Steeplechase at Percy Warner is always a fun, Spring event in Nashville. The weather Saturday was perfection and probably the most beautiful day I’ve seen this year! Even though we were at the Hunt Club most of the day, we found time to take a few turns in the infield and stop by the new Fox Den Tent. It felt like there weren’t as many attendees this year as previous years, but it made everything far more quiet and enjoyable! I love Steeplechase so much because I always meet so many awesome new people and see friends over great drinks to catch up! The view is spectacular, the food is incredible and the company is priceless.

I can’t believe it’s already been a year since the last Nashville Steeplechase! This is one of my favorite Annual Southern events and I’ll admit I spend months planning out and putting together my outfit! If you’re going to a derby this year, or just need some outfit inspiration, I hope you enjoy these two looks! I’ve curated a “Proper” and a “Preppy” ensemble, so whether you’ll be celebrating from a general tailgating spot, or from box seats, you’re sure to impress with either of these outfits!
Because I don’t really have a horse in this race I can’t justify spending hundreds on a Derby hat every year, but that doesn’t mean I can’t at least look as if I did! You’ll probably recognize the hat shown in today’s DIY from last year’s Steeplechase post. I think I paid about $40 for that hat at Stein Mart, which is more than I like to pay for something I’m only planning on wearing only for a few hours! I decided this year I would just give that same hat a makeover and save my $$$ for the lobster roll truck at the Race!
