Fashion Friday – Black and White Summer Dress

Happy Fashion Friday!

I’ve had some special company (he/she doesn’t want me to write that their house is sitting empty :-)) in town since Wednesday, so I’ve been playing tourist for a big chunk of the week.  It’s always fun to explore Asheville and definitely made this week a little more fun.

How has your week been?

For Fashion Friday today I’m taking you back to Barnsley Resort.  As I mentioned Monday, this trip is actually a work trip for the hubs.   As part of the conference, we always get to go to a nice dinner party one of the nights.

This year the party was outside at the ruins of an old plantation at Barnsley Resort.

I settled on this light linen dress with a halter top and tie around the waist.  It feels elegant, but it still very appropriate for an outdoor party in Georgia in June.

I think the look is universally flattering and the classic black and white pattern never goes out of style.

I also like this dress for a work event because the length is perfect- not too short!

The only problems I had (and this has nothing to do with fashion) is now I really want a big tree swing in my backyard!

Haha– I’m such a big kid!

I hope you guys have a great weekend!  I’ll be entertaining my guest this weekend AND it looks like my Brother is coming over from Charlotte again.  Which basically makes me over the moon happy.  He makes everything more fun 🙂

I hope to see you back Monday!  I’m sharing another round of Things I’m Loving Lately with some real goodies.

    This is such a lovely ensemble! I agree the black & white color scheme is classic. Also, linen is perfect for the current temps. You look beautiful, Julie.

    Happy Friday, enjoy your company 🙂

    Simple and cute! I love pairing black and white with a colorful handbag or some bright jewelry. One of my favorite combos!

      Love that idea! A pop of color is NEVER a bad idea.

    I’m such a weirdo, but I do not like swings. I get super motion sick so I tend to stay away from swinging 🙁 I’m heading into NYC for my best friends brunch. I can’t wait!

      Oh no!!! Stay away!!! Glad you had a fun weekend!

    Great dress. I have noticed a LOT of black and white on TV folks recently, too.
    Playing host is such fun when you can enjoy your locale and your company. Have a good weekend.
