With the “Run for the Roses” less than two weeks away, I realized it was time to seriously start thinking about my Derby Day outfit. After all, the first Saturday in May is undoubtedly an opportunity to get all dolled up and display your flashiest spring finery from floral dresses to feathery hats and sparkly accessories. It seems as though the question of, “which comes first, the hat or the dress?” is truly a matter of the chicken or the egg. In my experience, it’s been a matter of which I find first, whether it’s a dress I truly love or a hat that’s one of a kind. Though I’m not going to the actual Derby, I am going to a local Derby themed event, Bowties & Belles, to benefit a local charity. What did I decide to wear? Check back to find out!
