Good Morning readers, when the Emeril Lagasse Foundation asked me if I’d be interested in highlighting the attire for the Emeril Lagasse Foundation’s Boudin, Bourbon & Beer Festival I immediately jumped at the opportunity. It wasn’t until after I agreed that I realized I had no idea what “cajun cocktail” attire meant! Fortunately, I was able to track down some friends who attended the event last year and they told me they wore cowboy boots and dresses.  If you know me, you know that I have never owned a pair of cowboy boots. So I decided to come up with my own version of “cajun cocktail” attire.

If you saw yesterday’s post then you know that I already styled this dress two different ways for the event. To me, “cajun cocktail” attire means fun and casual with a hint of color and some added flair.  For my first outfit, I paired the dress with an olive vest, ankle boots and a hobo style handbag for an effortlessly chic look. For my second look, I went for a fun and edgy vibe with the suede fringe vest and cross body bag in wine. I added the leg warmers for some stylish details to elevate the whole outfit.

Good Morning readers, I’m so excited to announce that I have partnered up with the Emeril Lagasse Foundation to give away two tickets to their Boudin, Bourbon & Beer Festival at Champions Square in New Orleans on November 7th, 2014.  The festival is co-chaired Emeril Lagasse and Donald Link and not only will the event be held in a much bigger space this year, but it will also mark the foundation’s 4th Annual Boudin, Bourbon & Beer festival.

Champions Square will host 50 of the country’s best chefs who will be cooking up their best boudin dishes. Funds raised at the event benefit Emeril Lagasse Foundation, which supports children’s educational programs, life skills development initiatives, culinary training, and cultural enrichment.

To show you what you can look forward to at the Emeril Lagasse Foundation’s Boudin, Bourbon & Beer Festival, Kaela (my photographer) and I payed Emeril’s restaurant in New Orleans a little visit where I got to experience just a taste of the festival.  I started off with an Autumn Pomme garnished with an apple and a hint of Buffalo Trace.  Next, I enjoyed a refreshing Abita Amber.  Then I finished off with a classic Manhattan and a traditional Old Fashion! Don’t worry, I didn’t drink each entire cocktail! I’m saving that kind of fun for the real festival!

Event Attire: Cajun Cocktail (aka dresses paired with boots)
