With all of this crisp, beautiful weather we have been blessed to have this past week; it is apparent that Fall is right around the corner and the Blink girls are ready!! What Fall trends are you looking forward to?? We are currently craving cobalt and lucky for us, it is a HUGE color for Fall!!
Summer is one of our favorite times of the year! There’s nothing like relaxing by the pool with the sun beaming down, sipping on a fruity cocktail (or two)… and just enjoying the simple things in life. Here are a few of our “Summer Fun Essentials” that we feel every Blink girl should have!
Come by and see us Monday-Saturday from 10-6 for your Summer fun essentials!! Otherwise, you can find us by the pool ;-)
The Blink Girls
Here at Blink we LOVE holidays and Independence Day is no exception! We plan on spending the weekend surrounded by friends and family; enjoying some beautiful weather, fireworks, laughter and great food! Whether you are looking for a little inspiration with your wardrobe, some sweet treats, or decor, here are a few easy ideas that might add a little flare to your 4th!!
We hope you enjoy and have a wonderful 4th of July!!
The Blink Girls
Summertime is the perfect opportunity to wear casual tanks. Since we are all about high-quality staples at Blink, we have a wide selection of luxurious Vince tanks. Of course, the look can get a little stale if only paired with shorts and accessories; therefore, we have pulled together a couple new ways to wear this hot weather item so y’all can look as stylish as possible!
I don’t know about the rest of you ladies, but we at Blink are ready to swap our winter wardrobes for more lightweight options. (Adios, leggings and sweaters. Hello, shorts and tanks!) Our resort and spring deliveries are full of adorable pieces…and we are going crazy over the versatile fit and flare dresses.

Keep in mind, spring is the perfect time to reinvent your look…and who doesn’t want a little flair in their wardrobe? ;)
If you’ve picked up any fashion magazines lately, you may have noticed Louisville’s very own Jennifer Lawrence on the cover of September’s Vogue!
The 23 year-old starlet looks sensational gracing the pages of the most revered publication in the fashion industry. Plus, the interview reveals what all of Kentucky already knew… Jennifer Lawrence is sharp-witted and wonderfully quirky.
Obviously Vogue editors know how to dress a celebrity, but if we could style J.Law’s cover look we would outfit her in our new Shoshanna dresses.
Check out our top three looks and let us know… which one is your favorite?
It doesn’t start till September 23rd, but how can you not be pumped for the final season premier of How I Met Your Mother? It should be really interesting since the remaining 24 episodes will revolve entirely around Robin and Barney’s wedding weekend.
We can’t get enough of the cool and chic style of this bride to be. Makes sense since Robin Scherbatsky, like us Blink gals , loves her some Joie!

We promise you will leave looking legen… wait for it… dary!
For all you gals in need of a creative date night or a girl’s night, look no further than the Trolley Hop! We are partial to the Main/Market one, which happens the first Friday of every month… that’s tomorrow, August 2nd, ladies!
At the last hop, I witnessed a fashion faux pas… a a super cute girl wearing a super wrong outfit. Her look was spot on for a fun night out in a big city… but it was definitely not right for a trolley hop.
As you know, we live to dress you Louisville gals… so we’ve pulled together an appropriate ensemble for such an evening.
Pair with sandals or wedges and you are in perfect form to explore the NuLu area.
If afterward you’re in the mood to embrace your inner hipster, swing by Garage Bar on Market for their Ginger Shandy… it’s the ideal summer beverage made with ginger ale, PBR, and bourbon!
Like most of the world, we have a little BIG thing for Ryan Gosling. Turns out, this blonde hottie has a penchant for plaid.
Our newest shipment from Alicia Bell includes a pink plaid button-up, which inspired us to create an outfit sure to catch Ryan’s piercing gaze :)
When sporting this pattern, try coordinating with feminine pieces. We combined this shirt (Alicia Bell, $220) with fitted distressed denim (Hudson, Collin Skinny in Vintage Napoli, $190) and added some va va voom with chunky heels (Vince, Astrid, $375.)
We think it’s pretty cute…. possibly even cuter than Eva Mendez ;)
We Blink girls love Downton Abbey. (We may or may not have a picture of Matthew Crawley hanging in our back room.) In honor of this past Sunday’s season finale, we are dedicating this post to the individual styles of the three Grantham daughters and the designer labels exclusive to Blink Boutique.
Lady Mary & Shoshanna
Lady Mary, oh how you have grown on me! Initially, I held this stern eldest daughter with little regard. Her unforgiving nature and initial mistreatment of the gorgeous Matthew Crawley turned me off. (Granted, I too would be fussy if forced to wear a corset!)
Shoshanna would be my label of choice for the feminine Lady Mary. Shoshanna Gruss launched her line in November 1998, and prides herself on attention to detail and impeccable tailoring. Like Lady Mary’s style, her pieces are classic and feminine while also on trend.
Lady Mary’s Blink essentials would be Shoshanna’s Deanna, a navy peplum dress, and the Sabrina, a black and white geometric print dress. Both frocks celebrate the peplum and geometric spring trends, while also retaining elements of classic colors and traditional silhouettes.
Lady Edith & Vince
In my opinion, Lady Edith has undergone the greatest transition of all the Grantham sisters. However, regardless of her current status as unnoticed farm hand, jilted bride, or outspoken journalist, she consistently chooses basics necessary in any wardrobe.
Vince would be perfect for someone as practical as Edith. Founded in 2002 and popular with celebrities like Kate Hudson and Cate Blanchett, Vince clothing is known for essentials in superior materials. Even though many pieces are minimal in design, they also have an unexpected playful quality.
Although he is technically married, I am all for Edith dating her reserved editor Mr. Gregson. A perfect date night ensemble would be the pairing of Vince’s leather flare skirt and shirt tail tee, a look that embodies conservative glamour.
Lady Sybil & Joie
Lady Sybil is the rule breaker of the family. She attended political rallies, was a self-proclaimed feminist, and even ran off with the socialist chauffer! Her rebellious tendencies pertain to her style as well. (We all remember her trotting into the parlor and boldly showing off her teal pantsuit!) Since she loves bright colors and daring patterns, Joie would be a spectacular match for the sweet tempered Sybil.
Joie, a Southern California line, designs for “savvy, fashion minded, modern woman.” The pieces are casual and comfortable with pops of color and flirtatious prints. A summer outfit suited for Sybil would be the tiny striped Kimble shorts and fitted crochet Addler sweater. The look combines different textures for an affect so unexpectedly cool, it would need someone as forward thinking as Lady Sybil to wear it.
