Derby Dress of the Day: Feathered

May 1, 2014

May Day.

It’s here. Usually May 1st is a combination of excitement for my best pal Kelly’s birthday (happy happy birthday friend!) and Derby. This year, I’m just as excited about Kelly’s birthday with a little less excitement for Derby because I know some seriously epic FOMO is about to set in. I can’t lie though, I’m pretty pumped to have FINALLY made it to my last month of being pregnant. Only 21 more days (max!). Seriously, I’m ready for this to be over and to meet that little lady (feel free to make an appearance early).

So today is what Churchill Downs is now calling Thurby. It’s what people around here call crunch time. Last minute prep is underway everywhere – spray tans, picking up dresses from the tailors, making last minute hat adjustments, nail appointments, party prep – it’s an all-out rush to the finish for everyone (even if you’re rushing to get out of town).

Over here, I’m rushing to share some of these last Derby outfits with you all. I’ve still got a handful left so I’m going to pop in twice today to share some more inspiration although I’m guessing most of you are ready for the races by now.

Today’s look, on Megan, one that is perfect for those last-minute shoppers. You probably have a great LBD already hanging up in your closet. So if you’re in need of a last minute look – grab it and then head out to pick out a colorful headpiece. You can match just about anything and you’ll be set in no time.
