What I wore: New Orleans, LA

When I asked y'all what you wanted to see more of on the blog, I was surprised it was outfit posts.  
surprised, but also very flattered!

There's something about wearing an outfit you love that makes your whole outlook on the day brighter.  You just can't help but stand up a little straighter and smile a little wider when you're looking cute.  

Let me be the first to say, I look like a darn hot mess 95% of the time.  When you see me on here, that's generally the 5% of when I take the time to do my hair, make up, and put some thought into an outfit.  it's usually one out of three.  you're really lucky to get 2/3.  
and daaaang girlfriends, if you get all three- it is a special occasion.  
My time in New Orleans made it into the special occasion category.
What's a better time to get all dolled up than your sweet Cousins Mardi Gras Debutante Ball?  

So I've gotta show you what we wore (:  
Bonus: my cute mom's outfits too! 

{h&m dress, collected bangles from friends, grandmother, antique stores}
{gap high waisted trousers, jessica lorren bag, topshop purse, h&m black belt, jones new york striped shirt, forever21 blazer}
{maxazria Dress}
{saks}
{bcbg}

Next up, New Orleans Photos!  This might take a few posts . . .
It's my favorite American city after all, wouldn't do it justice with just one.

  5. Hi Sarah!

    I am new to your blog and visiting from Jenni's Story of My Life. I think Jenni and I have similar tastes in blog-reads, so I wanted to stop by and check out your little space here...so glad that I did!

    Loving these photos of you and your Momma - could you both BE more gorgeous? You could easily pass for sisters! I've only read through a few of your posts thus far, but I like what I see, so I'm following you, for sure. :)

    Looking forward to reading along and getting to know more about you! I hope you are having a wonderful week!
