Time for Floppy Hats!

The Kentucky Derby is a time for beautiful sundresses and big floppy hats! I’m so happy that Chicago stayed brilliantly sunny yesterday and was perfect for my derby outfit.

Loft Lace Dress

I bought this gorgeous lace dress from Loft for only $30! It was on sale, and guess what, it’s on sale again today! I absolutely love this dress. It does run a little big, I am wearing a 00P and I wish it was a little more fitted at the waist. Other than that, this piece is great!

Charming Charlie Necklace

I have accessorized with a bracelet, necklace and belt all in different shades of pink. I needed the belt to give this dress a little definition. The accessories are from Charming Charlie.

J.Crew Pumps

I am also carrying a bright pink Kate Spade bag. A derby outfit wouldn’t be complete without some bright neon color!

YSL Lipstick

Adding a little bit of contrast and edge to my outfit are my pretty J.Crew animal print pumps.

Now for the best part of this look, the hat! Trying to find a hat one day before a party calls for a DIY project 😀 I bought this grey hat and a floral headband from Forever 21. You put the two together with some safety pins and viola, derby hat in all of 2 minutes!

I am also wearing my new lipstick from YSL in a gorgeous shade of bright red.

I had so much fun putting this outfit together! This year it was a derby party, hopefully next year we can go to the actual event 😀
