And just like that the Kentucky Derby is right around the corner! While I won’t be hosting a big party like I did a few years ago, we have invited a few families over to enjoy the festivities and I am thrilled that the race is happening this year as scheduled! The Kentucky Derby is on Saturday May 1st so you still have time to plan a little get together- and in my opinion it’s just such a fun reason to gather friends! And wear a big ol’ hat of course. If you are looking for something fun to wear, I have rounded up lots of fun Kentucky Derby dresses and hats in this year’s year’s Kentucky Derby Style Guide down below.

WHAT TO WEAR TO A KENTUCKY DERBY PARTY
Picking out a dress and hat is definitely the fun part of hosting a Derby party and I say after the year we have had we deserve to go all out. This year I will be wearing this long black and white dress and a large-and-in-charge black hat. The event is later in the day so even more of a reason to get decked out!
