Style Spotting + Events: Forecastle Festival 2014

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.

If you were at Forecastle and want to add your pics to this round-up, just send ‘em over to me at

Style Spotting: Julie * Summer White Lace

How much do you love a great white dress?

A lot, right?

The problem is there aren’t many places you can wear them in the summer months, at least for me, because most of the outdoor occasions that would warrant one are weddings. And we all know you don’t wear white to weddings (or rehearsal dinners for that matter).

So when I spotted Julie in this simple white lace number at a seriously lovely baby shower she hosted, I had to get her to pose for some pictures. And while I might add a bright, bold necklace – I dig how she kept it simple adding delicate, silver jewelry (side note: how gorgeous is that sapphire ring?) and a tiny pop of color with pink earrings (that of course, matched her nail polish). The whole thing just personifies southern summer for me.

Oh and if you’re in town and just NEED to have this dress, Julie found it at Colonial Designs which is one of the stores participating in the big summer sidewalk sale this week. Might be marked way down!

Style Spotting + Favorite Things: It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year! Kentucky Oaks and Derby 140

After a couple years of less than stellar weather, Mother Nature smiled on Kentucky Derby 140 for what was a beautiful day at the track. I spent the day with friends while keeping track of everyone’s beautiful looks via instagram and facebook.

Putting together this post is always a favorite for me because I love seeing what everyone wore to the Race for the Roses. Lots of color, lots of amazing hats and fascinators, lots and lots of gorgeous dresses. If there’s one thing Louisville ladies know how to do, it’s how to bring it for Derby.

If you’ve had Derby on your bucket list for a while, I suggest you start planning on attending next year now (and book mark this post on what to wear). You won’t regret it. Seriously, you won’t.
