Kentucky Derby Style: Pink DVF for Oaks

Up until now I haven’t gotten in to the full Derby look action so I’m coming in quick  with a little Kentucky Oaks action. This DVF pretty pink option with a little black and white trim was one of the simplest dresses we had but also one of my favorites. The detailing paired perfectly with this black and gray Headcandi piece which was another favorite because of the height (love something with some height).

We’re still trying to nail down our Derby plans but unfortunately I have to sit out Oaks this year (boo work) so this look is as close as I’ll get to the Pink Out for Ladies Day at Churchill Downs. So if you’re going, be sure to bet on the fillies and have a lily for me.

Speaking of going to the track, I want to see your outfits for the races. Whether you’re going to Thurby (still not sure I can get on board with that nickname), Oaks or Derby, tag me on Instagram (@louwhatwear) in your pictures and I’ll include them in my post-Derby round up. Or if you just want to share a sneak peek of what you’re wearing, I wanna see it! Derby is my jam so I can’t get enough of all the fun looks.

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!
