When it comes to accessories, Elizabeth Taylor put it perfectly – “Jewelry has the power to be the one little thing that makes you feel unique.” Whenever I’m planning an outfit for a special occasion – a friend’s wedding, cousin’s graduation, or in this case- Kentucky Derby attire, I ask myself one question. “How should I accessorize jewelry with special occasion outfits?”

Jennifer Lake Kentucky Derby Outfit

For as long as I can remember, colorful statement earrings have been a part of my life (and jewelry box). Growing up, my mom was never one to invest in expensive jewelry. She never needed a jewelry safe, and rarely flaunted big flashy statement styles. She liked keeping things classic and simple. I’ve taken a similar approach, except I invest in more colorful, bold pieces. 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 review 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.
