs because they'll be sharing their outfit details there! (Um, and how amazing are Hallie and Jess' hats?!)



Essie "Bikini So Teeny" (a recent favorite) matches the shirt perfectly! 


Ladies who lunch? ... More like bloggers who Instagram

Don't need a full Derby outfit? The baseball hats are TOO CUTE.



Has anyone ever gone to the Kentucky Derby? Now I'm kind of dying to go!!!

  2. The clothes are cute enough, but y'all aren't dressed up enough for the Derby. The lady in the jean jacket would actually be turned away from the better events, as denim is a huge Derby no-no.
