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!

Want more Milly …
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.

Only 19 days til Derby! So crazy.
Today the Shopbop Friends & Family sale started. This is especially good timing for anyone still looking for a Derby dress since all their full-price dresses (and all other goodies) are 25% off. So if you’ve had your eye on something, it’s time to take the plunge.
I’ve talked before about some pointers for picking out a dress if you’re going to be in the Paddock or anywhere else where you won’t have a seat the entire day. But just as a reminder, I suggest picking a dress you won’t have to adjust every few minutes so steer clear of strapless numbers. The options below are great because you’ll look totally chic and put together but comfortable. Also, the yellow one in the middle (my fav) has pockets. Pockets are key for Derby cause you can put your race tickets and cash or your cell phone in them.
And since you’ll be on your feet most of the day – pick wedges or a pretty pair of espadrilles (the pair below are under $50 + 25% off today). Happy Shopping!
