Derby Days

The royal wedding was an event full of interesting headpieces. Jumping across the pond, the Kentucky Derby won’t let the Brits upstage them. Grab your mint julep, don your finest frock, and bedazzle with your widest brim hat as the crowd sings along to “My Old Kentucky Home.” Even if you don’t plan on rubbing shoulders with the rich and famous, these hats are perfectly suitable for a day on the town or a lazy day at the beach.
