ORLANDO, Fla. – The Arnold Palmer Invitational is Orlando's premier golf event, so why wouldn't the Bay Hill babes 'dress' to the nines? That's exactly what they did Saturday, where even the fear of thunderstorms didn't rain on their fashion parades.

Here's a look at some of my favorite spectator looks on-site at Bay Hill on Saturday:

1. Erica Wendorf

You wouldn't know it just by looking at Erica – she's dressed like a seasoned spectator – but this was her first time at the Arnold Palmer Invitational. Her cool and care-free maxi dress is paired perfectly with a skinny glitter belt, matching fedora and Coach purse.

2. Elise Fernandez

Elise's look is similar to Erica's (above) because it's a can't-miss choice for golf spectating attire. Elise pairs her green maxi dress and fedora with a statement necklace from and a Nine West wristlet.

3. Morgan Herbst

Morgan shops local for her Bay Hill get-up – her dress and belt came from a Lake Mary, Fla. boutique named Sophie & Trey. She pairs the springtime stripes with pearls on her ears and wrist. It's her first time to the API and Morgan said her boyfriend encouraged her to wear a dress and fun jewelry ... because he knows that's what all the PGA Tour wives and girlfriends wear. Morgan said the dress was super comfy and she would have worn it anyway.

4. Jaimie DeLong

Jamie is a beginner golfer – her boyfriend is teaching her – and it's her first time at the API. She's dressed in head-to-toe Target apparel and said she only had to try on one outfit this morning because 'you can't go wrong with a sundress.' No, Jaimie, you can't.

5. Ashley Teater

Newly married just three weeks ago to her touring pro husband Josh Teater, Ashley travels with Josh week-to-week. This dress is Banana Republic paired with an across-the-body Prada purse, Tory Burch sandals and a very stylish and very practical umbrella. Teater says she often wears cotton dresses or Lululemon athletic wear because the clothing is 'so comfortable.'
