The Perfect Kentucky Derby Tote & Other Favorite Derby Accessories

Hello and happy Monday! I hope the weekend was good to you. Mine was really fun. Mostly I’m just glad to have my other half back in town from a work trip. All is right in the world again.

Well, get ready for Kentucky Derby posts this week! Today’s post is all about a sweet little Derby find and shopping local. A couple weekends ago we had some friends in town and did a little shopping on Main Street in Boerne, TX. One of my favorite shops is Jac’s. I love a store that always has something new to see when you visit and Jac’s is like a wonderland for me. Just going inside makes me feel good. I can always find something (ok maybe a lot of things) that I have to have. Naturally this tote went home with me.

 

I wish I knew the artisan (unfortunately there is no identifying tag and I neglected to ask) because it’s beautifully made. Jac’s had three versions, all with a stamped horse and green striping. It’s really deep and has a small interior pocket for keys or a wallet. It would make a fun overnight bag or farmer’s market tote, but I think the dark green stripes and leather handles give it the timeless classic feel that Kentucky Derby attire commands.

I love shopping local and supporting our local businesses. The helpful staff at Jac’s was so sweet and wrapped everything up beautifully for me. I can’t wait to go back and see what else they have!

Below I’ve linked some of my other favorite Kentucky Derby accessories. It’s really all about the hat, but you can still have a little fun with someย additional pieces.
