Guys, Columbus has a Kentucky Derby-like event called Steeplechase. Yes, my little town has a major event with horses and hats and champagne and “high society folk.” I’m so excited. With all of my newfound excitement, I decided to put together a few looks which will work for this fun, social party happening in Columbus (seriously guys, Columbus, Georgia has a Derby like party and I’m going!).
Dress: Kate Spade NY $400 (got it at the outlet!)
Necklace: Wynnifried Style Studio $28
Clutch: J. Crew (similar) $19
Shoes: Marc Jacobs (old, but similar)
Why it works: I love the girly-ness of this look with a fit and flare dress and fun pop of color bow shoes. This necklace is so fun because it is one long strand, so it can layer or be worn as a long statement piece. Oh and wedges are key for standing on the grass all day!
Dress: Tracy Negoshian c/o Wynnifried Style Studio $138
Fur Vest: Tart c/o Wynnifried Style Studio $180
Booties: Dolce Vita $100
Hat: Wynnifried Style Studio $48
Why it works: This look is a real Southern fall favorite. From the fur vest (so comfortable and warm) to the patterned dress: hello South! The hat adds a chicness to it and the booties are a great more casual option than heels, especially if you are going to be standing around all day!
Stay tuned tomorrow for looks 3 & 4!
More about Steeplechase: The Steeplechase at Callaway Gardens, known as the “event of the season” and always falling on the first Saturday in November, brings family and friends together to watch thoroughbred horses race over timber and brush hurdles.
Tailgating together, either in tents, box seats or the infield, guests select their favorite horse in each of the five sanctioned races and cheer them to the finish; they entertain their children with Stick Pony races, pony rides, Jack Russell Terrier races, rock climbing wall and in the Kids Corral. There are bagpipers and blacksmiths, as well as the parade of the Midland Foxhounds, the Southern Views Hat Contest, the Sunny 100 Tailgate Competition and the Ledger-Enquirer Terrace Box Competition.
