One of my favorite weekends in the city is Kentucky Derby Weekend. It also happens to be the weekend of Cinco de Mayo (hence the ever-popular party title of Cinco de Derby). While it would be amazing to be at the event itself, the city hosts some great parties and it’s awesome to have an excuse to dress up in pretty dresses and drink bourbon on a sunny Saturday afternoon. Since I have been an urban dweller for the past 8 years and don’t see myself leaving anytime soon, the Kentucky Derby is the closest thing to a suburban garden party that I’ll have for some time. Here are a couple things I’m looking forward to.
Festive cocktails - I am obsessed with these horse stirrers I saw on Glitter Guide yesterday. A great way to make your drink extra special.
A show of hats - Last year I went with a hat at each party, but this year I'm thinking of going high-bun or big curls. The display is certainly awesome, though
Prep overload - As A knows, I love any excuse to be super preppy. Tomorrow is pretty much the big show.
