The Harvest Moon Party fundraiser and birthday celebration for Bobby Lanier Farm Park is back for its second year. This time around, this event at the park will feature food stations from 25 locally loved chefs and restaurants, signature cocktails and a special performance by The Sensation Band. Eat, drink and dance to support Germantown’s Bobby Lanier Farm Park, a 10-acre education and demonstration center for sustainable living through agriculture and stewardship. It is sure to be filled with entertainment and enjoyment for everyone! For a summer evening outfit that is both fashion-forward and elegant, look no further than Joseph. The fashionistas in their stylish store kept us on top of our fashion game with these stunning looks.
What to Wear: For a community-oriented event like Harvest Moon Party, you want to put your best foot forward. Find an outfit that is casual enough for a relaxing farm setting, but chic enough to feel cool and confident. Temperatures are still high, so breathable fabrics and flowy silhouettes are a must. Don’t shy away from bright colors or fun patterns to give your outfit an extra element of summer fun.

Great news for all the gals out there who love to LTB (Pure Barre slang for “lift, tone, burn”), there is a new class hitting Pure Barre studios on August 14. Pure Empower is a high-intensity, low-impact, full-body barre workout that combines classic barre exercises with cardio.
What to Wear: For Pure Barre class, you need clothes that will breathe, stretch and move with your body, especially during some of the more challenging exercises. But you also want something that’s got some style and sass for your after-barre errands. The Pure Barre boutique stocks apparel that will have you jumping out of bed for morning class because you can’t wait to wear your latest workout look.
Looks #3 and #4:
Savor those last carefree summer days by the pool to get that final water fix before back-to-school — and back-to-reality. The splash parks at Shelby Farms, Beale Street Landing and CMOM are great for little ones, and the City of Memphis pools are always free and open to the public. When hitting the pool, you want to feel comfortable and confident, and A Fitting Place mined their diverse collection of bathing suits and cover-ups for these fabulous poolside looks!
What to Wear: If your water wardrobe needs a little late-summer facelift, you can still snag some lovely cover-ups from A Fitting Place. These beautiful looks make it easy to sit poolside and run errands without having to change clothes.
