Outfit Post: Flare Up

I’m facing some serious writers block today. Sometimes I can ramble for paragraphs on end but today I’ve got nothing. Nothing but one of my favorite combos: stripes + flares.

These flares have been on serious repeat since I picked them up. Lately I’ve been gravitating to simpler looks and there’s no shortage of simple, unique options at Madewell which is why I’ve already spent way too long this morning combing through their summer sale (get an extra 30% off).

So rather than blabber on, I’m going to get back to my to-do list (and a little online shopping). To save you all some time, I’ve rounded up some of my favorites from the sale below.

Promise to kick the writers block for some Secondary Embarrassment later this afternoon.

Outfit Post: Just the Basics

So you’ve probably noticed that things look a little different around here. The talented (and very patient) Whitney Vass  of Heart + Arrow Designs helped refresh the site and give Lou What Wear a whole new look. What do you think?! I’m still working out some of the kinks from organizing all the content but I’m hoping this new layout makes it easier to find everything. I’m also hoping to introduce some more locally focused content to the site so stay tuned for that.

If you just type in louwhatwear.com – you’ll notice that you go to a new website format. I’m still working on figuring out how I want to structure everything there (wish I was a better plan ahead type gal but i’m just not), so you may see some changes there. But keeping the blog format was really important to me, so you’ll be able to access it by either clicking through to the blog area or just bookmarking this link .

Bear with me while I get everything figured out and if you have any feedback, thoughts, suggestions – let me know. I definitely want to hear what you all think.

Real quick on the outfit… this stripe top is a new favorite. It is a tiny bit cropped which is a bit frightening at times (I left bare midriff back in 1996 where it belongs for me) but paired with slightly high-waisted options, it’s just right. I’ve worn it with skirts (like when I wore it with this white lace one), jeans, under blazers, by itself… I could go on. And did I mention I’ve only owned it for like two weeks. Clearly I’m obsessed. The rest of the goodies here are old favorites which is what this top is going to be in a few months.
