Joe and I had so much fun on our trip to the Derby! The day before the Derby is the Oaks day where you are encouraged to wear pink to show support for breast cancer survivors. We had infield tickets for that day so we had fun walking around and taking in the atmosphere. We even ran into KJP and if you follow him on snap chat I made an appearance! It was great seeing him again and chatting with the Vineyard Vines crew.
We had a blast at the Kentucky Derby. We got second row seats on the starting line so we had an amazing view of the races. We went into the infield briefly to visit the Vineyard Vines tent and met a fellow IG-er named Meghan from Boston who was super sweet! If you watched the Kentucky Derby snap story you would have seen one of Joe’s snaps from the final race.
We didn’t bet on any horses but we had so much fun being at the Derby and experiencing Churchill Downs for ourselves. I personally enjoyed seeing everyone dressed up so nicely – ladies in hats and men in seersucker. It was quite the sight to look out in the crowd and see a sea of hats, fascinators, and bow ties. It’s definitely an event everyone should experience for themselves at some point.
