Casual Derby Day Outfit with Vineyard Vines + GIVEAWAY

Thank you to Vineyard Vines for sponsoring this post. All opinions are my own.

The Kentucky Derby is quickly approaching.  It’s such a big event in Kentucky–even if you’re not at the Derby, you’re watching the Derby.  We always all pick a horse to win.  I always pick my horse based on the name that resonates the most with me.haha Derby parties are so much fun, so I wanted to share a casual Derby Day outfit featuring Vineyard Vines’ Kentucky Derby 2017 collection.

Pullover: c/o Vineyard Vines // Shorts: c/o Vineyard Vines // Lace Top: Who What Wear via Target (similar, similar, similar, similar) //  Earrings: c/o Southern Belle Glitz (comes in 12 colors) // Clutch: Gigi New York // Sandals: Tory Burch via Ebay // Sunnies: Quay–only $50!
Both my Shep Shirt popover and patchwork shorts are from the Vineyard Vines’ Kentucky Derby collection. Both pieces include a patchwork design with the popular Vineyard Vine whale motif as well as itty-bitty jersey silks.  The blues, pinks, purples, and pinks included in the pattern are perfect for spring. The Shep Shirt is also embroidered with the Vineyard Vines logo intertwined with a horsehoe and “Kentucky Derby 2017.” 
While a popover and shorts may seem like a simple outfit, I wanted to mix things up for my Derby Day party look.  So I added a crochet lace tee under my popover that really dresses up the shorts.  I love how the lace details show at the neck and the hem of the popover. It adds a fun, unique twist to the outfit.
For accessories, I decided to forgo a necklace, so I just added a pair of tassel earrings that picked up the purple in the pattern. My shoes and bag are great neutrals that allow the colorful pattern of the outfit to shine.  
Vineyard Vines has so many great pieces in their Kentucky Derby collection! If you’re looking for something more dressy, checkout their Derby dresses, fascinators, and hats.  They also have several tees for an even more casual look.  I snagged this one.
Also, it was recently announced that Vineyard Vines will be coming to The Summit at Fritz Mall in Lexington, KY later this summer! If you live in central Kentucky, stay tuned for more details regarding an exact opening date.
