Derby Dress of the Day: For the Oaks

Now that I’ve decided to go to Oaks, I’m thinking more and more about what to wear. This DVF ruffled beauty has been put into the Oaks bucket but you could certainly sport it for Derby too.

I love the bright bold pink and I know some people may think they need to down play the shoes when the dress is so bright but I go the other way. I think it’s a great opportunity to go all out. Pair this pretty with some bright green or blue sandals. Not into sandals, try this graphic ankle strap pair from ASOS. I’m thinking you could have a lot of fun doing a hat to go with any of these options.

If you’re going to be in the Paddock or walking around a lot, I’d probably opt for something more sensible but I think this sophisticated style is perfect for the Jockey Club Suites, Millionaire’s Row or to sport to the newest area of the track, The Mansion.

Shopping: Summer Sandals

All this blogosphere talk of Spring has me dreaming a spring break vacation. But with the weather showing no sign of warming up and my calendar lacking any trips down south in the imminent future – it doesn’t look like that’s in the cards for me.  That doesn’t mean that I can’t spend my days dreaming of sandal weather.

My latest Target Style post indulges those daydreams. When I’m packing up for a beach trip, I try to leave my heels at home and pack an variety of fun sandals. Not only does it save space but it keeps me in that laid back mode for the trip. If you were a TSA agent and you opened up my suitcase you’d inevitably find a pair of Target sandals so I’m looking forward to picking one (or more) of these pairs for spring/summer wear. For now all my sandals are hidden away in the back of my closet but hopefully some of you all are planning a beach trip and can snag one of these pretties.

Clockwise from Top: Braided Thong Sandal ($19.99); Tribal Thong Sandal ($16.99) Leather Embellished Sandal ($19.99); Stripe Falk Sandal ($19.99); Tribal Thong Sandal ($16.99); Bow Sandals ($14.99); Falk Leopard Sandal ($19.99); Glitter Leather Sandal ($16.99)

I love the black bow pair and the leopard falk sandals for nice dinner, the tribal print pairs for lazy days at the beach and the stripe pair with shorts and a tee for a day of exploring.


It’s Time for Springtime.
