What I Wore: White Linen Night

I tend to hibernate in the summer, which means a lot of  missed social events on account of the sweltering heat and/or rainstorms. This past Saturday, I decided to get off my lazy ass and head downtown for White Linen Night, an annual art event. As the name suggests, patrons don white clothing while traipsing through art galleries.  I dressed the part by wearing a white button down with a blush chiffon bottom, paired with my favorite pair of cream colored jeans. I fit right in, but looked a little more creative than just buying a white linen dress and calling it a day. Wearing jeans to an outdoor event in August? Not the smartest idea, but at least I complied with the dress code- sort of.

Photo shoot: Restaurant August

Given that I used to work in fine dining and now run a style blog, I’m frequently asked what to wear when dining out. To that, my usual reply is if you are shelling out big bucks on a fantastic meal, why not surrender to the experience and dress up? A few months back, I collaborated with some fantastic people to produce a photo shoot at Restaurant August. Our ladies looked fresh and modern, with a hint of vintage inspiration that played off the opulence of the dining room.

 Huge thanks to the entire team that made this happen, including Restaurant August for graciously letting us shoot and to Leslie Almeida, for her location and salon coordination. You can see the behind the scenes photos on the  Slow Southern Style Facebook page.
