I truly wish I could be writing this post after actually witnessing a Triple Crown win, but unfortunately that just wasn’t in the cards this year for California Chrome. I did, however, get to enjoy a fabulous evening out for the exciting horserace (as well as the disappointing Rangers game that followed), so at least I got to celebrate something: The chance to wear one of my favorite sundresses!
I have no shame in admitting that I’ve owned and loved this dress for years, but for some reason I only wear it on the rare occasion when I’m doing something super-summery or preppy (like heading to a summer wedding or actually attending a horserace). But nothing was going to stop me from throwing it on this weekend when both the weather and the occasion couldn’t have been more ideal. Paired with my favorite snakeskin belt, a polished woven clutch and my new favorite sheer lip balm, it was the perfect ensemble for the classic event.
I adore the fit-and-flare shape of this printed dress, and the side pockets are not only chic, but also really convenient. But my favorite part? Definitely the low-V cut in the back, which adds just a touch of sexiness to spice up this sweet ensemble.
What’s your favorite ladylike piece to sport in the summer?
