As September arrives, we couldn’t be more excited to welcome cooler temperatures and all of the fantastic events happening in Birmingham this month! We’ve teamed up with two fabulous local boutiques, Shea Davis and Tulipano, to pull together nine beautiful looks for wherever your September calendar takes you. And what better backdrop is there than the top of the ‘ham at Vulcan Park & Museum?!
Each of our models this month is a representative of the September events we’ve chosen to feature. Valecia Williams is a March of Dimes board member and is representing Signature Chefs at the Club, Cristina Almanza is the face of Fiesta at Linn Park, and Kimberly Florence, a member of the Vulcan marketing team, is modeling for Vulcan AfterTunes. All of their outfits are perfect for their cherished event and for welcoming the fall season with open arms.
Now, let’s get to styling.

Grab your date, family or friends, and head to the top of Birmingham as Logan Ledger graces the stage on September 22 or as Griffin House brings the magic to the Magic City on September 29. Bring a blanket and enjoy delicious bites, drinks and family-friendly activities starting at 1 p.m. The shows start at 3 p.m. on each date. This is a can’t-miss event for visitors and locals alike!
What to Wear: Oh, how we love September in Birmingham. For this event, we suggest keeping it cool and casual. We suggest a flowy sundress or simple skirt and t-shirt combo for an outdoor event, especially a concert, as it is a simple way to look stylish while staying comfortable. We’ve also paired a fun, vintage band tee with a distressed pair of jeans for a laidback, casual look. Whether you opt for a dress, skirt, or jeans, you’ll enjoy a cool(er) afternoon on top of the Magic City at Vulcan AfterTunes.

Wrap up the fabulous month of September taking in the sights, sounds and delicious bites at Fiesta, Alabama’s largest celebration of Hispanic culture and heritage. This event features authentic Latin food, Hispanic music, family-friendly activities and so much more. Enjoy the gorgeous weather as you immerse yourself in all that Fiesta has to offer! Festivities kick off at 12 p.m.
What to Wear: Think bright, bold, and colorful for this lively outdoor event. We’ve paired together some beautiful looks that are both functional and chic. We love combining a printed top with muted jeans that nod to both the season and the incredibly unique event that Fiesta is. Fiesta is also a great opportunity to break out a fun dress with a bold pattern or a jumpsuit that shows you’re ready to celebrate Hispanic culture! Regardless of what style you choose, you’ll have a blast sending off September at Fiesta.
Enjoy a stylish September, Birmingham!
