Shopping: The Fifth Watches

I’ve been a bit of a slave to my Fitbit for the last year or so and as much as I love it, I do miss wearing a real watch. So when the shame of not hitting my step goal became a daily reality thanks to lugging around this baby, I decided a switch was in order. Enter The Fifth Watches.

The sleek, chic and classic yet modern watches were just what I needed for a break from the step counting. Here’s the catch though, The Fifth Watches only go on sale on the 5th day of the month for five days. You can order one during that time but if you miss the cut-off, you’ll have to wait until the next month to get your order in.

I fell in love with the simple rose gold with a pale pink strap option and snagged it during the April sale. I’ve been sporting it ever since and counting down the days until I could share it over here. Didn’t want to give out all the details only for you not to be able to order it.

The price point on these pretties is incredibly reasonable and it makes for a great last minute Mother’s Day gift (just print out one of their gorgeous instagram photos and slip it in a card).

Derby Dress of the Day: For the Kentucky Oaks

It’s Derby Week! Can’t believe it is finally here.

There is truly no limit to my love for Derby and all the fun leading up to the race. Definitely get out and take in some of the festivities – Chow Wagon, Steamboat Races, Waterfront Concerts, random parties –  if you can. It’s by far one of the best weeks to be in Louisville.

Since the clock is ticking when it comes to getting ready for the races, I picked today’s option (plus the extra below it) from Shopbop because they offer Amazon Prime shipping. This is super clutch and means no need to pay an outrageous rush shipping fee to make sure your dress is here on time.

If you’re heading to the Oaks, don’t forget to incorporate some pink into your look. I’ve talked before about how I’m not the Elle Woods, all-pink everything kind of gal but there’s tons of ways to incorporate a touch of the day’s signature color into your look. It can be as simple as some whispy pink feathers in your fascinator or flowers on your hat.

Speaking of hats. If you’re still in need of one, hit up the local boutiques. Dress & Dwell, Clodhoppers, Rodes, Circe and more all have lots of options still in the stores. You can order one of Britni Knable’s Headcandi hats or headpieces off her etsy page and ask for the option to pick it up locally or have her deliver it to your hotel if you’re coming in from out of town.

One great last minute option –  hit up a friend that you know has been before, often times swapping out hats or headpieces is just as easy and way cheaper than getting something new. You can always re-dress it with a quick trip to Dee’s Crafts.
