Dreaming of Derby: Dresses


Every year on the first Saturday in May my old Kentucky home hits the spotlight as the world looks on to watch the run for the roses in the Kentucky Derby. Derby isn't just a day for us--- it's weeks of anticipation and celebrations full of parties, eating, drinking, and of course DRESSES. Let's be real..for us girls it's all about the dresses and accessories. Indulge yourself in seersucker, florals, pastels, bows, Lilly---every preppy girl's dream occasion! 

I won't be making it to Derby this year (NOLA here I come) but these beauties would be top on my list if I were hitting up next week's festivities! 

You simply cannot go wrong with floral for derby. I'm crushing on this floral romper which would be perfect for a low key celebration! 

Details: 1. Romper; 2. Maxi 3. Floral Midi 4. Floral Fit and Flare 5. Floral Flare


If there is ever a time when you can get away with sticking a big bow on yourself--it's Derby! 
Details: 1. Yellow Lace Dress 2. Tulip Dress 3. Mesh Midi Dress 4. Bow Skater Dress (On sale for $28!!) 5. Fit and Flare

All of these dresses are giving me Derby fever! Which one is your favorite?
