This post combines two of my favorite things about blogging: getting to work with brands I admire and getting to collaborate with friends I adore. When Vineyard Vines asked if Carly, Hallie, Jess, and I would be up for styling a few looks from their Kentucky Derby collection, I couldn’t have been more excited. Here are a few snaps from our afternoon at the Waldorf…

Wearing this seersucker dress and these metallic flats!

Did anyone else live for silly straws as a kid?!

Loved this top on Carly.

Wouldn’t be a derby shoot without mint juleps! (Psst, order your mint julep cups while they’re still in stock!)

Such a cute shot of Jess on Park Avenue outside the hotel!

Have I mentioned I love a dress with pockets?! 

It was such a fun afternoon and a lovely reminder of why I love what I do. Big thanks to Vineyard Vines for the pretty dress, the Waldorf Astoria for the perfect setting, and Rebecca for the gorgeous photos! Be sure to shop the full Kentucky Derby collection here and check out full looks on Bows & Sequins, Corals & Cognacs, and The College Prepster. And mark your calendar — the Kentucky Derby is Saturday, May 3!

  1. Would love to see you do a blog on where to watch the derby in the city! It always falls on my birthday so I want to find somewhere fun but having trouble just googling!

  2. Absolutely perfect. This looks so fun. When I lived in Louisville, the most exciting part was helping my mom with her derby outfit each year. She always made her own hat and would let me consult the design. I need to dig up photos!
