I just saw that Vineyard Vines is the official style of my beloved Kentucky Derby. I don’t think I’ve squealed this much over a clothing trend since…ever.
Sadly, I have never been to the Kentucky Derby…but I vow to someday make my way to Louisville, floppy hat on head, and mint julep in hand, (hopefully I’ll have acquired a taste for them by then – if not, I’ll fake it).
A huge fan of
New England and Martha’s Vineyard itself, the pretty, preppy style that is Vineyard Vines fits me like a glove. Add a few horse prints in the mix and I’m a very happy camper! Though I believe VV has yet to debut their entire Kentucky Derby collection, below are my favorite pieces so far!
