What happens when you descend into fantasy land (aka New Orleans) for an awesome trip with 3 of your favorite blogger friends? A whole lot of picture taking debauchery is what happens. There was also a ton of eating and drinking which is a whole different post in itself. I'm trying hard to be excited about being back but so far my head is still elsewhere. Christine, Keiko and I had way too much fun playing around in this city. How we got out alive is beyond me.
The trip allowed me to start playing around with spring gear and it's always tough to throw on a strappy dress when your arms are ghastly pale. My body nearly freaked out at the feeling of sweat and I forgot for a second what it was like because it has been so cold for soo long at home.
Next trip I promise to do a whole post on packing. Somehow I always manage to have more options than I think and it takes a little bit of creativity to make the contents of your suitcase go further. This dress is a perfect easy dress and the length begs for platforms so that I don't look frumpy. These shoes are pretty interesting because they have a unique shape.. part flatform, part curved heel, part platform sandal... Pretty comfortable. I walked about 3 miles in them to get to this famous cemetery. You can see the humidity evolution in my hair from that walk if you look closely. Ahh summer, time to break out the curls.
So many more pics to come, you guys! I also have some great recommendations for New Orleans that I'll put together for you.
