One of my favorite Spring events, the Winterthur Museum and Gardens' Point-to-Point Steeplechase is next month. This is area's annual "see and be seen" event, so the perfect ensemble is absolutely necessary! And at Point-to-Point, tradition dictates the addition of a stunning, Kate Middleton-worthy hat.

Kentucky Derby HatsOne of my favorite Spring events each year, the Winterthur Museum and Gardens Point-to-Point Steeplechase, is next month. This is the area’s annual “see and be seen” event, so the perfect outfit is absolutely necessary! And at Point-to-Point, tradition dictates the addition of stunning, Kentucky Derby Inspired Hats.

In addition to stunning, over-the-top spring hats, the event includes a tailgating competition (no grills and burgers – we are talking exqusite vintage French linens, sparkling Waterford crystal and Veuve Clicquot champagne), an exhibit of antique Rolls Royce and Bentley cars, and a vintage carriage parade, in addition to a day of thrilling steeplechase races.

Here are some of my top picks to add a simple but chic finishing touch to my Point-to-Point ensemble. Now, if only the rain will hold off!
