Q: Tell me about Lou What Wear and how got started?
A: Lou What Wear is a real life + style blog based with a bit of a local twist. I try to share about Louisville and it’s great and supremely creative people, stores, products and more as often as possible. But it’s also just a blog where I can share what I am loving and a little slice of my, often messy and unorganized, life. I know there are a lot of blogs out there sharing such a beautifully, perfect aesthetic and while I love that, it’s just not me. I have three kids, a full time job so life is always a little chaotic.
I started the blog while working at an unfulfilling job where I wanted a creative outlet. At the time, back in 2011, there were not as many blogs and there were very few in Louisville. I wanted to do something that shared Louisville’s style which morphed into my sharing more of my personal style and life.
Q: Describe yourself in 3 words.
A: Driven, Outspoken, Fun-Loving
Q: What is your favorite quote?
A: “Go confidently in the direction of your dreams, live the life you imagined.” Thoreau
Q: What is your favorite coffee in local Lou?

Q: What is your favorite local eatery?
A: Ahh this is a hard one. I live for a great dinner at Jack Fry’s but I love Feast (those tots), Mama’s BBQ (the best wings) and Harvest… I could seriously go on for days on this one.
Q: What tips can you give us for what to wear this holiday season?
A: 1. Fancy holiday event
A dress you feel great in. Every girl knows the feeling when you put on a dress, it fit perfectly and you just feel amazing. Right now I am loving all the black lace options out. They are great for the holidays with a festive heel, bold earrings and fun lipstick. But you can also wear them to weddings or other parties all year.
A: 2. Family holiday party
I like to be a little more comfortable for a family gathering (Give me all the cookies). I love a cozy but chic poncho sweater over leggings or dark denim. Or you can go for a simple shift dress with boots. I’m especially loving the over-the-knee options right now.
Q: What are three clothing "must haves" this season?
A: 1. Black Coated Denim
2. A go-anywhere coat (I love the Regent Coat at J.Crew)
3. Black leather boot
