This week, we're talking about doing Derby like a local. Trust me when I say that the locals here in Louisville are still making plans for Derby, Oaks, and even Thurby. I've been in so many conversations this week that revolved around last-minute tickets, picking out ensembles, and generally how to put it all together.
If you find yourself with last-minute tickets to the 141st running of the Kentucky Derby or Kentucky Oaks, here's my shopping advice to you: DO NOT try to make an exhaustive search of all the stores in the area. Stick to a couple of your very favorites, places where you know the sizing, the sales associates, and the general look you're going for. I stopped by two of my own favorite stores, The Peppermint Palm and The Prickly Pear, this week and found that there are tons of great options available!
The ladies at the Peppermint Palm styled a couple of outfits that will stand out at the track. Elizabeth was even kind enough to model for us!
I love this green rose print. It's an unexpected interpretation of the classic "Run for the Roses" motif.
This hat is so striking with its perfectly balanced hues. It works well with a white lace dress!
The Prickly Pear Boutique has the perfect accessories for your trip to the track. The best part? Many of their accessories are on sale!
The hat selection at The Pear is fantastic!
I LOVE the mint julep ties!
Spend a few minutes at your favorite stores, and get back to enjoying Derby Week, y'all!
