I’ve been counting down to this Friday for a looong time now… ever since they announced that Outkast would be performing at Forescastle Festival tonight. So if you’re in Louisville and heading to the Waterfront tonight, you may see me – i’ll be the hypest girl there.
Seriously though, if you’re going to Forecastle this weekend – I want to see your pics and post them on here next week. Tag me on Instagram (@louwhatwear) in your pictures and I’ll include them in my wrap up!
Speaking of wrap ups today is the last of my Southern Blog Society Conference posts. I wore a variation of this outfit – swapped out the white skirt for white jeans – to the opening night party at Whiskey Blue. I wanted to stay comfortable after a long car ride and I love the light, airy layers of this outfit. Mostly I love this vest. It may be my best Target purchase ever (good news – i’ve seen a similar version this year in store).
Printed Silk Top: Joie from Nordstrom Rack; Vest: Mossimo at Target (yay still available); Skirt: French Connection from TJ MAXX; Bag: Banana Republic (old, similar here); Horseshoe Style Necklace: Southern Charm Jewelry;Sandals: ZARA (on sale now); Earrings: J.Crew; Sunglasses: Burberry
The Southern Blog Society Conference at the W Hotel in Atlanta was a whirlwind. It started with a champagne pop on Friday at Whiskey Blue and ended with a great pool party. In between we were treated to great speakers: Susan from Ahalogy, Anika from Shopsense, and Amy from Recipe for Press.
The obvious highlight of the weekend was hanging with this gal. Grace is like the long-lost little sister I never had. Seriously, she was the peanut butter to my jelly. Hilarious, sarcastic, crazy smart (she’s studying to be a biomedical engineer – yeah serious shit), down for a good cocktail accompanied by a delicious burger (that happened) and lots of irreverent commentary. To top it all off, she shares my penchant for driving a little too fast, swearing a little too much and talking a little loud. One difference – girl is prepared: homemade road trip snacks, no over-packing or forgetting things. Yeah, I could take some pointers there.
SBS Founders Cathy and Jessica definitely outdid themselves and the event was an amazing example of their hard work. My favorite event of the weekend was the brunch at South City Kitchen hosted by ASOS. Gorgeous setting to grab lunch and gab with new and old blog friends. And the swag bags were ridiculously amazing. I’m still trying to wrap up head around all the goodies.
Here’s a few of my favorite snaps from the weekend captured by the talented Rebekah Carson.
