Off to the Races!

May is here, and that means it’s time for everyone’s favorite preppy pastime:  horse racing!  After all, is it really a sport if you can’t watch it while drinking a mint julep and wearing a fancy hat?  Whether you’re heading to Gold Cup this weekend, watching the Kentucky Derby at a posh viewing party, or getting ready for Preakness in a few weeks, you’re going need a new frock to stand out amongst the well-dressed masses.  Take a cue from Georgetown’s Sloan or Baltimore’s Sarah and check out their picks for each of our favorite spring dress trends!

Crisp white: You can’t go wrong with classic white—just make sure not to get too close to the guy stumbling around with his glass of bourbon!

Sloan is wearing: Shoshanna, Lace Nyla Sheath in White, $418. Available at Urban Chic Georgetown. Sarah is wearing: Joie, Aragon Dress in Porcelain, $318. Available at Urban Chic Baltimore.
