Oaks Day











Dress: Vineyard Vines c/o, Shoes: Lilly Pulitzer (similar) Clutch: Vineyard Vines c/o Scarf: Vineyard Vines c/o Fascinator: Christine A. Moore Bracelets: Kiel James Patrick, Pink Pineapple c/o, and Vineyard Vines c/o

Kiel: Blazer: Vineyard Vines c/o Shirt: Vineyard Vines c/o Pants: Vineyard Vines c/o Shoes: Cole Haan (similar) Bow-Tie: Vineyard Vines c/o Belt: Vineyard Vines c/o Pocket Square: Vineyard Vines c/o Hat: Christine A. Moore

Special thanks to Vineyard Vines  and their wonderful team for hosting an amazing trip to Kentucky! Kiel and I had the best time in Louisville. The weather was positively perfect! Some of the highlights of our trip included dining at Rye, Garage Bar, and The Silver Dollar (I've included a link to each place as the food and atmosphere were equally incredible and highly recommended). Shopping at Rodes where Kiel and I both purchased hats. It was really tough to choose one hat for each day! Finally Oaks Day and the 140th Kentucky Derby at Churchhill Downs: Mint Juleps, Oak Lilies, a crowd dressed to the nines, complete mayhem at the Vineyard Vines tent (In a good way! The infield crowds went crazy for the pink foam whale hats), and most importantly horse racing. For those of you wondering I bet on Vicar's in Trouble. More pictures to come tomorrow!
