Outfit Post: Forecastle ‘fit

Jul 21, 2014

Before I launch into my Forescastle experience, if you were there – send me your pics! I’m working on a recap and would love to see everyone’s pics. Tag me on instagram (@louwhatwear) or email them to me – danielle @ and you could see your smiling face up on here later this week!

It may not be Coachella, Lolapalooza or Hang Out Fest but Louisville’s Forecastle Festival is pretty legit (don’t take my word for it, Rolling Stone agrees). We sat out last year but when I saw that Outkast was headlining this year – I purchase my tickets immediately.

My love for Outkast ranks right up there with my love for Kentucky Basketball, Mean Girls and Bingo (yup – i love all of those things A LOT, I’m a weird bird) so Friday night’s concert was something of a religious experience for me. It was also our friend’s birthday so we assembled a fun crew to head down to the waterfront and enjoy all things Forecastle. Which for us meant forgetting all about acting age appropriate (thank god for babysitters).

The weather this year was a combo of rainy and chilly – not quite ideal for a summer festival. That being said, I was staying strong with my choice of cut-off shorts  (remember, I said I threw caution to the wind when it came to dressing/acting/being age appropriate – it was Outkast after all) and paired them with this jacket that I scored on major sale last week. When I bought I definitely didn’t think I’d get to use it so soon but it was pretty clutch. It ended up working out perfectly though because it made my denim cut-off choice feel a little more grown-up and clean. I also decided to be pretty cliche and do a little headband braid – it was a festival after all. Feel free to judge.

We snapped this pics in a hurry before heading down there and my pal Caitlin’s lab Maddy just couldn’t help but get in on the action. She may be starting her own blog soon. Stay tuned.

All in all, the show was amazing and we had way too much fun for our own good (hangover + two month old = horrible morning). I may still be a tiny bit sad that they cut my most favorite song short but I’ll get over it … eventually.

 Field Jacket: J.Crew; Denim Cut-Off Shorts: Urban Outfitters (I went a size up in these so that they were a bit looser and longer than the ‘cheeky’ name suggests); Tee: Urban Outfitters; Moccasins (no dirty festie feet for me thank you very much): Minnetonka; Belt: J.Crew (so old)
Necklaces – Small lowercase ‘d’: Jewelmint; @louwhatwear Name Plate: c/o TAudrey; Gold Bar: c/o Gorjana & Griffin

I’m pretty obsessed with these dainty gold necklaces that we got at the SBS Conference last week. I’ve wanted one with the blog moniker on it for a while but thought it might be silly to splurge on one so getting this TAudry one as a gift was perfect. Her site is full of simple personalized pieces and as a Miami native, I can’t help but love her ‘Miss Miami’ section. I would love to do one of these with my kiddos birthdays too but may need this ‘305’ one first. These make the perfect wedding/new baby/graduation gift and she even has a sorority section for the college gals in your life. Beware friends, you will probably be getting this as a {birthday, engagement, baby} gift in the near future.
