So you know my favorite thing about spring??  Sundresses!  And what better place to show of brand new dresses than Gold Cup.  It’s basically like a big fancy tailgate where all the girls rock big hats and the guys show off their bow ties and suspenders while watching all the horse races.  Remember my post last year?  Well it’s my absolute favorite event of the year and this year just so happened to fall on Cinco de Mayo!Yes that means beer-garitas were involved.

So I thought I’d share a few pictures from this past weekend, let you swoon over our gorgeous weather, yummy food and adorable outfits.  Our plot had about 25 of our friends and coincidentally our other friends who were going randomly had the spot right next to us!  It was the perfect day with the best people and I already can’t wait til next year!

Skinny beer-garitas and my favorite Mexican corn dip!
C’mon we had to keep it somewhat fiesta-like.

I made these fruit skewers too which are super easy and make for the perfect summer appetizer!  They also look so pretty on your table and is a simple, but elegant way to present your fruit.

Isn’t my friend Cassie just a doll??
I just adore her.

And yes there were ice luges.
We kept it classy.

Hopefully someday I can actually make it to the Kentucky Derby where I know those ladies go ALL out!  But for now, I look forward to going to Gold Cup each year and you can bet I’m already planning my outfit.

Did anyone else from the DC area head out there this weekend??
I’d love to hear about it!
