derby fashion: accessories

Deciding which dress to wear for the Derby is only half the fun! As someone who loves to accessorize I’ve determined that picking my dress is like picking a canvas, it simply sets the stage for the look but by no means does it complete it.When people think Derby they think big hats. However, that's not the only option for accessorizing.

For the Oaks, I’ll be dressing up a bit more than the Derby and will be wearing both heels and a hat or headpiece for the day. Maybe it's my slight obsession with Kate Middleton, but this yearI've been drawn to fascinators more and more. So this green piece is definitely an option.

For the infield I’ve decided to forego the hat and where a headband and sandals for a more fun and youthful look. I'm loving the anthropologie headbands! If your not going to the derby I would still consider purchasing one of these to dress up an every-day look.

I hope you've enjoyed my fashion picks for this year's derby festivities! Are you planning on attending?
