Kentucky Derby, Charlotte Style

 
Let’s talk about the Kentucky Derby. The hats, dresses, shoes and the status. It all seems like so much fun. So let’s take a look at what the Kentucky Derby fashion scene is all about

Personally my favorite is Krysten Ritter’s floral and lace trimmed dress. Her hat is just big enough and nice compliment to the dress itself and the darker navy shoes.

So after looking at all these beautiful hats and dresses, I need help deciding what to wear to Queens Cup her in Charlotte. Our lovely version of the Kentucky Derby. My work purchased a tent, will provide food and beverages and of course always a good time. So since I already have a tulle skirt and try to wear it every chance I get here a few options I was thinking about for Queens Cup.

I am fan of blushes and neutrals, especially for the Spring so that top just speaks to me. Those earrings are a bit out of my normal routine. I am a studs kind of girl but LOVE a good statement necklace. However with the floral going on I know it best to avoid a necklace with this ensemble. The next look is quite similar, let’s be honest almost identical. What can I say? I know what I like.

So what are your thoughts? Probably that I am ridiculous and basically just need to pick a shirt and get over myself? Well I might, but I like opinions too.

Jenna Lyons hit the nail on head when she declared leopard as a neutral, I agree completely. 


My idea for the outfit came from this post by the lovely Hallie. She went with different color palletes but for my first time out I decided to stick with a common color. I will get her guts one day! 

I searched high and low for these leopard flats and when I found them at Marshalls, of all places, I was elated. I snatched them up and they have been my absolute favorite flats to pair when I need a quick pick.

The ring was a college graduation gift from my parents, it matches my necklace they got me for my high school graduation. I love it because it is a great addition to my ever growing desire to mix gold and silver.
