Last year around this time I sent out a fellow fashionista to get some great pics and relate the happenings of the Nashville Steeplechase: a horse racing, fashion wearing, mint julep drinking event. She did a great job and got some awesome photos. Hopefully this year we will be able to attend together! However, this weekend, I am pulling out the big guns and I will be representing Patti Cake at the grand ole Kentucky Derby! I am so excited, I am trolling pinterest like nobody's business to get hat inspired. I think I will wear a fascinator for part of the day and then a hat for the other part. What d'yall think? Any ideas? Which looks do you like best?
The Japanese Cherry Blossom Festival was a lush, hot day filled with good food and light afternoon breezes. The smells of the sweet blossoms were mesmerizing, and we had a lazy afternoon to take it all in. It was glorious.
Hi guys and gals! Sorry for my absence on the blog scene last week, the tax man callith. The only way that I could manage to sit down, concentrate, and do my taxes was if I had a personal ban on all things blog. Otherwise every time I logged on I wanted to comment back to you lovelies, and look at your blogs and your outfits, and recipes, and general fabulousness, ect. It was a tough battle, but I won, and my taxes have finally been submitted. Huzzah! Now let's celebrate with some floral prints and a promise I will never leave you again...until next tax season.
Land locked! No escaping to a beach front here. Drats! Time to play pretend with my nautically inspired outfit. Left my hair au natural for the beach effect, it always looks better after a dip in the ocean. Ah, well, here's dreaming for now.

When putting this look together I was surprised that I didn't have any clothing with nautical fonts since I love ocean/ beach inspired looks. Then realizing that my living room has a nautical theme, I figured this is probably a good thing as I wouldn't want to be camouflaged into it...
yeah, I'll let him be the lucky one.
