About two weeks ago, I packed my bags and headed to New Orleans with my best friend.  She just got engaged recently and a lot of her family is from New Orleans, so we were looking at wedding venues. A lot of wedding venues. Luckily, I was able to take in the sights and get my tourist on between appointments! In the 95 degree weather, my best bet was a pair of jean shorts and a breathable top.  I went with my favorite distressed denim shorts and a flawy blouse from Equipment.  I love this top because although it is super simple as a white collard shirt, it adds a bit of flare and glam with the embroidered collar.

Going from wedding venue to dress shopping, we wanted to wear heels to feel a bit more dressed up so I strapped on my favorite Stuarts and hit the town.  But don’t be fooled though, I brought a pair of flats for the commutes between locations. Those cobblestone streets were not made for heels!

I’m so excited to be able to head back to Nola next year for the wedding and eat more of the southern cooking and beignets!

Congratulations Ashley and Jeff!
