Off And Running

The Kentucky Derby is right around the corner. The appropriate attire for the Derby is dressy casual, and women most often wear hats and dresses. Many of you know how troublesome hat and dress shopping can be.Yet, in the midst of the uneasiness, you find joy. You began to think about all the time you will spend with friends over finger foods and drinks as you watch the horse race, and then a smile appears on your face. I really like the hat tradition. It reminds me of the Victorian period and the hats the women wore during that time. So, just apply the ideas I provided below, put on a nice dress and add some accessories, and you are good to go.
