Spring is in the air which means a whole new season of outdoor parties. And, in Wilmington, Delaware, that equals equestrian events – lots of them! First up is the Winterthur Point-to-Point Steeplechase, quickly followed by the Willowdale Steeplechase just down the road, and of course the Radnor Hunt. The season winds down with the world-famous Devon Horse Show, which I first began attending at age 10 (and is still my personal favorite).
Of course, every event requires a spunky new dress (somehow, my husband still does not understand this, even after all of these years!). In the past, I have sported everything from pink and lime green daisies, to shocking pink cutwork, to enormous polka dots. But, as I was searching this year, I stumbled on something a bit more conservative — the perfect lace shift dress from ETCYY.
This dress is oh-so-pretty with wide bands of lace at the neck and hem. The detailing is just lovely. Although there’s no look-at-me print or contrasting color, the wide lace adds just the right amount of va-va-voom, to keep it from appearing too plain.
This shift dress is available in sizes Small- X-Large (pay close attention to the sizing and corresponding measurements when ordering). And, the fit is comfortably loose. This is a real necessity, because outdoor events can be hot, hot, hot. A loose dress such as this one is breezy and will keep you cool and comfortable all day.
The dress can be worn alone, or with a cute cardigan. In fact, I always take a cardigan, for outdoor events, even if the weatherman predicts 90 degree temps. If the weather suddenly turns cooler (or if you stay until the evening festivities) a cardigan tossed over a sleeveless dress is incredibly practical.
This dress retails for $17.99 – $21.99 on Amazon. And, although I choose crisp navy blue, it’s also available in classic black or pure white.
Now, I am ready for my favorite spring events. Tally-ho!
