In case you’ve been living under a rock this weekend (or don’t have a husband and a bunch of guy neighbors who will literally talk about every sport and competition in existence, either way…), the Kentucky Derby happened. And whether you’re up on your Kentucky Derby knowledge or not, in my mind, it means a couple of things: you get dressed up, wear a fabulous hat, and throw a little shindig. (I mean, how fabulous is this hat? Fabulous enough to make it worthy of the giant hat box that I’ll be moving to our new house THIS WEEK. But more on that later.) So with the help of Stella Artois (and a few neighbors, family, and friends), shindig I did. And because this was a fancy little fete (in our coming along slowly but surely new backyard), we celebrated Derby-style with Stella Artois’ beyond delish Cidre. Whether you’re a beer gal or not, anyone can get down with a little adult apple juice, #AmIRight? Everyone there agreed (even the macho beer-drinkers) that it wasn’t overly sweet but nice and refreshing for a little backyard evening. And a little tip from me? Enjoy it with a fancy-schmancy hat on because, well, YOLO or something. Cheers, dears!

That dress! Wow. You didn’t mention in your post where the dress is from! It;s so beautiful.

Hi! Unfortunately it’s a few seasons old, so it’s sold out 🙁 It’s French Connection though.
