'Tis the season, y'all, and let me tell ya, it's one of the best seasons of the year, but then again, I may be a little biased since I'm a Kentuckian.

It's DERBY SEASON!*and the crowd goes wild*

I always receive questions on what to wear to the Kentucky Derby, so I've put together a few Derby outfits to share with y'all over the course of this week and next — beginning with this Kentucky Derby Run for the Roses Dress. Isn't it stunning?!

Keep in mind that all of these dresses, including this 'Run for the Roses' dress, are not only great for the Kentucky Derby, but also perfect for weddings and events! You may have noticed on my Snapchat {username: a_southerndrawl} that my best friend just got married last weekend and I wore this dress for her bridal luncheon and then again later that night for the rehearsal dinner. It was quite the hit and perfect for all types of spring events! Plus, it's a super flattering dress + it's lightweight.

Oh, and if you're trying to get your boyfriend or hubs on board {like I am}, then make sure to snag this blazer for him! It's quite...festive...but adorable, nonetheless!

Are any of y'all attending the Kentucky Derby or the Oaks? It's such a fun time!

P.S. This rose print is available in a few different items, like this dress, this top, or this pullover!
