in the changing room – holiday tripping

A change from the normal denim jacket (and to find one with sleeves long enough for my arms is saying something).
Crochet dress, long marbled dress & denim jacket: Forever 21. Necklace: Vintage
End of next month (well, next month is technically tomorrow from the time of writing this post), I travel to New Orleans jazz fest – my annual pilgrimage with friends.
Usually I slum around in either airy floor length dresses (shocker) or short dresses with bikini/bandeau underneath and an old hat with shades.
Above are two recent pieces that will definitely get rolled up in the suitcase.
The denim jacket is to wear from tomorrow when NY heats up.
Finally. I can leave the leather jacket at home.

    I love the New Orleans Jazz Fest! I went for the first time last year and had a blast. My best friend was living in New Orleans for the year, so I was visiting her. It was great! I love all the HATS people wear down there. They really come in handy too with all the sun. Have fun!

    ummm so i have scoped out all of these items too!
    the marbled dress looks so good, but i really really love the crochet one – perfect as a bikini cover-up! and i hear you on the jacket arm length thing; i too have monkey arms.
    hopefully we get the H&M dress in shipment tomorrow! =)
