A friend of mine and fellow Los Angeles based blogger, Kelly GoLightly, is known for throwing fabulous events in LA and Palm Springs. Her mad decor and entertaining skills, coupled with a flare for fashion, offer her readers (and her friends!) amazing DIYs and How-Tos when it comes to interiors and entertaining. So, it’s only customary, when someone throws such a fab soiree, to come dressed to impress, right?!
WHAT TO WEAR: SOUTHERN BBQ
There are a few ways to approach an outfit when dressing for a Southern affair. In the south, they keep it classy and conservative. Skirts should be knee length or longer, big bows are encouraged in the hair or on clothing. Wide brim hats are welcome and big sunnies are a must! For colors, think brights, polka dots, black and white or soft hues. Florals add a fun element, too. For men, it’s pretty simple. A bow tie, suspenders, a hat, or pocket scarves are all he needs to get the job done. (Just be sure your man knows how to tie a bow-tie BEFORE driving to the event. #truestory
Myself, pictured with our lovely host Kelly Lee and my handsome man. He is such stud in this picture. GAHH. #sorryhavingamoment
We were so GLAD we went! The event was sponsored by GLAD who not only supplied the containers to take home the amazing food from Heirloom LA, they also supplied the GLAD cheerleading team who surprised all of us while we were enjoying the BBQ. Such a cute idea, don’t you think?
Here are some of the fab blogger babes and attendees. I was a bit late and didn’t make the group photo, but it was one fun group of gals!
Loved Miss Kris Turner’s bow
Laurie’s turban and outfit was perfection.
And of course, some great details. It its, all in the details. :)
Thanks to our lovely host, Kelly Golightly, to Fred Baby for the amazing photos, Heirloom LA of the beautiful and delicious array of food, and to GLAD products.
