Reader Submissions: Southern Style – A Hilton Head Wedding

Today’s post comes courtesy of two friends & readers – Megan & Channing. These two have both been spotted on here before and they just got back from a seriously stylish Hilton Head wedding. I couldn’t be happier that they snapped a bunch of pics of the fashions at the seaside affair.


Lots of prints, maxis, bright colors and great accessories. Enjoy!

Reader Submission: Lauren Conrad ‘The Fame Game’ Book Signing in Lexington

I can’t start writing a post without apologizing profusely for all the issues lately with the site. This hosting debacle has been driving me crazy (almost literally) and is insanely frustrating. It’s going on a week now of issues so I have been flooding the support desk… here’s hoping it will be fixed shortly.

Because uploading lots of pics is an exercise in futility right now, I’m popping in with a quick post with some pictures from Lauren Conrad’s book signing for her new book The Fame Game at Joseph Beth Book Sellers in Lexington yesterday sent to me by the always lovely Alex McLean (who happens to be the lady behind the Keeneland Gift Shop – check out the cute stuff she picks out here).

Here’s what Alex said about LC and the event:

  • *There were about 300 people waiting in line to meet Lauren Conrad and have their book(s) signed.
  • *There were about 50 VIPs that got to go first, but it was a constant and steady crowd of mostly young adult females.
  • *She was wearing a fabulous denim like blazer and a LBD….the one thing I noticed was that she had the cat-eyes eyeliner on her top lid (which I love hehe)
  • *She was very interested in Lexington, Bourbon country, and of course Horse Country. She was inquisitive about the Derby and Derby fashion.

“She was awesome to meet and very genuine. I talked to her for a while about Derby style, Derby hats, and how fascinated she is by the fashion of the Kentucky Derby. It was a great time.”

Alex and her sister-in-law Kate got some great shots of my favorite Laguna Beach alum and I love their proud signed book pics.

p.s. – How amazing is Lauren Conrad’s hair? The amount of envy I have for it cannot be contained in this post.

Alex waiting to get her book signed! p.s. - how cute is her lace top?

Love this & thank you Alex for the submission! USA

Reader Submission: Sparkling in Nashville

Today’s post is a reader submission courtesy of my blogging bestie Quinn at Wedding Row Kentucky. I’ve been holding onto these pics for a little while, waiting to post them on a day when I needed a little sparkle. I figured today would be a perfect way to kick off December, the unofficial month of sparkling.


Quinn (far left) – Sequin Jacket – Calypso (not available anymore, but this fancy sequin top is! just wish it wasn’t so pricey! Or try this one from ASOS. Super Cute & On Sale!)

Molly (far right) – Chevron Sweater: Collections

There’s so much I love in these pictures – sparkly sequins, fur vests and fun, blousy basics. Not to mention Quinn’s red jeans, the chevron sweater and some statement jewelry all around. All perfect for a night out honky tonking in Nashville. (p.s. – if you’re one of the other fab ladies in these pics, feel free to comment where your items are from & i’ll update the post!)

Reader Submission and Giveaway!: The Right Color

UPDATE: Winner winner chicken dinner! The winner of the Apricot Lane Scarf of their choice is Jenny Finch! I’ll be in touch soon with all the details! Thanks to everyone who entered.

Today’s post is courtesy of the lovely Alex M. (@amclean5 – she also runs the Keeneland Gift Shop which is full of goodies) and features some fun gameday looks. Sometimes a plain ole team t-shirt does the trick and sometimes it just won’t do. Tailgaiting on a beautiful day calls for a fall ‘fit in your team colors. For some teams, this is a piece of cake. When your team is a standard color you can usually throw together a look pretty easily but when your team has a color outside the realm of normal fashion or as in Cats fans case, a seriously bright version of blue, it can be a little more difficult to find “the right color.”

Alex and her friends did a great job of incorporating the right color into their game day looks. And with the UK vs UT game coming up (Teddi – send me some orange game day pics!), I thought it would be a good time to share so you can get some inspiration on looking stylish while still supporting the Cats.

AND… since we know “the right color” depends on who you’re rooting for, I’ve got the perfect giveaway for Cards & Cats fans (or people who like red & black or white & blue!). Apricot Lane is giving one lucky Lou What Wear reader a red & black or white & blue infinity scarf for you, just in time for basketball season. All the rules & details are below.

Danon –  Sweater: NY & Co., Jeans: Forever 21, Boots: (not pictured) Steve Madden, Sunnies: Ray Bans, Watch; Fossil, Purse: Coach

My favorite part of these looks is that none of them look overdone or too fancy. Casual, comfy and cute while cheering on the cats!
