Place your Bet

The Run for the Roses, also fondly known as the greatest two minutes in sports, is fast approaching. If you have yet to pick a clutch to accompany your bet placing, here are a few picks you can go pick up today at Target or Saks, yes, hi-lo choices. Also, a few tips if at the beautiful grounds:

Stock Up on Extra Sun Coverage
For a full day in the sun, we’re firm believer in the necessity of sunscreen. Most likely, your face will be covered by the brim of a hat, but it’s important to not forget sunscreen on your shoulders and arms.  At local Walgreen’s, La Roche-Posay Anthelios Clear Skin SPF 60, $20.

Embrace a Power Brow
We love a strong brow with a hat. It really anchors the face for all of the interest that goes above the forehead.  Watch,

Weatherproof Your Beauty Look
May weather can be unpredictable! The fail-safe solution for both climate and dress codes alike is found in a lightweight foundation (for fresh skin) and waterproof mascara (for streak-proof lashes), but chooses to skip strong lip and eye statements. This is an afternoon springtime event, natural makeup feels most appropriate.

Try a New Shade of Nail Polish
For an added pop of color, we recommend trying a bold pedicure. Canary yellow, a spring trend, spreads fun and cheer. Bonus points for animal lovers if the polish is vegan, our favorite is  Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics.

Lean Into Hat Hair
“The nice thing about wearing a hat is that your hair is covered,” says Burris, who uses her accessories as an opportunity to extend a blowout with dry shampoo. She can usually be found with her own blonde lengths worn loose, but, she says, “If you’re going to wear your hair up, I suggest something low toward the nape of the neck,” in order to allow a statement hat to have its moment.
