Derby Dress of the Day: Wild Things

Anyone else still recovering from this weekend’s Easter sugar high? I gave up candy for Lent which called for a serious sugar binge yesterday. I’m thinking I may need to give it up for another 40 days to recover. I’m also pretty sure that Easter is now my son’s favorite holiday now. For him combining competitive hide & seek + candy = best day ever.

Now that Easter is behind us, there’s no more big days on the calendar between now and Derby so the mad rush is officially underway. Today I’m hoping to pop-in with a couple Derby posts but I’ve had a lot of friends ask me for dress suggestions. I always point them HERE to my Derby pinterest board since I’ve got WAY more dresses there than I could ever post over here. If you’re looking for options, definitely check it out.

Today’s look is a little walk on the wild side with Caitlin and Ashley. I love the less traditional Derby-style print on the Milly dress from Clodhoppers that Cailtin is sporting alongside a more traditional white Derby hat. For Ashley, we went with a blank canvas in the form of this simple, yet super flattering white number from Dress & Dwell. With an all-white dress you can really go for any look with accessories. Pastel for a preppy look. Bright neons for a bold look or like we did here, a little walk on the wild (okay not super wild) side with feather and red and yellow pops of color.

Have you settled on your Derby look yet?

Derby Dresses of the Day: Think Pink! It’s Oaks Day!

Woo Hoo!

As I’m writing this, it feels like it’s Christmas Eve or maybe, Christmas Eve’s eve. As you read this, I may be waking exhausted since I may be too excited to sleep (thank you Five Hour Energy). Today’s my day to get all glammed up and hit the track and thankfully the weather is supposed to cooperate (fingers crossed).

It’s all about thinking pink for Oaks – the day is all about the ladies, or fillies, and the pink is a celebration of Breast Cancer Survivors -¬† but that doesn’t mean you have to pull a Miss Piggy and go head-to-toe pink. I love the idea of subtly incorporating pink into your look. For my look, this light and airy number from Dress & Dwell has the perfect Southern combination of green and pink. And well Beth, she’s looking like a sophisticated and modern Barbie doll. I am absolutely obsessed with this headCandi fascinator - the pink, the polka dots, the black and white. In love.

I can’t wait to share pictures of the fascinator Britni made for me (i’m sure you’ll be able to sneak a look on instagram today). She dropped it off and I definitely swooned a little.

If you’re going to be at the track, make sure to snap a picture and send it to me at danielle@louwhatwear.com – I can’t wait to see all the stylish guys and gals out there!

On Beth - Dress: Dolce Vita White Dress available at Dress & Dwell; Fascinator: headCandi by Britni Knable; Shoes: ZARA; Clutch: Beth’s
On Me – Dress: Dress & Dwell; Hat: headCandi by Britni Knable; Clutch and Necklace: Dandelion; Heels: Dolce Vita (old)
