Welcome to February, Louisville! January is now in our rear-view mirror, the days are getting just a little longer and, if you’re like us, it’s the time of year when we’re itching to shake up that winter wardrobe. We’ve highlighted a few fun Louisville events — Tailspin Ale Fest and the 41st Annual Humana Festival Kickoff Party — as perfect opportunities to pull some new versatile pieces into your closet rotation. We also firmly believe that Valentine’s Day should be celebrated with a romantic date night in something that makes you shine. We selected our Louisville February looks from Peacock Boutique, Liv Boutique and General Eccentric – all locally owned shops we love.
The Event: Valentine’s Day Date Night in Louisville
- Tuesday, February 14, 2017
- Anywhere that feels like a romantic night out
- Keep it simple or the sky’s the limit — just get out there with your sweetheart!
Yes, Valentine’s Day falls on a Tuesday this year, but that means you celebrate with romantic date night either on the actual day or on the weekend before or after. Louisville is full of cozy spots and elegant options for you to look simply stunning. Get out, get romantic (whether it’s your first date or one of too many to count) and have fun with your favorite Valentine!
What to Wear: Go for something that makes you feel like your most gorgeous version of you. This is definitely the time to pull on your favorite dress or to find a new favorite with a perfect fit. We noticed lots of black with the pale, sophisticated pink in shades that work for almost everyone. Time to stash your go-to sweater and jeans (at least for one night).
The Event: Tailspin Ale Fest
- Saturday, February 18, 2017
- Central Airways Hanger, Bowman Field airport
- Event tickets start at $45 and can be purchased here.
With local food trucks, live music and plenty of craft brews to choose from, this casual 21-and-over event benefits a great local nonprofit, Dare to Care. The scenic Bowman Field location makes this a fun way to get out of late-winter hibernation with friends.
What to Wear: Keep it sophisticated-casual, and dress in layers. February weather in Louisville can be tricky, and the temperatures in an airplane hanger can be pretty tough to regulate, depending on what mother nature delivers that day. Comfy boots or pretty sneakers are the way to go, and a cross-shoulder bag is always the best solution.
The Event: 41st Annual Humana Festival Kickoff Party
- Thursday, February 23, 2017
- Reception & Presentation @ Actors Theatre of Louisville
- Tickets are free but must be reserved here starting February 1, 2017
This long-running festival of new American plays commands international attention. Get a free glimpse of the excitement and some of the artists that bring it to life at this unique celebration. Help Actors Theatre launch this incredible Festival in style.
What to Wear: While anything goes at this kind of event, it’s your chance to showcase a little glamour or let your artistic side shine! Chic and simple always works, of course. Standard issue black is a perfect fit, especially with a pop of contrasting white, and can be your best canvas for your favorite piece of statement jewelry.
Have a great February!
