Details. Dressing For the In-Between

 

If you are anything like me, then you truly enjoy the transitional period that comes between the sweltering summer months and fall. The temperature cools at night, yet the days are still filled with sunshine and warmth. For a style maven, this time also provides a unique opportunity to wear pieces from both seasons.

Yellow Toes. Some Serious Slingback

Zara Yellow Flats

It’s a new season, which means there is a new excuse to be completely enamored with a new trend in the footwear department.

Take one step forward and enter the slingback into the conversation.

With modern styling, and interesting colors and adornments, this shoe is not reserved solely for older style mavens anymore. Dior featured a bow version of the slingback in its spring show and Moschino made a statement with the an electric red, stiletto version they debuted in their spring offering. Each proving that a pair of slingback shoes can be a fresh statement for any outfit.

Wear your own set of slingbacks as a comfortable pair of flats, or add another staple to your collection of heels with the elevated versions. Either way, the slingback shoe is THE piece of footwear to own this season.

WIW. Forecastle Festival Style

 

 

This new section of my blog, dutifully titled What I Wore will simply highlight a look I recently wore that I deemed worthy enough to share on The Chic Street.

There will be no briefing on the latest trend, or detailed account of why I styled the ensemble in such a manner (unless I am feeling particularly frisky that day).

Keeping it simple.

Foodie Friday. Red Herring

 

 

Since I currently live in the Butchertown neighborhood of Louisville, I often keep a close eye out for restaurants that open in the areas close to where I reside. One such area that gets a lot of my attention is the Clifton one. This part of Louisville is known for it’s long-standing culinary presence, and recently Red Herring was added to Clifton’s roster of must-visit restaurants.

Red Herring opened in May of this year in the historic Hilltop Theater on Frankfort Avenue. It serves 100 of the most influential classic cocktails, inspired by award-winning bartender Clay Livingston, along with house-crafted recipes, adult milkshakes, artisanal wines and even regional craft beers. With a menu that caters to all, the establishment’s dishes are created by chef Jacob Coronado, and meant to complement the drinks Red Herring offers.

Food that can be eaten by hand alongside my favorite cocktail?

I’ll definitely raise a glass to that!

 

My Style. Enamored with Embroidery

 

There are times when a trend is simply so beautiful that I happily embrace it without a second thought. However, sometimes my adoration for a trend reaches such a fervor, and I grab onto it so tightly that within a few, short weeks my closet is bursting at the seams with it.

(Cue the chorus from my favorite Cardigans’ track, Love Fool: Love me, love me. Say that you love me.)
