Some people define the beginning of summer with a Memorial Day barbecue, or the first official day they can lay out at the pool. For us here in Colorado, it's all about the Denver Derby. Maybe outsiders wouldn't expect Denver to be the host of something going on in Kentucky, but we can all agree the Denver Derby is one of the top events of the year. As with everything at Fifth & Husdon, this year I wanted to find an outfit I could get more use out of later this summer.
This flattering wrap dress, paired with a floppy hat and killer sandals, is the perfect summer mini. Make its debut at the Derby, but follow it up with mimosas on the patio, and even a destination wedding. Also, this baby has pockets so anytime you get a compliment on it you can be sure to throw that tidbit in, as we always seem to do :)
Unexpected, modern and sexy - three adjectives that describe both you and this dress by Auguste The Label. Paired with black shoes and a pop of color hat, this dress can transition from day-to-night seamlessly. We also love this guy for grad parties and girls nights!
If you look up "summer" in the dictionary, I'm sure you'll find a picture of this gingham-print dress right there, front and center. While we picture this for Derby with white, blush, metallic or nude shoes/hats, we also envision it on upcoming beach vacations and sipping margaritas at a Taco Tuesday.
