Derby Day Delights

The Kentucky Derby is this Saturday, and to us non-horse racing fans that means only 1 (ok 2) things. Fancy hats and tasty cocktails – am I right?

As for the hats, if you’re attending a Derby soiree, you’ll definitely want to find some suitable headware. We like this option from Modcloth, which is super cute but won’t break the bank, especially since, who are you kidding, you won’t actually wear it anywhere else!

While the Mint Julep is obviously the signature drink of the Derby, we love the idea of making a little something different, like these mint julep popiscles, for a unique spin on the cocktail.
