shoes: Arco Avenue (c/o) // dress: Rivers’s smilar here and here (obsessed with this one) // hat: Rivers’s similar here and here // purse: Arco Avenue (c/o)
This past weekend I got to go to Baton Rouge and visit with my best and oldest friend, Rivers! I miss the days of being able to get to her house in under 11 minutes instead of over 11 hours. Ah well, such is life, and it makes weekends like last so much sweeter.
On Saturday we went to the Houmas House for brunch and cocktails before heading to the Roux House to watch the Derby. Of course I LOVED seeing all the hats – it always makes me think of Audrey Hepburn in My Fair Lady and the “come on Dover” scene.
I have ALWAYS wanted to go to the Derby. One of these days it’s going to happen. Until then I’ll just keep wearing hats and drinking mojitos with friends. I know mint juleps are “the” drink but I just can’t do whiskey. David was fishing with all the guys of my family and his dad in Louisiana so between the two of us we had a fun filled and relaxing weekend with people we love.
And can we talk really quick about Arco Avenue’s shoes? They are really really good. I’ve never found a boutique in Mississippi that has that high of quality shoes without being the crazy expensive. Her shoes are such high quality, feminine, and wearable. (I’m not getting paid to say this) I just really really love her stuff so if you are in Jackson or close – you should stop by or check out their website. I especially like their wedges because the majority of the heels aren’t too high or too low, they are juuuuuuust right.
Thanks so much for reading and hope your week is off to a great start!
