Summer is over, the school routine is rolling, and fall is upon us.  And is it just us, or are calendars filling up super fast??  Our clients have no shortage of fun things to dress for this fall – and this is something we are all very thankful for.  Speaking of fun events, one of Nashville’s favorite events is happening next week – Sunset Safari!  Our personal stylists thought it would be fun to share some style inspiration with you today on what to wear for Sunset Safari at the Nashville Zoo at Grassmere.


What To Wear For Sunset Safari At The Nashville Zoo

Sunset Safari is a beloved Nashville tradition that fundraises for our zoo here in town.  We know many people who are planning to attend this event!  Some go every year with their girlfriends, and others go with couples or coworkers.  Regardless, it’s always a fun night.  Cocktails, food, and no kids at the zoo – what’s not to love?  In fact, the event was named one of NFocus magazine’s Best Parties.  The event features food and drinks from some of the town’s favorite eateries, such as Kayne Prime, Henley, Char, STK Steakhouse, and Tempered Fine Chocolates.  There is live entertainment and of course those special animal hosts we love so much.  To learn more about this event or to purchase tickets, click here.

Whether you are attending Sunset Safari…  Or a similar outdoor, relatively casual event…  It can sometimes be tricky to figure out what to wear.  Though these types of events can be fundraisers, they aren’t typically cocktail attire.  And most likely, there is a lot of walking involved.  But, it is a night out after all.  And it is always fun to have an excuse to dress up and go out, even if casually!

Let’s first look at a look that Katie can just rock. And that is distressed jeans and a top.  We love this classic linen button-up shirt offset with a pair of distressed denim.  Paired with traditional cognac sandals, this look gives off a laid back but put together vibe for a fun night out.

A Few More Styled Looks For A Dressy Casual Outdoor Event

We often have clients ask us how to wear sneakers with a slip dress.  Well, here is a great example of how to do that! Dana’s look is chic and so fun…  And the perfect mixture of casual and dressy for an event like this one.  We love how she has layered a fun cropped black denim jacket over her dress here.  You never know, you might get lucky with a beautiful, cool fall night!

There are those faux leather shorts again.  You guys might be tired of us talking about them by now, but hey, we love them.  They are SO flattering on all body types and ages and are under $60!  SEB has kept it simple with a white button-up shirt and pretty ankle wrap sandals.  A super fun look that is also functional!

Love this tiered maxi dress that Katey chose…  The color and silhouette are perfect for a dressy casual event outside in the fall.  Pair the dress with some statement earrings, your favorite bangles, and gold sandals to complete the look.
