Kentucky Derby Style: Pink Printed

Sorry for ducking out with no dress of the day last Friday. I was in Lexington for a work event that had me running around like a crazy person. Thankfully it was for a pretty fun launch of the new Moet & Chandon Champagne – Moet Ice – which is created to be served on ice. Basically it is my new spring cocktail of choice. Find it, try it.

Shameless work plug aside, it’s back to the grind on all things Derby at work and here on the blog. If you’ve been wanting to see more hats, I totally understand, fascinators are everywhere right now and I do tend to favor them. But I still love me a hat and today’s is a beauty. Simple yet a total standout piece by Maureen’s Creations. This hat would look great with a ton of different dresses thanks to its classic color palette. I love it paired with this pink and black fit and {slight} flare from Dress & Dwell.

If you’re looking for a pink dress for the Kentucky Oaks but don’t want to do anything too girly, you’re going to want this dress (it’s only $52!). The black gives it a little edge that pink-adverse girls will love. You can also go edgier on shoes and bags or keep it classic like we did here.

Kentucky Derby Style: Pretty in Pastels

When it comes to Kentucky Derby looks, this one is right up my alley. I love the light weight, bright dress (and the fact that it has straps) finished off with a minty fascinator. I’d snatch up this entire look for a day outdoors at the track. This would actually be perfect for gals heading to the Paddock area or with walk-around tickets. A dress that stands out in a shape that won’t have you messing with straps or adjusting all day. And by that, I mean perfect to run around and have fun in all day. Pair it with wedges like Shannon did and you’ll be good for a long day at Churchill Downs.

Local gals, if you’re looking to get a custom piece made this weekend you can stop by The Mill, Kenzie Kapp’s studio downtown (or give her a shout) or you can meet up with Britni from Headcandi today at Dress & Dwell, tomorrow at Bella Rose in Lexington or Saturday at Clodhoppers in St. Matthews!

Kentucky Derby Style: Green and Floral Neoprene

Gotta keep it short and sweet today  – just like today’s pretty model/friend Shannon :  ) – because work is slowly threatening to drown me. Well work or the 8 more inches of rain we’re getting today. I just have to keep thinking – April showers bring May flowers. Bring on the flowers.

I bet a lot of us don’t go out thinking we want a green fascinator or hat to top off our Derby look but I am pretty obsessed with this floral piece by Britni at Headcandi especially when paired with this floral fit and flare dress. Speaking of the dress, it’s another Dress & Dwell number that will have you doing a double take on how reasonable it is.

You probably recognize this print since it’s similar to one J.Crew had out last year. I can say after seeing both in person that this one is just as cute and high-quality as the original version. The neoprene makes it really comfortable and also smooths everything out (we all know that’s a thing). This dress would also be great for Kentucky Oaks. If you’re a gal that doesn’t like to do a ton of pink, this has just enough for you to feel festive without going full on saccharine sweet or Barbie pink. You’ll also be sure to get plenty of wear out of this after the track. I’d pair it with white Chucks or Supergas and a denim jacket or vest for a summer bbq. Basically I’m saying you need this dress.
