Derby Dress of the Day: Topped Off in Neon

We’re doubling up today with one beautiful Headcandi piece paired with two bright and fun dresses. With the races a little more than a week away, I know everyone’s in crunch mode but there’s still time to get your look together. I’ve been sharing lots of Louisville sales/store events over on facebook – so follow along there if you’re looking to stay up on local happenings.

It’s also been a lot of fun to see how gals outside the bluegrass are getting Derby ready. And while I can agree a Derby party is definitely in order no matter what next weekend, there is truly nothing better than being at the track on the first Saturday in May (let the FOMO begin). Bucket list item for sure.

Today Kristen and Lynsey are both sporting the same headpiece with gorgeous Milly numbers from Clodhoppers. Kristen’s is definitely for the gal not afraid of color and standing out while Lynsey’s is for someone who’s looking to put a fun twist on traditional. If you’re still on the hunt for a dress, definitely swing into Clodhoppers  – I know they’ve been getting more dresses in by the day!

Derby Dress of the Day: Out of the Blue

Ready for your daily dose of Derby inspiration? I’m pretty in love with this look on Kristin and I could definitely see myself sporting this from head-to-toe if I could make it to the races this year.

Some people may be against the whole matching look but I think the mix of colors and shades makes it work. If you’re still looking for a dress – this one from Dress & Dwell is perfect for the track and is only $66 (yup, you read that right). You can order it online OR grab it at their store. Go big and get the hat to match while you’re there.

Also, this awesome necklace was still at Dandelion when I was there over the weekend and I thought about scooping it up. Looks great with this but would look equally nice with a simple white tee or button-down.

Derby Dress of the Day: For the Mansion

The Mansion is a {relatively} new area at the track. Opening last year during Derby week, the Mansion is touted as an “elegant” and “luxurious” space that allows you to spend the day watching the races in a swanky, private section of the track that feels more like a home than a sports venue. Fancy right?

As much as I’d love to say I’ve experienced this part of Churchill Downs first hand, I’ve yet to lay eyes on this section but that doesn’t mean I can’t imagine what one might wear there. With it’s more modern feel, I imagine you can be a little more bold and daring here rather than following the more traditional preppy styles commonly found in the old-school elegance of the Turf Club or 5th Floor Clubhouse.

So when I saw these cut-out dresses, I immediately pegged them for a day at the Mansion. You can certainly wear these, especially the adorable pink stripe version, in other areas of the track but I like the sexier vibe these have that fit the mood of the newest section of Churchill.
