Dress: Femme {similar} | Belt: Forever 21 | Bow: c/o Bow Me Up | Shoes: Zara {old, similar} | Bag: Chanel {similar} | Sunglasses: Celine | Roman Numeral Bracelet: c/o Olive + Piper | Bracelets: Kate Spade, Stella & Dot | Watch: Michael Kors

Working in a corporate environment always leaves me on the hunt for the perfect dress. I find dresses help eliminate the age-old Monday morning panic statement, "I have nothing to wear!" (Girls you know we've all been there.) The dress came with a white belt but with hopes of adding a personal touch, I swapped it for a pink belt and added this adorable bow from Bow Me Up.

I'm even considering wearing this dress to the 155th Queen's Plate event. For my American gals, you could say this is the Canadian (ok more like Ontario) version of the Kentucky Derby ;) Red carpets, Derby hats and mint juleps are on the menu and I'm so excited to be attending for the first time (eek!). So what do you think - is this Derby appropriate? Or should I look for something a tad fancier?

Thanks for the input! XO

  1. This dress is SO sweet and I adore your belt and of course, the Chanel! Have fun at the derby! I have no experience with those parties, so I can't help you decide on what to wear I'm afraid :-) xo

  2. I love how you paired the belt with that dress! I think it would be perfect for the race, as long as you have a fabulous hat to top it off!

  13. I'd say go for something fancier...maybe something with florals! I do love this outfit though, it's so very Mad Men in the 60's era.
