Kentucky Derby

I had an amazing weekend in Louisville, Kentucky for the Derby. The Barnstable Brown family hosted an incredible Gala on Friday night with proceeds from tickets benefiting diabetes research for the Barnstable Brown Kentucky Diabetes & Obesity Center at the University of Kentucky. Boys II Men performed and the best moment of the evening was seeing the table of NFL players singing ‘End of the Road’ at the top of their lungs. They do have a sensitive side, haha!

The race on Saturday was amazing. I love this event because of the history, culture and tradition. I rarely wear hats and it’s fun to have a reason to dress up and try something different. I wore a dress by Roland Mouret and a custom-made hat by Louise Green.

I bet on a horse called Pant on Fire, who was ridden by Rosie Napravnik. No woman has ever won the Kentucky Derby so I had to support. They didn’t win but it was still amazing to watch.

Thank you so much to everyone who followed me on twitter this weekend! I’m still getting the hang of it, but appreciate the warm welcome and sweet messages!

Much love,
