Derby Dress of the Day: Navy Pops

Apr 19, 2014

I’m sitting here working on this post watching the finishers come through of the Kentucky Derby Mini and Full Marathon. Nothing like watching someone run 26.2 miles in under 2.5 hours while I sit on my butt to make you feel lazy. But seriously, big congrats to anyone who went out this morning and crushed 13.1 or 26.2 miles. This may be all lip service but I’m thinking of trying to train for the mini next year. We’ll see how that goes.

The Marathon is another one of those great Derby events that gets you in the mood for Derby week. So with only TWO WEEKS until the races, it’s crunch time to get your look nailed down. Don’t panic though, you’ve still got time. If you’re in the bluegrass, head out to the local shops and start trying on dresses and if you’re not – head over here, check out some of my favorites and order away. My suggestion is to pick a site with free returns (like Revolve, Shopbop, Nordstrom), order a few dresses and then try them on at home before settling on a favorite.

Today’s look is featuring another lovely from Dress & Dwell on my friend and co-worker Hayley. This dress was tried on by a few gals and was universally flattering – it’s also the perfect blank palette for lots of colorful accessories (like her amazing Brain Atwood heels). Oh and did I mention it’s only $68.

p.s. – Today is the Dandelion Trifecta Sale! I’m about to head up there to use a little birthday gift card I have. Stop by and save on all kinds of Derby accessories!
