Hello my Miss Olivia Says readers! I was able to wrap up my two week vacay in between jobs with a Kentucky Derby party at Rolling Hills Country Club in Golden, Colorado. My boyfriend, Paul, got a membership through work and was able to list me as a significant other, which means access to golf, pool, fitness center, and swanky parties like the Kentucky Derby one we went to on Saturday. We knew about the party for a couple of weeks now so I had time to find a cute dress. I got lazy and decided not to go all out with a hat because I just bought a Jeep Patriot and currently am mourning my bank account.
The only picture with the iPhone Depth Effect where my eyes aren’t closed…and I look awkward.
My mom picked out this pastel striped dress from Ross while I was home visiting my parents. While my mom and I were shopping at Ross I got two dresses and finally decided that this one screams Kentucky Derby!
Classic Country Club: cucumber sandwiches, weird veggie dippers, and mini biscuits and meat.
I tried a couple sips of the Mint Juleps they had complimentary for guests. For those of you who don’t know, Mint Juleps have bourbon in it (ew), but these weren’t bad. Not my drink of choice but not terrible!
I think I asked the Membership Coordinator to take our picture like 16 times because I kept not liking how they turned out. Oops.
