Fancy Dresses: Weddings + Oaks + Derby Inspiration

It's almost Derby time! 

I am so excited to be going to Derby again this year - it such such a fun event. We went in 2012, and to Oaks in 2013. Most people wear pink on Oaks, but it's not required.

Derby 2012 + Oaks 2013

I'm assuming most of you aren't going to Derby, but perhaps there are races in your city, or Derby parties - or maybe you just wanna wear a pretty dress. What with all the weddings and all the other fancy events this time of year, why not? It's fun to get dressed up sometimes!

Seriously though - Number 1 makes my heart happy - I need this in my life right? It's sold out in my size :( and I don't have any events to wear it to.. but, I need it. It's so pretty!
