Today's hat inspiration is what I'll be wearing at the Oaks -- it's a beautiful fascinator I won at a silent auction last Derby season. It's completely appropriate for the Oaks, which has pink as its signature color and is called the Run for the Lilies.
Now, you may wonder why the necklace is not pink on pink, with a little pink thrown in for good measure. The green is the exact color of my Oaks dress, the bronze pearls match a tiny stripe on the dress, and the rose quartz is a soft reflection of the lily. I decided to be somewhat subtle at my neck, since there's no way having big ol' fuchsia flowers on your head can be considered subtle!
