DIY Derby Hat, Navy Clutch, quilted clutch, Statement Necklace, Summer Tunic, Thrift Store Fashion, tunic over shorts
Saturday was the Ketucky Derby and we were invited to a Derby Party — the whole family had a blast! The invitation said hats required, like I need an excuse to wear a hat.:)
I whipped up one for me and one for G the morning of the party using a hat we already had and a Thrift Store find ($4.99), a wide ivory grosgrain ribbon that I found in my stash of ribbons, blush pink silk roses I bought at The Christmas Tree Store for $10.00 and a hot glue gun.
The outfit was inspired by OP. I love the idea of layering a shorter dress or tunic with a pair of shorts that just peek out from underneath. I bought the navy and ivory Paper Crane tunic, along with 3 other dresses (to be revealed soon) at Marshall’s. Each was $19.99. The navy shorts (you can barely see them, but they’re there) are J.Crew 4″ Chino Short. I only go with 4″. I don’t know why but they are the perfect length for me. The belt and watch are from Target, the sandals are Nine West (TJ Maxx), the purse is a Thrift Store Find from last year (also seen here), necklace is from my ridiculous JCPenney jewelry buy last fall (also seen here).
