Despite the unexpectedly freezing weather and overcast skies, I had such an incredible time attending the Kentucky Oaks last weekend in Kentucky! A tradition at The Churchill Downs since 1875, the Kentucky Oaks is a longstanding tradition and an excuse for celebrities and horse-enthusiasts to parade around town in their brightest, spring attire. There is even a Kentucky Oaks Fashion Show at the event, and it was so much fun seeing all of the crazy and intricate hats and matching dresses! Dressing for the men is just as important, as there were plenty of bright colored sport coats, bowties, and trousers. I even loved how my friend Bodie coordinated his pocket square to match his tie- very dapper indeed!

For this event I decided to let my shoes do the talking, rocking these bright YSL heels. This event was a great way to get into the theme of the weekend and an experience I’ll never forget.
