The Kentucky Derby is less than two weeks away! Here In Louisville, the Derby madness begins almost a month before Derby. This my first Derby as a local, it's crazy to think that Derby is a month-long celebration even though the actual race only lasts around two minutes. But, I wouldn't have it any other way!

If you're like me and have yet to lock down your derby attire... I'll be featuring three roundups this week showcasing a few of my favorite derby options. Luckily, Louisville has amazing local options for derby attire. My favorite shops are cloudhoppers and blink boutique. 

The Kentucky Derby is interesting as your dress code is dictated by where you are sitting. Dresses that I pick for the infield will be drastically different than the ones I pick for a box or millionaires row. The options listed above would be perfect if you are sitting in the grandstand or an outdoor box. If you are attending this year, feel free to contact me with any questions about what you should wear in relation to where you are sitting.

Are you going to be celebrating the Derby this year? I'd love to know what you plan on wearing!
