Derby Dress of the Day: Perfectly Pastel

Apr 14, 2014

I know Mondays can be the pits especially after weekends as lovely as this last one so I decided to try and keep the Spring vibes going with today’s post.

I’m in need of the pick me up too since I’m pretty sure this past weekend I woke up as an entirely different person. Let’s just say I went from seriously pregnant to “is it time yet?” overnight. It’s pretty easy to say that I’m just not suited for these last few weeks.

That’s in stark contrast to this look on today’s lovely friend/model, Kristen as she is perfectly suited for this amazingly pretty pastel look. This Shoshanna dress is one of my favorites of the season and is worth the investment as you can go all-out fancy with it or make it an easy summer sun dress with flats (like these).

We topped it off with this amazing Headcandi piece and a simple, mint necklace from Dandelion (more news coming up this week on a great Derby sale they’re having!). I’m hoping I convinced Kristen to buy the whole look for her day at the track because, well, I mean there’s really no words needed – the pictures speak for themselves.
