Kentucky Derby Attire with Jennifer Lake


It's that time of year again! The first Saturday of May and the Kentucky Derby. Our office has been abuzz with many of our gals and guys heading to the Run for the Roses this year. For weeks now, we've all talked... Kentucky Derby attire! From the incredible hats to the colorful dresses to of course, the beautiful jewels.

While planning our looks, we just knew we had to bring in one of our favorites to give us all major styling tips – Jenn Lake of Style Charade, who is at the Derby this year proving that more is definitely more. We sent her our newest arrivals, and she seriously set the bar. (And also dished out all of her best tips with us on her blog!)

She shared, "For as long as I can remember, colorful statement earrings have been a part of my life (and jewelry box)... When considering my Kentucky Derby attire for the upcoming weekend, I immediately considered how to incorporate statement jewelry!

Enter Kendra Scott – my go-to for special occasion jewelry brand. If you’ve read this blog since 2015, you know (and have seen) me wear her pieces nearly every week. From beautiful statement earrings to delicate necklaces, a unique bangle or even a fun ring.


“One easy way to elevate your outfit for special occasions are a statement ring and bracelet. This season’s Kit cocktail ring is a must-have for your jewelry box. Also living for Kendra Scott’s bracelets – they’re easy to layer.”

Statement Earrings

“Trust me! Statement earrings are the best and #1 compliment inducing accessory (and Kendra Scott is the QUEEN of them). My personal faves include these Jenni Earrings (adore the name). They were my ultimate pick for Kentucky Derby attire (also love this longer Jennifer version).”
