Style Spotting: NuLu Festival 2014

Clearly I am still getting caught up after a week away. Crazy how a few days can through off your whole schedule. Moving on…

The last weekend in September has become one I circle on my calendar thanks to NuLu Festival. Started as a small neighborhood festival, it’s evolved into a big giant party that takes up about three blocks of East Market Street and is jam packed with vendors, delicious food, beer (on beer on beer), cocktails, music and more.

Normally, I like to go in the late afternoon to grab a few beers, stroll around and enjoy some of the bands but this year I had to go to a work event that night so I stopped by early. Thankfully there were doughnuts (Louisville peeps – make sure to check out Hi-Five Doughnuts – they let you build your own doughnut –  so crazy good), some good shopping and catching up with some folks I hadn’t seen in a while.

Better yet, there were tons of fashionable faces walking around as well. It’s been a while since I’ve done any style spotting so I snapped a few pics of some  locals to share with you all. The funny thing is that even though this was only about 10 days ago, in weather terms, it seems like an entirely different season. I think it might have been the last truly summer-y weekend of the year. So even though we’re full steam ahead into fall, I’m loving all the stylish shorts & sandals in this post.

Thanks to all the guys and gals that let me snap their pic, if you see your face (or know some one I snapped) let me know your name in the comments and I’ll update!

Alumnious Events was there with their decked-out Airstream serving drinks, cooling people down and showing all the college football games. The gals of Hi-Five Doughnuts

 By far the most stylish mother/daughter duo I’ve seen. There’s nothing I’m not obsessed with in this picture but I may need to be a big time copy cat and get Kristen’s sunglasses ASAP. My buds Alex & CaitlinGotta love a guy in polka dots. And how cute are their glasses?Erin – So simple, summery and chic. Now I’m on the hunt for these scalloped polka dot shorts. Printed and a little preppy. Love those salmon sperry’s.

 

Inspiration + Style Spotting: NYFW S/S 2015

This is always one of my favorite posts to work on. As much as I wish I could be one of the uber-fashionable gals attending show after show at Lincoln Center, my life just isn’t that fab (I blame it on work and kids but we all know that it’s way more than just that).

Instead I watch from the sidelines (read: the internet) and use the New York Fashion Week outdoor runway, that amazing collection of street style as inspiration for more exciting dressing decisions. This year is no different, I’m once-again in sartorial awe of how these super chic gals make it look so effortless. I certainly won’t be using these for exact replications, not very practical for my every day life (i’m guessing you’re in the same boat) but it’s a great way to get some high-level inspiration.

Here’s a handful of my favorites from Fashion Week (so far). Enjoy!

Admittedly today’s post is less of a style spotting and more of a fun round-up of Forecastle Festival shenanigans. I only made it to the Waterfront on Friday and totally forgot my camera but thanks to some friends & readers, I’ve got a look at some of the good times (and good outfits) that went down this weekend.
