Outfit: Derby Day...that wasn't

Where I live had a Derby Day event. This was basically a downtown type thing where a few streets are blocked off and basically a street party happens. It sounded great on paper. This was the first year for it so we had no idea what to expect. There's an annual street fair {the same spot} in the fall that attracts thousands and it's always a good time.

So of course I start planning my outfit. I live in The South after all so I thought I'd go ahead with the hat and all. I love hats. I already had a wide brimmed sun hat so I thought I'd just dress it up a little with flowers. Well as the day neared, I had this odd feeling that this event wasn't going to be as big of deal as it sounded. We got dressed anyway. Luckily I only had Hubby put on some plaid shorts and not something more crazy. It was going to be around 90 degrees that day so I wanted to be comfy. I put on a simple dress. Didn't go overboard with shoes because we'd be walking around and still wanted a somewhat casual vibe since it was a street fair. It was a dud to say the least. We did a drive-by to feel out the situation. There wasn't hardly anyone there! WTH? Where were all the people, Mint Juleps and 5 big screen TV's they advertised? We drove home, lol. Luckily it's only a few miles from our house. We laughed, changed clothes and went to eat Mexican since it was Cinco de Mayo. Thought I'd share what I wore anyway.

Hat: old, Flower: Kohl's, Dress: Target, Shoes: Steve Madden {last season}, Necklace: My Name Necklace, Sunglasses: Kenneth Cole


  1. Well that stinks but at least you got to wear your dress and hat for a little while!! OK, thanks so much for telling us what bag Pippa is carrying. Just about every other photo I found of here she's carrying the Pippa in multiple colors. :-)

    1. You're welcome! I have Pippa in Toffee. It was hard to get and I was on a waiting list. They come out with new colors all the time. It's a great bag!

      As always, thanks for your comment! xo
