Did Someone Say “Derby?”

Spring & Summer are my favorite shopping times of the year! I try to save as much as I can for spring and summer shopping because of ALL the beautiful dresses.  For some reason I get completely obsessed and it seems to all start around planning for the Derby & Preakness.  I am especially excited for the Kentucky Derby because my husband and I are hosting a viewing PARTY!!!!  I am not exactly sure what I will be wearing yet but our theme is Big Hats, Bourbon and Bow Ties! Since its a back yard party and I will be running around a good bit I am looking for something that is comfortable and casual that I can wear all summer long.  I did a quick drop in to the Baltimore Anthropologie last week and created this outfit! I saw the Midships Sun Hat immediately and then was a the hunt for a dress to match. Luckily, I did not have to go too far when I notice their Cafe dress. It is definitely in my top 5 choices for the weekend!
