Events + Yay It’s a Giveaway: Talking Runway for the Roses with Gunnar Deatherage

The weather may not agree but it’s officially Derby season around here. Leading up to the big race, local gals have the chance to check out the latest fashion at a number of local fashion events. One of the most anticipated is NFocus Magazine’s Runway for the Roses.

The event is a stand-out based on the unique perspective of the magazine’s Creative Director Gunnar Deatherage. You may recognize Deatherage from his time on Project Runway, where he presented at Lincoln Center during Fashion Week. He’s now back in Louisville, putting his high-fashion touch on the magazine and its events.  In between preparing for the big runway show on April 2nd, Deatherage took some times to talk Derby, Louisville favorites and his inspiration with me.

Last but not least, NFocus is generously giving two General Admission tickets away to one lucky Lou What Wear reader. So check out Gunnar’s favorites and then make sure to enter for two seats!

Outfit Post + Yay! It’s a Giveaway: Always Striped + Pink Blush Maternity

You all knew that a little (okay not so little) baby bump wasn’t going to stop me from wearing stripes. It’s a problem. One that hasn’t stopped since having to add a few maternity basics to the wardrobe.

Thankfully that’s where Pink Blush Maternity stepped in to save me. This t-shirt has been my weekend saving grace. Comfy, long enough (!!!!) and covered in stripes – all of which are helpful when running errands and trying to keep my life in order. I know everyone tries to avoid maternity clothes as long as possible but at some point we all succumb. Some of us are not blessed with the body that looks like a small basketball was perfectly placed under their shirt – so there comes a day when your basics are cutting it anymore and you’re just not willing to stretch out another perfectly good shirt. I’m already planning on stocking up on a few more basics from Pink Blush to get me through these last couple weeks. They’ve also got some great dress options now that the weather is actually allowing us to ditch pants and tights. And since I personally know a good handful of other soon-to-be-mama’s, I was extra excited when they offered up a $25 gift card to one reader.

Speaking of other mom’s, I teamed up with some stylish ones for today’s post – although all of them are (enviably) in a different cute, striped tee. It’s the perfect go-to when you’re trying to look good while still trying to get out the door in a reasonable amount of time (increasingly difficult for me), accomplish a bunch of errands while keeping track of a little tyke but still wanting to look put together and polished.  I love discovering that a blogger whose style I love has kiddos so when Beth {Beth Animal Print} approached me about a little link-up, I had to jump right in – even if I was a little gun shy about being next to all these MILF’s while looking less than stellar myself. Definitely check out the other gals blogs for some inspiration – I know I’ll be copying more than a handful of their ‘fits this summer.

All the details on the giveaway are below!

 Stripe Tee: c/o Pink Blush Maternity; Sweater: H&M; Jeans: James Jeans; Yellow Sneakers: Superga; Necklace: Forever 21

Yay! It’s a Giveaway + Outfit Details: Final Fall Moments

Even though winter doesn’t officially start for a few days it certainly seems to have settled in for good. Today’s outfit is back from Thanksgiving week when winter the snow and cold hadn’t taken over. I wore this dress to a fun fall wedding and then broke it out again during the holiday weekend. It’s been in heavy rotation because it’s so easy to throw on and dress up or down (blazer for work, big knit cardigan for errands) and the colors in the print match just about everything. I’ve already paired it with tights for these colder temps.

Side note: I just realized I never picked the winner for the Fringe & Lace giveaway. Sorry! So big congrats to Shira R. who is the lucky lady to get to do some Facebook sale shopping! To make up for it, I’ve giving away something else fun today. The lovely gals at Dress & Dwell gave me the necklace I’m sporting in today’s post (and in real life today) stacked on top and one lucky lady can win one for herself by entering below.
