Miranda Lambert and friends at the 139th Kentucky Derby in 2013
When it comes to sports, most people get excited about the Super Bowl (I would if the Dallas Cowboys ever had a winning season) but for me, I get giddy over the Kentucky Derby! I’m not sure when my obsession started, but I can tell you that one of my dogs is named after hall of fame jockey Calvin Borel (my mom rescued the pup off the side of the road four years ago during the Derby) and this year it’s all about California Chrome and Candy Boy!
If you love the Derby as much as I do and you’re on the hunt for the perfect (140th annual) Kentucky Derby dress for your day at Churchill Downs, your May 3rd Derby soiree or perhaps watching it on your couch with a mint julep in hand, you’re in luck! I scoured the net and found quite a few absolutely GORGEOUS Kentucky Derby party dresses that will have you looking and feeling fab. If you’re more the romper/jumpsuit type, here are some fab options as well. PS: Be sure to come back tomorrow, I will be featuring beautiful Kentucky Derby hats to pair with your stunning new dress!!!
