Mossimo waffle knit sweater (last seen here),
Gold belt passed down from my grandma,
Vintage hat and bag.
This past weekend, instead of celebrating Cinco de Mayo with what seemed like the rest of New York, Micol and I opted to keep things classy and head to one of our favorite local bars Maison Premiere for their annual Kentucky Derby party complete with a full mint julep menu and a rag band playing tunes.
We hesitated before heading out, unsure of whether we had dressed the part. Should we wear the ridiculous hats full of flowers and butterflies that we had made for the Belmont races a few years ago, or should we keep things more subdued? (This is Brooklyn after all...)
In the end, I settled on a neutral look, topped off with a springy hat that I bought last year at a Salvation Army in LA. Micol went for a black jumper and cropped white linen jacket. And after a few mint juleps in, we were perfectly content with our selections.
How did you spend your weekend?
