It’s my first White Linen Night EVER. Even after living in New Orleans for four years, I actually never had the chance to attend this event. It would normally fall in the middle of my family vacation. So, this year makes it extra special as it’s my first year “adulting” in my hometown.
I know it will be dreadfully hot, but wanted to share some white linen night dress inspiration including this little Nordstrom number.
WHAT I’M WEARING
This exact JOA dress is soldout, but if you’re looking to buy JOA dresses, know that they do run big. I purchase XS in this brand. In the meantime, I’ve included some white linen night inspiration below and don’t worry these dresses all come in white. Could be good for all those engaged gals out there 😉

You might recognize this dress since I recently wore it to a beautiful wedding here in Houston. To tell you the truth, I didn’t originally buy the dress thinking of the wedding, but when the occasion arose, I thought, why not?
It turned out to be so versatile and cutest wrap dress in my closet for summer! In the look I’m sharing below you’ll notice I pair it with a boater hat and nude slides for a casual look. I’ve wanted a boater hat for the longest time, but I was so afraid to buy the first hat I came across. Instead, I waited it out and this little hat is my constant companion. It’s great to protect your face and shoulders from the sun and keep a beautiful shade. Living in a city like Houston, it has definitely come in handy!
For the wedding, it was all about accessorizing because it needed to go from day to night. I was inspired by Olivia Munn’s latest makeup Instagram and did my makeup very bold that evening. I chose a bold pink lip, smokey eyes and curls. It was my first time truly curling my short hair, so I was a little nervous how it would turn out, but check it out for yourself on my Instagram.
I’ve included direct links to my entire outfit at the end and don’t forget to follow me on Insta this weekend. I’m headed out West for the first time and I will be sharing my final destination on my Instagram story 🙂
