As I write this, it is Derby Eve/Oaks Day in the great city of Louisville. Yesterday was "Thurby" (cute, right? I didn't know that was a thing until this year) and tomorrow is the big day: Derby Day, the Run for the Roses, the Most Exciting Two Minutes in Sports.
I really, really love Derby. I've never been to the race itself (someday!) but the whole thing is right up my alley. The idea of a stadium full of people wearing hats and seersucker and bow ties and sundresses makes me plenty happy all by itself, but add in all the tradition, and the bourbon, and the singing/weeping your way through "My Old Kentucky Home" and GOSH I JUST LOVE IT. Tomorrow my family is having a Derby party, and I will do my darndest to remember to post photos!
Here is a collection of pictures that have been inspiring me sartorially and party-planning-wise this Derby season!
