This weekend is the last Keeneland weekend until October which means I am taking in as much as I can! Although I didn’t feel well last weekend, I still get dressed up and spent a few hours with a friend at Keeneland. We had a table available to us, and when you have the chance to sit somewhere with food and free water there is nothing that should keep you away!

That night I was also my sister’s Confirmation sponsor, so my outfit had to be Keeneland and Church appropriate. I love this dress because it can easily transition from day to evening, and work to play. Since this was mostly day time dressing, I went with tan accessories and a statement earring. This was a pretty simple look, but perfect for everything I needed it for!

More Keeneland outfits here, here and here.

Representing an Atmosphere!

lauren allen fashion blog 4-21-15cWhen I style a photo shoot my outfit always seems to reflect the mood board of the photo shoot. It is never something that I do intentionally, but the inspiration seems to take over my whole life, and I just run with it! This outfit was more representative of the atmosphere of the photo shoot that I styled recently.

I wore this outfit to style a fashion segment for a Fox 56 Kentucky Derby TV show that they are working on. No, I did not get to be in front of the camera to talk about the trends, but it felt appropriate to wear a suit-type outfit anyways. The idea of this opportunity just seemed so professional that I wanted my outfit to show the business side of me with my typically fashion twist. There is just something about putting on a blazer that makes me feel like I can run the world!

The segment should air in about a week, so I will share screen shots if possible on here once it comes out!

Exciting Opportunities!

Lauren takes ItalyI have some very exciting news to share!! Through my digital art minor I have been given the opportunity to study abroad this summer! I will be in Italy from May 20- June20. While there I will be taking photography and a social media content creation class. Could anything be more perfect?! This is not something that I ever imagined myself doing, but when I heard about it, the trip just seemed too good to pass up. While there I will bounce around Florence, Siena and Rome with a few other quick trips thrown in there.

Now is there time for you to chime in, I need all of your tips! Where do I go? What do I do? Most importantly, what do I wear??

While I am there I plan to blog about my adventures and outfits! The count down begins now, only one more month!


Wedding Wednesday!

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to model for Divine on Broadway‘s fashion show! Captive Memories Photography took some amazing pictures before the show, and I just had to share some of them (more HERE). I am one of the those girls that has had her wedding planned since elementary school, so getting to wear two different wedding dresses in one day was a dream come true! The only thing that was better than the dresses was the women that I got to spend the day with. My mom wore a mother of the bride dress, so I got to do the fashion show with her. All of the models were really a lot of fun to spend the day with, including Miss Kentucky, Ramsey Carpenter!

Pictures from the actual fashion show can be seen on the Tops in Lex website!

Keeneland Fashion!

My favorite part about living in Lexington is Probably the two months a year that Keeneland is opened! Everyone puts on their nicest outfits and heads to the race track for a fun day of betting on horse races and people watching. There is no dress code, so you do see a little bit of everything, but the general consensus is classic with a modern twist. This week we had family friends in town, and it was opening weekend of Keeneland which made for the perfect Saturday!

Before heading to Keeneland for the afternoon, I actually pulled outfits for a fashion at the races segment for a TV show (more about that another day). For these adventures I wore a conservative midi skirt (similar) and showed a little more skin with a fun crop top (similar). As you have probably noticed by now, I seriously cannot stop wearing the cropped jean jacket. It goes with everything!

If you ever get the chance to go to Keeneland, don’t pass up the opportunity!
