We can never get enough Plaid by Rails. Pair this piece with white for now, and denim with boots once things cool down even more.

Add a little color to your table by placing some fresh strawberries in a silver bucket. Insert a couple flags and you have yourself an adorable (and edible) centerpiece!

Dip the end of a large mashmellow into water followed by red sprinkles, flip it over and repeat on the other end. Place the marshmellows on lollipop sticks and into a clear vase filled with jelly beans for a festive sweet treat!

How do I love my Vince tanks? Let me count the ways.

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! 1 3 PicMonkey Collage 2

Need some flair?

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? ;)

Vogue… Strike A Pose

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!

Image

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?

Just Joie

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!

Find outfit inspiration below and stop by Blink for even more ensemble options :)  

We promise you will leave looking legen… wait for it… dary!

a hopping night!

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!

Our personal faves are Red Tree for eclectic home decor and Hillbilly Tea for yummy organic teas.

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.

Trolley Hopping

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!

Happy Hopping!

Ryan’s Mad For Plaid

Image

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 ;)
