original makers club of louisville

Although I haven't lived there for some time now, my hometown of Louisville, Kentucky will always be one of my favorite places in the world.  For a small city that goes largely unnoticed, there are some pretty great things happening there all the time. 

One of the things I love most about Louisville is the vibrant culture and strong support for local businesses.  So, I'm very pleased to have recently discovered the Original Makers Club of Louisville: a website (and book) dedicated to highlighting the city's local treasures.

I'm so happy to see some of my favorite places on the website, and am also pleasantly surprised to see some things that are new to me.  I'll be back home for a wedding and to visit family next week, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I'll have some time to go out and rediscover my little city with the help of this website.

Oh, and they have a pretty great blog, so don't forget to visit that too.

henley royal regatta

Last weekend I went to the Henley Royal Regatta

I'm a crew novice - I've never been to any kind of rowing event before - and absolutely loved the atmosphere and culture associated with the sport.  I'm lucky enough to have a friend who is not just talented at rowing, but is pretty much as good as it gets (he's on the Olympic rowing team for England).  We got the VIP treatment - tickets to the Stewards enclosure and for the Leander rowing club. 

To the event I wore: accordion pleat skirt - Zara; shirt - Sea NY; belt - Anthropologie; necklace - vintage.

a lowcountry picnic + jack rudy cocktail co.

A very talented friend from Kentucky, Brooks Reitz and some of his creative friends in Charleston, put together this idyllic picnic for Matchbook Magazine.  Cocktails were provided courtsey of Brooks' hand crafted tonic from Jack Rudy Cocktail Company - which I've tasted, and is truly amazing.
