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.)

Details. Give Me All the Buttons

 

Mango Lace Top \ Madewell Button Denim (similar here)

It should come as no surprise that denim regularly gets a makeover. I still usually gravitate towards a simple, cropped skinny jean, but I have to admit that I am starting to have a wandering eye.

What has caught my attention?

Button-front denim.

Buttons can make a real statement on a pair of jeans, denim skirt or even a jean jumper. Keep the styling simple by pairing it with a basic tee, or add this season’s most sought after and versatile textile: lace. Just keep in mind that with details like this though, no one will be looking at your topper.

Shoulder Play. What Comes Next?

 

Yes, my style mavens, the off-the-shoulder trend is played out officially over.

However, I am not here to tell you to be a slave to fashion and switch your closet out every time a new trend emerges or dissolves. Instead, I am simply here to make you aware of the various ways one can show off their shoulders without having to wear the same strapless silhouette this season.
