Sunny Day Street Style

                               
              Shop: Pants | Handbag | Flats | Vest | Blouse | Sunglasses | Nail Polish | Earrings 

Nothing like a sunny day when it has been cold and cloudy. Took the opportunity to soak up some rays yesterday with my boyfriend and his good friend that is in town from Australia. I chose a chic but comfortable look for exploring an area of town called the Highlands here in Louisville Kentucky. We also stopped for coffee at Quills, which is one of my favorite coffee shops in town. I paired black skinny jeans with one of my favorite light and flowy tunics, and a salt and pepper vest to give it a little more texture. I finished the look with purple aviator sunnies, black flats and my favorite purse.

Colorful Transition Outfit

A bold color always makes a statement! Color is great for the Spring season, so I added lots of it to this transition outfit. All through the calendar says it’s Spring we all know that does not mean the temperature says it is. So when it is cold in the morning and warmer in the afternoon I like to opt for layers like I did below.

I paired a cream sweater dress (similar here) with a bright fuchsia cardigan. I added further color to the outfit by choosing navy leggings, c/o Comm-Ci , a company that specializes in chic, comfortable, well fitting leggings. Then accessorized with fun tassel earrings that screams I’M CRAZY FOR COLOR!! 🙂 I finished the outfit with tan booties, my favorite handbag, and a watch to match.

What is you favorite way to add color to an outfit?

American Craft Distilling Tasting Series Part 2 with The Whisky Chicks

                                        
                                         Shop: Leggings | Sweater | Boots | Vest | Lipstick 

Part 2 of the American Craft Distilling Tasting Series organized and executed by the Whisky Chicks was another sold out event (read about part 1 here). The Whiskey Chicks organize functions centered around educating women and men about the delicacies of whiskey and provide a social atmosphere to do so.
Westport Whiskey & Wine was the venue for part 1 & 2 of the tasting series. Their tasting room is spectacular, great for events and date nights. The shop prides itself on having hard to fine whiskey, wine, beer and spirits. If you are in the Louisville area I would suggest you check it out. 

In part 2 of the American Craft Distilling Tasting Series participants experienced six different whiskeys, which are listed below. 
Kentucky Artisan Distillery is the home of Jefferson’s Bourbon, Whiskey Row Bourbon, and Highspire Rye. This distillery provides a place for entrepreneurs to learn the craft of spirit production. 
The Whiskey’s of the night:

100% rye whiskey that is aged for 6 months in California oak wine barrels. With a taste of vanilla and oak, Highspire is 80 proof and 40% ABV.
A small batch bourbon made from four different bourbon recipes all of different ages. This bourbon is anywhere from 90-98 proof (45-49% ABV).
A blended bourbon of 3-4 different brands of region’s best bourbons. House brand of Kentucky Artisan Distillery. An 88 proof bourbon with a bit of spice (44% ABV).
Calumet Farm Bourbon
Bourbon made up of a mash of corn, rye and malted barley. Calumet Farm Bourbon is 86 proof with tastes of butterscotch, oak and little hints of brown sugar and white pepper  (43% AVB).

Rivulet Pecan Liqueur 
A small batch distilled pecan American brandy that is 60 proof.  With it sweet and nutty finish, this liqueur is a great after dinner drink (30% ABV).

Ballotin Original Chocolate
If you are a chocolate lover? You will love the mix of chocolate and whiskey in the Ballotin Original Chocolate. This 60 proof rich chocolatey fudge whiskey with hints of vanilla and oak is great to drink straight or mixed in a cocktail. (30% ABV)

Blushing
