Watch the Kentucky Derby in Style


This Saturday is everyone’s favorite reason to sip mint juleps and pull out your Sunday best on a Saturday: it’s the 144th running of the Kentucky Derby. We’ve rounded up some stylish ways to outfit yourself, and your table.

This playful Amanda Uprichard top from Jackson Bootlegger is just the right amount of preppy for a Jackson viewing party. The puffed, short sleeves are so on-trend at the moment. It also comes as a dress, for those who want a fancier look.

Since a fancier top needs something to make it “Jackson Casual,” pair the shirt with some pre-ripped Mother jeans from Terra. The holes and fraying lend just the right amount of edge.

This pocket square from Western Range would be darling wrapped and tied around the wrist as a cuff.

To complete the look, add a statement ring from Sarah Tams (also available at the Bootlegger).

Stop by Lily and Co. to peruse all the new items in for spring and summer. From table linens to throw pillows, they stock a variety to jazz up any fete.

Get into the derby spirit even more with this three bowl server from Arthur Court, found at Belle Cose. Three horseshoes touch at the toe, the rim of their walls showing realistic nail markings. Use it for small snacks like nuts or olives, or fill with mint for your julep bar.

No derby party would be complete without the classic cocktail found at the races, the mint julep. Find these tubmlers at Belle Cose as well.
