Derby day + Rifle Paper Co. Nails

The Kentucky Derby was another success this year! I got down and derby with friends in a feathery fascinator as we sipped mint juleps all afternoon. 🙂

I opted for a full skirt in pinks and navy blue and a yellow dotted pink crop top to match, both from ASOS. With my nude pointed toes I was ready to cheer Always Dreaming to victory! I love the names of the horses, they’re always so odd and wonderful. 🙂

I was lucky to find this top totally separate of the skirt, it happened to be the perfect shade of pink to add with my scuba material voluminous skirt, and the crop top was a cute peek of skin without being too flashy.


I had a blast this weekend at the Godfrey Hotel’s rooftop derby party with friends, and was obsessed with this perfect gray/purple fascinator. I may need to start re-thinking the Belmont Stakes… 🙂

Get the look!

Also, the fun bonus was that Dani’s Rifle Print Paper Co. dress in the periwinkle print matched my latest manicure! It’s such a gorgeous print, and if you enjoy sewing, cocktails, and straight up fashion, head over to her blog Sewing and Cocktails.


I had my nails done my the insanely talented nail artist, Nicole Rios, co-owner of Jewels a Nail Box in the Sola Salon space right off the Paulina Brown Line stop on the el–for those of you living in Chicago. For those of you who are not, but still like to swoon over some good nail art, head to her insta!

And here’s the whole gang, looking mighty fine and fabulous! ! It was a gorgeous day in the sun, we couldn’t have asked for a better Saturday in the city.


Until we derby again!
