KENTUCKY DERBY + VINEYARD VINES

Our flight home from Derby was out of Lexington, so on Sunday Andrew and I drove over and spent two days in my old stomping grounds. I was able to show him all the places I loved when I was in school there and give him a little taste of Lexington! One of our major spots was at Keeneland, Lexington's local racetrack. I think it's one of the most beautiful tracks in the US, but I might be a little biased. Either way it was a perfect Lexington day and we were able to walk around the grounds and snap some pics along the way.

I originally wore this outfit the day of Oaks, but as bloggers do (at least me) I never remember to take outfit pictures the day I first wear them. Either way, this outfit worked out because it fit in so well (once again) with the racing theme. This shirt is probably one of my favorites right now, seeing as how I've worn it maybe six times since I got it. It's from Vineyard Vines' Derby Collection and it's called the Churchill Down Scene Top. I don't ever think I've seen such a beautiful shirt! The colors were perfect (#loveblue), the material was so rich and the details were well thought out. 

I decided to pair this top with my favorite J. Crew double crepe skirt (25% off with "SOGOOD") and had a little bit of trouble figuring out if I should wear the shirt over or under the skirt. I always wear this skirt with shirts tucked in, but for this Vineyard Vines top, I didn't want to cover up how pretty it was! So I did a little bit of both for these photos. These shoes were a new purchase for the Derby as well. At 30% off, you can't say no! I wanted a pair of nude sandals that were comfortable enough to walk in all day, and these were them.
