Talk Derby to Me

It's Derby season ya'll!

 I seriously can't believe I've lived in this city for 13 years and I've never been to any kind of Derby event. I know, I'm a slacker. Luckily this year I'm definitely making up for it and I can't wait for the festivities to begin. All week the city has been buzzing! Everyone rushing around making sure they have the perfect dress, hat, shoes...Derby is a big deal and its all come down to this.

My original plan was to actually attend the 141 run for the roses, but for some reason I thought I was going to be able to wait until a week before Derby to get my ticket. Sike. Luckily I now have the opportunity to attend Oaks, so all is not lost. In fact, I'm typing this in the middle of my personal glam preparation. This blogging thing is so fancy ya'll.

As for my dress, it was literally the fastest shopping experience of my life. When I walked into Macy's, it was the first dress I saw and the first dress I tried on. I honestly had a "Say Yes to the Dress" moment in the fitting room because I just knew it was the one. AND oh my gosh I almost forgot the best part of this dress. It has pockets ya'll. I didn't even realize it until the middle of my photo shoot and I had a little dance party in the street.

I did decide to opt for a fascinator instead of a hat because my head sweats and I did not want those problems at the racetrack. 
Anyways it's time I get back to curling my hair. If you're in the bluegrass state right now I hope you enjoy all that Derby has to offer and if you're not have a beautiful weekend.
