Summer is beginning to wind down, but we’re not quite ready for that pumpkin spice latte just yet. There are still lots of fun events to enjoy before summer ends and the excitement of fall begins. So, we solicited the expertise of our stylist extraordinaire, Tracy Varga of Tracy Varga Group, to help us create the perfect looks for this month’s endeavors.

This August, we’ve selected three exciting events: The Kentucky State Fair, Old Lou Brew Craft Beer Festival and Chocolate Fest 2019. The gorgeous clothes from local boutiques Mabel and Moss, Lemon Tree and That Cute Little Shop are worn by models from Heyman Talent. All of these beautiful looks were shot in Louisville’s own Central Park, where Old Lou Brew will take place.

Here’s what to wear to Louisville’s August events!

The Event: Chocolate Fest 2019

If death by chocolate sounds like the perfect way to go, this event is for you! Chocolate Fest 2019 at the Mellwood Art & Entertainment Center will feature chocolate, entertainment, light bites, spirits and more. The festival is from 7 p.m. to 11 p.m. and tickets are $45 in advance and $55 at the door, with all proceeds benefiting the Kentuckiana AIDS Alliance. Note this is a 21+ event.

What to Wear: This is the night to get a little fancy with your girlfriends. Break out that dress or jumpsuit you’ve been saving for something special, throw on your heels and your favorite earrings, and get ready for a fun night full of delicious treats. Here’s what to wear to Chocolate Fest 2019.
