I hope everything had a fantastic weekend! I had an eventful one since the Kentucky Derby was on Saturday and Mother’s Day was on Sunday. Did anyone else watch the race? I have really enjoyed watching all the horse races over the past few years. I have fond memories watching the them at our favorite oyster house in Rehoboth Beach, DE. We were there when American Pharaoh won the triple crown last year – such an amazing and once in a lifetime experience!
Since we didn’t make it out to the beach this year to watch the derby, I thought I would make a point to dress the part instead (while sipping on a mint julep of course). Derby day fashion is all about pretty dresses and wild hats but I also love the idea of creating a derby day look that is more understated yet classic. The only thing this outfit is missing is a hat!
Linen jackets are a springtime essential as they are lighter weight but provide enough warmth when chilly out. They are great for work but I also love to wear mine with jeans (an example of this seen in this post here). I own three Ralph Lauren linen jackets (crazy, I know. but I used to work there. It was my first job out of college at it was dangerous working there haha) which have still held their shape and timeless style. The jackets at Ralph Lauren are definitely an investment but are worth it as they will last forever!
Another great item to have in your closet for spring is a white skirt. Out of all the skirts I own, I definitely wear my white skirts the most. They are truly great to dress up and down with any color combination imaginable. A crisp white fit and flare skirt will never go out of style.
On another note – Did anyone see my post on Saturday about my favorite weekend sales? I post every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday but thought I would introduce a new Saturday post where I will talk about my favorite sales happening over the weekend, because who doesn’t love a good sale!? Just letting you know to watch out for it:)
Have a great start to the week friends!
