This Keeneland season I’m encouraging everyone to step outside of the box once and for all, and mix that southern style with a bit of New York city. Why? Because why not spice things up, and look chic and cool while doing it? Unless the rain decides to cooperate, my look for Opening Weekend is far from my normal Keeneland go-to. I’ll even be wearing knee high socks. Eeeeek! I can’t wait to share. I put this look together with the current forecast in mind. A simple sweater dress and an over the knee boot is the perfect combo for a cool fall day. Below you can shop all of the items or similar items from the look I’ve styled. I hope everyone has a FABULOUS Keeneland Opening Weekend!
A Wonderful Weekend With ABR, Blogger Pals, Bloodies & Ponies
Thanks to #AmericasBestRacing, I had an amazing Labor Day weekend at Saratoga Race Track. Joined by a handful of New York City’s top bloggers, I took to the track in true blogger fashion (i.e. dress, heels, cocktails, and a camera).
We started our adventure bright and early with a beautiful brunch at Fasig-Tipton. Star female Jockey, Taylor Rice was the guest of honor, and boy was she a cool chick. After rounding up the crew from a fantastic meal, we met at the track to place a few bets, meet some horses and enjoy the day.
Again, all in thanks to America’s Best Racing for treating us to such an amazing time. Us bloggers sure did have a beautiful weekend. For those of you who aren’t aware, ABR is a multi-media new fan development and awareness-building platform, initiated by The Jockey Club. You can find out so much more about the awesome ABR team HERE.

Today we’re kicking off day #2 of Derby Days on LWW and we’re talking about the single, most important piece to the Derby wardrobe puzzle. You know what I’m talking about… THE HAT! Whether you’re a fascinator girl or a traditional hat girl, the rule for “how to wear” stays the same: GO BIG OR GOR HOME.
If you’re a little late in the game and still need the perfect hat for your dress, do NOT worry. Today I want to take a chance to encourage all of my KY folks to shop local. I’ve found 3 amazing Kentucky designers that you should definitely try before hitting the department stores. Information for each designer is listed below with their photographs.
Kenzie Kapp of Louisville, KY launched Kenzie Kapp, LLC. in 2008 and has been turning heads ever since. No really, her stuff is GORGEOUS! A customized-hat designed by Kenzie will be sure to enhance any look for a special occasion, like the Derby.
I met the fabulous faces behind Fashion at the Races this time last year, and they haven’t stopped amazing me since with their eye for style. Their one-stop-site has it all when it comes to the world of racing and Derby fashion. This year you can shop several, fabulous designs from a number of talented milliners (Amuse being one of them).
Founded in 2003 by designer Britni Lynn Knable, hEADcANDi specializes in hand crafted fashion forward hats, fascinators, and accessories for the races. I found Britni through a fashion blog I read daily (Atlantic Pacific). Her designs are simply stunning, affordable, and one-of-a-kind. I highly recommend Britni for your Derby and wedding accessories.
