Clothes Horse: What To Wear To A Derby Day Party

(Via Balea Raitz)

Today's inspiration comes from the 140th Kentucky Derby, which takes place this Saturday. Mr. Shop This and I were once racehorse owners and breeders, so we know a thing or two about the excitement of horse racing. I have planned many a horse party, and I love the Southern tradition of dressing up to go to the track and sip mint juleps.  I find the hats to be simply irresistible and so chic. I hope you are lucky enough to be heading to Churchill Downs or to a private party of your own. 

Here's Some Outfit Choices That Are Good Bets!
