Dapper Day Inspiration: Yellow Flowers

Posted by

Dapper Day Inspiration: YellowDapper Day and derby season are right around the corner and we couldn't be more excited!

This week our inspiration is the bright yellow of spring flowers!

We began with a pale yellow checkered vintage dress (picnic lunch anyone?) and we paired that with a pair of low heeled wedges that will be comfortable for walking around the horse track or the happiest place on earth.

We recommend a fun vintage high pony tail with this look so that our feathered Abbie fascinator can wrap around like a fashionable scrunchie!

We polished the look off with some little yellow earrings and an adorable straw purse with a bumblebee and sunflower.

Hope you enjoyed this style!
