Derby Dress of the Day: For the Grandstand

Apr 4, 2014

The Derby countdown continues today with a look for the Grandstand seating at the track. The great part about the grandstand is you’ll be able to see the track, meaning you’ll be able to shout Go Baby Go! at your horse as it comes down the stretch. The bad part is that you’re open to the elements (pray for no rain) in most of the bleacher seats. Since it’s bleacher seats, you don’t have a ton of room to spread out, so I picked a simple dress that you’ll be comfortable in all day while still looking totally put together.

The shift style is great for this area of the track because you won’t have to adjust every time you stand up and down. You also don’t have a lot of fabric to get sat on by your bleacher buddy. If you’re sitting in this area of the track, I definitely recommend keeping your footwear simple so it’s easy to maneuver around people without 1. tripping or 2. ruining someone’s day with a heel through their foot.

Get excited because on Monday I’ll begin posting my complete Derby looks. Lots of fun, pretty inspiration on real gals.

Extra bonus points: All of today’s items are from Piperlime where you can get 25% off all new spring items through April 6th. Just use code SPRING to save. Here’s a few more favorites that would be perfect for the track.
