Derby Days

Anyone else as obsessed as I am with the Kentucky Derby? I love it all. Everything from the classic dresses and over-the-top show of hats to the mint-flavored libations and the excitement of placing your bet on a winner whether his or her name is “I’ll Have Another” or “Daddy Noes Best”. If you are equally as infatuated, check out my Kentucky Derby pinterest board.

The Kentucky Derby Hats of 2009

There is nothing I love more than a big floppy hat and a mint julep. I had my money on General Quarters for this Kentucky Derby because I watched the preshow and heard the owner’s story. That’s the last time I rely on my emotions for a bet. But, here are some of my favorite hats from this weekend. I especially love the really floppy one at the bottom.
