Naturally, the day I walk into Resse Witherspoon’s
living room store in Nashville, they release their Kentucky Derby 2017 collection. Naturally. Before we go there, though, if you guys don’t know Draper James, you have to check them out. It’s Reese’s brand and it’s vibe is southern charm meets preppy American, aka heaven to me.
Another time southern charm meets preppy American? At the Kentucky Derby. Every year I say I’m going next year, and then the cycle repeats. It’s a bucket list dream, ya’ll, and I will live it! But for now, instead of rounding up my favorite pieces from a variety of all-American brands, I thought I’d stick with Reese’s line. I really love how she specializes some pieces for particular events and how others are neutral enough to wear over and over. That being said, here are my Draper James Derby Day picks:
I’d be lying if I say I can shop at Draper James…please please please bring your prices down, Reese! I picked up these shorts the second we walked into the store, and well…sadly hung them right back up.
Who’s going to the Derby this year?? Have a mint julep for me!
