Getting Lucky In Kentucky - The Great Finish Sweepstakes

April 29, 2014

Thank you to Cottonelle for sponsoring this post and keeping my bum clean!

As a young child I can remember going to a horse race with my grandparents and loving every second of it! There are a few instances I can recall where my grandpa would let my brother and I choose his horse to bet on which in turn made me a big fan of horse racing even at a young age. With the Kentucky Derby just days away I am getting so excited to see what outfits people will be wearing. When I think of the Kentucky Derby I think of Mint Juleps, pretty dresses, oversized sunglasses, and of course all the outrageous hats. Although I will not be at the race this year, I put together a few outfits that I could see myself wearing if ever the day comes that I get to experience the Kentucky Derby first hand.
