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!

    Double take… is that Michael Gladis (from Mad Men)? If not that is incredibly uncanny…
