Bluegrass Unbridled Event at Outlet Shoppes of the Bluegrass

Thank you to The Outlet Shoppes of the Bluegrass for sponsoring this post.  All opinions are my own, as always. This post also contains affiliate links.

This past Saturday, one of my blogging besties, Nicole from What Nicole Wore, and I hosted a trend talk at the Outlet Shoppes of the Bluegrass as part of their Bluegrass Unbridled event. The event was to celebrate the unveiling of their new art installations throughout the shops. Today I’m recapping that event and sharing what we wore.

First, the Center Court horse was unveiled.  It is an absolute gorgeous horses with tons of bright colors! It is one of five painted horse sculptures that the Outlet Shoppes just installed (I’ll show the rest at the end of my post).
Then Nicole and I did our trend talk.  We talked about this springs hottest trends, and showcased our outlet finds. Some of the trends we talked about are florals, blush everything, graphic tees, colored pants, and block heels.  Kane came on stage with us to showcase his spring outfit as well:)

The trend talk was immediately followed by a family festival.  There was balloon twirling–Kane got a balloon bunny!  Kids could participate in stick horse races and even get their faces painted!  The Outlet Shoppes were also handing out treat bags that looked like horses will some fun goodies inside for the kids.  It was fun to walk around and look at the other horses too. My fav was the Center Court horse, and Chauncey’s fav was definitely the bourbon horse!
We had such a great time! I’ve always been a huge fan of the Outlet Shoppes of the Bluegrass, and I absolutely love how they become a destination in the Bluegrass. They appreciate the history and culture of the area, and are dedicated to showcasing that connection. 

Nice to meet you!
