Outfit Post: Tan + Neon

A while back, I spent a entire month trying to recreate looks I loved from Pinterest with items in my closet already (here’s an example). #NoNewThings

Well today’s post is getting me back in the swing of things. I really want to make better use of the things I already own and love. And now that things are fitting a little better (not there yet), it’s easier to mix and match. When I saw this post from Julia {Gal Meets Glam} a few weeks back, I knew I could recreate it once the temperatures dropped a little (but make no mistake there was no way I was recreating her bad ass hair and make-up skills). Yesterday was a little cooler (at least in the morning, totally didn’t pay attention when they said it would warm up by mid-day), so I decided to give it a go. Also, I woke up late and didn’t want to think about putting together an outfit. I’m lazy like that.

So sorry for an outfit of old favorites but at least the accessories are new. These navy booties are going to be in heavy rotation this fall. And as much as I need structure when it comes to bags, I always forego the pockets and organization for a carry-all and this oversized one is pretty perfect. The good part is that it comes with a pouch to hold all the little things that can descend into the abyss of a big bag. So clutch (pun intended. sorry for being a nerd).

Yellow Lace Skirt: Forever 21, same skirt different color here; love this fuller yellow version (seen here and here); Sweater: J.Crew; Navy ‘Romy’ Booties: c/o Sole Society; Monogram Necklace: Old, similar here; Oversize ‘Capri’ Tote: c/o Sole Society

Thanks Hayley for the pics!

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!

Louisville: September Events & Sales

Phew, this week has been a doozy. Today would be when I normally would throw in a fitness post but I’m behind on everything – including getting to the gym and taking pictures – so I’m going to sneak it in next week.

I’m planning on using this weekend to catch up on life (with a little work mixed in) and hopefully be back on my A-game come Monday. Wish me luck. Until then, I’m hitting the reset button.

And while we’re on the subject of tomorrows, there’s a few fun events coming up, including one that I’m co-hosting, that you may want to check out. All the details below and here.

Oh and if you’re coming to the Blink event next week (hope you are!) make sure to get there early. The swag bags are no joke. Seriously, you’re gonna want one.

Also, if you have a Louisville-area event, sale or other random fun thing you’d like to share send it over to danielle@louwhatwear.com. I’ll make sure to add it to the ‘louisville events‘ page.
