“There’s nothing we love more than a well placed bow” 🎀 — Kate Spade

I am happy to say my search for the perfect dress to wear for Derby is now complete!  I found this dress on the grand opening day at the new Kate Spade outlet store in Nashville.

It was calling my name as soon as I saw it, but was discouraged about sizing because it looked huge! Needless to say, we walked around the mall and I couldn’t get it out of my head. I tried it on and it fit perfectly. Not sure what kind of sale they are having now, but they did have 40% off them and an additional 20% so it was kind of a no brainer. 

Kate Spade is the go to place for dresses of any occasion and happy to say this dress runs TTS which I am in a size 0. I love the little bow detail in the back and if you are a sucker for a dress with pockets, this is the dress for you!     

This hat was done by MSL Monograms (hereand might I add that it is the perfect hat for derby! I am so in love with the white bow and with my initials in pink to really complete this look! I have had several other items made from her and everything is made with a great turn around time and excellent quality. This website is a must if you are in need of anything from monogrammed decals to hats to shirts.


So this clutch is everything and MORE! Found this beauty at Francesca’s the other night and had to have this with my dress. The colors are so bright and vibrant and add the perfect touch to my dress. I went to a couple of these stores and noticed that this was not in every store and they do not carry it online. So if you have a moment I would definitely run down there to get this. Plus, they have 30% off on bags right now. Talk about winning!!
