Trip Recap: NOLA

Hey y’all and thanks for stopping by today!

I wanted to recap my three outfits of my weekend and share with you the places I wined and dined. Scroll through to read about my trip and shop my looks!

NOLA Food

Blaze – Blaze is a build your own pizza joint and it is DELISH! There are keto and gluten free options. I went with the traditional red sauce and mozzarella. I added pepperoni, bacon, oregano, and salt. It’s cooked in a brick oven and ready to serve. There are several locations all over New Orleans so definitely stop by!

Willa Jean – I love this New Orleans staple! It is southern cooking at its finest. We started with the artichoke + cheese dip and finished with the biscuit and sausage gravy. They also have the BEST frozen drinks. I stared with the Frose, but then switched to the Strawberries ‘n Cream. Willa Jean is a NOLA must stop if you’re visiting!

Molly’s Rise and Shine – Y’all. This place was a first try for me this go-round in New Orleans. I got a biscuit with egg, cheddar, and sausage. This place is an homage to your childhood with a large Clark Griswald on the wallpapered wall. It’s an awesome spot that’s perfect for breakfast!

Other spots I went to this past weekend included Tomas Bistro for a rehearsal dinner and Race + Religious for my last wedding of 2019. It was an absolute great time!

Confessions of a Gingham Gal

What’s one of the continuing trends S/S 18? GINGHAM! I am a sucker for anything gingham and the top below is no exception, especially when it’s OFF THE SHOULDER and has AMAZING SLEEVES!

Mardi Party Recap

Y’all. It’s taken me a straight up week to recover from the whirlwind that is Mardi Gras.

I have been going to Mardi Gras ever since I was at Ole Miss, but this year was a little different as I joined the Krewe of Nyx and RODE in Mardi Gras.

Here I am in all my blue-haired glory!

The weather was absolutely awful due to freezing rain (hence the clear poncho over my costume). At one point I even used koozies as gloves. Even with all the weather issues, I still had a good time with my gal pals, Alex and Jordan. We laughed through our pain and said we’d never make it on Survivor (dramatic, we know). It also helped when we got to see members of our families (Frickspicks snapped this pic for me) on the parade route! This was a once in a lifetime experience and how cool will this story (and pics) be for the grandkids one day?

The rest of our short trip was spent in recovery mode. We stayed at Hotel Indigo on St. Charles and were really close to everything, including the Red Dog Diner and Sucre, the cutest sweet shop. On Friday, we went down to the French Quarter and grabbed some lunch at Palace Cafe and walked down to the H&M, where I found the cutest dress!

One of the things I love the most about NOLA is the architecture. From the shotgun houses to French Provincial, it all feels very Old World. The city is alive and going all day, every day, and each time I visit, I feel like I get more and more excited to come back again.

We were also in New Orleans a few weeks ago for a Mardi Gras Ball, and stayed in the French Quarter. This go-round we stayed in the Garden District. These houses are off of St. Charles around Prytania and Harmony. How amaze are these homes?

From the food, to the sights, to all the action, I absolutely love this city and can’t wait to plan my next trip back.

To all the adventures to come – Liza
