Shopping: Rainy Day Deals & Reading

I think it has been raining since the moment I got back in town. Blech.

While we all wait for it to clear up {will it ever clear up?} here’s some local deals to beat your rainy day blues.

Boutique Blow Out Sale: If you’re like me, your ears perk up when you hear about the semi-annual local boutique blow-out sale. Blink, Circe & Clodhoppers are clearing out their sale racks to make room for their fun {and bright} Spring Arrivals. If you haven’t been before, this sale is no joke so plan on getting there early if you want to snag the good stuff before it’s gone.
The sale starts at 9am at Semonin Square (formerly Karen of Course) – 4903 Browsboro Rd (Highway 22).

Collections at Westport Village –  Starting tomorrow (Friday, Jan. 27), Collections will be offering 15% off STOREWIDE. The sale lasts through the weekend, so head on in (or tell your hubby or bf) and grab something.

Apricot Lane – While you’re at Westport Village, stop in and check out their $20, $30, $40 and $50 racks. You’ll be sure to find something that fits your fancy – from coats to tops and accessories.

And if you can’t drag yourself out in the rain, cozy up at your computer and check out some of my favorite local blogs.

The Chic Sheet – If you’re looking for some serious fashion, Miranda’s blog is for you. She has a knack for sharing some stunning fashion spreads that you wouldn’t get a chance to see unless you subscribed to every international Vogue published. Mix that in with her own fierce style and you’ve got a way to lose a couple hours of your life.

YepIndeed – Graylin shares a little bit of everything on yepindeed – from shopping finds to events, music, home and everything in between. She also recently did a guest post on my other blog, secondary embarrassment (p.s. – if you watch the bachelor & find yourself cringing through it, check out SE – I write recaps every Tuesday). Her blog is a breath of fresh air always filled with something new.

How cute is this room?

Wedding Row Kentucky – You all already know how much I heart Quinn at WRK. If you’re getting married, dreaming of getting married or just love all things weddings – check out her site for some of the best local info. (p.s. – Quinn & I are working on a big, fun feature in the next coming weeks and I cannot wait to share it!)

Thursdays – This blog, run from both Louisville & Brooklyn, is filled with recipes, crafts and other amazingness from Colleen and Stephania. If you’re into aspirational living like I am, you’ll want to check this out and start “pinning” away. I’ve added quite a few things to my Pinterest {p.s. – you can follow me here} board that, most likely, won’t be completed but I’ve got big dreams that I’ll finally find the time.

And since I’m always trying to improve Lou What Wear, if you have any tips on how to make things better, what you’d like to see more of (or less of) and what kinds of links you like – please let me know!
