Kentucky Derby, Charlotte Style

 
Let’s talk about the Kentucky Derby. The hats, dresses, shoes and the status. It all seems like so much fun. So let’s take a look at what the Kentucky Derby fashion scene is all about

Personally my favorite is Krysten Ritter’s floral and lace trimmed dress. Her hat is just big enough and nice compliment to the dress itself and the darker navy shoes.

So after looking at all these beautiful hats and dresses, I need help deciding what to wear to Queens Cup her in Charlotte. Our lovely version of the Kentucky Derby. My work purchased a tent, will provide food and beverages and of course always a good time. So since I already have a tulle skirt and try to wear it every chance I get here a few options I was thinking about for Queens Cup.

I am fan of blushes and neutrals, especially for the Spring so that top just speaks to me. Those earrings are a bit out of my normal routine. I am a studs kind of girl but LOVE a good statement necklace. However with the floral going on I know it best to avoid a necklace with this ensemble. The next look is quite similar, let’s be honest almost identical. What can I say? I know what I like.

So what are your thoughts? Probably that I am ridiculous and basically just need to pick a shirt and get over myself? Well I might, but I like opinions too.
 

Plaid + Pearls

 
My family is more of the jeans and sweater type and I am more of the girlier and the dressier the better. So when it came time to pick out an outfit for Christmas Eve with my family I decided to just go with what I wanted. I took a cue from Atlantic-Pacific and went with plaid, pearls and tulle! To my surprise my little cousin like my skirt so much she wants one of her own.

So in the spirit of the upcoming holidays and my love for tulle skirts here are some ideas for how I may be styling my skirt.
 
 
There is something to be said about plaid, pearls and tulle! I think this might be the winning combo for me this year but a few more outfit inspirations incase I change my mind.

So I must say I love the plaid option and a cozy sweater with a serious sparkled out necklace option the most. Which is your favorite? any other holiday outfit ideas involving a tulle skirt?
